redoing bathroom

Hi All,
I need some help, I'm remodeling my bathroom and I'm not sure which product is good for my tub, sink and toilet.
I was told americast is ideal, but i would appreciate some input.

Thanks for any info.

I try not to put down products or manufacturers but Americast has had some bad reviews on the product. Seems the finish isn't what buyers expected. You may want to do some checking around on this.


If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.

I love cast iron tubs.

China sinks and potties. Don't ever buy a plastic potty.

Got to agree on the cast iron tubs. I recently put in an acrylic look-alike which really does look alike. Except you can carry the thing in there by yourself.

I don't understand your asking which ones to buy? Cast iron bathtub is the best if you don't have to carry it up stairs. If so you might want to go with a tub you build a frame and slap it in. Like bonus is talking about. Toliet Toto with gmax. Sink What ever you can afford your options there are wide open.

Tub, I agree that cast iron is "best", but for me, I preferred to go the fiberglass route for ease and price. Price is astounding, I paid $220 for my fiberglass tub/shower combo and I love it. But again, all of this stuff is very much personal preference. Toilets, I like my water saving toilet very much!
