How to Replace a Shower/Tub Combo

Apr 04, 2022

A worker finishes a bathtub remodel.If you own a home, there’s a good chance that at least one of the bathrooms in that home features a shower/tub combo. It’s not difficult to imagine why this particular type of bathing fixture is so popular—after all, they offer maximum versatility and are a great option for households with young children or adults of all ages. However, depending on the style, material, and age of your shower/tub combination, it may be time to replace it. If you’re noticing any of the following signs, a bathtub replacement should surely be in your future:

  • Stains that are difficult to remove
  • Fading or discoloration
  • Chipping or cracking
  • An outdated appearance

If any of the signs above sound all too familiar to you, your next move is figuring out how to replace your shower/tub combo. We’ve laid out what you need to know below, as well as how you can get the best results for your replacement with help from Jacuzzi Bath Remodel.

Before You Begin

Before you can go about actually replacing your current bathtub/shower combo, you’ll need to select the new fixture you’ll be replacing it with. There are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind here, including:

  • Are you replacing it with another bathtub/shower combo, or would you prefer a jetted bathtub, walk-in shower, or other option?
  • What material is best for your new bathtub or shower?
  • What aesthetic and functional elements would you like included?

Think about how you answered each of those questions when choosing your new bathtub or shower. You’ll also need to measure your current bathtub alcove and think about whether or not you have a corner tub or another style, as the drain location will matter during the replacement process.

The Bathtub Replacement Process

The actual replacement process starts with turning off the water supply to the tub, then the drain flange and overflow cover will need to be disconnected before the drain assembly can be disconnected as well. After that, the tub can be separated from the wall and removed so that the new bathtub or shower can be installed in its place. Finally, the stringer can be installed, the overflow drain assembly attached, and the drain connected before the new tub can be secured and finished.

Each of these steps requires a great level of skill and attention to detail as well as specific tools to complete properly. When in doubt, partnering with a reliable bathroom remodeling company is always best to reduce the problems that can happen during the replacement process.
