tub install

hey guys Im new here and hope Im following protocol. Im installing a new tub and trying to hang the level stringers. Problem is that I measured up from the floor and no two measurements are the same. whats the best way to get a level line without having to beef up the mortar bed. Thanks

You would need to find the highest point of the floor and go level from that point. After you have those strings in, the tub should be set in a mortar bed as per requirements of most tub specs.

Yup - set level at the highest point - build up the morter bed as needed.
