Faucet mixer installation one-piece tub/shower
Posted by MarkDIY on December 24, 2003 at 10:06:57:
I'm installing a one-piece fiberglass tub/shower unit. The faucet mixer I have has a piece of black plastic around the stem that's 6" in diameter. I believe that part will be removed for the actual install.

When installing the mixer, the should the face of that black plastic piece be flush with the fiberglass side of the shower? In other words, do I cut a 6" hole in the unit? Also, are there any standard heights (on center) above the floor for the spout and the faucet handles?

Any insight is appreciated. This will be an expensive one to screw up! Happy holidays.
