Can I install a tub the opposite way from the faucet?? I want to make it easier to rinse tub by having the faucet and drain opposite each other. Besides a little more work in lines should I or should'nt I???? Every time you try to rinse it now the dirt is fighting the water to the drain and being pushed back by the force. This would be much easier but can it be done? What would the cons be for this project??

IF the faucet and other hardware has no connection to the tub - that is, it doesn't fit through moulded holes in the tub etc. then I'd think the main problem would be to move the drain so that it is now under the new, relocated drain hole in the tub. You might have to take out the old tub to determine what's needed. It kind of depends on what's in the floor under the tub. Would air ducts or electrical wires have to be moved? Is there sufficnent vertical space to have a downward angle on the new drain pipe before it reaches the old drain? Stuff like that.
