    I am remodeling my kids bathroom and the tub is fiberglass and gross. I want to replace it but can not find the right size. It is 28" x 57" and 15" high. I do not want fiberglass again but prefer acrylic. Does anyone know where I can find one? It is surrounded by three walls and needs a right drain.

    A tub size is measured between the bare walls (behind any finish - the studs). You sure it is 57"?

    Three inches total equals 60" which is a standard size tub.
