    As above, the feet that have come with my bath have no holes so can't screw them to the floor.
    Shall I bin them and get some others or is it not necessary to screw them down?

    Not necessary, just make sure the bath is well fixed to the wall.

    Presumably the feet will be hidden by a panel?
    Get a small bit of thick ply or hardwood.
    Drill a suitable hole all the way through, thread the leg through, recheck levels, secure the wood
    Or
    After drilling the wood, cut it in half and secure to the floor - surrounding the leg

    Why don't you just drill an 1/8th part hole through the plastic foot and bang a screw through it into the floor?

    Dad's house built 1954, in 2004 came to remove bath panels. The iron bath was sitting on bricks, been like that 50 years, was still like that in 2019 when house sold.
