Can I place a clawfoot bathtub on hardwood floor??


Posted by rachael on May 24th, 2001 04:54 PM

I am installing a second bathroom in my 75 year old
home.
I have purchased a cast iron bath tub to be installed
on the polyurthaned oak floors that are original to
the home. The construction is sound.

Now I am begining to think that maybe this might not
be a good idea. Can the construction withstand
a cast iron tub full of water, and a person in it...
all resting on the 4 points of the claw feet?
What sort of reinforcement might I need to consider?

Thanks for any advise you may have...
