    Asking it twice won't help much. The same people see it both times.

    A bathtub is usually made for a person. In countries where they use the metric system they use meters to measure people and therefore bathtubs.

    'Murica just wanted to be unique, land of the free and all XD. But what do u want to measure in the bathtub? area? Weight? volume? perimeter? it really varies with what you want to measure @kfrench30

    the beauty of metric is that all of those are SI derived Except for weight :P

    Or you might measure it in kelvin... if you wanted the water temperature for your physicist that was about to bathe.

    usually when shipping they usually just care about it's 3D dimensions.

    bathtub is usually hollow and doesn't weigh much relatively to the transport.
