Bath Removal & Refix

In this section we will give you tips on firstly how to remove and then reinstall your bath. As the bath is big and in some cases heavy we advise that two people do the lifting of the bath.

Removal

 

  • Remove bath panel.

 

  • Turn off the water to both the cold and hot taps.

 

  • Drain the pipework to the taps.

 

  • Place a container under the waste trap to catch any leaking water then disconnect the waste from the bath.

 

  • Repeat this on the tap connectors.

 

  • Undo screws holding the bath in place - located in the feet, bracket even directly through the bath itself sometimes.

 

  • With help remove the bath.

Tips

 

If you are not selling or re-using the bath it maybe a good idea to carefully break it up into smaller parts, making it easier to carry.

 

Check the condition of the floor now the bath is out of the way. If the bath has been letting water to get onto the flooring it may cause it to rot. These conditions also attract insects and bugs which can also damage the floor boards.

 

Make sure you take off any waste fittings or taps if you intend to reuse them.

Refix

 

  • With help reposition the bath back in its spot.

 

  • Refix the feet (put screws back in) and any brackets holding the bath in place that you unscrewed earlier.

 

  • Reconect waste and tap connectors.

 

  • Fill and check for leaks.

 

  • Replace the bath panel.
