Hi giacomjo,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a claw foot bath to install in a tiled bathroom. How do you fix the bath to the floor so it is secure and doesn't move?

A little clear silicone caulk under each claw is my favorite method. Locate the tub in it"s final position. Set up the drain and water connections so that you can complete them without moving the tub. Lift each end in turn just a bit and aply some caulk, you may need a helper. Wipe off the excess. Then hook up.

Feel free contact me again!

How do i work out square meterage for a bathroom (floor and walls)? I need to retile


Multiply length by height in metres for each wall, and add up all these wall areas. Then multiply length times breadth for the floor, not forgetting the shower. If it is irregular in shape, divide it up into rectangular sections, measure each and add together for a floor total.

You will need then to add about 10% to floor and wall totals for wastage.

You don't say whether you are tiling yourself, but take special care in waterproofing in the shower and under the bath, if any. Also take care with the fall to the floor drain in the shower recess, if any.

Tiled bathroom floor. Went to install toilet


hi, the tile is supposed to go under the toilet flange (the thing you put the wax ring on), very common "oops", can be rectified by placing another wax ring right on top of the first on. best to make the first one a "horn type" wax ring, then put the plain one (no horn) on top of first and try to smoosh it on just enough to stay in place so when you install toilet it doesn't move,.....cheers!
