Do the rough in stud locations need to be exact?
I am installing this as part of a bath remodel and my current studs are close to the spacing dimensions shown on installation sheet page 4 but are not exact. In one location for the back wall, the existing wall structure may prevent a stud from going in the exact location shown on the instructions.
Is the exact spacing (15 3/8, 14 5/8, 14 5/8, 15 3/8 for example on the back wall) critical for proper installation? (I understand the location for the studs for the door installation and outermost studs where the tub surround ends need to be exact)
Thank you for your question about the Classic 400 Bathtub Wall Set. The location of the studs along the back wall do not need to be exact, but close. These are there as a guide, but you are correct as far as the door support stud and out most studs needing to be exact.

What is the best way to install this surround on an exterior wall that requires a vapor barrier?
What is the best way to install this surround on an exterior wall that requires a vapor barrier? I have an older house that had the vapor barrier installed on the interior side of the exterior wall. Do you still recommend direct to stud installation or should it be installed over greenboard?
Hello Charlie Brown,
Thank you for your question on the Classic 400 60" x 30" Bathtub Wall Set. I will be more than happy to assist you. No, we do not recommend installing over greenboard. This unit must be installed directly to the stud. If you need anything further please contact us by calling 800-355-2721.

Can I get a left side panel only?
When we purchased the surround our idea was to sand and paint the existing bathtub and install the surround on top of the painted bathtub. It turns out that it would be a lot more time saving to purchase another tub instead of refinishing the existing tub. Huge pain to redo because it's porcelain coated. I have already plumbed in the faucet and drilled out the holes for the existing tub but if I get another tub the height will not be the same as the existing tub. Can't find one that is the same height as the original with the house. Is it possible to get a replacement panel?
Hello Hate refinishing existing porceline tub,
Thank you for your question on the Classic 400 60" x 30" Bathtub Wall Set. I will be more than happy to assist you and I do apologize for any inconveniences. We would not recommend installing this over an existing wall surround or on any painted or primed surface. This is a direct-to-stud unit and should be installed directly to the stubs. Unfortunately, the wall surround is sold as a kit and individual pieces cannot be ordered. If you need anything further please contact us by calling 800-355-2721.

I installed the classic 400 surround and for some reason the silicone caulking keeps pulling out from the seems. Please advise
Thank you for your question on the Delta Classic 400 60" x 30" Bathtub Wall Set. I will be happy to help you today.
I am sorry to hear that the silicone caulking is pulling out of the seams. We actually do not recommend using silicone or acrylic latex sealant due to potential adhesion and shrinkage. I would recommend using an advanced kitchen and bath polymer sealant such as:
- DAP® 3.0™ Kitchen, Bath & Plumbing High Performance Sealant
- Red Devil® RD3000™ Advanced Kitchen & Bath Sealant
- ECO-BOND® Kitchen-Bath-Plumbing Adhesive and Sealant
I hope this has answered your question. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or require anything further please feel free to give us a call at 800-345-3358 and we will be happy to assist you in any way that we can.
