  17. Don't you use stringers to support the tub.

    Reply
  18. How come the walls are not finished? Do you not have to have waterproof walls ie cement board or waterproof paint behind the tub?

    Reply
  19. I'm going to tackle this for the first time tomorrow. I appreciate all the detail!

  21. Is this an acrylic tub? I've been told by Maax (the manufacturer) to use silicone when connecting the drain of their acrylic tubs, not plumber's putty, because there's concern that the putty will degrade the acrylic (discolour and potentially even crack it). Have you heard of this?

  23. Shannon, I have a problem with installation of a bathtub (Delta 40034L) because I need to remove a part of the stud on the right at that place where the apron is (it doesn't go through). Bathroom is 60.5 in from stud to stud, bathtub is 60 in long and 19 in tall (since there is a base attached to the bottom of that tub), so diagonal of the apron is 63.02 in. The stud is 3 and 3/8 ", so if I remove that stud (part of it on the bottom), the problem will be solved. But how? That is a question for me. That stud consists of several parts, which vary in length, 1.5 and 3 feet each. I don't know how those parts are connected, but it shows lines with teeth marks on the borders. Of course I can cut off with the reciprocating saw, but think it should be done differently, using those parts (with teeth), where they are connected. There is electric wire there, but it goes horizontally (I saw it through the slit between the stud and drywall), so it shouldn't be a concern (I also can shut off power in that place). It is left sided tub, and I need to remove the stud on the right (if you are fronting the tub), where the apron is. My acquaintance wants to come and check if it is not a bearing stud. I think it is not since many people need to remove it (I saw in some films), I'm not the only one with that problem. They are actually two studs, one perpendicular to another, so if to cut that one which is parallel to the wall (leaving another one, which is perpendicular to the wall), nothing happens in the sense that the structure won't be jeopardised. But if you can (and have time of course) give your opinion about it I would really appreciate. Thank you for the great film.

  24. Nice video. I am installing the exact same tub and curious if you had any tips on shimming it across the short sides? I’m ok from the back of the tub to the drain but the shorter sides are down about 1/2 inch on the wall side. It’s hard to access the underside for shimming while it’s in place. Thanks.

  25. Do you usually set a tub on a plywood floor, or can you just set it on the floor joists?

  29. why do they use ABS instead of PVC for the tub drain? Thanks

    Reply
  30. ABS pipe should be manufactured with parallel lines running down the length that mark out every 45 degrees around it. I started to see them on the fittings around the hub recently.

  31. what's the size of the sub floor say you have to replace it

  32. Hilarious when he says “that’s not going to work”. The most common phrase when working on something

  33. My question is about the support peaple talks about under the tub, if I have a level plywood subfloor do I need any of this things like felt pad, mortar cement etc? Thanks

    Reply
  34. no mortar used at base?

    Reply
  35. Drain work is far harder with concrete slab foundations.

  41. I've always use 3/4 to an inch of 24×24 inch black rubber gym foam underneath never had an issue. Mortar cracks and creaks after it dries. I've also herd installers using dura bond 20.
