Let’s start with one inveterate truth…installing a tub isn’t an easy do-it-yourself project because it involves working with a large, heavy object in a small space. If you have any misgivings (or an epiphany of common sense!) about doing it, hire a plumber who has the experience to install it and the license to hook up the fixtures.
Here are a few steps that the very best of the DIY’S would take –
1. Push the tub into the enclosure and mark the top of the flange on the wall studs.
2. Measure and mark the location for the top of the ledger.
3. Use coarse drywall screws to fasten the ledger board horizontally.
Really? There is NO WAY that you want to tackle this! Even then, where is the guarantee that the tub will not leak? That is why you call Shawn.
