Some shower areas utilize a second emergency drain outside of the shower in case of overflow. In Australia and some European countries, plumbing codes require this second emergency drain (but not in the United Kingdom nor North America).
In the United States, there is a lack of a single, universal definition; this commonly results in discrepancies between advertised and actual number of baths in real estate listings. Bathrooms are generally categorized as "master bathroom", containing a shower and a bathtub that is adjoining to the largest bedroom; a "full bathroom" (or "full bath"), containing four plumbing fixtures: a toilet and sink, and either a bathtub with a shower, or a bathtub and a separate shower stall; "half (1/2) bath" (or "powder room") containing just a toilet and sink; and "3/4 bath" containing toilet, sink, and shower, although the terms vary from market to market. In some U.S. markets, a toilet, sink, and shower are considered a "full bath." In addition, there is the use of the word "bathroom" to describe a room containing a toilet and a basin, and nothing else.
In the 1960 Fiberglass bathtubs became the standard for homes, light weight and inexpensive. James R. Wheeler and his Brother Richard in 1979 adapted the acrylic being used for outdoor spas to make acrylic bathtubs, Working with Spartech Plastics they developed the modern co-extruded and durable acrylic bathtub used today. The company American Bath Factory was the first to expand the diversity of acrylic bathtubs to include whirlpools, clawfoot bathtubs, and a large variety of pedestal and modern bathtubs.
