|In response to Re: TUBS: Cast Iron vs. Acrylic|
They are plastic so they can be fairly easily scratched. In addition if you use harsh scouring powders or pads, the gloss coat can be damaged and from that point on, the tub will always look dirty.
: Thanks! But can you tell me if they easily scratch? What about Ultra brand or is there another that is a top acrylic tub maker? Kohler?
: : : Help! I can't make a decision and could use some advice. I'm remodeling 2 full baths and need to order all new fixtures. I have cast iron tubs now and will be removing these (too shallow). I've always equated cast iron with high quality however my plumbing supplier suggested a heavy acrylic instead. She suggested the Ultra bath tubs. Ultra makes thermo-masseur baths using air jets. I would order the normal non-jet tubs instead, which they also make.
: : : Anyway, I like quality stuff but at good value, and plan to install tumbled marble, frameless shower doors, Toto toilets etc. Should I go with cast iron or acrylic tubs? I should mention that I have 2 little kids. I'm thinking acrylic definitely for their bathroom. Is Ultra a good brand or is there another?
