As much preparation as possible is advisable before starting to avoid having the water cut off for too long. So as many fittings should be assembled as is possible before the old bath is removed.
If the position of the bath is to be different to the old one then the water supply and waste pipes will have to be extended to the new position.
Fit the plug hole outlet by smearing mastic filler round the sink outlet hole then, pass the outlet through the hole in the bath. Fix in place with the supplied nut. The plug hole outlet should have an inlet on the side for the overflow pipe.
The end of the flexible overflow pipe should be fitted to the overflow outlet. Then screw it to the overflow face which should be fitted inside the bath. Again take care to use all of the supplied washers.
Connect the trap to the bottom of the waste outlet on the bath by winding the thread of the waste outlet with PTFE tape or with silicone mastic and then screw on the trap to the outlet. Connect the bottom of the overflow tube in a similar way.
The bath is now ready to be fitted in its’ final position.
Switch on the water supply and check all joints for leaks and tighten them if necessary. Fill the bath and check the overflow outlet and the normal outlet also for leaks.
Finally fix the bath panelling as described in the manufacturers instructions.
