I would spend the money for a structural engineer to determine what changes if any are necessary to support the tub on the second floor. A lot depends on how old the house is and how many and how far apart the second story floor support are.

Which is the best toilet?

American standard cadet III is a nice flushing toilet that is reasonably priced. The tank is smaller than the cimarron. Toto also makes good flushing toilets that would fit your needs, but you will pay more for it too.

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets

The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

You find Cleaning and Maintenance Products for jetted tubs at the following website. US Parts Center

I have a air bubble bathtub,water leaks through 2nd row from the top of jets and comes out underneath tub.How can I plug these 3 approx. 1/32" size holes without ruining the appearance of the tub.

i am afraid there isn't a product out there to do that. your best solution is to have a repairman from the factory and repair the tub so it will not leak.

I have a 5 flr brownstone including the cellar. Each flr is 1200sq ft totaling 6000sq ft. There are two registers on each flr. I was told I would need at least a 250,000 BTU gas furnace to properly...

depending on the heat load calculation and the geographical location you live in a normal rating would be around 30000 btu per 1000 square feet... this could go up if you have high ceilings alot of windows,type of exterior structure( example :brick,wood siding,stone,log home etc) and the fact that it is split level would increase it some as well... 250000. not far fetched but sounds a little high unless you have alot of additional factors as mentioned above...hope this helps good luck servicer for 18 years

I have a tub spout that is stuck. My wife and I want to tile the walls around a tub, and I need to first remove the American Standard T6179/80/81 spout (with diverter) above it, but I can't get it to...

Tub spout threads onto end of pipe. The diverter does not play a role.

Sometimes these things get rusted in place, and you have to bend them getting it off.
When all else fails, get a big pipe wrench and muscle it until it bends up and comes off.
Sounds like you might need a new tub spout ... and might need a new pipe ... be sure to match length of pipe to depth of threads on new spout.
