Depth/Placement Of Tub's Valve Stem
Posted by Gab on March 30, 2002 at 21:40:24:
I'm installing a new tub/shower surround ....

Assuming my tub's alcove is the correct size and width for the tub and walls, how do I know how far back to mount the Faucet Valve Stem so I have the correct depth when the wall is in place? Do I have some tolerence because it doesn't seem as critical of an issue with the shower arm? ... or does it?

Also, what the recommneded height of the spout nipple, faucet valve stem, and shower arm (72"?)?
