Tubs & Showers

Today’s bathrooms feature an assortment of shower and tub layout designs. From conventional tub and shower combinations to ornate separate pieces, the possibilities are seemingly endless.

At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing we specialize in all kinds of tub and shower repair and installation. Some of the more popular designs we offer include:

Shower-Tub Combination

The most common residential configuration in today’s home is the shower-tub combination. It is characterized by a standard elongated tub for prone bathing in addition to wall-mounted nozzles for stand-up shower purposes. These designs are especially popular for those with limited space.

Stand-Alone Shower

For homes where space is not an issue, a stand-alone shower can be ideal. With framed and frameless designs that may or may not use swinging doors, stand-alone showers can be outfitted to have multiple nozzles that deliver water flow from a variety of angles. Separate tub and shower installations provide greater flexibility for residential bathing needs.


For many, bathtubs offer the ultimate in relaxation. Bathtubs can either be completely free-standing, like the classic pedestal and claw-footed designs of the 19th century, or more traditionally molded units that utilize bathroom walls for support.

Hot Tubs

Hot tubs are generally large home-made or manufactured tubs full of heated water. They are typically used for soaking, relaxation or hydrotherapy. In most cases, they possess water jets that produce pulsating water movement for massage purposes.

Whirlpool Tubs

Whirlpool tubs were popularized in the 1960s and feature air bubbles that are introduced into water nozzles via an air-bleed pump.

Walk-in Tubs

Walk-in bathtubs are specially equipped bathtubs that assist those with limited mobility, such as the elderly or the disabled. Many walk-in bathtubs are equipped for hydrotherapy and/or whirlpool features.

The team at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can recommend the right solution for your bathroom based on your budget and needs.
