How much weight can an upstairs bathtub hold?
Also, is there a weight limit on bathtubs?
A bathtub, full of water with an occupant, can be one of the heaviest things in the house. For this reason the tub may require additional support, especially for upper tubs placed on flowers above ground level in the home. Bathtubs, plus the water and occupant, can weigh over 1,000 pounds.
Also question is, how much weight can a second floor room hold?
The load capacity of a second floor in a home is regulated at 40 lbs. per square foot. For bedrooms, the capacity is 30 lbs. per square foot.
Domestic floors are rated to at least 1.5kN/m2 for distributed loads. That's about 150kg for every square metre of floor area, or a 24 stone person standing on every square metre of floor. Also note that is what the floor is rated to carry safely.
