Freestanding Tub Faucets – All You Need To Know FAQ’s:
Freestanding tub fillers can definitely add panache to your bathroom and are usually paired with a freestanding tub. Follow the below steps to install a free-standing bathtub faucet on a concrete floor.
Before you begin:
- Measure the height of the valve and review any min-max rough in specifications that are present on the valve
- Ensure that the valve is oriented correctly with respect to the freestanding tub – most freestanding tub fillers can be rotated 360°
- Determine the distance from the freestanding bathtub the faucet will be installed – budget 6 inches.
The Actual Installation:
- Prepare the concrete slab and bring out supply lines. Make sure to find out beforehand if you need 1/2″ or 3/4″ supply lines
- Install the floor mount valve onto the floor using concrete bolts that should be provided with the faucet
- Connect the supply lines to the hot and cold side of the valves
- Open any supply stops or remove any plugs and flush the supply lines thoroughly.
- Install the trim, hose and hand shower.

The height of a freestanding tub filler that you choose to install in your bathroom depends on:
- Personal Taste – heights range from 33″ to 45″
- Space Constraints – if you have a smaller bathroom or some sort of structure above the tub you may want to measure it and purchase a tub filler that will fit.
- Tub Height – most tubs are between 22″ – 28″ tall. The water exit point of the spout of the tub filler should be about 6 inches above the tub. Any higher and there may be some unwanted water splashing on the side of the tub filler.
There are many considerations that one needs to take into account when deciding which freestanding tub filler to purchase. Some of those are provided below:
- Installation Type – Does the tub filler come with a valve or does it come with hoses? The hose version is usually easier to install when there is access below the floor.
- City Code – Does the tub filler have anti-scald rings with the product – some city codes require it and plumbing inspectors may ask for it. If this is not present you may need to purchase an in-line pressure balance valve to meet city code.
- Flow Rate – the tub filler should fill up your tub in a reasonable amount of time. Depending on the volume of your tub (usually 70 – 100 gallons) it may take about 10 minutes to fill up your tub fully. Flow rates for freestanding tub fillers range from 6 GPM to 15 GPM. The higher GPM versions are more expensive. If you can find a 9-10 GPM tub filler you will be very satisfied with the flow rate.
- Size – Heights vary from 33″ – 45″ – make sure that the tub filler you install fits in the area you intend to install it in.
- Surrounding Space – It is better to install the tub filler between the wall and the tub. This prevents people from hanging things on it, pulling on it, or using it as a support to get in and out of the tub. This will ensure the faucet does not become loose over time.
- Hand Shower – Most freestanding tub faucets come with a hand shower. If you are wanting a cleaner look without a hanging hose to distract you consider a faucet without a hand shower. Hand showers do come handy when you want to rinse your tub.
- Certification – Look to purchase a tub filler that is certified by the manufacturer via third party testing laboratories such as IAPMO or CSA. This will ensure the product meets certain quality standards.
