My dad had an acrylic or plastic tub overlay put in sevreal years ago and it has cracked around the drain allowing water to get in between the tub and overlay. The company that did instalation is no longer around and other companys just tell me they will install new tub overlay. Dont want to spend 2500.00 to replace it. Is there any way to repair this?

Replace the tub. For $2500.00 you could have a new tub and tile. If you go this rout also change the faucet as you will have the wall opened up.

Overlays do not cost $2,500.00. If they did they would not sell a single one because you can do a complete replacement and repair the walls for less than that. Give the amount of work involved they should install for about $600.00, complete. Any greater than that and a new tub is a better deal.
