The first step: test the water leaks.
Placed well before the first water bath accessories, do 24 hours off the water, to see whether there is leaking bathtub, paying particular attention to the overflow. 24 hours closed water difficult to do, in the bathroom outside, pour two buckets of water, try the well to the water bath, so that the operation more convenient.
To the actual installation time, directly to the bath carried into the bathroom, on the launching of the location, due to change the location of the water leaving the mixing water faucet is the width of the tub just right, if the size and mixing water bath is not exactly, it is necessary Note bath center should be facing the troubled waters of the center, or in the future after the placement of the mixing faucet will be difficult to see.
Carried into the bathroom after a bath, start the placement of the water fittings, the bathtub filled with water, turn off the water, check for leaks when the water swept over a weir, a bathtub inside the water outflow from the overflow to go, this time, I lying on the ground, he reached into the bottom of a bathtub, to touch the back of the overflow, and see if there is water leak from here. After the overflow of the test, followed by checking the water closed, I choose to stand method to observe the water tightness, the beginning of time there is no problem, after about 10 minutes later, a quiet few seconds had separated bathroom gurgle of bubbling water at the sound of the water is not installed closed, leakage, decided to let go of the water to be reinstalled.
This time, found the problem, the water gurgle piece original blister copper to take next, there is a certain part of trachoma, we were tossing several times, he missed. There is little lucky, carried into the bath tub outset, when the fear of costs of water drainage experiments, also a tank full of water, under pressure, trachoma is pressed bigger, so will leak, if only in small amounts water, would not achieve so much pressure, this time it will not leak. If you are a skilled hydraulic maybe like me very impatient to test, then the problem may not be discovered? On the other hand also from the side that this is indeed the quality of delivery of hardware in general, buy hardware or buy good.
It should be noted that: the width of the center of Bath whether in leading center. This is in the beginning when they want to change the water well, the width of the bathtub is to select 700? 750? 800? Once the water is determined to change the troubled waters of a good size, it is possible to buy a bath according to this, or after mixing with water away from the wall and then change the size is very difficult.
Step two: bathtub leveling.
Keep the bathtub drain at the other end of the note is slightly higher than the end of the drain to the sewage poor future. This is due to the circumstances. Originally bathtub Xiao Gong is so recommended. Observed at the bottom of a bathtub drain it would have to stay out of the slope, with a level four sides of the tub after leveling put a water test, if as expected, the water rapidly drain. Bath visually maintain the appearance level, without affecting the drainage effect
The third step: fill sand.
Cast iron bathtub, although strong, but its thermal conductivity is very fast, you should use the sand, laid firmly at the bottom of the bathtub, hit real. Bricklayer also recommended available foam, the foam is better to consider sand has fluidity, it is suitable to fill all the gaps. Sand filling process, how can not leak into the sand under the water is a problem to be solved.
After the end of all the work placement test once again turn on the water (this step is mainly behind the move to ensure that there is no bath so the water leaks), determine the correct, just wait a bricklayer to build skirt.
Step Four: stay manhole.
Left in the drain hole at the height 300 mm width 400 mm, according to the size of the interception of a port, according to the size of the interception did waterproofing, wood preservative treatment (thickness 40 mm), calculated on the plate according to the number and arrangement of the brick building with 903 Glue the brick veneer on the board. Projecting brick edge sealant cast, set in the box
This is in order to facilitate future maintenance bathtub drainage system. When the puzzle tub skirt, for aesthetic reasons, all reserved for the height of 600, to give mosaics and other materials, a bathtub and a lower skirt using the same brick wall, so to do it, under the wall, floor tiles, bath skirt all a color of a material, it is beautiful.
Step Five: tiling
Bath skirt tiles is not required Fleece, Qi Hao red brick table, wipe the surface layer of cement mortar, and then wait two days to come back tiling, tiling a lot of trouble, because the ground left a slope, and Bath It is flat, so each must be a large brick polished into different sizes, not a lot of grinding, easy to wear more, to repeatedly grind. To lower the upper brick stuffed with rounded edges bathtub, so that it will not form a positive angle.
