Some units comprise another drain below the entry door to help prevent escapes in the event the door does leak. If this attribute is contained ask.

Durable medical equipment does not include physical changes to a house, just medical equipment and materials which are used to help a patient in and out of a chair or bed, or make use of a shower or bath simpler and safer. Consumer Affairs indicates that you may wish to contact Medicare to see if (for freedom security reasons) a walk in tub is warranted to determine if the equipment could be partially compensated.

Most of the walk-in baths available on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity. In fact, many manufacturers advise that you have a hot water tank that fits at least 50 gallons, although some baths will work effectively should you fill them with 40-60 gallons.
