We are remodeling our bathroom and would like to install a second-hand claw foot tub. Has anyone done this? Any advice or warnings before we delve into the project? Would we be OK just having a plumber hook it up? Any tips are appreciated!!

Check you local plumbing codes. If the original faucet is the type where the spout is below the rim of the tub, you may have to replace it with one that sits up high for backflow protection.

Yes, a plumber should be able to do this. M only comment is make sure that when you place it it is easy to clean around it. Too close to the wall you can't get in there. We had a house that they did this and I was forever trying to figure out how to get behind there.
