Hole for Cistern Push Button for Roper and Rhodes Pan and Concealed Cistern

Postby Sophie'smum » Thu Oct 01, 2015 12:55 pm

We have bought a Roper Rhodes pan and concealed cistern. The bathroom is in a loft conversion. The cistern is therefore behind a wall in the loft are not a mdf box. Wall in bathroom tiled.

Instructions, cut a 63mm hole for the push button. OK, try finding a hole saw that will cut tiles at that diameter? Why not cut slightly bigger? Because the fools that designed it have made the cosmetic chromed button just 70 mm so there is at best a 3 mm lip around the hole. Why? I asked Roper Rhodes, because they are designed for boxed in mdf or units. NO they should be designed for all possible applications.

The old tiles don't matter but once the new ones go on it matters a great deal.

What do I do now? My last post about weights of tiles seems to have been viewed many times but never answered so I am hoping for advice this time please.
