Transcript Mott Modern Plumbing built-in baths WHEN a bath is built into tiled walls and floor it becomes an integral part of the room, affording the obvious advantages of a perfect shower receptor, greater cleanliness and comfort that have made it the most popular type of bath. The solid porcelain bath glazed inside and outside is, in our opinion, the only kind for this purpose. Built-in baths of solid porcelain are the most sanitary, durable and serviceable. The hard glazed surface fused integral with the clay body is permanent and will not scratch or discolor; unlike enameled iron, dirt or grease will not hold to its surface. When the solid porcelain bath is installed it is completely embedded in the cement, as Plate 2728-A, leaving no open spaces around the bath. The enameled iron built-in bath, see Plate 2729-A, has an open space between the body of the bath and the skirt or apron. This space extends all around as well as under the bath and in time becomes more or less foul, due to dampness, vermin and because the space is unventil- ated. On this score alone the solid porcelain bath is infinitely more sanitary than the enameled iron. As manufacturers, we are interested in both solid porcelain and enameled iron, and our desire is to point out what we consider the proper bath to use for building into the tiled walls, and which we know will give the most satisfactory results in every way.
