Who invented bath tubs?
The ancient Romans, along with many other plumbing innovations.
Answer . It depends on the type of valve assembly. Some have a plastic cover that can be removed to reveal a screw. Once the screw is removed, the handle can be pulled off. At that point, the valve stem is the part sticking out. Older style valves have a smaller nut near the end of the valve ste…m. That nut compresses the packing material that keeps water from running out of the stem. The stem itself is threaded into the valve assembly. You should be able to identify it by the hex-head. It is often difficult to break loose, but it will come out if you just turn it hard enough. As you remove it you may need to turn the handle a little to get it out of the valve assembly. They're all different. This is one of those situations where you should be careful if you don't know what you're doing. Make sure the water is turned off first and try to get an idea of what you're opening up. \n. \nAs already indicated, many of the valve assemblies are different. For example, if it's one of the newer type the above directions don't mean anything. (MORE)

Bath tub liners are bad for resale value. Some of them are made of harmful plastics that can leach phalates into the air and your bathwater and can be harmful to your family's health. Neither, Bath tub liners have many disadvantages and require allot of upkeep. liners simply cover up the problem, …and in no way will give you a quality bathtub. You will notice squishy floors when water becomes trapped between the tub and liner, causing mold to grow. Liners use caulk for most of the joints that will need replacing about every five years, depending on use. Most installers are paid to get a job done as fast as possible and it shows, Most liners I have seen, have caulk lines that are horrendous. Refinishing a bathtub is even a worse idea. It will only last from 3 to five years then will chip making it look worse then before. The only way to get a good durable bathroom, is to remodel with new fixtures. A properly remodeled bathroom should last 50 years or more, depending on materials used. Purchasing materials from a DIY center will last about 10 to 15 years before falling apart. Purchasing quality materials from plumbing supplier will last about 50 years. (MORE)

No, you can't give your rabbit a bath in the bathtub. Anyway, it's a very bad idea. Here's why: It's not usually a good idea to bathe a rabbit at all. Rabbits are clean animals and they wash themselves. Baths can be very traumatic for rabbits, and for other reasons the rabbit can become ill from… a bath. So, it's best not to bathe your rabbit at all. If the rabbit is dirty, then you should give it a bath -- but you should also find out why it's dirty and treat the cause! Unless you're absolutely positive your rabbit is healthy (for example, maybe it just jumped into a mud puddle before you could stop it), then you should bring the rabbit to a special vet who has experience and knowledge with rabbits. If you do need to give your rabbit a bath, you should not do it in the bathtub. . One reason why not: the floor is so slippery, the rabbit will become anxious, try to get out, slip and panic, and a panicking rabbit can easily injure itself. . Another reason: leaning over the edge makes it difficult for you to handle the rabbit safely and securely. . A third reason: A bathtub is big, and big spaces make rabbits anxious; it's better to keep the rabbit more enclosed (anxiety can make the rabbit panic and injure itself, also it makes it more of a traumatic experience for the rabbit). . A fourth reason: the water pouring from the tap may not be temperature you expect (especially in older buildings), and you could accidentally burn or chill the rabbit. . A fifth reason: the water pouring from the tap is loud and splashy and can stress the rabbit out (leading to panic and anxiety). For all these reasons, it's best not to use the bathtub; instead, use a baby bath, or a foot bath, or some other small and shallow container; and fill a jug with water to use for pouring and rinsing . If you have to bathe a rabbit, you should follow specific instructions so that you keep the rabbit safe. See the related question below for more details. (MORE)

Osmosis is the process by which water will move through a semi-permeable membrane (in this case, your skin) from one area of higher water concentration to another area of lower water concentration, and since there is a higher concentration of water in the bathtub than in your skin, the water will fl…ow into the outermost layer of your skin, causing the cells that make up this layer to swell. In order to compensate for this increase in surface area, your skin wrinkles. (MORE)
