For copper bathtubs, which factors matter most when choosing which product to buy?
The most critical factor in the bathtub buying decision is overflow; you will need to cut the opening for the overflow onsite to ensure proper alignment with the plumbing. Another important factors are the finish - all of our bathtubs are a living finish, which means that the patina (color) may change over time.
