Question about Home
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.

Your question is: You have a claw foot bath to install in a tiled bathroom. How do you fix the bath to the floor so it is secure and doesn't move?
A little clear silicone caulk under each claw is my favorite method. Locate the tub in it"s final position. Set up the drain and water connections so that you can complete them without moving the tub. Lift each end in turn just a bit and aply some caulk, you may need a helper. Wipe off the excess. Then hook up.

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

The porcelain is easier to clean,and wont rust,but it can also be chipped off if dropped.Its really a personal choice after that.there is nothing wrong with the plain old cast iron ones.

If the water is entering through the overflow on the twist mech. then the gasket should be tightened and or adjusted. If possible feel around on the top of that fitting from the back side to rule out water leaking from other source, such as backsplash or faucet from escutcheons. It sounds like you have a pretty good idea of how to fix it. I hope this helps.

when cast iron woks are seasons properly, they help create the special 'wok style' flavor. They also have good heat retention and cook the food evenly.
