    What would be a reasonable price to pay for installation in Virginia of walk-in bathtub on site formerly occupied by jacuzzi tub. Old tub has been removed already. I have another contractor that will do the painting, tile, electrical etc so it is only the plumbing. I am told that metering valve has to be installed because it is state code.

    What kind of walk in tub did you purchase?

    Watch out which type you purchase - many have a high step to climb into them.

    If you can upgrade the tub's drain line to a 2" one this will help speed up the drain time. Also plan to install a handheld sprayer in your tub so while draining you can keep yourself warm with a little spray of water. Many of these tubs take a really long time to drain and you can get cold waiting to open the door.
