In response to Re: Americast bathtub

: I installed a American Standard Americast bathtub.It seems like it has some flex in the bottom of the tub.Is this normal when you stand init? I weigh 175.

Mike,
The tub will flex.
Caulking between the tile and the tub should be Silicone.
All steel tubs will have some flex.
It's normal.
Cast Iron doesn't flex.
Tub flex can be reduced by placing mortar or expanding foam under the tub. If you do that, place some water in the tub first to weight it down.
