Hey, I had success also!
Not only did it take me 7 hrs, the plumber was there for 6 hrs. and together
we wrestled a fiberglass tub into an existing tile platform.
The plumbing was all wrong, drain at one end and supply at other.
We had to remove a cabinet to access drain end, and then go outside to cut a
hole and access other end where supply line was.....
Needless to say after 7 bags of mortar mix, and setting the tub into place
on the concrete floor with mortar mix for bedding, it was done!
The concrete floor was 7 inches below tub base!
It was a recently purchased owner built home with this left for the new
Or should I say left for me to figure.
The darn faucets would barely work right for the tub since the tile was
installed prior to faucet install....so, the space was negligible. I had to
relieve the tile area so that the faucet assembly would fit tight to the
I could go on...I am already boring you...

Toilet fixed. One trip to Ace. The only thing I can't figure out is how my

replaced it and put the top back on.
PS: This modest success story will not go to my head. Plumbing remains the
blackest of the black arts.
