    If I install the tub as I was originally thinking I wouldn't put up the third wall until I had the tub installed. This third wall will include the plumbing fixtures. I intend to make sure the...

    On the other hand, I just took a look at the installation instructions from Toto for this 1525 tub and they specifically say NOT to support the tub by the rim. Now I'm confused. :(

    So I think I've answered my question. I've done a bit more research and I see the recommended approach for installing an alcove tub requires a ledger board. It would be kind of hard to install a...
  4. Rough-in Side Wall Before or After Installing Alcove Tub

    I'm remodeling our hallway bath and I've gutted it to the studs including removing the partition wall for the alcove tub.

    It seems to me it would be easier to install my new cast iron tub (400...

    I've not yet had a chance to check this out more carefully. Will have to wait until the weekend but it is still losing pressure. So either I find a proper Schrader valve cap or I put a proper...

    Yea, that is my suspicion. Guess I need to include a proper shutoff in line.

    Yes, I think that is my next test.

    This is just a rough-in so there are no valves yet other than the air test gauge with a schrader value on it to fill and measure pressure. The ends are all capped with EP plug fittings and Uponor...

    Thanks for your reply.

    I can get Nibco at my local Home Depot. Based on your weight test, Nibco sounds like a better way to go. I also don't think it is cool that pex supply advertises one thing...

    Cello Fittings? Any opinions?

    I'm looking to place a decent size order with pexsup*** for PEX and related bits. On all the Pex related materials I'm going with Uponor (Wirsbo) but I'll still require a few copper / brass fittings...

    I'm installing one of theses in my bath remodel. The vent is on the main trunk, which is 3 to 4 ft from the toilet. Is that close enough?

    hj,

    Thanks for the name, "toe outlet". Helps to get the nomenclature right. This is what I had before I ripped it all out but I can see that replacing with the same configuration could be harder...

    Are you saying this is more of an issue with one design or the other?

    Tub Drain & Overflow Styles

    I have noticed that there are generally two styles of tub D&Os. The most common puts the p-trap under the overflow pipe and the less common has the p-trap directly under the drain. I've included...

    Jim,

    I think I now understand the concern with mixing different branch sizes at a manifold. It effectively creates a pressure imbalance. Having said that, I believe the showers should get...
