Guide to Bathtub Faucets

Installation Types:

Freestanding or Floor Mounted - This type of faucet is for clawfoot tubs and other freestanding bathtubs. It is mounted onto the floor and some styles feature exposed pipes or supply lines. Most floor-mounted faucets require under-floor access for installation, so be sure to check with your plumber to make sure your choice of faucet will work with your set-up.

Deck Mount - The deck refers to the flat surface on the tub rim or a ledge adjacent to the bath. This type of faucet is compatible with many styles of freestanding tubs, and also drop-in or under-mount installations. For most faucet configurations, you'll need to know the center to center measurement of your  faucet hole drilllings or purchase a faucet with variable centers.

Wall Mount - If your bathtub doesn't have any faucet holes, a faucet that mounts on the wall of your bathroom is an excellent choice. A wall-mount faucet is compatible with any style of bathtub that sits adjacent to a bathroom wall. However, when choosing your faucet, you'll need to ensure the spout is long enough to reach from the wall to the bath. 

Tub Wall Mount - This traditional style of tub faucet mounts to holes drilled in the wall of the tub. The faucets are typically mounted on 3-3/8" centers and often feature a gooseneck spout or an antique-style downward spout. 

Handles:

Style: Most bathtub faucets handles are available in lever or cross styles. 

Number: Bathtub faucets are typically available in two different handle configurations. Two-handle bath faucets have one handle to control the hot water and another for the cold. Single handle tub faucets have one handle that controls both flow and temperature. 

Finishes: 

The finish of your faucet can help set the mood for space and customarily coordinates with the other hardware in the room. Our tub faucets are available in a variety of finishes, including Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, Polished Brass, and Oil Rubbed Bronze.
