Just got a new tub installed and it started creaking near the drain. Contractor spray foamed from a cavity through the closet but didn't seem to help. Going to give a few hours to cure and see if anything changed but any other ideas? I am not sure opening up the ceiling underneath and putting in more nails would do anything but not sure. I appreciate the advice.
I don't think there is any concrete
Any way of fixing it from underneath (via ceiling main floor) by shimming or reinforcing joists?
Hi, Plastic and Fiberglass bathtubs may develop cracks around the drain as result of age or improper support at the underside of the Tub.You have two choices for the system used to perform the repair .The first employs a body filler, similar that used on cars and boats, along with a gel coat that adds the shine to the finish.The other type is a two part epoxy system that self mixes the filler. Many product lines come in a range of tones to match standard tub colors, such as White, light, yellow and tan.
Hey, I've been in the same situation before. We attempted numerous solutions to the problem but were unsuccessful. We also tried spray form, but it didn't work because it wasn't waterproof. Finally, we contacted our housing contractor, who advised us to reach a plumber. Came and replaced our tub. Then resolved the problem. So it's best if you replace it.
Thanks but the issue was resolved. It has legs so it is braced. Just got some extra bracing in one corner which was rubbing slightly and it is fixed now.
