What is a Bath liner?

A bath liner is a new acrylic bathtub that is custom-molded to fit right over the existing bathtub. Measurements and photos are taken of the existing bathtub and are entered into out tub identification program to determine what mold is the exact duplicate. Then, a sheet of ACRYLIC bathtub material is thermoformed to the exact dimension. With over 600 molds, an exact watertight fit is not a problem.


What do they do with a wall?

Just as with the bathtub, the wall is measured and then a sheet of acrylic is thermoformed to the necessary dimensions.


Who will do the installation; and how long does it take to install?

All our installers have been trained in acrylic / bathroom installations, as well as conventional bathroom remodeling. Bathtub or shower base and wall surround systems are installed in one day. Your bathroom is ready to use the very next day.


How long will it last?

With proper care, your EZ bathtub, shower base or wall system will keep its high-gloss shine indefinitely. Our acrylic bathtubs, shower bases or wall systems are impact resistant …the surface will not chip, fade, rust, peel or dent.


Why not just replace my old tub?

To replace just your old tub requires ripping out your old tub and tile walls … a dirty, tiresome chore. An acrylic liner provides all the beauty and function of a new bathtub without the disturbance to your home.


Why not re-glaze or repaint my old tub?

Re-glazing or repainting your tub provides a temporary fix. These applications are messy, smelly and noxious. Repeat applications need to be done every one to three years due to the cracking, peeling and discoloration.


Is it easy to clean and maintain?

Since the product is non-porous, it is really easy to clean. At the time of installation, EZ Bath provides care and cleaning instruction sheet, as well as a list of approved cleaning products.


What is acrylic?

EZ Bath products are made of durable, high impact acrylic … the thickest bathtub material available today (.270” - .325”). The material is engineered utilizing thermoforming technology and the latest advancements in manufacturing; resulting in a material that will not chip, peel, rust or crack. The smooth, non-porous, stain resistant, high gloss finish is extremely east to clean. Because it is light weight, durable and very easy to clean, this same acrylic application is used in airplane windshields, football helmets, sailboats, saunas, spas, pools, and many other products.


How are you able to match my tub so precisely?

An EZ Bath representative goes to your home. They will take several photos and measurements. Armed with that information, we can determine the size, age and manufacturer of your tub. With over 600 bathtub molds in our ware house, EZ Bath is able to match a mold to your specific tub type. An EZ Bath installer scribes the acrylic bathtub liner for an exact fit. The bathtub is then cleaned with denatured alcohol. The installer lines the existing bathtub with a butyl sealant and inserts the bathtub liner over the existing tub. The new overflow and drain are installed. A thin bead of silicone is then applied around the edges, and the job is completed. This process should take approximately 5 – 6 hours.


Will I ever have to regrout?

No. Our wall systems eliminate the need to grout, as well as other tile maintenance problems.


Do I need to remove the tiles?

No. EZ Bath bathtub or shower base wall systems are installed directly over your tile walls. No demolition is needed. Prior to the acrylic wall installation, the walls are cleaned and sanitized with Microban. Microban is an antimicrobial protection which kills germs, bacteria, fungi, mold and mildew. If the surrounding walls are damaged and in need of repair, we make the necessary repairs prior to our installation. The acrylic bathtub or shower base and wall systems are installed using a three gasket system, meaning the walls are completely waterproofed!


How long is my bathroom unavailable?

An EZ Bath bathtub can usually be installed in less than 5 hours. With a new wall surround, ceiling panel, new shower body or other accessories, a new bath system installation can usually be completed in the same day. You can use the bathroom the next day. Even if circumstances force us to delay completion (factory sent wrong tub, leaky plumbing needs to be fixed by a plumber, wall repair is more extensive than anticipated), your bathroom will be usable and available.
