Movement in Tub Filler After Installation
4 points to check to ensure rigid installation
- The floor flange mounted onto the body. The bolt heads should recess into the countersunk holes.
- Where the flange on the body bolts to the flange on the in floor rough. These surfaces should be flat metal to metal – ensure there are no restrictions from bolts heads etc
- The lower flange on the in floor rough is threaded onto the body of the rough and secured in the correct orientation with 3 set screws from the underside. These are sealed in and there should be absolutely no movement between the lower flange and the in floor rough body
- The floor substrate itself. If this is not concrete, we always recommend at least 4” thick wood
A 1/16” movement at the base will transfer to a ½” movement at the top so everything needs to be very rigid.
