**Step: Test whether the water leaks.

Before placing the bathtub, install the water fittings and close the water for 24 hours to see if the bathtub leaks. Pay special attention to the upper overflow. It is difficult to keep the water closed for 24 hours. Pour two buckets of water outside the bathroom and try to drain the water in the installed bathtub. This is more convenient for operation.

When it came to the actual installation, the bathtub was directly lifted into the bathroom and placed in the position of the water. Because the mixing position of the faucet when changing the water is just the width of the bathtub, if the size of the bathtub is The mixing water is not just right, so pay attention to the center point of the bathtub should be facing the center point of the mixing water, otherwise it will be ugly after the mixing faucet is installed in the future.

After the bathtub is lifted into the bathroom, start to install the water and water accessories, fill the bathtub with water, turn off the water, and check for leaks. When the water flows over the upper overflow, the water in the bathtub will flow from the overflow. When I was out, I was lying on the ground and reaching under the bathtub to touch the back of the overflowing water to see if there was any water leaking from here. After the overflow test passed, I then checked the tightness of the water. I chose to stand still to observe the tightness of the water. There was no problem at the beginning. After about 10 minutes, there was a few seconds in the quiet bathroom. There was a gurgling sound of water bubbling, the water was not installed and airtight, and there was leakage, so I decided to drain the water and reinstall it.

This time I found a problem. The copper plumbing pipe that was blistering originally had a sand hole in a certain part. We tossed it several times and leaked it. Fortunately, I carried the bathtub into the bathroom from the beginning. I was not afraid of the waste of water during the water discharge experiment. It was also a full tank of water. Under pressure, the trachoma was squeezed so that it would leak. If it is only a small amount If the water is not under such a high pressure, it will not leak at this time. If you are a skilled hydraulic worker, you may be very impatient with my test. Maybe this problem will not be discovered at that time? On the other hand, it also proves from the side that the quality of the hardware is indeed average, and it is better to buy the hardware.

It should be noted that: Whether the center point of the width of the bathtub is aligned with the center point of the faucet. This should be considered when you first change the water. The width of the bathtub is 700, 750, or 800? Once the water is changed and the size of the mixed water is determined, try to buy a bathtub according to this, otherwise It will be difficult to change the size of the mixed water distance from the wall later.

Step 2: Leveling the bathtub.

When placing the bathtub, make sure that the other end of the drain is slightly higher than the end of the drain, so that the sewage will not be discharged smoothly in the future. This depends on the situation. The bathtub was originally suggested by Xiao Gong. It was observed that the bottom of the bathtub had a slope for drainage. The four sides of the bathtub were leveled with a spirit level and tested with water. As expected, the water drained quickly. The bathtub visually maintains a horizontal and beautiful appearance without affecting the drainage effect

Step 3: Filling sand.

Although the cast iron bathtub is strong, its thermal conductivity is very fast. You should use medium river sand to lay down and smash the bottom of the bathtub firmly. Bricklayers also recommend using foam. Considering that foam is not as fluid as river sand, it is suitable to fill all gaps. In the process of filling river sand, how to prevent sand from leaking into the sewer is a problem to be solved.

After all the installation work is completed, the water will be tested again (this step is mainly to ensure that the moving bathtub does not cause the water to leak). After confirming that it is correct, wait for the bricklayer to build the skirt.

Step 4: Leave the inspection port.

There is a hole with a height of 300mm and a width of 400mm at the drain. Cut a hole according to the size, and cut the board (thickness 40㎜) that has been water-proof and anti-corrosion treatment according to the size, and calculate it on the board. Count and Arrange the Bricks Use 903 construction glue to stick the bricks on the board. The edges of the protruding bricks are smeared with sealant and inlaid on the box body

This is to facilitate the maintenance of the bathtub drainage system in the future. When building the bathtub skirt, for aesthetic considerations, all the height of 600 is reserved, and other materials such as mosaics are discarded. The bathtub skirt uses the same bricks as the lower part of the wall tiles. When this is done, the lower wall tiles, floor tiles, and bathtub skirts are all made of One color and one material are very beautiful.

Step five: tiling

The tiling of the bathtub skirt does not need to be scratched. Lay a red brick table, put a layer of cement mortar on the surface, and wait two It’s cumbersome to tiling in the next day. Because the ground has a slope and the bathtub is flat, each large brick must be polished to a different size. You can’t polish a lot at one time. It’s easy to polish and you have to repeat it. mill. The upper fortress of the brick is tucked under the round edge of the bathtub so that it does not form a positive angle.
