|In response to Re: Tub Replacement|
: : I will be removing a cast iron tub and walls and replacing with a fiberglass tub and surround unit. What are the critical issues to watch for when going through this process. I know making sure the unit is square and has rim support are critical, but what about providing a base. I'm concerned the fiberglass will not have the proper support once filled with water and people? Do you fasten fiberglass tub to studs with screws?
How does the backwall unit to the fiberglass tub go on..is there a certain sequence of events that one should follow when removing the steel tub, installing the new fiberglass tub and the back wall, fixtures and so on...this will be a first-time project so any information you could send as far as installation, hazards, what should be disconnected first, etc would be very much appreciated.
