How To Tackle A Mobile Home Bathtub Replacement


Bathing has always been more than just personal hygiene, and the modern bathroom is never an exception. It is not just a functional space, but also a haven for retreat after one has had a rough day. It is therefore essential for one to always keep the bath in a good condition including doing some replacements whenever there is need. In the case of mobile home bathtub replacement, it would be wise for one to know how to shop for the right bathtub. Below are few tips on how to.

The first thing to do is to review the different choices in the bathtub material. For instance acrylic is lightweight and would be warmer to the touch, whereas cast iron is durable. One should also look at the shape of the tub. This is in conjunction with the bath space and how it is laid out. Odd shaped baths could benefit with the use of a corner tub, whilst the drop-in-tub could be installed below the floor level. Whatever your choice of a tub, it is also important to familiarize yourself with maintenance and care as directed by the manufacturer.

During your selection of a bathroom renovation, a possible option would be the corner bathtub. The reason behind this is the special design that gives a bath the unique and stunning look. Another major advantage is the ability to fit in all bath shapes including oddly shaped ones. Diverse finish options are variable too and cater to one’s personal reference or colour, which fits within one’s decor. The alcove bathtub is another option that can be used for a mobile home bathtub replacement. The tub is very durable and fits in a three walled enclosure, which can also be used for a shower or tub combination.

Free standing bathtubs offer good versatility during placement as installation is much simpler. This is because no special faucet drilling is needed and single drain enables the plumbing connection to become simple. It is also available in various classical styles. Platform tubs or drop-ins are tubs meant to suck in a raised platform. This makes it easy for them to fit in many bathroom styles with much ease. So after one has settled on the type of tub to use for replacement, what does the process entail? It could be a long and daunting task but with the right mindset and steps, it gets much easier. Below are brief steps on how to go about it.

The first step is to shut off all water systems to the tub and then unscrew all pipes leading to the drain and faucets. After that, the faucets should be removed for the preparation of the new tub. Next, new rim boards should be carefully installed to hold the new tub in position. The installation should be done as per the manufacturer’s instruction to avoid making any mistakes. After that, the ultimate time for bringing the tub in position is next. Before placing it in its rightful position, it is advisable to first secure a fresh drain to the bathtub. After that is done, the new tub can then be set securely and holes drilled for the placement of the shower head and the faucet.

The next step is to attach the fresh faucets to the plumbing and then an application of a suitable sealant around the bathtub should be done. It should then be given some time to cure before the area is to be made wet. After the area is dry, the new bathtub should be ready for use in the longest time possible. When all is done and solved, confirming that the new tub is perfectly levelled is important. This is to ensure that it is properly drained.

In conclusion, it is imperative for one to know that wearing and tearing of the bathtub is inevitable. This is due to its frequent use and overtime usage. One should also know that a mobile home bathtub replacement could be in one’s future but it should not be something to be distressed about. Reason being, an article like this one is meant to keep everything calm and solvable. It will also help one be prepared in case something like that ever occurs.
