Can a rough-in be created for Italian tub faucet?
I am renovating our master bath and am having a time with finding a tub faucet that will work, both in terms of design and plumbing. The faucet I like is of Italian origin, the La Torre Tech Deck Mount with Handshower (spec here http://www.tubz.com/images/latorre/12044t.jpg), but it arrived without a rough-in and my plumber says he cannot install without it. The company says it can be attached without a rough-in. I have yet to see an Italian faucet sold with rough-ins, yet surely people order them. Does anyone have experience with installing such a faucet? Can it be done and still pass inspection? Thanks.
