If you are looking to do some redecorating and just want to add some new life to your bathroom you should consider bathroom installation. It will not only give your bathroom a great makeover but it will also save you money and take a lot of hassle out of the project. So if you’re doing a remodel or a whole new bathroom installation you’ll love this quick tutorial.
When it comes to bathtub installation there are a few different options. You can either go with an installation that doesn’t require any pipes work at all, including the plumbing that would be necessary to run the jets, or you can go with a tub surround that includes all of the pipes needed to run the jets. Both of these options will have their advantages and disadvantages depending on your budget and your style of tub.
If you are going with a tub surround, you will need to find someplace to put the surround after the old drain is removed. Most of the time this can be done fairly easily and you won’t need any professional help. You will need a level surface and some good plumbing skills. Most of the time this is done with a drain runner, pipe bending and other types of plumbing tricks. Once you have your surface ready you will need to pre-drill some holes for your new drain. Most of the time this is done with a drain snake, drain drilling tools, a level surface, bolts and some type of caulking or sealer.
With a new installation you will have a much easier time because the plumbing for the jets is already in place. You will need to go with a concrete slab and install your jets as you normally would. The main difference here is that you don’t need to run water through the concrete slab in order to run your jetted bathtub. This saves money and makes the installation process a lot easier and less time consuming. All that has to happen is to set up your jets in their location and put in your plumbing.
Many plumbers are now offering a revolutionary way to install a jetted bathtub with a waterproof liner. It’s called a waterproof liner and it means you don’t need to run any plumbing under your house. It also means that your bathtub can be installed anywhere in your yard. These types of jetted bathtubs are not only more luxurious than traditional ones, but they are also more cost efficient.
This system works by sealing the leaky pipe and caulking around it. You also have to get some special drains to install the new bath drain with. Usually these drains are made out of epoxy resins. These drains are not only a one time job and installation, you will have them for quite some time. So if you do decide to go with this option, make sure that you get the sealant from the same company that you bought the bath drain from.
