Claw foot tub

kam76March 28, 2013

Okay I am thinking I am going to get this 5' 6" claw foot tub this weekend. List price $500

The guy said it is all original enamel and it doesn't look like it was really used in the home much so it is in great shape. I was seeing tubs in horrible shape for not much less than this and getting quotes for $300-$350 to refinish it (which I would really rather avoid as I have heard the finishes are not as durable as the original enamel) so I think this is a pretty fair price. Anything else I need to watch out for/ask about? I will make sure all the feet are the same and attached properly. I won't be using the shower part of the tub so I am not sure what holes I will need to plug to retrofit that.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Make sure the feet are of appropriate varying heights and you know which is which, or the thing won't drain.
