Lightweight (Fibreglass And Acrylic) Bathtub Or Shower Base Flexes And Cracks

Article Number

6.11

Condition

LIGHTWEIGHT (FIBREGLASS AND ACRYLIC) BATHTUB OR SHOWER BASE FLEXES AND CREAKS

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Lightweight bathtubs and showers may flex and creak when installed in accordance with Manufacturer’s specifications.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials

Action

Bathtubs or showers not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired.

Remarks

Fibreglass and acrylic bathtubs and shower enclosures are lightweight yet strong. Flexing or creaking sounds can often be heard especially in large soaker-type tubs as they are filled and emptied. These fixtures are designed to withstand this type of flexing; it does not generally represent a manufacturing or installation defect.
