Out with the Old, In with the New (Bath, that is…)

The bathroom is one of the main rooms in the house that we use each and every day. Why not give it an upgrade by changing out the bath with one that’s more efficient and up-to-date? Mission Kitchen and Bath can help those in the Johnson County area. We service areas including Mission, Overland Park, Prairie Village, and Roeland Park.

There are benefits to changing out a bathtub besides just for appearance’s sake. Typically older baths like Jacuzzis hold water in their pipes so they don’t have to travel very far and there’s water at the ready; however, with newer styles of baths, such as a Jetta air bath, there is no water sitting. Instead, these new baths shoot air through the pipes to begin the water flow.

While this sounds like a downgrade, it’s actually an improvement. Since old baths would hold stagnant water in the pipes, it allowed plenty of time for algae to form and grow in the drain, faucets, jets, and pipes. There’s even a chance that you have no idea it’s even there contaminating your water unless you use a pump on the pipes and see the algae come up to the surface.

Newer baths are not only more hygienic, with no algae water, but also save time and money in the long run. With no water sitting in the pipes, it wastes less water since there is no wait for hot water, and it wastes less energy since it’s just a shot of air moving the water from the water heater to the bath.

Nothing says you have to replace a bath for another bath either. If you find yourself not using a bathtub often and want to change things up, consider removing an existing tub and installing a bath and shower combo to free up some wasted space. What better way to incorporate both functionality and style?

There are so many different options for changing up your bathtub or shower, and with so many new technologies available, you might even have a hard time deciding which one is best for you.
