If you don’t have room for a shower unit, you can install a shower over your bath or fit a mixer tap with a shower attachment, but you will need to fit a waterproof barrier. A purpose-made bath screen or a shower curtain will protect the rest of the bathroom from the spray.
Fitting a Shower Panel
When fitting a shower panel for a wetroom, ensure to consider if the tiling should be done first. Also depending on what shower tray you are getting it could come with specific fittings like upstands that need to go under the tiles. The shower tray should go in first and be true and level, it can then be sealed between the tray and wall. The tiler then will be able to tile from this level then sealed again ensuring no leaks. Also you will need to make sure the walls are square, if not this could in-turn throw the shower tray out and then the framework for the screen and doors.
As part of this, the plumbing is essential such as testing the waste for leaks, water feed, and electrics if you are planning to use an electric shower. Then depending on the floor being level then fit the tray. To ensure waterproofing Pva the walls first then tile the walls. Once the tray is fitted then shower glass panels can be installed, then finally seal up the edges with sealer.
Fitting a Folding Bath Screen
A bath screen that folds is useful as you can push it out of the way when you are not showering. The hinged screen comes ready to fix to the wall, with rubber sealing strips at the bottom already fitted. Follow the instructions for fitting to the wall above. Slot in the bath screen then unfold it. As you unfold, the rubber seal should fit snugly against the bath edge. You can start leak-free showering straightaway
