Take digital photos and start the warranty process, it sounds like a poor enameling job.

I would like information on steps to remove bathtub and install pre fab shower


This is a fairly big job but can be done if you have the right tools and a little bit of time....... Depending on the existing tub material (cast iron,fiberglass, tin type ). You will want to remove faucet trim(handles,spout) first. Then the over flow plate on tub,as well as drain in the bottom (this will require a drain removal wrench or pair of needle nose pliers and screw driver, and some strong arms).After this is done remove tub unit , if the unit is a cast iron unit a good sledge hammer will work as you will need to break into halves to remove unless your trying to save tub and provided you can then get the unit out the door in one piece...... Caution, protect body and eyes in this process, flying pieces of cast iron can do some damage to body......cutting tub will take several blades and take quite a while to do......The next step depends on the location of faucet and if you are replacing the tub faucet or going to use the existing faucet.... I would recommend a new faucet because if this is going to be a shower only you may want to raise the faucets so they will be easy to operate without having to bend..Depending on the model pre-fab (two piece,three piece) unit you wish to install you may need to prep the drain to make sure it will fit your new installation. Let me explain... most tubs have the drain located at the right/left end of tub and the showers are located in the center of the unit thus leaving you to relocate the drain. If house is on slab it means a little jack hammering the concrete to provide this, if the floor is a conventional it means re-routing the drain to the center.......once all this is accomplished you are ready to install unit base,connecting drain. Next you need to get the faucet located to the right height or be able to get to the back side of the shower and remove the existing faucets and replace them after you install surround.....turn off water supply before removing faucet..... A sturdy surround will make for a less involved support system around shower area.Be sure to leave enough space between studs for faucet attachment. Sounds like a lot of work and it is but after its done you will have a great bath shower..... hope this was helpful.... sorry this only dealt with the plumbing aspects of the job......

I have an old cast iron, enamel coated tub. It has a tub stopper that you turn a lever to make the stopper go up and down. Problem is that in order for my shower to drain and not become a bath I had to...


I would consider replacing the trip waste with a newer still. That still has a lot more linkage then the newer one and that's way no one uses then anymore I not sure you can buy them now.
The main reason why I say replace it now is the linkage tends to collect a lot more debis such as long hire it will stop up continually.

How can i find the main water turn off; the cold water tap, for the bath, needs a new washer


if it is not in,under or right outside your house you can always shut it off at the water meter,usually located on the property line under a metal cover. use a crescent wrench or channel lock pliers. if more than one family is on this one meter, notify everyone involved about your repair problem and co-ordinate a time to turn off the water that is convenient for everyone.

Fitting stand alone bath taps


These are normally connected with a chrome waist & overflow assembly that passes down into the floor where it connects into the plastic piping with the use of an 1.5" trap adapter.

All that can be seen on the finished product is the chrome parts.

This is something best handled by a tub resurfacer. It is an area of specialized repair. Results varied depending on material tub is made of. Cast iron tubs Show repair more so than fiberglass. Check for tub resurfacing in Repair Service Link.

Difference between acrylic and fiberglass


Acrylic is a solid sheet material that is heated and vacuum formed to the desired shape. It is then reinforced at the back with fiberglass to give it strength. It is a higher-end material, very durable and super easy to clean. Fiberglass is a material that adheres to a mold and then a gelcoat finish is sprayed onto it. The most common material used in tubs and showers and is the most economical. Cast iron tubs are forged and the finish is applied in powder form while the tub is hot causing the finish to melt onto the cast iron. Synthetic tubs are molded and then a gelcoat finish is applied like the fiberglass tubs.
