Hi, i've got a question for you all-knowing guru's of the AH lounge... I recently moved into a new apt (~4 months ago) and for the past month or so, there's been a plastic-like coating that is peeling off in chunks from my bathtub... I don't know exactly when it started (maybe i used some bleach=based cleaner or something) but it has come off in large chunks! I've never owned a house or anything, so I was wondering if this was some way they used of coating the tub to prevent damage to the porcelain or something? The coating is very white, while underneath is a slightly duller gray... If it's not a big deal i'd rather not have maintenance coming in, so I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what this stuff was? Thanks! Dave

Never heard of it before. My guess, they cheaped out on installing a new tube and coated the old one. I'd call maintenance. If you let it go, they could pin the repair cost on you.

Hey Kachi, thanks for the link!

I found something on there that talked about refinishing tubs, so it looks like that's what they did! Appreciate it... Posted Image
