One of Aquatica’s popular bathtubs was recently put to the test after a bathhouse in the Latvian countryside went on fire. The bathtub remains in remarkable condition, despite the fire and staying outside in harsh weather conditions for six months, under direct sunlight, wind, rain, frost and hailstones. The bathtub still has a pearly white color without yellowing. All it needs is a quick easy clean with a Scotch-Brite pad and it will look brand new again.
