Simon Asked :I have a rented property that needs the bath replacing, could you help me if I would be making the right choice ? as some say that a steel cracks and chips easily.
Answered By Kenneth :
Steel baths do not crack or chip in my experience, I have fitted MANY bathrooms in my time and would not fit "plastic". But they have to be fitted correctly and like any bath have to be supported. I am a retired builder.
Answered By claire :
Hi! I have renovated a number of properties and have always used pressed steel baths in preference to the "plastic" types. They are sturdier and hold temperatures well. Personally I have never experienced any chips or cracks - and actually believe plastic baths crack far easier! For the price this bath represents excellent value. I bought this actual one for my own property. I am currently undertaking a conversion of a commercial building to two residential flats and will be using this product again for the bathrooms.
Answered By Michael :
Treated carelessly anything can be damaged, these are no different but I wouldnt say that they chip easily. I have accidentally dropped things into mine on many occasions with no signs of damage. Acrylic on the other hand are very easily damaged. I replaced the acrylic bath because it was leaking due to damage caused by dropping something into it. Good quality steel baths like these are the way to go just avoid cheap this one.
Answered By Hardeep :
The enamel on the steel can chip if you drop something heavy on it, but it takes some doing. The plastic baths scratch almost instantly and look terrible after even a short space of time
Answered By Mohammed :
These are much stronger. Steel does not crack and does not chip the bath comes with a 20 yr guarantee. I would recommend you to buy this bath but make sure you order the side handles also
Answered By Robert :
We use these baths a lot in refurbishments and in fact I have had one in my own house for the last 10 years. They are very hard wearing and have not heard of any chipping easily and certainly not as easily as an acrylic. Good luck Robert
Answered By Naomi :
I have only had this for one year, but so far I am very happy with it. I bought a much more expensive one for my previous flat, which did chip within a few months. If I had any criticism, it would not be about the finish, but rather that (as it seems to me, an amateur!) the metal itself is not as thick as some more expensive models.
