They are connected with a hot and cold supply and waste connections, the same as plunge baths.

Fain baths are a kind of shower bath, especially adapted for bathing establishments, and have the advantage over plunge baths for such places, in that they occupy but little floor area, and that they are thoroughly hygienic, as the same water never comes in contact with the body twice.

In all spray, needle, shower, bidet, and rain baths, and shampoos, a mixing chamber should be used. Such a chamber is shown in Fig. 3; cold water, entering through (a), and hot water, through (b), are admitted to the chamber (c) in small jets and thoroughly mixed before passing into the discharge pipe (d), the top of which discharges through the shower, or the shampoo attachment as desired. A thermometer (e) has its bulb extending into a circuit of mixing water, to indicate the temperature of the mixture. The difference between shower and rain baths is that a shower falls in large drops at low velocity, and the rain comes in minute jets at high velocity.

Sunken baths are simply large pools sunk below the floor level; they are made of wood, brick, or terra cotta, and are lined with sheet lead or copper, or faced inside with enameled tile. The dimensions and capacity depend upon the size of the room. The depth varies from 2 to 4 ft. Water is usually provided at the end, from a point above the floor level, as from a nozzle attached against the wall. Waste and overflow connections are provided, similar to ordinary baths.
