Well, as you can see from the following picture that our tub was replaced and only the front tiles had to be replaced. However...now the problem became the faucet. Our old faucet worked fine but for some reason it was replaced. We could only get freezing cold water or burning hot water - nothing in between. We had to use our spaghetti pot to mix the water together to get temperate water. This went on for several days while we waited for the plumber to come back.
Next, we had an upside down faucet (a bidet if you will). It did work for giving us the right temperature water .
