My wife had me look at the bath tub in the main bath room and there is some fractures along 1 side. I worked in a boat factory years ago and these type a fractures could be ground out and redone with new I think it was called free coat. Is this possible on a tub? This is a one piece tub so I donít want to tare it out if I can help it.
A boat has structure though, a bathtub generally doesn't. A steel bathtub generally relies on the strength of the tub itself to contain water. If there's a fracture, the only way you can repair it is by welding it, and you have no access to the underside. A full 50 gallon tub could be holding 400 lbs of water not including the person. It's risky to do anything with this tub.
