I am installing a new bath Tub, it is steel. It came with a formed foam pad underneath it that is level with the outside part of the tub that comes down and meets the floor. Now from what i understood you usually set the tub in mortar or something of that nature but it looks like this tub possibly just sits directly on the floor on top of the foam pad? It states warranty void if removed and it is sloped from back to front.
If the answer is yes to that question (does it just sit directly on the floor), then i assume i will have to move the drain directly under the tub because the old tub was off the floor enough that it had a pipe that came out from the drain horizontally and entered the drain pipe with a "T" of sorts.
Pretty much any residential plumbing questions. For "item specific" details such as a specific model of fixture, I will need to research and there may not be any useful information available.
Note: I live and work in Southern California. We do not, as a rule, use hot water or steam heating systems, oil fired boilers or private water wells so my knowledge in those areas is pretty limited. There are others here on AllExerts that can probably answer those questions better.
