In response to Re: hair line cracks in new tub

Actually, I purchased everything from the same business. Tub, Swanstone around the tub, cabinets,
sink, toilet, flooring, etc. The people who installed everything worked for this business. They subcontracted the plastering, and electrical.
I realize the tub is warranted. BUT it is covered only as a repair or replace at the option of the manufacturer. Even if I wanted it replaced, how can I afford to replace it? The warranty says it will not pay for tearing out the old tub, nor installing the new tub. Considering I have spent about $9,000. on this remodel, I am hearsick
at the obvious defect in the new tub.
I am sure the option of repairing the tub would mean reglazing, which would not have the life expectancy of a new tub .
Has anyone ever heard of the bubble popping theory?
Is there a glazing process that will last the life of the tub, if they will only repair it?
