Looking for a Tub?

Buying a Tub
The retail locations below offer tubs at a range of prices.  Be sure to ask if they have any scratch and dent tubs which you might be able to purchase at a reduced price:

  • Lowe’s
  • Home Depot
  • Thomas Sommerville
  • Nolan Company
  • Fergusons

Practically Free or Free Tubs
Freecycle, Craigslist and Habitat for Humanity ReStore have daily changing inventory, so check often.

And finally, do not forget plumbing contractors or kitchen & bath remodeling companies – they have to put the old tubs someplace right?

Good luck and be sure to share if you have found a great resource for tubs!
