'Walk-in' tubs - for elderly - any good?
We've seen them in stores, but the salespeople weren't too enthusiastic about them, saying these tubs tend to leak.
Are they really all bad? One of the bathrooms in our house will be used by the grandparents, who (grandma, especially) would find it much easier to get into the tub without stepping over the regular tub's wall.
Leaking will not, actually, be a big deal for us, because we are getting the floor-traps in the bathrooms (water on the floor will just drain down instead of staying a puddle). Any other drawbacks to having these? A particular maker you like, if you have such a tub yourself?
