Hello, my husband and i just installed a steel bathtub in our new home (built 1890). i just took my first shower and there is a major problem! the water from the shower pools up on the back of the tub where it meets the wall and then runs in a stream along the back of the tub, around the corner, across the side and ON TO THE FLOOR! tons of water pooled up on the floor while i was showering. it seems the tub has a slight slant toward the floor. The whole thing is installed, calked, tub backing up. is there a solution? i assume the tub has to be shimmed or something???? Thank YOu

Sounds like it needs to be leveled, but until you can do so, there are plastic "corners" that you can caulk into place that will redirect the water back into the tub, providing the walls are immediately adjacent to the tub. I think any Wal-Mart or other discount or variety store would have them for a few dollars. It's a cheap and easy band-aid if you need to continue using the tub until you can fix it.
