Most people with superficial knowledge of walk in tubs assume them to be a luxury item. They think this is some sort of a tub made for a luxurious and pleasurable bathing experience. This is only partially true. I mean yes, it is true that you will get a luxurious bathing experience when you use one. It wasn’t designed that way though, and this is completely accidental. The walk in tub was invented to solve safety and hazard issues.
Every luxurious addition or trait of the walk in tub arose out of a desire or goal for removing a certain safety issue or problem. Let’s take the fact that you sit down and get immersed in water from all sides. This is a lot like a Jacuzzi, but it was invented for safety reasons. An elderly person can not safely stand up in a regular tub, while having to direct the water stream with one hand, and use another hand to bathe with.
You do have to admit that as far as side effects and unintended consequences go, this has got to be one of the better ones you have heard of in any sort of product.
If you consider what this point really means, you will see that it will make purchases easier for you. If your spouse isn’t that happy about the purchase of a walk in tub, you can bring out the “comfort for entire family” card. Just tell your spouse that it isn’t only grandma that benefits from this tub. Your entire family and your spouse will also benefit from the added luxury.
And if you feel like I am telling you to manipulate or lie, this would be incorrect. What I am telling you is the absolute truth. If you get a walk in tub, you will actually get a comfortable experience for the entire family. It is like getting a Jacuzzi while at the same time saving your parent from injury. The entire family gains in comfort and luxury.
