Worldwide, 2.5 billion people do not have access to sanitation, including an estimated 1 billion people who use pit latrines and another 1 billion who defecate out in the open. Fortunately, the U.S. is not one of the areas where this is common, and even more fortunately products like pressure assisted toilets, walk in bath tubs, water efficient and water saving toilets, bathroom vanities and sinks, and shower bases are leading the charge in producing some very contemporary and some very modern solutions. Each of these modern inventions leaves a positive mark on consumers.
Walk in tubs, for instance, are normally used for people with limited mobility. They feature rails for safety and a shower base that is quite strong and capable to prevent slipping. Having a strong and durable shower base is quite essential not only for these tubs but also for traditional showers, since a shower base is literally the base of the entire shower. They are commonly located in all kinds of bathrooms including Jack and Jill bathrooms, which feature two doors that are accessible from two separate bathrooms.
Toilets are another area where modern features have boosted performance significantly. Toilets that are efficient with water, for instance, can help the average family save about $50 to $100 per pear on water or wastewater bills. Sadly, they are nothing like the Modern Toilet, a Taiwan based restaurant chain where customers sit on non functional toilets and get served beverages and food in mini toilets, urinals, and bathtubs.
