cast iron tub problem
 
i'm renovating a bathroom, i gutted it out but am gonna keep the tub and have itreglazed

only problem is the the wall side ledger board the tub rests on has become rotted and the tub is unlevel

anyone know of an easy fix or does the tub have to come out?

If you want to save money then you do it yourself. Fix the ledger board and have the plumber put it back and attach the plumbing fixtures and pipes. :whistling2:

If the tub must be pulled out --then why even try to save it---a new Kohler villager tub is about $300

The deep Mendota about $480---Re-glazing has to cost that much--and doesn't hold up long or look as nice as a new tub--Is the old tub something special?--Mike--
