I bought a new Sterling Whirlpool tub. When we opened the box we saw a crack in the front inside corner so we returned it for another one. The second tub was approximately 95% installed when it cracked. I was installing the faucet and noticed a crack in the same area as the tub I returned. These tubs are obviously poor quality manufactured. There was nothing done unusual to make it crack. At this point I don't know what to do. The thought of uninstalling the tub and surround walls is mind numbing. From what I read from another report here the company will not support the product either.

#2 Consumer Comment

What is the material of that tub - fiberglass & gelcoat?

AUTHOR: Thomas - (U.S.A.)

If so, you can repair it, if you want to, but I would be tempted to return it & start over with a different tub.

Fiberglass boats need repairs from time to time- especially when they hit something. There are fiberglass AND gelcoat repair kits for boats. Gelcoat repair kits come with color additive packages for the gelcoat. Check under Marine Supplies, fiberglass repair, and Marine Supplies, gelcoat repair. The West System offers some excellent how-to-do-it repair books.

There are many people who fancy themselves competent to design & engineer with composites.... but they aren't.

If you are discussing a cast iron tub- well, too bad!
