Description

Many traditional baths come with feet that have an adjustable pad underneath which had a bolt attached that fixes into the foot casting and can be used to raise the foot up and down. Usually these baths can be fixed to the floor by applying silicon to the bottom of these pads and cementing the bath to the floor like this. Use the technique discussed in the last bullet point, i.e. plenty of silicon and weigh the bath down with water or something else whilst the silicon is setting. Using a silicone sealant is advised when fitting a pop-up bath waste to avoid overtightening it and hindering the pop-up feature. Does a bath waste need a trap?

Do you need an exposed waste kit (see above)? Yes - Use Adjustable Pipe Shrouds to cover the water feeds. To match your freestanding bath we have a bath waste kit to suit, they come with stand pipes, pipe shrouds and an exposed waste all in one kit. Bath Pop Up Waste Hopefully, you have another person helping you at this point. If so, ask them to help you line up the overflow tube with the overflow opening on your bath. You also need to make sure the horizontal drain arm lines up with the drain opening on the bottom of your tub.More often used in free standing bathtubs, an invisible overflow removes the need for a classic overflow, and instead utilises a tastefully hidden mechanism. At once elegant and minimal, they are a popular choice for period and traditional bathrooms. Exposed Bath Pop Up Once the current drain fittings are removed, unscrew the cover plate that sits on the inside of the top of your tub (the bit where excess water flows through). This should easily come away with a little elbow grease. Is you tap a traditional one either with no hand held shower or with one that rests over the top of the tap on a 'telephone style' rest? - Use 660mm or 700mm standpipes (see below**) A bath is an investment and not the kind of change you make often. You will spend a significant amount of time in or looking at your bath as you go about your daily routine, and so it is important to consider any changes or updates to this area carefully.

Here are some key terms you should be familiar with when you are on the look out for a stylish new Bath Waste Kit to finish your bathtub.. Overflow Bath Wastes may not be the first thing to jump into your mind when you set about designing a bathroom and planning your decor, however, it can be well worth the time it takes to think about your options and choose one thatfits your style and functional needs. Bath Waste Kit (with overflow pipe) - this is all the fittings you see inside the bath as well as the overflow pipe. The fittings inside the bath consist of the plug & chain or popup & control as well as the overflow grill. The overflow pipe is on the outside of the bath, it carries water that goes through the overflow down and then under the bath where it joins up with the pipe that comes down from where the plug hole is. The different kinds of waste are described in more detail below. The most popular bath waste is the pop up. To close the plug simply turn the overflow, and repeat the process to open and drain your bath. This is particularly good as your hands stay dry. Bath Plug and WasteBath wastes come in various makes, models and sizes, depending on the type of bath design you have. Our guide takes you through replacing a simple design that you can adapt for all types of bath waste components. Should you use silicone when fitting a bath waste? Depending on the style of bath that you choose for your bathroom we will have a bath waste to complement it perfectly. Chain Waste - this is the traditional chain and plug we all know and love. The ones we sell are all what are known as stowaway or retainer chain wastes, these have a kind of recessed overflow, and when the plug is not in use it will fit snugly into it, neatly out of the way. This is usually the best choice for a traditional style bathroom. Now it’s time to prepare your bath for its new waste and overflow components. At this point, it’s worth test-fitting the items and cutting the kit to size if it doesn’t fit perfectly. It’s best to do this before securing everything in place and realising you have to remove or redo it.

Note: Slip fittings make this step infinitely easier as you only need to tighten everything to secure it together. How to fit a flexible bath waste pipe With free standing bathtubs, your plumbing becomes an accessory. Free standing taps with curving, graceful lines, Victorian-inspired faucets and chrome-finish Exposed Bath Wastes add authenticity to a Period-style bath tub.If you are unsure what the term Bath Waste means; it is basically the plumbing that provides your water with somewhere to go once it flows down into your plug hole. In other words, it's an essential part to ensure the bath waste can escape from the bathtub to the drainage system. This can include the plug, any parts behind the bathtub, and the overflow system. The first thing you need to do is get access to your existing tub. This job is much easier for baths you haven’t yet installed. So, depending on the type of tub and fittings you have, this will either be a simple or difficult step. For example, freestanding tubs or those with slip fittings will make your life easier. The tried and test plug & chain waste is still the households favourite and is an efficient system but the use of pop-up bath wastes and push button bath wastes are on the rise.

An Exposed Waste sits outside the freestanding bath; a functional yet attractive piece of metalwork that adds to the elegant crafted lookof a traditional bathroom. Your Bath - Your Choice This is a combined unit of a Waste Kit and a Bath Filler. Providing your bath with an even more modern look, these Integrated Bath Filler Waste Kits give you a side-fill function that removes the need for a traditional spout or bath filler. Instead, a (usually chrome) overflow unit doubles up as both bath filler and overflow - a clean, sharp look that is great for contemporary bathrooms. Invisible Overflow and Waste In general the standpipes should be at least as high as the point on the bath over which the taps must reach, after this a higher tap will look more imposing so if you want to show off the taps you might opt for the higher standpipe.It’s time to connect the drain fitting. To do so, apply some plumber’s gold to the rim (flange) of the drain opening in your tub. Then, from underneath the tub, place the rubber washer around the drain tailpiece before slipping the tailpiece through the opening. Fitting a bath waste trap is a fiddly job that usually requires you to replace the entire bath waste assembly. To do this, follow our above step-by-step guide or call in a professional.
