I love this! What is the best tub to use outside? Acrylic, fibreglass, stone or cast iron? - Hi! I'm cutting out the window in my ensuite and putting in 2 small french doors that will open up onto a small deck where i thought an outdoor bathtub would be perfect! The deck would be made from hardwood decking to give a Balinese feel to my private little bungalow! And i'm not sure what type of roof to have whether to use a shade sail or to leave it in the open! Also i wasn't sure what would be the appropriate bath would be as stone is out of my price range and to have my old cast one reglazed costs approx $2000 which is also a bit rich! lol! Also which plumbing gear would i use so that it didn't rust or corrode! If you could help me that would be great! :) Thanks so much!

Most any tub will work. Be a little more careful if you are in a climate that has freeze thaw cycles. I recommend leaving the roof open, unless privacy is a concern, to be able to enjoy the stars at night. Fittings should be stainless steel or brass Avoid antiqued finishes since they sometimes don't hold up well in exterior locations or will change color if exposed to salt air. Anything rated for marine use on boats is a good bet.

Classic Clawfoot Tubs
Cast iron tubs have been around for hundreds of years. As long as the tub isn't chipped anywhere leaving an open invitation for rust, it would last a very long time. Acrylic would probably be fine too, but probably more sensitive to climate changes.
