My son is renting an apartment. It looks as if the bathtub faucet (spout and valvehandle) are only secured by the grout of the tile and haven't been properly secured at all to the studs. I know that most counties have their own amendments to the International building Code, but what is the bare minimum? Should the faucet be secured by more than just tile grout??
Can someone point me to the code section that would define this?
