Important to install whirlpool in mortar base?
Posted by Charlie on April 15, 19101 at 20:28:13:
I am installing a new Kohler whirlpool with a tile deck around it. The installation instructions list installation in a bed of mortar (covered by a plastic sheet) as one of three options, the others involving anchoring the tub either by glue under the feet or caulk at the edge of the deck. The tub feels very sturdy as is. Is there much value in using the mortar base? What is common practice?
