TUB SUPPLY LINES BUYING GUIDE
Supply lines are the water pipes that go from the floor rough-in to the claw foot tub faucet. They need to be chosen to fit both the proper faucet configuration and rough-in through your floor. Your supply lines can be cut on site by your plumber. We strongly recommend that your tub and hardware be on site prior to rough-in. If you have any questions or are purchasing tub supply lines for your new or antique tub, you can call us toll free at 877-868-1369877-868-1369to discuss with a customer service representative.
Straight supply lines (also called Deck-mounted supply lines) are used with deck-mounted faucets. Straight supply lines are roughed-in on the same centers as the faucet drillings on the rim of the claw foot tub, most commonly 7”.
You have your choice of supply lines with or without shut off valves. Rough-in will vary depending on which option you choose.
Freestanding supply lines are used when your tub has no faucet drillings. They are made of thicker brass to support the weight of the claw foot tub faucet and are roughed-in according to the centers of the faucet.
Extensions are offered if additional height is needed.
