Bathing beauty
Monday, 26 April 2021  | 

I bought an acrylic bath, and was shocked at how flimsy the sides felt. With it standing on end, and against the sunlight from the window, light could be seen through it in several places, including around the plughole. Since a reviewer on the Wickes site complained about their bath splitting, I decided it would be a good idea to get a fibreglass kit and beef it up a bit.
I bought the kit from MB 6 months ago, but I have only just 'got round to doing it'. I was shocked when I read the specs, because I didn't realise that it has such a short shelf life. However, it mixed up well and went on a treat, with more than enough working time. As well as the substantial FG sheet supplied, I used some FG jointing tape. It looks brilliant - better than the original dull beige colour. Pity that the bath panel will obscure it from admiring eyes. And all for ten quid. (Yes, I did take the bath back out before I did it . . . )
