Hi All.

I have a new bath to fit, im fine with the pipework, taps, wastes etc.

However the bath i have bought is

The bath comes with 2 supports that are supposed to fasten to the base of the bath, however the base of the bath is acrylic/fibre glass.

There are areas where the acrylic is thicker, do i screw the bath feet into this or do i need cut some board? Also the feet only secure to the base of the bath, should i put extra support in? If so what extra support is required. Im fitting the bath into an alcove

Ive just heard back from the supplying company and they say that the baseboard is encapsulated in the bath.... thought as much.

However, its an 1800mm bath, at what distances would it be best to fit the supporting feet?

No instructions really, well the ones that come with it are nothing to do with the bath. and definatly dont say where the feet go.

Ive rung the company and they responded with "any professional plummer should be able to fit it"


a) im not a professional plummer
b) I bought it to fit myself not pay someone to do it (I dont get the same satisfaction paying someone to do it)

So from experience could anyone suggest how i should space the bath feet?

Thanks, thats great info!!!!

Just what i needed, might have a look on the website for other fittings, fortunatly my shower is a TC so that should have good instructions.
