Is there a need for a rapid drain system and are they worth the extra expense when purchasing a walk in tub?
As a dealer representing several different manufacturers of walkin bathtubs and handicapped bathtubs and who offers a range of walk in bathtub prices I am frequently asked about the cost and effectiveness of the rapid drain systems now being offered by some handicap bathtub manufacturers.
The question arises out the fact that with all handicapped bathtubs for wheelchair users and regular walk in baths all require that the user remain in the tub until it is completely empty before opening the door to exit the bathing zone. The concerns seem to be:
1. How long will I have to sit and wait for the handicapped bath tub to empty?
2. Will I get cold while I am waiting?
