In response to Re: Inexpensive Bathtubs
: I'm re-modeling both my bathrooms and I'm not looking to spend a lot of cash. I'm going to get something from Lowes or Home Depot, or what the plumbers who re-piped my house sell, as they are going to install the tub/toilet.

: AquaGlass
: American Standard Princeton (americast)
: Lasco - fiberglass model
: Sterling by Kohler - Vikrell model
: Crane Aztec - porcelan on steel
: Bootz - procelan on steel
: Briggs - porcelan on steel (what my plumber is offering)

: I'm looking for something that doesn't need a mortar bed since my quote is based on that, as the plumbers recommended Briggs model doesn't require this. The plumbers want $250 for their tub. The other tubns are $88-120, except for the American Standard which is $210.

: Some searching has lend me to most people opting for the procelan covered steel out of this choices. Some say the Americast does NOT hold up well. The Vikrell I can't find anything on.

: I'm looking for something that looks nice and will hold up. Cleaning wise we usually use scrubbing bubbles, but if a fiberglass or acrylic tub can't use this, we'll switch. We will use this tub once or twice a month MAX as a tub, and even less for showering in.

: Can someone guide me in the right tub direction?
