The online resource eEhow.com has outlined the most common problems with walk-in bath tubs.
Ehow details walk-in bath tub's lack of comfort and walk-in tub's high purchase and installation costs.
Maureen Gobener, a top ehow commenter, added her first hand experience at the bottom of the article:
"Oh dear I have embarked on a walk-in bath without considering all the ramifications and, yes, they can be difficult. I was unable to stand up from the shiny seat and panicked until my husband helped raise me to a standing position (and he's disabled anyway) then the water drained away for some reason. I managed to shower and water stayed in place, but one has to wait for it to empty and get chilled in the meantime. Think very carefully before embarking on one of these very expensive contraptions. I regret my purchase."
