whirlpool tub installation
Posted by Bill Taylor on September 30, 1998 at 20:20:29:
I am planning to install a whirlpool tub in an alcove
44" wide x 65" deep. The alcove has concrete walls
and floor.(The alcove is a basement bulkhead fitted
with a large skylight)
I want a tub with a center drain to permit use of the
tub by two people. I am allowing an additional 30"
extension of the tub platform into the room. A 6 ft.
long tub will be located about 1 foot in from the front
of the platform in which it will be set and and about
1 foot from the rear wall.
Question: Is this installation possible? Can the drain
pipe be attached to the tub prior to setting it in place
in order to avoid a difficult plumbing connection?
Does the trap have to be located at the tub or can it
be located 3-4 ft away from the tub?
