When a bath, shower tray or basin gets chipped or cracked this not only looks unsightly but, a crack will leak water and can swell and damage the wooden frame supporting it and even cause damage to the floorboards and cause a leak through your ceiling. A chip can be a home for bacteria and dirt and it can even rub against your skin opening up your pores.
A chipped or cracked bath can be costly in replacing it as you have to take into account certain things when changing a bath. Lets add this up taking into account you're keeping the taps.

What if the tiles get damaged during removal? Is there a shower screen bolted and sealed to the wall? Who is going to dispose of the old bath and how much is that costing? Do you need to take time off work to wait in? Can I get it repaired rather than replaced?
