The water only has to be off for about a day.
Please note this is a best case scenario. As with all renovation projects, you never know what you will find when you open the walls. It is fairly common to open the wall in the shower area and find mould. That may take another day to treat, but it can depend on how much damage is done to any nearby studs.
The straightness of the construction can also add to the project time, as the walls need to be flat for tile to lie smoothly. If you have an older home with lathe and plaster construction, that tends to add time. By the way, if you’ve never had scald prevention valves installed, it would be a great idea to do this while you’re renovating.
If you’re getting a nice spa bathtub with jets, lights or other electrically-powered features, an electrician will need to install a GFI (ground fault interrupt) circuit for safety. GFIs shut down to prevent shocks should water somehow get into contact with the power supply – you often see GFI outlets next to the sink.
Part of the fun of replacing a bathtub is getting the new one into the home and up or down stairs. The old one needs to be removed as well. This can include the following:
There may need to be some removals in the bathroom itself in order to get the tub into place. Particularly in small bathrooms, we often have to temporarily remove the toilet, and we many need to do the same for the vanity as well.
Tubs have to placed carefully to make sure they’re at the right level to ensure all the water drains effectively.
You also need to make sure they’re stable. If the tub rocks even a little when you’re getting in and out, it’s not only unsafe but can strain the plumbing connections and cause leaks.
Installers also need to make sure the pipes are not strained when connecting them to the tub. There can be no mashing the tub on top of the drain pipe, or pushing the pipe back and forth in order to get it into the right place. That will definitely lead to leaks – often deep within the walls where the next connection is located.
Sound can also be an issue. A well-supported tub will have the least amount of squeak from flexation of the bottom if you’re showering and walking back and forth.
