3 popular questions answered by our bath doctor

Another week, another brand new set of questions! This week my questions are based on repairing different size chips, scratches, cracks and surfaces. By answering these questions clearly and effectively customers then felt confident to carry out their own repair on their damaged bath and shower tray.

  1. What is the biggest size damage the putty kit will repair?
    A few days ago I received a phone call from a customer asking if our putty kit will fill and repair a 500mm (length) x 15mm (width) x 3mm (depth) crack that was leaking. I politely quoted to the customer that our kit is perhaps for smaller damages but he purchased one anyway as he understood our kit is much cheaper than buying a new bath, installation costs and tiling. Well, this customer contacted us a few days later and said that the repair was a success! Therefore, the good news is, we now suggest that this is the largest damage our repair kit can repair.
  2. How many chips will our repair kit fill?
    There is enough product to repair approximately 10-12 chips the size of a flat 5 pence piece with a depth of approximately 2 flat 5 pence pieces (i.e. 3-4mm). The adhesive once applied to the damaged area will shrink in volume by 20% as it hardens so cavities must be over-filled to allow for this.
  3. What types of surface can I use the repair kit on?
    Our bathtub repair kit has been developed especially for repairing chips, scratches, cracks, splits and holes on acrylic, fibreglass, stone resin, enamel, porcelain, ceramic surfaces and all other sanitary ware. Therefore, we can offer a repair solution for every surface used with sanitary wear.

And there’s another week of frequently asked questions completed for you. Hopefully these answers will have been of significant help to you. However, if you have any other queries to ask feel free to go to our live chat at the bottom of the page.
