Acrylic tub installed w-out frame. Serious?


Thanks. I will ask the manufacturer if the installation of a wood apron is necessary for support, and if leaving it out will void warranty. As for the foam, I looked to Home Depot for something that can be easily obtained here, and found "SikaFix PU". Wonder if you have heard of it or think it will work? Description: "Low-toxicity, two-component, 100% solid, polyurethane flexible foam. Use to stop water under a hydrostatic head and provide a resilient tough and flexible, closed cell polyurethane grout".

If the manufacturer okays the foam solution, I will ask the contractor to fill the tub with water first, before applying it. (I read that will prevent it from lifting the tub).

Actually, putting holes in the tub or through the floor below or anything that extreme won't be necessary here. There are two access holes in the drywall from which you can have (at least partial) access to the underside of the tub. One is in front of the drain area, the other on the side opposite the apron (tiled wall side).
