In response to Re: Cast Iron Tub Which Fills From the Drain UP
If it is like most of the ones that filled that way, you cannot convert it. You would have to install a second faucet above that one for the shower. That drain/faucet combination was the epitome of unsanitary cross connections.

: HI,

: We recently purchased a 100+ year old cast iron tub which sits on
: a pedestal (skirt) thingy. The unique thing about this tub is that
: it fills from the drain up, not through a faucet. We would like
: to make this tub into a tub/shower combination and it came with
: solid brass plumbing ... How can we convert this to a shower combo.
: without having to waste the beautiful solid brass fittings? Any advice
: would be appreciated! Thanks :)
