Finding A Strange Tub


Anybody know where I can get a tub that is 26" or less wide?

The radiator next to the existing cast iron limits it to 26"

Standard radiator? You could have it replaced with a skinny one.

Re: Finding A Strange Tub


If I pull the radiator I'll just put in-floor heating in... really just looking for help finding 26" wide tubs... but since both local plumbing shops and Wayfair can't seem to find them... I'm going to lean towards in-floor heating

Or get rid of the radiator and have the electrician install a vent/heat/light combo unit.
