Installing a bathtub is a fairly formidable task to do and more so if it is done as a do-it-yourself project. However this task can be achieved in a day's time, if done properly. Prior to installing a new bathtub, the first thing you will need to do is remove the old one. Your old bathtub is probably located between two walls with the plumbing work located on one of these walls. Simply disconnect the plumbing and pull the tub straight out. Keep in mind that the disconnection of the plumbing is an important task and should be done before removing the old tub. To remove the old tub first remove one row of tiling, then with proper tools, proceed to remove the tub. After the tub has been removed, the installation of the new tub begins. Just slide the new tub in and make the necessary plumbing connections. Turn the water on and check for leaks and proper water flow and make any repairs to damages that you may have caused on the walls.
