I posted this question in the plumbing forum as well, but thought I'd try it here too.
We're looking to remodel our old condo bathroom, and we've narrowed our bathtub choices down to a Sterling Performa tub (made of Vikrell) and a Briggs Liberty tub (made of something called UltraCAST.)
I've seen plenty of posts here about the Vikrell tubs, but haven't seen anything on UltraCAST. The company's website makes it sound similar to the Americast tubs made by American Standard.
The tub will get plenty of use—at least 2-3 showers a day and 4-5 baths a week—so we want something that will hold up to a family of four. And we can't use cast iron because we live in a fourth-floor walk-up with crazy tight stairs.
So I'm wondering if any of you have used an UltraCAST tub and what you think about it.
