When Should I Replace My Bathtub?

Home renovations are often fun and exciting. That is, until it comes to your bathtub. This is mostly due to the fact that many do not know exactly when it is time to replace this component of the home. The next reason is because it is a fixture that is utilized frequently.

While there is no set time when a bathtub needs replaced, there are signs that indicate it is necessary. In this guide, we will share issues with you that indicate that it may be time to complete this home improvement project. 

1. Leaks

While water is a necessary component to our day-to-day lives, it is a substance that may prove extremely detrimental to the structural integrity of your home. If any water is leaking from your bathtub – no matter how little – this is a sure sign that replacement is necessary. This is especially true if the water is pooling around the base of your bathtub. 

2. Mold and Mildew

If you notice the development of mold and mildew in or around your bathtub, it is time for a replacement. While these substances appear to be harmless, they pose an immediate health risk to you, your family members, and your pets.

Initially, you could start with a cleaner that is designed to eliminate these substances; however, if they keep reoccurring, get the bathtub out of the home and put in a new one.

Chances are, if you have a serious mold and mildew problem, it is growing on the fixture in areas that you are unable to see, too. It is better to just eliminate the problem – once and for all – with a new bathtub unit. 

3. Cracks 

It does not matter where cracks occur or how large they are, if you have these popping up in your bathtub, it is time for a new fixture. Not only do cracks make the fixture more prone to the development of mold and mildew, they also pose a danger to anyone who uses the bathtub.

This is because the jagged edges could result in injuries. If you become injured, you stand the chance for developing an infection. Many infections may prove to be life-threatening. It is just better – all the way around – to eliminate the damaged bathtub and have a new one put in its place. Sure, it is a bit of an expense, but at least you will be safe when using it.
