Safer Showering with the KTWSG5U WaterStopper Collapsible Dam

Safer Showering with the WaterStopper

Safer Showering with the WaterStopperHere at ORCA HealthCare, your safety is our priority. All our showers are designed to ensure excellent water drainage, but for maximum efficiency we recommend installing a WaterStopper to keep water in the shower and your bathroom floor dry.

The WaterStopper was created to prevent splashes and spills while ensuring our accessible showers remain just that—accessible to all users. This effective water retention system features a clever rubber dam that is fully collapsible. The rubber flexes when stepped on or when rolled over by a wheelchair, then springs back into an upright position to stop water escaping from the shower.

Each WaterStopper is supplied with 2 sets of end caps to ensure a perfect fit for your shower and help secure the dam in place while sealing the corners. When paired with a weighted shower curtain, the WaterStopper creates a complete water containment system, allowing you to shower in comfort and safety.

Keeping the bathroom floor dry reduces the risk of slipping in pools of water after exiting the shower. Another benefit of keeping the bathroom floor dry is that it reduces the need for wiping up spills after every shower and prevents mold and damage caused by standing water. The WaterStopper is suitable for all users, whether on foot, using a mobility aid such as a walker or in a wheelchair.

The WaterStopper is suitable for private homes and commercial or healthcare facilities alike and requires only minimal do-it-yourself skills to fit.
