garden tub support

Heres the scenerio:

New home... garden tub in master bath, supported by rim only. Couple inch gap below tub to subfloor ( particle board and engineered floor joists)

anyone heard of support by pouring a concrete 'slab' beneath as opposed to support by wood. Concrete seems a little overkill

no idea the manf. of garden tub so cannot refer to manf instructions

thanks Jerry

Unless the tub came with a specially reinforced bottom, it's supposed to be set in some kind of grout -- concrete, mortar, or even plaster.

Hi,

I looked at a new all-fiberglass accessible shower installed in a 57 year old home today. They'd filled the void under the pan with expandable foam from a can and then cut through all of the foam to expose the hole in the pan so they could connect the plumbing from the basement below.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
