What type bathtub am I looking for?
I am replacing an all in one bathtub/wall surround with a new tub and will be tiling the walls surrounding it. The tub is not in an alcove and the rear of the tub has no hard wall (the tub is only surrounded by 2 hard walls, one on the faucet side and then the length of the tub). Since I am tiling do I need a tub with a flange just on the two sides where the hard walls are? If so, what terminology am I looking for? I've looked on Home Depot and Lowes websites but not sure I am looking for the right thing. Thank you!
