a few years ago i had my master bathroom redone. I had the contractor install a kohler drop in soaker tub, which is placed into an alcove with 3 walls and a ceramic tiled in front short wall.
I happened to be there when he was doing the tub, and i watched him place some scraps of cardboard and other debri under the center brace under the middle of the tub. I asked him about it and he said not to worry that it's not necessary to have a wooden support under it. Well it's always, since new been a little creaky as I move around in the tub, lately it's been getting worse and I'd like to fix it.
My issue is that to get under the tub, I'm going to need to get thru the front tile, but i cant find the same exact tile. I suppose I could replace all the tile on that section, it's about 20" high and 60" wide.
My question is... Is there a way to cut into one of the tiles to gain access to underneath the tub? - Do it in such a way that I can reuse the tile? cut along the grout lines?
thanks in advance for any tips
