This is for anyone interested in IdealCast. I like them, but it's been a hassle.
I bought one last year. During the fitting (I wasn't home) the plumber somehow
knocked it over & it literally smashed in half. Not too surprising as I've a
concrete floor. The plumber bought a replacement, and at the time the tiling was
getting done, the tiler noticed a long hairline crack in the new bath. I'd had
this bath sitting around a while, so couldn't say where this happened, so bought
a third bath out of my own pocket. I knew I was taking a risk - to have 3 baths
go wrong on you would be a nightmare, but the fact I persisted shows that I
really liked this bath. When the 3rd one arrived, I checked it over carefully,
then did the installation myself. This bath has been fine, and I'm very happy
with it. It's very heavy, and you don't feel it moving at all. I dropped a
couple of tiles on it whilst doing some retiling, and caused some scratches to
the edge, but think maybe I can sand these out - I've got bits of one of the old
bath to practice on. So... a quality bath, just BE CAREFUL with it!
