I experienced what I thought was a disaster with my 100+year old claw foot tub. A severe chemical reaction from very strong drain cleaner, releasing toxic gas fumes in my flat, resulted in the enamel bottom of the tub being eaten away… in spots, to the bare cast iron!  The management company running my building sent The Bath Tub Medic to do whatever repairs that could be done to such an old fixture. I honestly felt it a lost cause and was already mourning the loss of such a fabulous tub. Wayne Watkins, owner of The Tub Medic spent the entire day, not leaving till almost eight thirty at night,doing what can only be described, as a miracle! My tub now looks better than when my Husband and I moved in almost thirty years ago; truthfully, pretty much back to mint condition!! I am in awe of his workmanship and the loving care he obviously has for his profession, giving this tub another 100 years of showing off its true beauty! I can think of no higher compliment to give him and his Company, than to call him a true “Michelangelo” of his trade…
