Bathtubs | Baths

Bathtubs, also known as baths and tubs, are bathroom fixtures with the purpose of holding water for bathing. Commonly made with ceramic, porcelain enameled cast iron, cast acrylic, or fiberglass-reinforced polyester, baths can be used pragmatically for general washing or for a relaxing full-body soak at the end of a long work day. Modern bathtubs come in a range of styles and functional designs based on bathroom layouts, space requirements, and user preferences. Standard variations of bathtub forms include freestanding, alcove, undermounted, drop-in, corner, whirlpool, and walk-in.

How many gallons are in a bathtub?

Although bathtubs come in various shapes and sizes, the standard or commonly seen bathtub is able to hold around 80 gallons (302 liters) of water. A bath uses between 35-50 gallons (132-189 liters) of water.

How do you remove a bathtub?

To remove a bathtub, turn off the water to the bathroom. Using a wrench, disconnect the tub drain while locating the pipes and loosening the connections and/or joints. Slowly pry the tub from the wall, making way from one end to the other. Pulling the tub out is the next step and is typically completed with the help of another person.

How do you unclog a bathroom drain?

To unclog a bathroom drain, remove both the strainer or stopper located over the drain and clean any gunk off either. A drain claw or stick can be inserted down the drain, hooking onto any hair or soap that has clogged the drain. Once this process is complete, test the water. Baking soda and boiling hot water can often instantly unclog the drain when poured directly down it.

Alcove Bathtubs

Alcove bathtubs, also known as apron or skirt baths, are a type of bathtub design that slots into existing spaces surrounded by three walls. Because of its use in these three-walled conditions, only the front face (the apron) is finished vertically as a strategy to save on material and manufacturing costs. Unlike freestanding bathtubs, alcove baths can efficiently incorporate shower setups through the easy addition of shower plumbing into the adjacent walls. The walls of an alcove bathtub also allow for the fixture to be ADA compliant, providing a safer and more comfortable configuration for those users with disabilities or limited mobility. Alcove tubs come in a range of sizes, shapes, and configurations in order to adapt to various existing bathroom dimensions and layouts.

Drop-In Bathtubs

Drop-in bathtubs are fixtures designed to be lowered into pre-built bathroom platforms and are constructed with a finished top edge that can be sealed to the platform. Because no sides of the bath will be visible after being placed into the platform enclosure, drop-in bathtubs are built without any finished sides and are often cost efficient because of this. Drop-in baths are highly adaptable to difficult layout demands, locations, and decor styles and offer their own variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes.

Bathtub Side Clearances

Bathtub Side Clearances refer to the standards of clear space maintained alongside a bathtub fixture. Functioning as an access zone for climbing into and out of a standard 24” (60 cm) high bathtub, this clear space often varies in width depending on the floor plan designs and restrictions.

Bathtub side clearances are recommended to maintain a consistent width of 30” (76 cm), with comfortable clearances set at around 44” (112 cm) and extremely minimal widths at 22” (56 cm).
