Don wrote in and could use some help ASAP: I am starting my bathroom remodeling project and hit my first major snag. I ordered a Duravit whirlpool from an online supplier about 6 weeks ago. Duravit actually makes two models that are only 27.5" wide. I live in a 60's modern hi-rise and have only 28" to work with in bathtub width. I don't know of any other company which makes a whirlpool in such a narrow size.

After 3 different telephone check-ins with the supplier, I found out yesterday the supplier has no idea when or IF I will get the whirlpool. They claimed that Duravit was having trouble either making or supplying that whirlpool size. My contractor is ready to start in two weeks.

HELP! Does anyone know of a supplier for Duravit whirlpools that actually stocks the merchandise. I am really desperate.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
