Hey DIYers! You guys are a talented bunch. You’re good at fixing, installing, and renovating pretty much anything around the house. So, we thought we’d provide some tips just in case you’re having some trouble hooking up the hot and cold water lines when installing your brand new bathtub.
Although many homeowners are more than capable of performing small plumbing fixes, I really encourage anyone who is installing one of our tubs to call in a professional plumber.
Hot and cold water valves are sometimes marked – blue for cold and red for hot. In that case, it’s a fairly simple matter of matching the hot water valve to the hot water connector on the bathtub, then doing the same with the cold.
However, in some cases, the valves are not clearly marked. During installation, matching up the right valve to the corresponding tap on the bathtub is vital. If the water lines are connected incorrectly, you might turn on the cold water tap only to have hot water rush out. Unless you have experience working with plumbing, we really encourage you to call in a professional contractor to handle the whole installation.
