tub install


I have a gap of 3 1/2" after tub sits on side ledges. Is that too much to fill with mortar.

Don't have clue what you are talking about, but somehow I still suspect the answer is "Yes, 3 1/2 inches is too big a gap for mortar".

Can you post a pic?

I suspect the OP wants to support the bottom of the tub with a mortar bed. Not all manufacturers recommend this. I suggest he consult with the maker of his tub for installation instructions.

I wouldn't think you would want mortar bed 3 1/2" thick under a tub. Why not just lower the ledger boards. Something just doesn't sound right about this post.

Thanks for the posts. Problem solved. I was sold a tub that was suppose to have the plumbing run underneath not through the floor. They come with a skirt that keeps the tub 3" up off the floor when levelled with the side ledges.

Bought a tub that sits on the floor like the other one. Thanks all
