    Hi, I'm about to move into a new house that only has a shower and I was wondering if it would be possible to put in a free standing bath that I would fill using the shower and then just empty the same way as the shower would? Any advice please.
    Thanks
    Sarah

    If you were wanting to fill a bath by using the shower then you'd be old before it was full....however if you want to stand in a bath rather than a shower tray then I guess you could, so long as you rigged up a shower curtain etc. The drain is still there, after all.
    I'm not really sure what you mean?
    Cheers John :)

    It's to actually take a bath, I have a young baby and like to share a bath with him and the idea of sharing a shower isn't as good. I hadn't thought about the speed of filling a bath with a shower- damm, any more good ideas?

    Are you replacing the existing shower tray/cubicle with the bath? Probably wouldnt be a major job to connect water supplies to the new bath, waste is already there for the existing shower.

    I don't suppose the existing shower is electric..... :eek:
    If its fed by combi or tank then a conversion is certainly possible.
