Replacing "Standard" Cast Iron Tub With Shower Base (Receptor)
Posted by Philip Maise on January 03, 19100 at 19:39:19:

I am replacing a "standard" 30x60 cast iron tub and want to buy a new shower base (receptor), and it can't be some cheap fiber glass. I will only accept cast iron, steel, or cultured marble, or Swanstone.
I have located only 1 base that is this size (Swanstone), however, it is barrier free and has the drain in the wrong position.

A "standard" drain is about 14" from the wall, not 15". I have gone and measured the drains on new cast iron bath tubs and sure enough they are 14" too.

Where can I find a manufacturer wise enough to make a shower base that will retrofit the millions of cast iron bath tubs.

Unless you can help me it is looking like I will have to build my own shower base out of ceramic tile. I can't move the drain since it is set in concrete.

Looking for Help
