The main reason to screw the feet to the floor is to keep the tub from moving which could cause the pipes to leak (either the supply or the drain) Authentic old clawfoot cast iron tubs were usually bolted to the floor because they were so heavy that it took a significant effort to move them, especially on a wood floor. If your tub is light enough that you could move it without a pretty significant push, then you had best bolt it to the floor in at least two places. Drilling holes through tile can be intimidating, but it's not as hard as you might think using an inexpensive masonry drill bit and a carbide tipped scratch awl. I will leave it to you to figure out how to assemble the claw feet to the tub, but here are a couple of important tips for drilling the holes through tile: Mark the hole locations with a felt-tip marker. Then use the carbide tipped scratch awl to gouge a starter divot in the tile. This divot can be pretty small, but it's essential for being able to drill a hole in tile in the right place. Use a variable-speed drill at fairly low speed to drill the hole - don't use a hammer-drill. Also keep a puddle of water where you are drilling to prevent the tile from heating up in one spot and causing the tile to crack. Once you get the hole through to the wood below, switch to a regular drill bit of a smaller size. Good luck, Al K

Which flooring is best for commercial space like gym or sports field. Is there any provider in Kansas city?


Having been in the flooring installation end of the business for over 20 years have you considered rubber mat flooring. It is about an inch thick and has interlocking tabs. Maybe I can find a hyper link.

Additionally on the market is a vinyl carpet tile...carpet on top....vinyl on the bottom...with a thin dense done inbetween
This is a very popular choice due to the ease of installation...using a peel and stick glue. It allows you to adhere the carpet tile to the floor and if future stains or issues arise you can take the carpet tile up and replace it. Very comfortable under foot....used on many commercial applications and now available at retail outlets like LOWES and home depot

Search the web for carpet tile...and releaseable adhesive for carpet tile.

You can compare prices vs wood, but I would not choose a wood floor personally.

Where does the rubber membrane go when tiling a bathroom floor


tiles on wooden floors will always move and crack the grout/tiling cement
therefore the rubber membrane goes down first with out nails and then everything is laid on top
that way when the wooden floor moves , there is a water proof membrane to prevent the water from rotting the wood over time

Bathtub installation


Now I see the wood stud is added support and the tub should rest on it. though it is not to hold the tub up. Like a man using a cane the cane doesn't keep a man standing by itself. Rather it helps a person be more stable that's what the stud does. Set at height for a level tub.

Here is a trick as well for supporting the back of the tub (Shimming) Get some of the expandable foam. Set everything in place like the wood ledge when you have everything in place and tub pre-fitted. Remove tub and place a line of foam along back side. Place tub in place and when foam expands and dries it will become your perfect shim. Hope this helps, thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck, Jeff

Wm 2487H. My machine is off balance and shake the house terribly bad. It also has a metalic scraping sound sometimes when the drum spins. I just purchased my LG washer and dryer a couple of months ago. I...


Starting in November 2008--LG introduced "square door" model washers.
These washers will (unlike round door models) perform very well on wood floors.
If the WM2487 washer is on a wood floor--even a tiled wood floor--it will be near impossible to get smooth spin performance.
Some homeowners have had success by adding two layers of 3/4 inch wood under the washer AND dryer.
The following steps were taken:
1) Remove washer & dryer
2) Cut & remove any floor covering (bare wood)
3) Locate floor joists with a stud-finder & mark locations at the edge of the flooring--allows finding the joist locations after 3/4 sheet is laid to floor.
4) Add wood glue to floor
5) Place 3/4 inch wood sheet to floor & drive screws thru wood into joists (as many scews as deemed necessary to fully & completely compress wood sheet to existing floor
6) Add wood glue to 1st wood sheet
7) Place 2nd 3/4 inch wood sheet on top of 1st wood layer and drive screws into floor joists.
8) Add molding if desired
9) Re-install washer & dryer and level.
10) Add one heavy towel into washer tub & close door ( this will mimick an off-center load)
11) Press power "on" button
12) Press "Spin Speed" button & select high speed spin option
13) Press "Start" button
14) When * 9 minutes remaining * is displayed--use the flat wrenchette that comes with every LG washer to "tweak" the adjustment of the front leveling legs. This will allow for "fine tuning" adjustment of the front leveling leg(s) to eliminate vibration / noise during the spin cycle. The rear leveling legs DO NOT need further adjustment.
NOTE: Those with pedestals--check the front leveling legs on the washer and on the pedestals (front only) during spin.
