When it comes to creating a relaxing and therapeutic bathroom experience, attention to detail matters. Our recent project involved a unique challenge: designing a bath that could be filled as deep as possible to maximise submersion for hydrotherapy benefits. The solution? Not one, but two plugs! Let’s dive into the details.

The User’s Requirements

Our client had specific requirements for their bath. Having had a Platform Assisted Bath previously, They sought a deeper, immersive experience that would enhance the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy and relax the young user. Whether it’s easing muscle tension, promoting relaxation, or simply enjoying a soothing soak, the new Assisted Bath needed to deliver.

The Dual Plug Solution

To meet these requirements, we decided to incorporate two plugs into the bath design. Here’s how it works:

  1. Customized Waste and Overflow: We modified the waste and overflow system to accommodate an additional plug. The primary plug serves its usual purpose, allowing water to drain efficiently. But the second plug, positioned higher up, serves a different function.
  2. Sealing the Overflow: The secondary plug is strategically placed at the overflow opening. When the bath is filled to the desired depth, the user can insert this plug to seal the overflow. This prevents water from escaping, allowing the bath to reach its maximum capacity.

Benefits of Dual Plugs

1. Deeper Immersion

By sealing the overflow, the user can achieve a deeper immersion.

2. Tailored Comfort

Different users have varying preferences when it comes to bath depth. With dual plugs, individuals can customise the water level to their liking. Whether you prefer a shallow soak or want to submerge yourself completely, the choice is yours.

3. Hydrotherapy Maximisation

Hydrotherapy relies on water’s healing properties. By allowing users to fill the bath to its maximum capacity, we ensure that they receive the full benefits of warm water therapy.
