A shower drain cover is utilized as a barrier between you and the drain hole and can also help to protect the shower drain from becoming clogged with hair or debris which can cause water to not drain properly. Shower drains are fixed in the open position and are used in showers that do not have a bathtub.
A bathtub drain has the ability to open and close so that the tub can fill up with water. Combination shower bathtubs traditionally have a classic bathtub drain so you can switch between taking a bath or shower.
A bath plug or a bathtub stopper can be used to stop water from draining, but is usually attached with a chain to the tub spot and can be pulled out completely when you’re ready to drain the tub. It is then re-inserted into the tub drain when it’s bathtime again. Another alternative is a separate drain control switch which is often near the tubs overflow. that opens and closes the floor drain by pulling up or down on the handle.
