Top tip: Make sure your replacement bath waste fittings closely match your existing ones. How to fit a bath pop up waste and overflow More often used in free standing bathtubs, an invisible overflow removes the need for a classic overflow, and instead utilises a tastefully hidden mechanism. At once elegant and minimal, they are a popular choice for period and traditional bathrooms. Exposed Bath Pop Up Bath Wastes may not be the first thing to jump into your mind when you set about designing a bathroom and planning your decor, however, it can be well worth the time it takes to think about your options and choose one thatfits your style and functional needs.

The first thing you need to do is get access to your existing tub. This job is much easier for baths you haven’t yet installed. So, depending on the type of tub and fittings you have, this will either be a simple or difficult step. For example, freestanding tubs or those with slip fittings will make your life easier. When you are putting together your dream bathroom, it is important to keep in mind;the little things make a big difference. Your accessories, your finishing touches and even your more utilitarian, functional parts can have a huge impact on your chosen look. Bath Wastesare a prime example of this. Are you using a monobloc tap (one which if on the edge of the bath would need only one hole)? - Use a mono standpipe Many traditional baths come with feet that have an adjustable pad underneath which had a bolt attached that fixes into the foot casting and can be used to raise the foot up and down. Usually these baths can be fixed to the floor by applying silicon to the bottom of these pads and cementing the bath to the floor like this. Use the technique discussed in the last bullet point, i.e. plenty of silicon and weigh the bath down with water or something else whilst the silicon is setting. To help make your choice easier, we have compiled a list of thedifferent styles and functions available for Bath Waste Kits, so think about what you would be happy to live with and use in your day-to-day routine.

The Overflow is the part of your bath that helps prevent, well, you guessed it, your bath from overflowing! Usually a small hole or grill, the overflow is not only functional but can add to your overall look. Integrated Bath Fillers Hopefully, you have another person helping you at this point. If so, ask them to help you line up the overflow tube with the overflow opening on your bath. You also need to make sure the horizontal drain arm lines up with the drain opening on the bottom of your tub. Does your tap have a hand held shower attached but with no integral hook to rest it on? - Use minimalist standpipes This is a combined unit of a Waste Kit and a Bath Filler. Providing your bath with an even more modern look, these Integrated Bath Filler Waste Kits give you a side-fill function that removes the need for a traditional spout or bath filler. Instead, a (usually chrome) overflow unit doubles up as both bath filler and overflow - a clean, sharp look that is great for contemporary bathrooms. Invisible Overflow and Waste
