Why you might want to throw away your tubs
- by admin
The answer is you probably shouldn’t, CBC News has learned.
A new study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology found that a tub’s “crack” is the area where the tub meets the edge of the casing.
The crack is not just the shape of the tub but also the shape and size of the drain.
“We found that the crack is what makes the tub crack,” said Mark Johnson, a structural engineer and author of the study.
“When a tub is too deep, the crack can cause the drain to go over the edge.
If the crack isn’t properly sealed, that can cause a leak and cause the water to spill out.”
The researchers also found that in some cases, the cracks were “too deep to be effectively sealed.”
When it comes to cracks, the researchers said, “You might not be looking for it when you have a tub that’s too deep to seal.”
The study was published online in the journal PLOS ONE.
The institute said it will continue to look for other ways to better understand tub cracking.
