What can I do, my bathtub is wrecked?

I got a new rubber to put in the bathtub so it would not be slippery. This morning, I wanted to wash the tub and when I took the rubber out, the bottom of the bathtub is all like scaly. Pieces have been ripped. The bottom of the bathtub is wrecked! I am afraid to tell my landlord as she will probably make me pay for damages. Is there a way I can repair this by myself?? Please help!!

What type of tub?

Sounds like your landlord performed a cheap respray painting of the tub.
Probably multiple times incorrectly without properly prepping it.

Of course the paint will come off.

Id complain to the landlord to replace it!

+1 jj. make this her fault! a non stick mat should not damage a bathtub unless the finish was shoddy.

I always have to laugh when I see a thread described as "Not Work Safe." Is there anything on the OT forum that's really "work safe"? If I were your boss, I'd be mad if you spent any time on this forum at work at all. How is a picture of a naked girl any less work safe than, say, a picture of a matador getting gored in the *** by an angry bull? - VaderDave

Once you spray the tub, there is no turning back. Nothing will fix the peeling except a respray. It was the moisture trapped under the rubber causing the paint to peel. Re-spray is the only way out. HD sells a small spray kit. Probably 20-30 bucks. The paint will peel regardless since it is never cured in high temperature. Right now, to stop it from peeling, take out the rubber after shower.

Keep the old bath mat. When you move, leave it in the tub, covering the damaged area.

When the new people move in and they remove the mat, they will think they were responsible.

Problem solved.
