Question about American Standard Reminiscence 2908.020.165 Silver Slipper Soaking Bathtub...
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
