The time needed to fit your new bathtub will depend on the type of bathtub you're going for. If you have an enclosed bathtub that requires tiling then this would take little longer. First, it has to be fitted and plumbed in and then boxed in.
If you have a freestanding bathtub being installed it still has to be plumbed in and then sealed to the tiled floor in your bathroom. A clawfoot bath, however, sits on its own legs and does not get the seal to the floor. Clawfoot bathtub store vintage style bathtubs still have to be plumbed in the floor drain. It would be fair to assume that if you allow one day to have your new bathtub fitted it could easily be managed. However, a boxed-in style of bath could take a little longer given the tiling process.
