In response to Re: acrylic vs. cultured marble
: I am remodeling an upstairs master bath w/42 x 72 tub, w or w/o whirlpool haven't decided. Am also adding large shower. My concern is to use acrylic tub/shower pan w/tile surrounds or full cultured marble for all. Will cultured marble last as long as acrylic? Do they both hold heat equally well in large tubs? Also, I have a large spa downstairs and would like to jet master tub as well but am concerned by leak potential of both cultured marble and acrylic jetted tubs over 15-20 year period. what are track records of jetted tub installations? Thanks in advance?

i would recomend an acrylic tub with hard pipes the reason is acrylic as easier to clean plus with it being hard piped it will not allow water to seat in the pipes when not in use it will dran and prevent stegnet water for the walls i would aslo recomend acrylic so it will color match ands it also will hold a longer shine as long as you use the proper cleaner i hope this helps you out have a great day
