Tub Size


Replacing a tub.
Old tub measures 4' 5".
New tubs appear to be 4 or 5 feet commonly.
Assuming I should get the 4', how does one account for the extra 5" with the walls?

Re: Tub Size


Mobile Home?
"Standard" is 5', 4' would be a shower.
If the old tub is 4'5" why would you replace it with a 4'?
Older mobile homes used smaller tubs.
No one here can see what your seeing so would have no clue how or where you can move the wall to fit a real standard tub.

Re: Tub Size


Ok, well me ask in a different way.

What does one do if a new bathtub matching the EXACT same size as the old one cannot be found?

Re: Tub Size


Wait...I think I know.

If I measure the current tub at 4' 5", I want to get a 4.5' tub, and the 1" difference is the wall tile. That is, my 4' 5" is actually a 4.5' tub, except that I cannot measure the extra inch because the tile is covering .5" on each end.

Am I right?

That sounds correct. 4'6" tub should be available at most plumbing supplies.
