Ⅱ. How to choose the bathtub that suits you?

1. Choose the bathtub according to the material

Common bathtub materials on the market include cast iron bathtubs, enamel bathtubs, wooden bathtubs, acrylic bathtubs, etc. However, due to issues such as material, transportation, appearance design, and service life, at present, the most mainstream on the market is acrylic bathtubs.

2. Choose the bathtub according to the function

According to the functional characteristics of bathtubs, it can be divided into bathtubs, bathtubs with accessories, and massage bathtubs. These bathtubs have their own characteristics in shape and design, but the biggest advantage is their function.

When we choose, we need to decide according to personal preferences and family needs, so that we can choose the most suitable bathtub.

The size of the bathtub is not only related to the size of the space, but also directly related to the functional design of the bathtub. The length of the general bathtub varies from 1.2 meters to 1.7 meters, and the depth is between 50 and 70 cm. 

A bathtub with a length of less than 1.5 meters is often deeper than a general bathtub, about 70 cm. This is often referred to as a sitz bathtub. Due to the small area of the bottom of the bathtub, this bathtub is easier to stand than a general bathtub, saving space and not affecting the use of comfort.

The minimum size of ordinary fan-shaped bathtubs can reach a diameter of 1.2 meters, and some fan-shaped bathtubs are more than 1.7 meters in size. Fan-shaped bathtubs of this size are only suitable for a Spacious bathroom.

The circular bathtub is generally larger, with a diameter of 1.5 to 1.8 meters. The circular bathtub consumes a lot of water and occupies a large area. Most of them are used in villas. 

Triangular bathtubs are generally used less, and there are some irregularly shaped bathtubs, which are used in large bathrooms and are rarely used in households.

D. Wooden bathtub:

The length of the wooden bathtub basically ranges from 900mm to 1500mm, and the most purchased ones are 1200mm-1300mm. This is mainly based on the height of the consumer and the space size of the bathroom.

Ⅲ. How to maintain a bathtub?

1. Repair scars in time

Avoid hitting and hitting the surface with hard objects, causing bumps or scratches. To repair dull or scratched acrylic tubs, wipe vigorously with a clean rag mixed with a colorless automatic sanding solution, then apply a layer of colorless protective wax. Do not wax the area where your feet are to prevent slipping.

2. Gently treat surface stains

The surface can be scrubbed with a discarded soft-bristled toothbrush dipped in bleach water to remove both stains and mold. If you encounter difficult-to-rub stains, you can also use half a lemon dipped in salt to wipe, or you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush to scrub with whitening toothpaste. Turpentine is also very useful at this time. 

For limescale, the products you use to clean your toilet on weekdays work well, or white vinegar if you don’t like the pungent smell. Do not use detergents with a fading function, especially if the bathtub is colored at home. To combat mold and fungal disease-causing bacteria, rinse with bleach and peroxygen and dry immediately.

3. Handle pipe blockages at any time

Ducts should be cleaned once or twice a week to remove odors and prevent bacterial growth. You can use a product specially designed to clean the sewer, pour it into the sewer, and clean it after 5 minutes. Be careful not to use it in metal pipes. 

If the bathtub is clogged, you can first close the drain valve, and then put an appropriate amount of tap water in the bathtub; place a rubber suction device (for unclogging the toilet) on the drain valve. 

While opening the drain valve, suffocate the basin or The overflow hole of the bathtub; then quickly suck up and down to suck out the dirt or hair and clean it up in time. In the case of serious blockage, you can repeat it several times until it is clear.

4. Weekly cleanup

When cleaning the acrylic bathtub, use a sponge or flannel, do not use a coarse cloth, or scouring pad, and do not use any cleaning agent containing granular objects, it is best to avoid direct sunlight and contact with high-temperature cigarette butts. 

Use mild cleaning agents (such as dish soap), do not use abrasive cleaners. Acrylic bathtubs can also be cleaned with glass water. After use, rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry with a soft cloth. 

If you encounter stubborn stains, you can use a small amount of abrasive cleaner to clean them. Clean the bottom non-slip surface with a soft nylon brush. Do not scrub with steel balls, wire brushes or abrasive sponges.

5. Common faults of bathtub

(1) The bathtub cannot enter the water

(2) The bathtub is leaking

(3) The bathtub is not energized or the leakage protection switch is tripped

(4) The size of the bathtub massage water cannot be adjusted

(5) The bathtub control panel cannot be activated

There is a one-to-one correspondence between the maintenance method and the failure of the bathtub. The bathtub does not enter the water generally because the faucet is blocked by a foreign body, so the maintenance method is to clean up the foreign body. 

The repair method for bathtub leakage is to check whether the faucet valve core and sealing ring are damaged, and then replace it. If the massage bathtub is not electrified, it is generally due to the poor contact of the power cord or the leakage of the power circuit, which can be repaired accordingly.
