My wife is at it again and has decided that she does not like the green appliances in the main bathroom. This after 30 years. Now she wants white.
I have no issues doing it myself, toilet, washbasin, wash counter, and plumbing, however I have some trepidation about replacing the tub. Never did one of them before. I understand how to remove it, (I think) but for the installation of the new one there are some questions.
The old tub is the standard 30 inch wide and 60 long, 15 inch high. ..it is 40 years old but in good shape. (just the color is now wrong
) She wants it replaced with a white one, same size, but rather than 15 in height, with 18 in high. I checked at the big box stores, and she found what she wants. My question is : are the over flow hole and drain hold standard? In other words, would the new tub be able to use the existing overflow and drain pipe? I just want to check this before I go looking and some 16 year old at the store tells me everything will be cool.
One other question...what would be better to replace it with porcelain on steel, or acrylic?
Thanks for your help. Any other tips are welcome.
