got any fix for tub floor flexing? the tub has a Styrofoam support on
bottom but it still flexes. I think the contractor installed the tub too
high. the tile is already installed around on the walls.

Great video. I am in the process of installing a new bathroom after gutting
the old one. Very glad I watched this video first before I started.

What a great video. Wonderful job and so many pointers. Well done, and

great job..thanks for sharing..the only thing I cant understand is how the
tub will stay clean and scratch free after all the tools and stepping and
dirt in the tub..

I wish I could afford to have you come to Lafayette and replace my tub.
But, alas, I must do it myself…and this video has really helped me plan
ahead for the project.

Surprised you are using this foam under the tub. Wouldn’t it be better to
use something dense that will not contract?

Hi Michael- Can’t you just put additional sister studs in back wall in
order to close gap between studs and back of tub lip?

…some of those drain/overflow kits are crap…beware of kits with
many/multiple adjustments, with gaskets here, gaskets there equals leak
opportunities…pipe and glue are better.

TOO DAMN SLOWwas my first thoughts but, after watching, realized how
thorough you have covered everything allowing a good ‘sink rate’.Great job,
will watch more of your great work!

Great video with great input and tips! Unfortunately for me, I told my wife
about it and have been told to remodel our bathroom. Wish me luck!!

What is the saw used here? Looks like a reciprocating saw but much smaller
and better for tight spaces than an old sabresaw…

The videos were a huge help to me for my first tub installation. I
installed exactly the same model Bootz tub so that made it even easier.
Thank you for making and posting this video.

Stephen MayePosted on  10:57 pm - Jan 23, 2017

Can you tell me what the brand and model of the tub used in this video? The
black underside reinforcement looks like it would make it feel more solid.
