Not everyone knows that bathtubs were made entirely from wood or stone 200 years ago. Our option is far broader today, and anybody who wants to take a bath would certainly face the question: what kind of the most common types of bathtubs are better: cast iron or stainless steel bathtub? The argument is that there are both advantages and disadvantages to each of these products. And we need to figure out the benefits and disadvantages of each of them to work out what will be an appropriate choice for our houses.
Key features of iron made bathtubs
Gorgeous enamel: The consistency of the porcelain enamel they are painted with is a good attribute of cast iron baths: it is clean, a little glossy, and polished and allows a velvety bath to feel.
Longevity: The enamel of cast iron baths is non-porous, making it easy to polish, scratching, and stain-resistant. Cast iron baths are considered generally the most robust of all fabrics for bathtubs. Made of iron and very thick, a few generations of a family will serve those baths.
The stillness: One other advantage of such a pool is its noiselessness, no resonance, or sound while the bath is being filled in.
Key features of stainless steel bathtub
High enamel performance: Enamel from steel baths never peels off, since it is baked along with a bath in a furnace and thus turns out to be “fused” into steel.
Small body weight: Porcelain-enameled steel baths are four times lighter as opposed to cast iron ones.
Bigger form range: Steel is a versatile material, so there is a larger range of shapes.
