bathtub bottom squeaks. What's wrong?

I moved to this house one month ago. This place was renovated 10+ years ago.

I came to realize that when I stand in the bathtub taking a shower, the bathtub bottom is not stable. I can hear clicks and squeaks under the tub bottom.

What do you think is wrong and how I can fix it?

Hope I don't have to lift the tub redo it all...

thanks in advance

This sounds like an acrylic tub that wasn't placed in a setting bed. If you can get access to the underneath, you can try shooting in an expanding foam to add a little support under the tub.
Stay out of the tub for the curing time stated on the label.

There were posts in one of the categories in this forum within the last two months on this subject, along with some solutions as to how to fix the problem without tearing out a wall or floor. Do a search to find these posts. Thanks, David
