Americast tub installation...tub creaks
Posted by Mark on January 06, 19101 at 02:00:26:
I installed my tub in accordance with mfr recommendations... level stringer, nails/screws, shims/thinset under the front edge to compensate for a slightly uneven floor. Brought the Wonderboard over the lip of the tub, taped and thinset all seams. Used the tub for a bath for the first time tonight and found that when I walk around in it the darn thing creaks at a couple of the securing points on the flange. I hadn't noticed a creak before...probably because the tub protector crackled when I walked on it masking any creaking that the tub may have been doing. I don't want to tile the walls before I fix this problem. Any suggestions?
