Bathtub - definition
A bathtub, bath or tub (informal) is a large container for holding water in which a person may bathe. Most modern bathtubs are made of acrylic or fiberglass, but alternatives are available in enamel on steel or cast iron; occasionally, waterproof finished wood. A bathtub is usually placed in a bathroom either as a stand-alone fixture or in conjunction with a shower.
Modern bathtubs have overflow and waste drains and may have taps mounted on them. They are usually built-in, but may be free-standing or sometimes sunken. Until recently, most bathtubs were roughly rectangular in shape but with the advent of acrylic thermoformed baths, more shapes are becoming available. Bathtubs are commonly white in colour although many other colours can be found. The process for enamelling cast iron bathtubs was invented by the Scottish-born American David Dunbar Buick.
Two main styles of bathtub are common:
Western style bathtubs in which the bather lies down. These baths are typically shallow and long.
Eastern style bathtubs in which the bather sits up. These are known as ofuro in Japan and are typically short and deep.

After some time the use of the bath can choose to replace it. The reason for such a decision may be pouring the water out of the tub while taking a bath, which may indicate that the bath does not have a good run-off. But the replacement of the bath may be caused by the desire to be placed in the bathroom of a new sanitary facilities, which will look more modern and well-maintained. To be able to replace the bath with a new, employed by us plumber will have to weld the plate, in which the tub is built, and then remove the old tub from the bathroom. Installation of a new bathroom bathtub may be combined with replacement pipes for water from the tub so that it will serve us to reliably for many years.
