3 Things to Consider When Installing a Freestanding Bathtub

A freestanding bathtub can be a great addition. When installing this type of tub, remember a few important things.

Choose the Right Pipes

Because the tub you are installing is free standing, it will have plumbing pipes that are visible to most anyone who will use your bathroom. Because of that, you should choose attractive pipes. Bronze pipes are the most common choice.

Support During Installation

Before you start working on your tub, find something that the tub can sit on while you work underneath. Ensure that whatever you use is strong enough to support your tub and raise it high enough that you can work safely.

Level Your Tub

When installing your free standing tub, ensure that it is level. Use a level and shims where they are needed.
