- Decide how high you want the bath above your floor.
- Measure and make markings on the wall with a pencil.
- It is recommended that it should be at least 450mm above the floor.
- Once you have marked the height, securely fasten support battens (a long flat strip of squared timber or metal used to hold something in place or as a fastening against a wall) against the back and sidewall.
- Make sure the battens are leveled horizontally.
- Position your new bath with the backside resting on the battens.
- Check that the bath is perfectly level again by using your spirit level.
- Make sure area under the bath is clear of dirt and tools.
- Take care not to damage bath exterior during positioning.
- Place three equally spaced rows of bricks, with ample cement, under the reinforcing ribs of the bath.
- This will support the underside and full weight of the bath.
- Check that the first row of bricks is as close as possible to the waste fitting.
- Check that the openings and sides are now level with the ends of the battens placed.
- Install your taps, waste pipe and plumbing fittings, if you have not already done so.
- The outside of the frame is often tiled with tiles or mosaic to create a cohesive bathroom design.
- Make sure to leave an access area or door if you are installing a whirlpool tub (for future repairs and maintenance).
- You can finish the frame with any materials that work with your requirement.
