Exposed Overflow and pipework for reclaimed Victorian bath

Postby ReadySteadyEco » Tue Oct 05, 2010 5:17 pm

Hello, I'm struggling to find A) a rigid chrome waste and overflow pipe (I don't want to use a flexible overflow/ waste) that I can retro fit onto a restored Victorian cast iron bath and B) figure out how the brass tap pipework can be hidden. We have a tiled floor with capped 22mm brass pipe work near the underside of the bath more or less vertically beneath the tap holes.

As regards A), the overflow bath hole is 4.5cm and the waste hole is 6cm in diameter; there is an approximate drop of 37cm between the centre of the overflow and the waste. For B), the pipe work may have to be bent slightly to accommodate the positioning of the tap down pipes and the 22mm pipe studs in the floor (now you start to understand why I can't just use chrome shrouds - I thought you liked a challenge?).

Any advice/ guidance would be great.
