What are the subfloor requirements for my Styla tub?
The tub installation instructions don't say anything about the subfloor requirements, or setting the tub in mud. I'm getting feedback from professionals that I shouldn't just set the tub on my existing subfloor (even though it is sound). I've been told that the only tubs that don't set in mud are those with foam attached. I see this tub has wooden slats that it sits on. What do you recommend I do? I'm thinking about adding a layer of cement board...
Thank you for your question about the Styla Acrylic with Innovex Technology Bathtub. We recommend installing this unit on a Plywood or cement subfloor.
