 Separation Anxiety
Author: mubadub (AL)

Our house is 7 years old and the tub has had a small crack at the caulk line for a couple
If weeks but today the crack widened significantly. I took pics but can't seem to get them to post. Any ideas what could be the problem? The floor around the tub seems perfectly fine. No creaks or movement.

Floors and walls move relative to each other, especially with extreme temperatures like we are experiencing now. Also, who knows how well the tub was framed in and how well supported it is.

My thoughts exactly I think the framing must be in-adequate.

What would you recommend to fix it?

if you have access to under the tub (thru a side or back wall) spray some expanding foam under the base of the tub. get a good amount under there and it may pick the tub up the fraction of an inch you need. if not it will at least make it rock solid so it shouldn't sink any more.
