Hello:

Had a bathtub installed. The tub was fastened to the wall stud with some type of nail at the top of the flange .
Now the tub is loose & creeks real bad when taking a shower.
I'm told the installer should have used some kind of poxy / glue on the bottom of the tub. No glue was used to stablelize the tub. Where did the installer go wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Whoever stated the installer should have used an epoxy should be tied by a long rope attached to their neck and dragged 100 yards behind a galloping horse through cactus.

A bigger moron never existed and this person should not be allowed to breed or vote or give any advice

When installing a tub the correct procedure is to place a 2" x 4" on the horizontal with 2" x 4" legs vertically under the horizontal ledge for added support evenly spaced.

The tub apron should rest on this ledge which is set perfectly level. Then if one wants added security they can drill screws into the studs or brick behind the tubs apron.

Also many morons will invest well over a thousand dollars to redo a bathroom and then use a cheap steel tub that the enamel with not adhere to properly and makes a pinging sound when the tub fills plus it has a severe heat loss.

Crazy glue, Elmer's glue, rubber cement are not used in plumbing UNLESS your in a third planet nation
