circumstances the bath may be used by the special needs bather
and able-bodied bathers. This is true not only in a domestic
home environment but also increasingly in hotels where regulations
are compelling hotel owners to provide a certain number of
rooms equipped for disabled bathing.
In these cases the disabled bath should come with a removable
seat. The hydraulic ram can then be lowered, the seat removed
and the entry point sealed with a blanking plug, this will
remove all trace of the special needs equipment and allow
the bath to function in a traditional way.
