New install 1pc shower/tub in 61" space
Posted by Dave Busselle on March 24, 19100 at 20:11:40:
I have currently gutted a bathroom. Replaced all floorint, tore off all drywall and replaced studs behind an old 1 pc cast tup w/tile surround. I am replacing with Lasco 1 pc 72x30x60 tub/shwr combo. I need to replace the old valving and drain. I can access the drain from the basement but the plumbing is on the outside wall(new valve is PF). How do I locate the new valve, not having access to the wall area of the unit? I can guess on lateral position but how do I figure the depth (extensio) into the shower itself.
The old valve extends about 2" from the old finished wall, but the new shower has more inset from the finished wall. How will I get the valve through the new shower side without access from the back? It has to be anchored to the wall, right. I can't let it float until joining it to the new unit? HELP db
