yes my brand new acrylic bath i had brought & fitted has a small hole inside, on the curved bit (probably the weakest point)
i was wiping down a glass shelf from my fridge which conveniently slipped out of my hand resulting in a hole the size of a nail head (approx 0.5 cm/1 inch)
from the top the cosmetic damage is not major but the impact has 'blown' a small hole on the underside
replacing the bath would be a last resort as a repair seems the better option for now......
after doing some research i think the course of action below would be best bet
- patch the underside with a Loctite fiberglass repair kit

- patch the inside of the bath with a Cramer bath repair kit

what do guys think? i am also worried if the above does work then how long will it last?
any suggestions would be a big help

bigger pack than the cramer one and free delivery instead of a fiver so winds up cheaper.

I would say you've got it sussed out, patch the underneath with fibreglass and repair the top surface.

The fibreglass, if done properly will last as long as you want it to - I've no experience of the repair kits.
