Is my new bathtub too heavy for a second floor bathroom?
November 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have a new 32" Kohler cast iron tub, Bellwether model that we are about to install in our second floor bathroom. It is 300 lbs. hoping it's not too heavy for the flooring. Should we put some kind of reinforcement in the flooring? It's been sitting upstairs and hasn't fallen through the ceiling yet but a little nervous, by the time you add water could it be too heavy?
