Planning to install your own bathroom? Here’s a guide on how to fit a bath in your new bathroom renovation. We do always recommend using a professional bathroom fitter to ensure it is plumbed correctly.
This bath installation guide will look at fitting a straight bath which is one of the more common types of baths, often made from acrylic.
You will need…
· Hack saw
· Drill with a hole cutter
· Pipe cutter
· Sealant and gun
· Spirit level
· Set of screwdrivers
· Tape measure
Checking your new bath
As soon as your bath is delivered open up the packaging and check it for damage or faults. The sooner you report these to us the quicker we can to arrange repairs or replacements. Your bath should come with: the bath tub itself, the feet, wall brackets and handles if provided. Depending on your order you may need to purchase bath waste and taps. Our bathroom sales team can help with this.
Estimated time to fit a new bath: 1 day
Fitting a Bath
· Many bathroom fitters will fit a wooden frame to support the bath and stop it from flexing when occupied. It’s better in the long term and means a higher quality finish.
· Fit your bath BEFORE tiling the bathroom walls. This ensures a watertight seal. There are some exceptions to this, such as when the wall behind the bath tub is exposed.
· Make sure your bathroom fitter fills the bath tub with water to make sure it doesn’t bend or pull away from the wall.
