A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Fitting and Installing a Shower Tray



information
Bit of a can of worms this one. I was once asked by a South African chap to change one for him. A day later we were both on the case. I was under the floor in the next room feeding a waste pipe to him through a hole…. and it was never going to work.

He was a wealthy man, had never been involved in the lowlife, seamy, grime-filled, thankless task of trying to manipulate the unmanipulatable, that is the sorry lot of the working man. He might have been wealthy and used to moving in better circles than he found himself in at that moment but he slithered right down to my level when he sighed and said………

“I’ll tell you what mate, forget this. I’m going to hire a bulldozer and demolish the house, then we can start from scratch!


Only if you can fit
exactly the same tray as the old one, can you guarantee there won’t be anything but the usual problems to solve (no job is ever totally problem free).

1. A different
sized tray will mean a complete new cubicle and tiling.

2. A different configuration tray will mean that the waste outlet won’t be in the same position. If the floor is solid, this will mean a bit of demolition!

3. A lower tray will require more tiling, can you still get matching ones?

4. A taller tray will mean tile cutting (and they will be stuck to the wall)!

Whatever tray gets fitted, the
cubicle will have to be removed and returned and this may need new fixing holes. If the wall is timber studding, will there be anything to screw to? Also, I don’t care how careful he is, some of the bottom tiles will come away. AND he will probably need a new waste outlet and that has to match as well!!

I’ll warm the bulldozer up shall I?
