Question

access panel don't match

Asked by

New York
about EverClean 5 ft. x 32 in. Left Drain Whirlpool Tub in White on
October 13, 2014
After I dry fitted the tub in the alcove, I noticed that the access panel has a different tone and sheen vs the rest of the tub. Does anyone else have the same issue?
If it's just my tub then I will have to go back to home depot to see if they can exchange the panel. If other people have the same problem, then I guess I'll have to live with it.

Also, when I leveled the tub on the stringers, the apron is not vertical. It tilts back at an angle of about 5 degrees. It is noticable when i take a few steps back an compare it with the grout line (which are plumb). Anyone notice the same issue with they tiub? Thanks for your help in advance.

My access panel was also slightly different. I emailed American Standard and they sent me a new one, no hassles, no cost. This one is a much better match, and I'm happy with it.

I purchased this tub recently at HD but after install i noticed it only allows for a 4 inch centerset faucet which are very small and will require long time to fill the tub.

Is there a recommended 4 inch faucet ?

What are other options besides a 4 inch faucet for water source ?

If 8 inch option exists, how do you close the existing holes on the tub ?

Question

Steps to Getting the Tub Functional?

Asked by
Missmur
about EverClean 5 ft. x 32 in. Left Drain Whirlpool Tub in White on
September 21, 2015
I'm thinking of replacing my current regular tub fixture for this one. That being said, I'm not very familiar with any home improvement project, so I actually do need a step by step to know what I need to do if I get this product and want to use it in my home. From reading the q/a, I think I've gathered:

This will require two additional products: a drainer and a heater? Or does it still function without those? If it is required what model numbers are compatible?

I'm also a little confused about the lifetime guarantee for parts and in home labor. I'm assuming that it does not include installation, but only for labor/parts required after the unit has been installed. The reason I am confused by this is: if I hire someone or DIY to replace my old tub and install this new one and somehow the person makes a mistake, the warranty covers it? If so, why wouldn't they have some form of installation plan to make sure the tub is properly installed in the first place? Do they have a partner in place and is there a discount if you use them for installation?

Thanks!

The tub does not come with a drain kit, so you will be required to purchase it separately. You can find it here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/American-Standard-Deep-Soak-Drain-1599-500-020/100677630
Internet #100677630 Store SKU # 553243

The specifications mention that the heater is optional, however, every review I've read about this product has mentioned that the purchaser also bought the heater and was very glad they did. Everyone has highly recommended getting the heater. That's what I did as well, and like the others, I'm glad I did that. I can take a long soak in this jetted tub, and the water stays the perfect temperature. There's a removable section of pipe that comes with the tub, and is held in place with some large compression fittings. You simply remove that section and replace it with the heater. On my tub, one of the compression fittings on the removable section was cracked, causing the tub to leak. By replacing it with the heater (which I was going to put in anyway), the problem was solved, because the heater has it's own compression fittings.

The heater can be found here:
http://www.homedepot.com/p/American-Standard-Safe-T-Heater-9075-120/100057101
Internet # 100057101

This tub will require TWO dedicated 15amp circuits, each with a GFCI circuit breaker. (One for the pump motor, and one for the heater) These special breakers would usually be installed in your circuit breaker panel. This means running two lines from the breaker panel to the tub. It might mean crawling through your attic or basement. Definitely hire this out to a qualified electrician if you have no electrical wiring experience. Remember, you're dealing with electricity near water, and for obvious reasons the electrical must be done right, and must be in compliance with code.

While the tub does have a removable panel in the front, it really doesn't provide enough room to access everything. It provides decent access to where the heater is, but does not provide very good access to the pump. For that reason, you will need to create an access area on wall where the foot of the tub (where the pump is located, the wall opposite the water valve) is. This would be a square or rectangular opening you would create in the wall during the framing process. The opening would need to be approximately 2 feet by 2 feet, and would be accessed from the room on the other side of this wall. If I'm not mistaken, this access area is a requirement for home warranty service, otherwise, if they needed to replace the pump, they'd probably have to cut a hole in the wall to get to it, because it can't be easily accessed from the front apron panel.

As for the actual installation of the tub, I'm sure there are plumbing companies who could install it for you if you don't feel qualified to do it. If you decide to hire it out, make sure whomever does it is licensed and certified. Check their references.

If you wish to tackle the installation yourself, there are many tutorials on Youtube which show you how to install a tub.

I installed mine myself. The hardest part for me was getting the old tub out of there. It was a cast iron tub which weighed over 500 pounds. Yikes! We had to smash it into pieces with a sledge hammer to get it out of there. Very messy (and loud!) process. The actual install process for the new tub wasn't too bad. Setting the tub in mortar was a bit challenging. It involved dumping several large dollops of mortar on the floor where the tub would go, and then setting the tub in place on top of it, pressing down so that the tub was sitting in the mortar. I wouldn't say this was extremely difficult, but it is a bit of a messy job, and buckets of mortar aren't exactly lightweight. Everything else about the installation was fairly simple, I thought. Hope this helps.
