How to Install Walk-in Bathtubs in London

The bathroom is one of the most important places in a home and most owners remodel their bathrooms more often than other spaces in the house. The latest trend of bathroom renovation in London is installing a walk-in bathtub. Even if it might seem easy, it is important to choose the right type of walk-in tub and have it installed by professional local plumbers.

If you want to know what to expect when installing a walk-in bathtub, our plumbers in London are here to guide you through the whole process.

Once you decided to change your old bathtub for a new one, or better for a walk-in tub, you should take note of the following aspects:

  1. have our plumber in London check the bathroom for any leaks, take the necessary measurements and recommend the size of the walk-in bathtub;
  2. once the new bathtub is purchased, the old one must be carefully removed in order to not damage the pipelines;
  3. the installation site of the walk-in bathtub must be inspected once more, and our emergency plumber in London will check if there are any pipes which must be replaced;
  4. the new plumbing, drainage and electrical system (where these exist) must be set up and aligned with the dimensions of the new bathtub;
