Fitting shower bar

Recommended Posts

Yep this is the plan. To try and get the pipes at 150. I reckon I might be able to do it without removing tiles though.

No more than the rest of us typing here at this time of night.

Budweiser is my co-pilot.

100% don't remove any tiles!! That is a journey you really do not want to start....

Stuck in the double tree Hilton at Swindon ATM and relegated to my room with the best of the shite they had to offer.... Out of Bombardier, so Bud it is.

It's ok to make a mistake from time to time.

 

 

 

 

 

How many mistakes can you make before you should give up ?

The key thing I get from this thread is in future ask the forum BEFORE you start a job, then you would have known to get the pipes 150mm, bin the cranked bits, and drill the holes in the tiles slightly over size to give a bit of wriggle room.

 

If you have access from behind, I would remove the pipes and uses something like a dremmel to grind a bit of tile away to elongate both holes by 3mm so you can get your 150mm spacing.

I used a mounting bracket for both of mine - even easier than the individual brackets.
