Question about Bathtubs & Whirlpools
I bought a model 2221 peanut soaker tub. It sits 1 1/2'' off the platform. I need the best way to support the bottom so we can actually use the tub. there were no instructions in the box. We asked the retailer they suggested we go on line with Crane for solution.
I just bought a 2221 Peanut which I am in the process of installing. I found it a very stiff tub construction, compared to some of the others I looked at. We put it in with ledger boards on 3 sides as directed, took a fair it of time to make sure they took weight, and got a pretty solid installation: with about 500 lbs of people in the tub, putting up wallboard behind it, there was no flex, movement, or noise. That's the same as one large person and 20+ gallons of water. More to the point--the installation instructions refer to low expansion foam, and say that it is not essential but may be helpful. I still have access to the underside of tub through the plumbing access panel, and figure I can get some under most of the length of the tub anyway, JIC.

Fill the tub one third full with water you must be able to access the under side of the tub cut hole in drywall if possible spray two large cans of sprayfoam allow 5 hours for foam to set and drain water. problem fixed.
