I have an acrylic soaker tub that is approx 3 yrs old. I noticed a smal u shaped crack in the bottom of it recently. Is there a quick and easy repair for it that I would be able to do at home?

Acrylic tubs are easily fixed by someone in the business -- the home builder I used to work for always hired a professional service for this work and they could fix any tub damage. Just search (online or phone book) under acrylic repairs -- or if you know a plumber, ask them for a referral.

As for repairing it yourself, after having observed the repair person we used to hire, I wouldn't attempt anything larger than a deep scratch myself -- and I'm not sure what products are available for such a do-it-yourself repair job.

hope that helps,
