Comments about Carex Universal Bath Bench w/Back, 1 ea:
The Carex Universal Bath Bench w/Back was ordered to replace an old standard type of bath bench/chair that had metal legs with holes in them. It was being used in a walk-in shower for a disabled person. The old chair was getting very raunchy (to say the least; black mold was growing inside of the legs which you could not detect until the chair itself was cleaned with a strong bleach containing cleanser and then all of this horrible black mold began falling out of the holes in sheets! *eek*).
Hence, a variety of replacements were considered until this one was discovered -- a bath bench/chair with no holes in the legs!
The Carex Universal Bath Beanch w/Back is well made and quite sturdy, two very important issues for anyone that needs to use an item like this. It has good strong grippers on the legs and was easy to assemble. The legs are adjustable for height by simply screwing them up and or down.
You must measure the distance on each leg when adjusting for height to make sure that they are all the same height to insure that you won't have an uneven chair which is both dangerous and unsafe.
So far it seems to be a great purchase and hopefully there is no way that mold can secretely grow on this Carex bath bench. There are holes on the seat of this so water can drain off of it. Hopefully, mold won't grow in the holes on the seat, but if it does happen, at least you will be able to see the mold and clean it off.
Happy customer overall and thanks for a great deal on this drugstore.com!
