Here’s a common question we often receive: Can the bathtub be serviced from underneath if I install an access door below it?

Renovating a bathroom is really exciting. It’s the perfect opportunity to turn your bathroom into a fully functional and beautiful space. Especially if you’ve been living with a bathroom that just hasn’t met the needs of your family, then renovating is the perfect solution to the problem.

My advice, though, is to plan the renovation very carefully. It’s really easy to get caught up in the finishing details, like choosing which tiles, color of paint or fixtures you’re going to use. But, if the technical details are ignored, then there’s a lot that can go wrong.

For instance, when installing a bathtub, homeowners may not realize that they also need to allow space for an access door to all the plumbing that makes the bathtub function. Ideally, you’re going to want to hire a general contractor who understands where the access door should go. It’s really important to know that the access door must be placed at the back of the tub. That’s the only way the unit can be serviced.

If you have any doubts about how to install an access door properly, call our Support Team. They’re very familiar with many installation situations and are very happy to help.

Many of our customers wonder if the steam shower cabin needs to be attached to the wall. If you’re building a custom steam shower cabin, then I’d say, yes, the cabin should actually be part of the wall.

But, if you’ve purchased a modular, or pre-fabricated, unit, you don’t have to worry about attaching the unit to the wall. It won’t fall over. Our steam showers are solidly constructed, and will stand on their own without tipping. (You should make sure that the floor is truly level, though!). Beyond safety, the only other reason for making sure that the wall is at least close to the unit is for its aesthetic sense.
