Help! Roman tub does not accept deck faucet!

Posted by sally217 (My Page) on

We are in the final stages of our house (thankfully!) and the freestanding roman tub (Mirolin Azzura Kuma) is ready to be installed. Unfortunately I just realized (way too late) that the tub does not come apart in 2 pieces (as most freestanding tubs do), and does not accept deck-mounted faucets. The issue is that the bathroom tile is installed and it is a heated floor, so now the floor cannot be cut.

Is anyone aware of a solution to either
1) adapt a floor-filler to access the water supply pipes (pex piping) that are currently located next to the drain pipe in the floor.
Or
2) adapt the tub to accommodate a deck mounted faucet. I have already purchased the Moen Rizon faucet http://www.moen.ca/rizon/chrome-two-handle-low-arc-roman-tub-faucet/_/R-CA-CONSUMER%3AT935
But it can be returned if need be.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Can you return the tub? We are getting the Mirolin Azzura Azul tub and considered returning it for the smaller Azzurra Merro, the supplier would let us return it with a 25% restocking fee, ouch!!!! Considering they still have it as the plumbing company hasn't picked it up yet. The Merro is similar to your tub but has the deck mounting option.

Or you could talk to a plumber to see what your options are and if you can use free standing faucet which also can be pricey to install and buy.

What about wall mounted? Would still require breaking the wall but that might be easier than having to cut into the floor.

You could even build a niche in the wall and mount the faucet there.
