|In response to Re: Installing 60" tub in 60" space|
: What kind of faucet can be used? Is yours of Roman Tub type?
: The faucet issue has me baffled. I'm looking now at faucets for industrial type sinks.(restraunt sorta) The good thing is these have a swivel spout so if two people want to use the tub, the spout can be moved out of the way. The problem is how fast will the water come in - GPM.
: : Also, I'd like to extend the new flooring a little way under the new tub so that I don't have a possibly leaky strip of caulking to seal the gap where the flooring meets the tub. I don't think this kind of seal is ever truly waterproof. Is this recommended? I'll be using top of the line vinyl flooring, and any replacement flooring 15 or 20 years from now can just meet the tub while the old flooring still keeps the water out.
: : Your advice will be appreciated.
A tub spout does not have to be mounted with the handles.You can locate at the side of the tub if you want. Federal water conservation laws do limit flows to under 5 GPM, however this is usually done at the aerator. There is usually a compliance notice contained with the faucet.
