In response to Re: making a steel tub less noisy
: My husband and I are gutting our bath and will install a new enamel-over-steel bathtub. It comes with a sound insulation pad, but could we add some other type of sound-proofing material (preferably found the local big-box hardware store) that would make it even less noisy? We will have very few soft surfaces in the room once we're done.

: Thanks for your insight.

I would like to encourage you to reconsider your choice of tubs. You will live with that tub for many, many years. The difference in price between a steel tub and an Americast or even cast iron is almost nothing when averaged over the life of the tub. Take a good long hard look at the work involved in replacing a tub. It only takes one dropped something to take a big chunk of enamel out of your tub, forever.
I am with hj. I never purchase them. I try to never install them.
