I am about to install a new tub.
The bottom of the soaker tub is 1.5" above the ground level.
(apron of tub is lower than tub bottom by the 1.5". Why, I have no idea!)
In the instructions it says;
"Ensure the bathtub rests solidly7 on the installed supports. Shim tub as req'd to insure a level installation. It is recommended that a layer of mortar be applied and covered with a 2 ml polyethylene sheet to facilitate levelling.
Now, what the heck kind of mortar would you use?
Thinset or other?
Maybe just cement?
Is tile adhesive considered mortar?
Thx in adv.
