First fix Mixer Shower Before Plastering

Postby rdavies86 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 10:23 am

Looking for best way to first fix shower with 150mm centres prior to plastering. Wall is lath and plaster but will be getting boarded over.

I have seen the easy fix kits for on top of plaster/tiles but what do I do before this.

Leave pipes sticking out in rough position and sort centres after plastering is done?

Simply Build It

You have to be careful though. You don't want to restrict the centres from moving at all. I usually fix the mixers then remove them and do whatever I need to do with the wall. It is easier when you have your mixer position sorted out in advance. You have to keep in mind the amount of plaster that you are applying and the leverage you will have afterwards, in case you need to let some advance from the pipes.
