They look really nice in the bathroom, are very convenient to use and at the same time, do not cost as much to purchase, install and maintain. But few years down the line, problems will inevitably start to show up. First of all, the fiberglass shower and tub will lose its initial shine and gleam due to usage. It will show yellow water stains and rust, and other issues with water drainage and leaking will also be apparent.
Common causes for defective fiberglass bath shower
Passage of time and usual wear and tear is always a common cause for imminent defect. But other than that, there can be other reasons why your fiberglass shower tub is causing troubles.
- Improper installation
Fiberglass is a flexible material and is malleable enough to be distorted under heavy pressure. So the shower and the tub needs very accurate measurements and installation to make sure that it does not sustain too many cracks and chips within a small period of time. You need a plumber with adequate experience and expertise for the job.
- Heavy impact
When you use a bath shower, you obviously have different bottles and containers of utility products like shampoos, soaps, conditioners and so on. If these bottles are heavy and they fall from a height, fiberglass might crack. Same applies with any metallic tools or the head of the hand shower you use. Be careful, and if you see major cracks, call the plumber.
- Hard water
Hard water leaves heavy yellow stains over and above ripping the fiberglass off its original shine.
