A floor-mount faucet (also called a tub filler) adds a touch of sophistication to a freestanding or clawfoot bathtub and creates an elegant design statement.
This project describes how to install a floor-mount faucet once the rough plumbing is in place beneath the floor. The advantage of a freestanding installation is that the work area is unrestricted since the faucet pipe is exposed (no walls, access panels, etc.). The project is simple and straightforward. No soldering is involved; however, it may be necessary to reinforce the floor, requiring basic carpentry skills.
