Either way. It is easier to connect if the tub is placed first and the front is open to connect the drain and water, but it is harder for the tile person, because he has to work to an exact measurement. Tiling first reverses the two. The tile person has an easier time, but it is harder for the plumber. It just depends on whether you have a better plumber or tile person.
: We bought a Jacuzzi tub that is being put in a new bathroom. The tub will go into an area surrounded by walls on three sides, so those three sides will have a tile flange installed. The probelm is the from. The unit does not have a built-in skirt, so a tiled knee wall is being built along the front.
: The problem is on the top of the knee wall. Do you tile the framing first and then sit the tub on the tiles (like you do with a sink into a countertop) or do you put the tub in place and tile up to it? The plumber swears that you put the tub in place and tile up to it, but Jacuzzi says that you first tile and then put the tub on the tile. Any opinions?
