Reroute water lines to laundry tub: advice/best way?

Hi,

Going to replace the laundry tub with the same model, which is the same size (24" wide, 32" high, 24" deep). As you can see in the picture, the water lines will have to be extended and then configured under the tub to fit into the taps. Other problem: the lines are currently only 6 3/4" away from each other.

Don't have a lot of space to maneuver, so just asking for some advice/best way to accomplish the extension of the lines. Thanks in advance.

You said you are replacing the tub with the same model. Why do you need to relocate the plumbing? Are you intending to install a faucet on the tub's flange/lip?

Yes, I want to install a mixed faucet on the tub itself. Forgot to mention that.

There are several ways to reroute the lines. Pull the tub out just enough to let the pipes go behind then elbow up to the fittings. Or cut the lines at the ceiling area and extend them to the left enough to run down the wall along side of the tub then elbow under it.

@Norm201: thanks for the suggestions. Was thinking of just extending the lines straight down and elbowing the connections but wanted to make sure.

You don't have to route your new lines all the way back under the sink. At the bottom of the brown lines Ray2047 drew install a shutoff then use 16" or 20" flex lines to connect to the new faucet.

@PilotDane, @Ray2047: thanks for the suggestions. Hadn't thought of that. Making this project a priority this weekend and will report back.

Good suggestion Dane. I'd suggest a 90 ell pointing out and a
90 supply valves.
