Do you still know this side opening on shower and bath tubs? In the past, a tile was not glued to the bathtub cladding near the drain, but was fixed with metal clips. If the drain was blocked, you could easily remove the tile and get to the waste set to clean it. Very practical if the blockage could not be solved with the suction cup or pump. It is important that everyone who assembles or has a shower or bathtub installed in order to avoid having to order the installer with the long spiral if the drain is blocked.
Plaster curved bathtub cladding
Wellness baths are booming. New shapes of bathtubs and shower trays are pushing into the bathrooms. But before recovery, the question arises: How do I plaster rounded bathtub covers? Corner bathtubs in particular usually have a curved front. If you now brick up the tub cladding yourself, this curve must also be leveled and plastered before tiling.
Careful work (with a spirit level) and this guide helps to ensure that the brick tub cladding is also perpendicular to the floor: build a template from residual wood (e.g. roof battens) to remove the plaster. The horizontal bar is pushed over the floor, the vertical bar smoothes the plaster application. The gauge is guided along the shape of the tub by the second horizontal bar that abuts the tub edge. The further the distance between the front edges of the upper horizontal bar and the vertical bar, the wider the ledge next to the tub edge.
Inspection flap in the bath apron
In the past, it was mostly a loose-fitting, clamped tile on the bathtub side, today the inspection opening is more elegantly solved - but no less important. Because today, in particular, many lines, valves and drains are hidden behind wall systems and cannot be reached without a revision door or inspection hatch.
If something is blocked or a valve needs to be shut off, you can look forward to an easy-opening inspection flap in the tiled surface. It is therefore important to think about installing an inspection opening when upgrading the bathroom. For example, Marley inspection flaps are available from hardware stores with aluminum or galvanized steel surfaces, as well as snap, pressure and square locks. Cost: Depending on the size from about 10 euros. Info: ✆ 05031 / 53-0.
