    clawfloot tub with S-union 1/2 NPS thread

    I am trying to install a clawfoot tub faucet using provided S-union in an inside the wall mount. It's taken me over 2 weeks of research to discover that the S-union is an NPS (straight) thread not a NPT (tapered) thread. After going to too many plumbing supply stores where no one knew the...

    Nonstandard claw tub drain configuration

    I am plumbing a claw tub drain. I have mostly seen them plumbed straight down from the overflow, with the drain entering horizontally (pic 1). online i see products where the drain goes straight down and the overflow sweeps under to join it (pic 2). in my case there's framing and plumbing in...

    Small ring of water sitting around tub

    So I am in the process of installing my claw foot tub. I have installed the drain and it is not leaking. However, because of the nature of it being an old tub, there is a small ring of water around the tub drain. This is purely because of the deep slope of the drain area and the lack of a...

    Move Clawfoot tub without cutting into slab

    I’m in a very old house with a Clawfoot tub that’s about 16 inches away from a side wall and this is wasted space so I’d like to move it over.

    Clawfoot Tub - Ledger?

    Recently purchased a home with a clawfoot tub that is installed in such a way that you can't really get a shower curtain around it. The lip of the tub appears to be resting on a 2x4 with a bit of trim attached to it. I think it is just cosmetic but would like some confirmation before I start...
