How do walk-in tubs drain?

Some systems apply a gravitation only drainage system, while other makers offer power-assisted drainage systems. Normally, the drainage system in a walk in tub is attached to the standard bathtub drain, which is threaded into a flat pipe called a waste shoe. The shoe is sealed with a foam washer or putty under its flange. Since a bather cannot leave the tub until all of the water is emptied, the big difference is the fact that producers have tried to reduce the waiting time since sitting there waiting for the water to drain can leave a bather feeling chilled. Some features may cost you more, so it is always wise to inquire.

Most of the walk-in baths available on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity.
