Bathtub Drain Rust Hole Repair | Bathtub Overflow Rust Hole Repair | No Need For Tub Replacement Due To Having A Rusted Hole In Your Bathtub
This is often due to having a leaking overflow or drain gasket that is seeping water around the steel tub causing it to rust out around the tub drain or overflow.
Here we’ll go over both types bathtub drain overflow rust hole repair to demonstrate the effectiveness and the proper way to deal with this issues.
Should you hire a bathtub refinishing contractor to do this – choose wisely and ask probing question based on what you’ll learn here. As I have seen many times, these repairs are done completely wrong, using amateurish methods.
Let’s dig in, here I’ll demonstrate a double rust out overflow and drain repair using time tested and field tested repair using new metal and re-in-forced fiberglass gel.

Here I’ll Go Over Bathtub Overflow Rust Hole Repair.
There you go, if you were asking can a tub drain rust hole or tub overflow rust hole be fixed – repaired you now have your answer.
This wasn’t cheap to fix, though it’s rare to have a bathtub drain rust hole & bathtub overflow rust hole or double rust out (as I call them) with this one coming in just over a thousand because the tub required a chemical stripping of a previous cheap tub refinishing job, as well both drain & overflow repair, refinishing and new hardware.
It still saved the 3 to 5 grand to replace the tub and the week of construction mess ripping out the walls – tub and plumbing.
Plus it’s was still less than installing a bathtub liner as well.
And it only took one day for the entire bathtub drain overflow rust hole repair – refinishing operation making it convenient and a huge savings. Of course it would be less costly should you only have one or the other needing repair and whether the tub required stripping a previous refinishing job.
The problems I see in amateurish repairs are:
- Not removing the bad rusted metal.
- Not using fiberglass cloth to bridge the opening.
- Not using reinforced structural fiberglass gel.
- No metal ring installed for mating to the gasket.
- Using Bondo type filler which is not waterproof or structural in composition.
Simply by asking some probing questions about bathtub drain rust hole or bathtub overflow rust hole repair you’ll quickly discover whom not to use for this type of advance repair which does require good deal of knowledge, skill and artisanship.

There are many fine men and women that paint bathtubs and tile, and most are fine and decent people that work hard… AND THEY ARE FINE FOR WHAT THEY DO, but what I do is quite different… And it’s why the media seeks out my opinion.
Because… you see, while others are just tub painters, I offer you true BATHTUB RESTORATION not to be confused with ‘just painting your tub or tile’. You might say “In a class of its own”.
The difference lies in the high performance of triple adhesion technology of the TubPotion process, that I created, that utilizes polyester vs polyurethane or epoxy coatings. [/three_fourth_last]
Along with a water repelling additive built into the TubPotion coating, that helps keep your tub or tile sparking clean. That out delivers in quality and durability every-time.
Because, I believe in offering the highest level of quality and service to our clients. I know you want to be treated just like I would want to be.
I worry about folks looking for cheap deals by inexperienced contractors who can’t get work and keep lowering their prices. Or accidentally falling for a call center posing as a local company, both are a recipe for disaster.
You’ll benefit from my experience starting in 1983 restoring classic cars. My deep appreciation of utilizing the most advanced chemistry to date. And being a Virgo you’ll benefit, that I suffer the dreaded trait of being a perfectionist.
