    Very pleased with the results on our acrylic bath with easy to use instructions provided. Could do with supplying larger bags for baths with mixer taps.
    Otherwise, a really good product I would recommend.
    Thanks Tubby!

    We have just completed the resurfacing of our old bath and it looks lovely. One slight gripe was there was no mask, which was supposed to be included in the pack, which meant we had to take a trip out to buy one.
    One other thing which I feel could be improved was the three sets of instructions which are included, which meant we had to keep referring to different sheets of paper; maybe these could be amalgamated into one which would make life easier.
    But that said, the product seems to have worked well and the old bath is looking great after it’s makeover.

    Hi Grant

    Love this product – really does what it says. The pack and instructions are perfect and really clear and easy to use. Our bath looks fabulous and I would highly recommend this product.

    Thank you

    What a brilliant product. We really wanted to refit our bathroom but found it cost too much, and the bath was the worst part of it. So I searched online and found this product.

    It took one day to complete it from start to finish and then the waiting time for it to dry. It was easy to do and everything you need is in the kit which is so handy. The only thing that was disappointing, was that the sponge on the rollers started to come apart towards the end of each layer. This might have been my fault, rather than the sponge itself but it does mean that there are a couple of places on the bath that have little bobbly sponge bits under the coating. Nothing major, but be aware if you’re planning on resurfacing your bath…it might mean rolling very lightly…maybe I was a little hard on it.

    Overall, the bath looks fantastic, as good as new and has saved us so much money.

    This product is fantastic. I used it to change my old beige kitchen sink to a brand new white one. It arrived very quickly, well packaged with easy to follow instructions. This has saved me a lot of money and hassle by not having to buy a new sink.

    Very, very good. As the frank Spencer of DIY I can testify this was easy to use. The results (apart from a hardly noticeable stippling from using the roller) are a 100% improvement on the poor rough surface there before. Can’t recommend the product enough.

    Good morning.

    The order arrived yesterday; thank you.

    I will not be using the product until the weekend, but wanted to remark on your amazing service.
    From the initial placing of the order to the delivery, everything was superb.
    If the product is as good as your service I will be delighted.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for this product. It was much easier than I had thought although I agree with one review it would be helpful if it goes on as a different colour but dries in white as it was stipulated in the instructions strongly not to go over the same place twice which was quite difficult to judge.

    Apart from that I loved the product and was very pleased that everything that needed, even paint stirrer and green scourer were included in the package and plastic bags to cover the taps and shower what a genius idea and I am very pleased with the result.

    Thank you very much

    I followed the instructions to the letter but I now have a bath with a stipled “orange peel” effect all over it! I dont know what has gone wrong to give this marking on the whole surface. I have spoken to the Tubby help desk and to be fair they answered and gave me some help – I now have to rub down the whole bath and then polish.

    Great product, simple to use, great finish. We painted the outside of a role top bath from start to finish in 3 hours. Great instructions. Everything we needed in the box, meant we saved in the long run not having to trail around DIY stores.

    Was really not looking forward to doing the job and was quite sceptical about what the finish was going to be like. But once I’d got stuck into the job, I found myself enjoying the task. Had to get a wriggle on putting the second coat on as it seemed to be going sticky very quickly and another 50ml of paint might have made life easier too as it did seem like I was going to run out.
    But the finish is very good, and of course the boss (wife) is pleased.

    Nice one, thank you.

    Very good product, bought it to do a motor home shower tray and wall panels, looked that good had to do the sink as well, worth buying extra because if you just do one item it will put the other items to shame.

    I have successfully painted my bath. It looks like new and I’m very pleased.

    Tubby uk was very helpful and delivery as expected. The preparation was the most work. The painting was easy with everything provided in the kit.

    Thank you.

    This is the 3rd time that I have used Tubby. It is the best product available and so easy to apply and gives a great finish at the end. These have all been for clients of mine and all of them are overjoyed at the result. The last time I used it just last week was on a font in a Roman Catholic Church. The Father is overjoyed!!

    Delivery was very quick, and the product instructions was easy to understand and even better results.
    I’ve never used anything like this, so I was unsure about if I should actually try it or not.

    As a result, I did try, and the ease of application and excellent finish is amazing. For me I was trying to match an old suite( Indian Ivory) by painting a white bath panel to match the suite.

    Needed to do this because panels in I.I. are rare, and now the colour is a perfect match.

    Hi Grant – just a note to say the job is complete and the results are super. My wife – who has hated the pink suite for years – now has a happy face.

    For the record may I say you score in all of the following areas.

    Great Product including all necessary items.
    Good pricing.
    Clear, accurate and easy to follow instructions.
    Excellent back up service and communication.
    Excellent finish.

    You may quote me if you wish.

    Many thanks.

    I only got round to doing the bath a few months ago but I love it!!!! I dedicated a whole day so I could make sure I followed all the steps and could be thorough and I must admit it was about 5 hours but I did have a break in between coats. The finish is a bit dimpled but I am still very pleased, in face I actually like the texture.

    We are very happy with the product, and we were surprised how well it worked, and how easy it was to use. Thanks to you our bath now looks like new! It covered a chip on the bath enamel excellently as well.

    I have now complete doing the bath.

    The product work very well, the finish is very good ,better than i was expecting. The instruction were very clear and i am glad i watch the video as it showed how it should be done Your product arrive on time and i had no problems.

    The only thing i would say that would help with the product is if the first coat dried to a slightly darker colour as my colour was white and it made the second coat a bit hard to see when you are trying not to miss any bits.

    Bath treatment was successful thank you, although I didn’t make quite as good a job as when I last did the bath, an old Victorian roll top, 15 years ago. Still, apart from a pimply bit, just where you sit, it looks like anew bath.

    Will order again in another 15 years!

    Hello there,

    Bath review.

    Yes, I finally got round to doing the deed and I am really pleased with the results. There was a problem with the courier which delayed everything by a month and by then I had guests (B&B in Italy) so it had to wait until now.

    Grant at your end was very helpful with this unusual request to send the kit to Italy and chased the courier for me.

    The kit was everything it claimed to be and good value as my quote locally for the same job was 480 euros!!!

    Instructions and u tube video all fine and all quite easy.

    Thanks again.

Step 2 – Sand

To ensure the resurfacing material has a good “key” give the entire bath a once over over with the sandpaper provided.



Step 3 – Mask

Now, to make sure you get a clean tidy finish round the edges and the fittings, use the masking tape provided to cover any bits that don’t need resurfacing.



Step 4 – Brush

Use the brush to paint round the edges and the fittings



Step 5 – Roll

Now it’s time to use the roller. Just like when you paint a wall, the paint roller provided makes easy work of applying the resurfacing material to the rest of the bath.



Step 6 – Dry

Now all that remains is to let it dry. After 24 hours of drying you’ll be able take relaxing dip in your newly resurfaced bath.
