As a homeowner, its likely that you will want to remodel your bathroom at some point. Perhaps your existing bathroom or bathtub is dated or showing signs of wear; or you have moved into a new home and want a bathroom and a new tub that suits your style and tastes. Whatever the reason, remodeling your bathroom can be an exciting project.
Converting a bathtub to a shower is becoming ever more popular. For many people, its much easier to step into and out of a shower than a bathtub. A shower also provides the opportunity to have a seat while bathing.
Tubs and combination tub/shower units are usually set in place before any DWV connections are roughed-in. Its easier to verify the exact location of the drain opening this way, especially because manufacturers specifications often differ from the drain openings actual location on individual units. But before you set the unit, cut a 12-in. by 12-in. cutout in the sub-floor, centered underneath the tubs approximate drain location, to leave plenty of room for the waste and overflow (W&O) tee and tailpiece. After the tub is in place, the tub W&O fitting can be assembled, installed, and connected to the P-trap and DWV system. If the tub will be set on a slab, there should be a tub box, or opening in the slab, with a P-trap and drain already waiting to be connected to the tailpiece of the W&O fitting. In this case, the W&O will already be installed before the tub is set in place, though making the final connection will be a little tricky.
