    I have just plumbed in my new bath but the only fittings are 4 feet which do not screw to the floor. I want to fix the bath so I can tile and also prevent tipping. The bath itself is metal and is fitted into a corner. I thought the best option would be to fit wooden legs in the 3 exterior corners to support it firmly. Does anyone have any correct methods?

    Grip fill round the edge of the bath, and clamp to walls with bits of wood underneath. Then it won't budge. Ever. Silicone is easier to undo without taking the bricks out...

    The only thing I can think of is to screw/plug batten underneath or maybe chop it into the walls slightly and make goods.

    ChrisR method is a better idea.

    Peter - depends on your specific objection. Gripfill IS a bit of a messy pain to use. Evo-stick "Nail and Seal" is much easier and sticks like the proverbial. It's white, but don't leave it showing, in a bathroom, cos mould grows on it.
    A basin stuck to the walls with it will stay there with me sitting on top - no mean feat.
