Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Bathtub
Replacing your bathtub might feel like a luxury, but sometimes it’s actually more of a necessity. If you notice any of the following signs when looking at your current tub, it’s time to think about replacing it.
It’s cracked: Cracks not only make your tub look dated but they can also lead to leaks. And, in the worst cases, you can cut yourself on jagged cracks when using your tub.
It’s stained: A stained bathtub can put a damper on your mood when you’re trying to relax. When the stains won’t come out even after a deep clean, consider replacing your tub with a new, easy-to-clean model.
It’s leaking: When your bathtub is leaking, your home is at risk of serious structural damage. If you’re not sure whether your tub is leaking, fill it up, make a note of the water level, and check back on it in an hour to see if the water level is lower. If so, you likely have a leak.
