    Default Securing a free standing Victoria & Albert tub

    I am in the planning stages of a bathroom remodel. We are looking at a tub made by a company called Victoria & Albert Bath LLC. The model is called 'Ios'. Here is a web page that shows the tub:
    http://vandabaths.com/usa/products/ios/

    I'm curious to hear thoughts on exactly what secures this type of tub to its place in the bathroom. Is the drain connection the only thing that really keeps this tub from scooting around the room in the event of an earthquake? We live in Los Angeles and I wonder if that connection is enough. Is this a factor that would favor the use of a cast iron drain assembly over ABS? Would this type of tub be glued in some way to the floor?

    Thanks in advance.
