Recently bought a house with a crack/hole in a fibreglass bath, does anyone have experience or knowledge on whether it's fixable?

There are companies that specialise in doing repairs to fibreglass baths.

There is a company called Mend A Bath. And probably other companies that do the same. Far cheaper than getting the bath replaced.

Personally I wouldn't. It won't last. Toss it and get another bath.  I have an acrylic bath, paranoid about it cause it's also a spa bath. When painting the ceiling he wanted to get a ladder in it, with towels after I forbade it, but I forbade that too.


One crack and it's all over....




I painted that bit above the bath myself by balancing awkwardly on the edges in bare feet....
