Acrylic Bath with Defect by Small Holes in Corner - How to Repair?


Postby 210206 » Sat Dec 19, 2015 2:07 pm

Hi,

I recently purchased 2 baths from the same supplier but both baths have had the same defect. The defect is very small holes in the corner of the bath. This leads to a small leak from the bath. After several discussions with the supplier I got some of the money back.

I have included a photo of the holes and was wondering if an acrylic bath repair kit could be used to repair the holes until such a time as I get to replace the bath

The repair kits may do the trick but it may help if you can resin from underneath the bath as well.

Omg!! Most conventional tubs will last at least 15 years. Acrylic tub surfaces are more durable than fiberglass, but fewer re finishers will work on them. Here it explains all about the quality of the material and also the responsibility of the manufacturer . Before buying such accessories better ask the advice of others preferably someone who recently bought such items.
