Offset Supplies Installation 

Offset Supplies Installation :

(Part Numbers 480584, 401823, 401824)

Clawfoot Alley recommends that you hire a qualified plumber to install the components of your clawfoot tub. This is the best way to ensure correct, professional installation.

These supply lines are the most popular for tub faucets with 3 3/8" centers. The supply line is bent and sloped slightly out from the faucet. At the floor, the plumbing should be roughed in at 8" on centers and the faucet should be 3 3/8" on centers.

All supply lines should be installed by a qualified, licensed plumber.

These lines can not be bent very much to vary the spread at the floor. If you have plumbing roughed in on unusual centers, it is suggested to either change the plumbing rough in or use tub ells with braided water flex lines. Rough in 1/2" IPS pipe 1/2" above the finished floor or 1 1/2" above the finished floor if using shut-off valves.


The supply lines can be easily cut with a tubing cutter to the correct length for installation. For best results use a sharp blade. Avoid over tightening all connections. Snug the nuts by hand and then using a pipe wrench, tighten 1/4 turn. Check for leaks. Tighten 1/8 of a turn until leaks stop. Cast brass is one of the best materials known for plumbing pipes and valves, however it will crack or split if over tightened. Use Teflon tape on all threaded connections.
