Hello,

I'm new to the forum. Looking forward to getting to know some of you.

Here's the question. I would like to change the location of my bathtub. My house is on a foundation. Is it possible to change tub location since the drain is in the foundation? How would I go about doing it?

Any info would be helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Teddy

It will really depend upon the amount of money you have allocated to the project, your mechanical aptitude, and depth of the existing drain.

One of the first things I suggest is to go to ********** and ***** and buy a book on plumbing systems. They help explain the real complexities of the plumbing system. You can't just make changes unless you know what your doing.

If you find you have good mechanical aptitude, you can break up the concrete and relocate it, pretty much anywhere you want within reach of the venting system. The further you go, the more difficult.

I hope that helps.

Good Luck
