Bathroom Spruce-up.


Tile are good in bathroom, tub is bad condition, finish wearing off. I don't think my tub drains properly, as when I shower I end up standing in 5 inches of water. I keep a plastic strainer in drain to catch hair. That slows down the drain some what, but my brother , who is not a plumber thinks it is not getting enough air. Do you think that is possible, and what does one do about that? How difficult is it to not do damage to the tile getting a new tub in and out? Also price wise Where do I stand?

This poor draining has NOTHING whatsoever to do with the cosmetic appearance of the tub. If it used to drain... then the remedy is often based in something very simple like poor housekeeping that has 10 years worth of hair and soap sum accumulating in the pipes.

Impossible to replace the tub without damaging the tile.
Fix (clean) the drain pipes...
and then/maybe consider a re-porcelain job on the tub itself.
