      I have now used this product twice now and the first time I had done my bath it was 7years ago they told me you would have to redo the bath after 5 years it has lasted 7years so I am very happy with the product so this month I bought another pack and I am very pleased with the outcome I would recommend it l👍👍

    2. Helen Reeves

      Tubby is very easy to apply and has made our old enamel bath look like new. The slight downside is the toxic smell which lingers. Good that face masks are provided in the kit to protect you from the fumes.

      Overall a good purchase.

    3. Ray Cave

      Brilliant piece of kit!
      Used this resurfacing kit to replace the surface of our large walk in shower which had been originally covered with a non-slip surface by the installer and had started to turn yellow.
      Stuck to the instructions rigedly and have been rewarded with a lovely even, bright and as yet (6mths on) durable surface – well worth the effort and a damn good product to boot.
      Try it you won’t be disappointed!

    4. Derek H

      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!

    5. Katie Dempsey

      Dear Tubby team,

      I would be delighted to provide a review. Here it is:

      Having recently purchased my house and not wanting to rip out the bath and tiles to replace the bath, I did some research about options to paint it instead and found this website. The bath had a few marks on it that I couldn’t clean off, plus a little rust in places.

      I was very impressed with the fast delivery, my tubby kit arrived within 24 hours which is much quicker than the 2 days stated.
      The instructions were simple to follow. I probably spent half an hour cleaning my bath with the special powder. Then about an hour or maybe hour and a half sanding the bath surfaces. It explained preparation is important, so I wanted to get this part right.

      It was easy to bag and tape the shower and taps and prepare all the edges with the masking tape.

      The first coat of paint took about half an hour. I then had to wait as it says 1 hour min drying time but no more than 2 hours. So I had a break then did the second coat about 40 mins later.
      I was working on a particularly hot day (we’ve had some very hot days), so I think this worked against me and perhaps the paint dried quicker. I could feel it become tacky quickly. Even though I was careful not to repeatedly roller over one area. It was quite difficult for me to see where I had rollered already. So unfortunately for me I did see the orange peel effect described by some other reviewers.

      However, it looks so much better than it did before. So I’m very pleased with it overall. I’ve attached a before and after photo. I could sand down to remove the orange peel effect, then perhaps apply another coat, but I think I’ll leave it.

      Overall I would highly recommend! It looks bright, fresh, clean and so much better than it did before.

    6. James Millar

      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.

    7. Robert Allan

      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

    8. Rhiannon Brobyn

      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.

    9. Mary L

      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.

    10. Tony Mackay

      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.

    11. Nick Buxton

      Very pleased with product ,easy to use ,and gives a lovely finish .the secret is in the preparation and following the instructions , would recommend it to anyone with reasonable D I Y skills

    12. Pat horsted

      Next day delivery not use yet but know some one that have and there bath look great

    13. Amanda


      We were really happy with the product. We had everything we needed to do the job. the instructions were simple and the bath looks great now. A very worthwhile buy and much cheaper than getting someone in to do it.


    14. Kevin Marshall

      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.

    15. D Paterson

      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

    16. Phil Avery

      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.

    17. George Winder

      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.

    18. Paul N

      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.

    19. Will Finnigan

      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.

    20. Julie Davies

      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.

    21. Christopher

      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!!

    22. Mike Halliwell

      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.

    23. L Williams

      Just re-enamelled my old cast iron bath using tubby DIY kit. Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. As for the result – WOW!!! It looks like a new bath. Would definitely recommend this product.

    24. Gail T

      Thanks for quick delivery and great product. I followed the instructions and ended up with a shiney new bath, would recommend anyone to try these kits, No real skill needed just a bit of confidence to have a go.

    25. Jeff B

      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.

    26. Mark W


      I would like to say how happy I am with my new Tubby bath, My bath looks like new and it was very easy to do with step by step instructions, just look at the difference on the photos Brilliant!


    27. Judy


      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.


    28. Brenda

      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.


    29. Sue G

      Excellent service delivery next day the bath paint worked wonders and very easy to follow instructions thank you

      Thank You

    30. Owen M


      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.


    31. John D

      Great job.

      Bath looks great just like new took taps waste overflow off made job much easier. Got a bit worried on second coat could have done with an egg cup full more in the tin but just managed it. Not a drop left over shall definitely use again.


    32. Malcolm D

      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!

    33. Jean D

      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.
