That Ceiling Fan is about 3 1/2 ft above the Tub

The owner used to sit in the tub and pull the chains.

(This was inherited from a previous owner).

Personally, I've never met a (paddle) fan that I've liked. To me, the appropriate location for any of these fans is the nearest landfill.
Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

That fan was low enough that the average person would hit their head on it if they stood up in the tub. The owner has agreed that is best to get rid of it, just never really thought about it being a hazard.
