Consumers will consider five factors when choosing bathtubs. They are style, material, size, shape and glossiness of bathtubs.
Style and material
There are several kinds of bathtub materials. They are acrylic, steel plate, cast iron and ceramics. Among them, cast iron has the highest grade. Acrylic and steel plate are second. Ceramics were the absolute mainstream materials for bathtubs in the past. Bathtubs made of ceramic materials no longer occupy the mainstream. The quality of bathtub material depends on brightness and cleanness of the surface. The smoothness is another important factor. For steel plates and cast iron bathtubs, bad enamel plating will lead to ripples on the surface. The quality and thickness of the materials affect the firmness of the bathtub. Consumers should press with their hands and step on them with their feet. If they feel sunken, the hardness and rigidity are not enough. It is proper to obtain the consent of the merchant before stepping on it.
Size and shape
The size of the bathtub should fit the actual bathroom size of the consumer. The triangular bathtub takes up more space than the rectangular bathtub. The depth, width, length and contour of bathtubs of the same size are different. The position of the waste outlet will be higher for deep water. For bathtubs with skirt edges on one side, the direction of skirt edges is important. You should choose it according to the position of water outlet and wall surface. If you buy the wrong bathtub, you cannot install it. If you want to add a shower nozzle on the bathtub, the bathtub should be wider. The bathtub part under the shower should be flat and anti-skid.
You can judge the materials by looking at the surface glossiness. This method is suitable for any kind of bathtub. Hand pressing and foot stepping can test the firmness of the bathtub. The firmness of the bathtub is related to the quality and thickness of the material. You need to test it by yourself. You can stand in it to feel whether it is sunken. If so, then the material is thinner.
You can touch the surface to feel smoothness. This method can be applied to steel plate and cast iron bathtubs. They need enamel plating. Ripples will appear if the plating process is not good. You can listen to the sound to identify the quality of the bathtub. You should buy a high-grade bathtub. It is best to "filling the water" and listen to the sound when buying. If the motor noise of the massage bathtub is loud, it will become a burden.
After-sales service is an important factor that consumers should consider. On-site measurement and installation services are necessary.
