We would like to remodel our original 1956 bathroom and are having a difficult time finding a replacement tub. The existing tub dimensions are 48 x 48 and the tub is on the diagonal. I have been told that this type is called a soaker tub. We can't get a standard 60" tub without having a dormer addition, which we want to avoid as we just completed a siding/roof project. The only options given to us is to have the original tub reglazed or go with a "bathfitters" company. I really don't want to go with either one of those options. Is there any manufacturers that make 48 x 48 tubs out there? Also, if we go with bathfitters what are the negatives?

Kohler still makes a 44 x 48 cast iron tub designed for a corner installation. It has a 14 inch deep, diagonal basin. It is the K-821-55 "Mayflower". It ain't cheap but costs less than a dormer addition. P.S. Please don't buy it in pink!

See it at http://www.us.kohler.com/onlinecatalog/detail.jsp?from=thumb&frm=&module=Baths&item=447302&prod_num=821§ion=2&category=10
