Re: Advise on buying new tub?
Yes, they are made the same way as olden days, but likely with time and financial scrutiny, not as good as your grandfather's tub. That is not to say that today's enameled tubs are bad, only that maybe the cast iron or steel isn't quite as thick, and the enamel isn't quite as thick, which makes it a little more susceptible to thermal dynamics. Still, enamel is a far more durable surface than acrylic or fiberglass gel coat.
