Replacement bath

Postby GARYF » Wed Aug 29, 2007 11:13 pm

Hi everybody,

When replacing a bath, if i want the new unit to have the taps and waste at the opposite end to the original, will i run into problems getting the correct fall on the waste or is there a easy way around this?

Many thanks in advance,

Simply Build It

Most bath's (apart from the roll top free standing type) have adjustable legs, so you can adjust the height of the bath, this will allow you to increase the fall on the waste pipe.

Where does the pipe go, outside ? or into the soil stack ?
If it goes outside can you not lower the hole in the wall where the waste pipes goes through to outside ?
