Installing tub on concrete
Posted by Fiona on November 27, 2002 at 10:55:48:
We are finishing a full bathroom on a concrete slab where the PVC waste plumbing is already roughed in.

Unfortunately the tub drain is not set down in a well - does this mean we have to raise the tub on a platform to fit the drain underneath?

The toilet waste has no room around it to get the closet flange over it unless it too remains above the concrete floor. So the toilet may also have to be raised - unless you can get flanges which go inside the drain rather than outside.

Also the toilet waste is 14" from the wall. Are there toilets which are designed for 14" rather than the usual 10 or 12?
