Default Bath Tub Chip

Hello all,

I am new to the forum and to remodeling. I have chip in my bath tub, I was wondering what I would use to fill that chip in or cover/protect it from water. I dont know the name of the tub.




Thank
Dan

I've used this stuff in the past with some success. It isn't perfect, but it makes it much less noticeable.

OZ Bottle, White, Porcelain Touch-Up Paint, For Porcela

I agree with travelover. You can also use appliance touch-up paint. Just make sure the spot is clean and dry when applying.

Do I have to worry about any type of leakage?

If this is just a chip off a metal tub, the answer is no.

Not if there is no hole in the tub. I am assuming it is a metal tub and not plastic or other acrylic.
