Floor support for large tank?


Recommended Posts

Finally crawled under the house and totally miss-remembered what was there. what I have is 2x8 subfloor with 4x6 cross beams and 4x4posts with two perfectly centered, perpendicular to where the tank will go. I thought I had 2x10 or 2x12 running parallel to the tank... do I need to reinforce at all? If so, how?

I figure the "bathtub" will weigh a little over a ton, spread over 2ftx8ft...

I did under mine with 4x4s on pyramid blocks (I think that's what their called, made for decks and such). If I did it again, house jacks would have been easier.


And my house has TGIs that run parallel with the tank so that's mostly why I did it.
