Bathtub Surround

Recommended Posts

I've got to replace a bathtub surround. I've been looking at them and they cost anywhere from $35 to $1000. What do I really need and what don't I want? All input appreciated. The wife says I can't go fishing again until I get this job done.

I would definately get a one piece so you don't have to mess with caulking all the seams. If you are going to replace your tub also you might want to get one that has the tub and surround all in one piece, then you won't have to take anymore time off from fishing to mess with re doing anything.

Yeah I have put in a few of the 3 piece ones, and they look fine and if you glue them properly they should never come close to falling off! And it isn't much caulking at all just the corners and the top, plus the way i figure you can save 100's by taking an extra 10 minutes and using a little caulk.

    • Do you have a code reader?  Try erasing it and see if it goes away?  The best investment I made was buying a cheap code reader for like $59 at Fleet Farm. I have cleared codes on 3 different vehicles over the years that I never had to bring into a shop for.  Most of them are just hiccups like misfires, once cleared they go away.   Most car dealers will charge around $80-90 to do a "Diagnostic".  I've paid for the thing 10 times over already.   
    • I'm getting a P0123 error code.  Comes up with Throttle Position Circuit High Input and Throttle Sensor Out of Range came up.  Any idea what all possibilities come with this?
