I just found your site and hopefully someone can help us! I have a bathroom not only is the tub leaking but also the toilet. The flooring is rotted. Because of this ‚Äì we are going to remove everything ‚Äì tile on walls, floor, sink, put in new window, - you get the picture.
The tub is cast iron. My daughters and I are going to try to remove the bath tub by ourselves. I have asked many people (‚Äúother‚Äù Men in my neighborhood) on the easiest way and only get ‚Äúlaughs‚Äù.
After reading though the old postings - some say it is easy, others say it is hard. Can we use a zaw-saw (sorry don‚Äôt know the correct name ‚Äì but have one) to cut so we can carry parts out of the room? Or cover the tub with an old blanket or rug and use a sledge hammer?
Please any suggestions would be helpful as we will be doing the removal in about 4 hours! I would love to get the tub out before my neighbors get home from work!
