Tips for bathtub installation to easily create a comfortable bathroom
Bathtub is synonymous with warmth and comfort. Lying in the bathtub quietly, surrounded by warm water, fades away from exhaustion, and relaxes to the fullest of what a leisurely and comfortable life. However, it is not an easy task to enjoy this life easily. If the installation of the bathtub is not paid attention to, the problems that may be caused during the use may be stung for us. So how to master the bathtub installation skills to create a comfortable bathroom? Please follow me:
**Step: Test whether the water is leaking
Place the bathtub before placing it For accessories, keep the water closed for 24 hours to see if there is water leakage in the bathtub, and pay special attention to the 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 comes to the actual installation, the bathtub is directly lifted into the bathroom and placed in the water position. 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 If the mixing water is not right, it is necessary to 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 tap 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 any water leaked 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 sealed, 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 bubbling with blisters 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 waste 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 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. The bathtub was originally suggested by Xiao Gong. It was observed that the bottom of the bathtub had a drainage slope. The four sides of the bathtub were leveled with a spirit level and tested with water. As expected, the water drained quickly. The bathtub maintains a visually beautiful level without affecting the drainage effect
Step 3: Filling with sand
Although the cast iron bathtub is strong, its thermal conductivity is very fast. Should use medium river sand, pave 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 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), use 903 construction glue to stick the bricks on the board according to the calculated number and arrangement of the bricks. 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. After doing this, the lower wall tiles, floor tiles, and bathtub skirts are all One color and one material are very beautiful.
The fifth step: tiling
The tiling of the bathtub skirt does not need to be scratched. Put 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 slope is left on the ground 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 rounded edge of the bathtub so that it does not form a positive angle.
