basement bathtub installation tips?
We'd like to put a bathroom with a bathtub/shower combo in our basement. The concrete slab floor already has a shower drain pipe and toilet drain, which were installed when the house was built.
We had no problem installing the toilet. But when we talked to a contractor about putting in a bathtub, he said it would be too hard to install a tub to hook up to the shower floor drain. He said most tub drains go through the wall rather than down through the floor, and it would be too hard to align the heavy tub with the drain and get it to seal properly.
Any tips on how we can install a basement bathtub? We don't have a tub in the house right now, so I was hoping we'd be able to do this. Is a clawfoot tub our only option?
I'm a novice at remodeling, so I'd appreciate any advice.
