Water Tank and Bath Tub

Our 5,000L water tank from Tankworks arrived in early December and Len and Ben the plumbers filled it with a bit of water and temporarily hooked it up to one of the down pipes. Eventually it will catch water from all three of the roofs. When we ordered the water tank 4 weeks prior we had anticipated that the internal rendering would be finished and the external wall near the tank might also have been done. As it turns out this was not to be. At least we left enough space between the tank and the wall to access it easily.

While the plumbers were out doing the tank they also installed the bath tub. After all my effort making the bath hob and getting it the right height for the Moroccan tiles, the bath fitted in perfectly. I can now fill in the missing tile that was left off to allow access to the bath waste. We chose a Franke steel bath as our current plastic bath has scratched and I got it for a good price on E-bay. With the shower nearby when you are really dirty you can do the Japanese thing and rinse off the dirt on the shower and use the bath for soaking.

  1. The 1800mm Bath is among the roomy bath range that falls in an enormous measured tub classification. Bathtubs are not another innovation. Maybe, their set of experiences returns to 3000 BC. Nonetheless, present day baths are not quite the same as what they were 100 years prior. Their shape, materials, style, and sizes all have changed over the long run. While showers have been exceptionally famous over the most recent couple of many years, baths are as yet a favored bathroom utility for some reasons. Get More Information 1800mm Bath
