Fitting a over-bath shower unit


Postby Sherpa Jim » Mon Jan 25, 2010 9:04 pm

I have been advised to block up my bathroom window to allow the fitting of a over-bath shower unit, as this is the only place it can be sited, but I am concerned that doing so will increase the amount of condensation in the room, which is a very small bathroom. Does anyone have any thoughts on this idea?

Blocking up the only external means of ventilation will increase the condensation in any bathroom.

To comply with regulations and remove the possibility of mould etc have a high capacity timed fan fitted in the ceiling above the shower unit.

Is an ideal solution.

Thanks for the info' plumbob, but unsure if we should block up the window. Pity because we have already purchased the shower mixer to connect to our Combi Boiler system. Sorry for the delay in thanking you :D

Blocking up the only window should not be taken lightly, but from the regulation point of view as long as ventilation is available such as a timer fan then it is permissible.

I see bathrooms without a window from time to time. Often they are in small houses or en-suites that have been added later. They are dark and usually have left over odours, but if there is no alternative.....

I had this done by Aspect Maintenance - Google "allaspectsltd.co.uk" who were quick and helpful, and with good rates. Maybe check them out :)
