Converting a bathtub into a shower is becoming more and more popular these days for many people. There are a lot of reasons why.

Ease of Use

It is a lot easier to get in-and-out of a shower than it is to get in and out of a bathtub. Shower conversions also give people the opportunity to sit down while they take a shower. A lot of people find sitting down to take a shower easier, comfier, and a whole lot more convenient. Given the increase in style and comfort, tub to shower conversions in San Antonio is popular with many people, not just retirees. Looking at a demo unit, or pictures should give homeowners a general idea of what they look like.

Finding Installers

What does it take to turn a bath tub into a shower? For starters, you’ll have to get yourself a contractor who knows what they’re doing and has a lot of experience. Ask them about their qualifications and whether this is something they have done before. Check and see if they are licensed and insured. It is also a great idea to get a reference or to look online at reviews for the contractor. The better the reviews, the better your experience should be.

Other Benefits

Showers are also a lot more environmentally friendly. They use a lot less energy than a bathtub does. Most homes built in the 1980s or earlier will have a shower head that gives you well over 5 gallons per minute. You should be looking for a low flow shower head so you can make your output less than half. This way a five-minute shower will save energy, cost, and use less than 12 gallons of water instead of the typical 50 gallons of water that a bath can require. This is a whole lot of savings while being much better for the environment.
