The bathtub has gradually become a single item that every family likes to purchase, improving the quality of life. After tired, taking a comfortable bath is simply enjoyable. However, the installation of the bathtub is a problem. What should I pay attention to when installing? Xiaobian tells you.

**Step: Test whether the water is leaking

'Before placing the bathtub, install the water fittings and close the water to see if the bathtub is leaking. Pay special attention to the upper overflow. '

After lifting the bathtub into the bathroom, install the drain accessories, fill the bathtub with water, turn off the drain, and check for leaks. When the water overflows over the upper overflow, the water in the bathtub will disappear. It flows out from the overflow. At this time, reach under the bathtub and touch the back of the overflow to see if there is any water leaking from here. After the overflow test is passed, the next step is to check the tightness of the sewage. You can choose to stand still to observe the tightness of the sewage.

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 of the bathtub

When placing the bathtub, make sure that the other end of the drain is slightly higher than the end of the drain to prevent unsmooth drainage in the future. This depends on the situation. Generally, the bottom of a normal bathtub has a drainage slope.

Step 3: Filling with 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. In the process of filling the river sand, in order to prevent sand from leaking into the sewer pipes, fire workers recommend: first seal the sewer with glass glue, then use plastic cloth, entangle the sewer and the sewer pipe, and then fasten it with tape.

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.

After the bricklayer enters the site, first fill in the river sand from all the gaps. The process of filling is to put the sand while using wooden boards, hands, feet, etc. to pack the sand as hard as possible.

Step 4: Leave an inspection port

A hole with a height of 300mm and a width of 400mm is left at the drain, and a hole is cut according to the size, and the water-proof and anti-corrosion treatment is taken according to the size. Wooden board (thickness 40mm), stick the bricks on the board according to the calculated number and arrangement of the bricks on the board. The edge of the protruding brick is smeared with sealant and inlaid on the box body.

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 part of the brick is tucked under the round edge of the bathtub so that it does not form a positive angle.
