Clawfoot Tub Shower Curtain Question
I have a claw foot tub shower. The problem is that water always splashes back on the wall behind the faucet and stand pipes and drips through the floor. The shower curtain never stays put no matter how I rig it up. Any thoughts?
Pretty common problem and a frustrating one for sure. If you have a cast iron tub then I would suggest something like this Sign of The Crab Surround Shower Curtain. It’s a curtain with magnets embedded in the bottom so it would stay in place easily. It’s also 180 x 70 inches of heavy vinyl so you’re going to get full coverage. You may be able to do the same thing on your own by purchasing some rare earth magnets and attaching them to the bottom of your curtain somehow. Perhaps sewing them on or some type of adhesive… but buying one pre-made would certainly be easier.
Everything that I’ve read also points to the fact that having a heavy vinyl curtain .15mm thick versus the ones that most people buy for $10 or so will make a difference as well.
If you have any acrylic tub then of course the magnets won’t work and you’d want to go with a curtain that is weighted at the bottom. This will not be as effective as magnets but if you have an acrylic tub then it’s the way to go. Again you could just go with getting a 180 inch heavy vinyl shower curtain and see if that solves your problem and add some weights to the bottom if necessary. Just make sure that the weights don’t come into regular contact with the acrylic surface as it may scratch it over time.
