- Bathtub leaks and has no warranty. Review by Doug Sebright
Once I had hooked the drain and faucets up to my household plumbing, I filled it with water. There was a slow leak in the tub floor. It appeared to be coming from the joint between two boards, that had separated slightly. I couldn't see the crack, but I could feel it, on the inside of the tub. I then e-mailed ALFI pictures and a detailed description of the problems. I didn't get a response, that day, so I gave them a call. I was informed that I could not return the bathtub, and they wanted me to repair it myself. When I questioned them about the warranty, that they list on their website, I was told that the warranty does not apply to the wooden tubs. They were polite about it and offered to send me a bucket, bench and stool, as compensation. I had no use for these items and requested that they return $200 to me, if I were to keep the tub and repair it myself. They were only willing to give me $100. I agreed to this. My only other option was to pay for freight, to send it back to them, and have my credit card company take the money back.
I was able to stop the leak with several heavy coats of polyurethane. It is a very cool looking tub and it fits in great with my knotty pine, wildlife themed bathroom. This tub is advertised as oak. I have built a lot of oak furniture and I have never seen oak that has grain, that looks like this. Maybe China has their own species of oak trees? Buyers looking for a high quality tub, with a good warranty, should look elsewhere. This is a lot of money to spend for a bathtub, that has cracks and leaks. (Posted on 2/19/12)
