Fixing a Crack in a Plastic Bathtub?

I have a crack in my plastic bathtub around the drain. It is about an inch and a half long. What is the best way to fix it with items around the house?

If it is a hairline crack, you can use fiberglass filler. If it is deep, you may have to replace the tub.

If the crack isn't too bad you can try to get a fiberglass filler to put around the crack to seal it. If the crack is really bad you may have damage under your tub and on your floor.

It might be best to have this checked out because the floor can start to rot if there is a lot of water leaking from this crack.

Quite honestly, there is nothing around that house that is good to fix this kind of issue. Depending on what is going on, you risk having water get into your floor and walls if this is not fixed and that can cause expensive repairs.

This is one place not to be penny wise and pound foolish and have a plumber look at it and do a professional repair.
