    Hmm - what about the anti tip brackets?

    How do you flood test it?

    Did you see this article on mine on Houzz.com? Why to put tub in the shower



    Here is one way you could do it. This install did not require the anti tip brackets. The tub was a reclaimed cast iron soaker. The black tube to the right of the tub filler is a 2" No Hub Fitting.

    Not an easy install.

    After the flood test the room was tiled. With the No-Hub fitting left in place. Then I cut it about 1" higher than the tile floor. Later the plumber drop the tub into position. The overflow pipe sliding through the no-hub fitting. We then siliconed the top and bottom.

    GTG.

    OK Thanks. I see that now. But my question is beyond that and maybe my question is so stupid that it wasn't apparent what I was asking.

    How does the No-Hub fitting break though the membrane and maintain watertightness?

    It's not like a proper shower drain assembly that ties into membrane. ??

    Thanks for your help

    Thanks johnfrwhipple! Your detailed instructions were very very helpful. booking the phone call via no-curb.blogspot.ca was worth every bit.
