Should I have an overflow waste fitted for my bath?
All of our bathtubs can be fitted with an overflow waste kit. Many of our clients opt to have an overflow fitted for safety and possible property insurance requirements, to prevent flooding by draining water when it reaches a certain level. There is also the aesthetic appeal, adding an additional design touch to the bath. If you would like a waste kit fitted, you can select this as an additional option when you are adding a bathtub to your cart. You can view our range here, and these can also be ordered as a standalone accessory if you would like to fit one to an existing bathtub.
Do I need specialist fitting for a bateau bath?
No specialist fitting is required on our baths. Simply connect the waste kit to your outlet, within the space provided behind the skirt. Then run a bead of neutral cure silicon around the base of the bath and bed it into position. We recommend 2 people for manoeuvring our bathtubs.
Will a bateau bath be too heavy for my bathroom floor?
On average our baths weigh only 45kg. This is far lighter than their cast iron equivalents which weigh anywhere between 170-250kg and often require floor reinforcement.
Care and Maintenance
Do copper baths need to be kept dry?
For all of our metal finishes we recommend you rinse and wipe dry the inside surface of the bath after each use, using a soft microfibre cloth. This helps to prevent water marks that may appear over time. If you are looking for a lower maintenance bathtub, you might opt for an enamel interior which does not need to be dried.
How do I clean and care for a copper bath?
Each bath comes complete with a full care and maintenance kit containing instructions and the necessary materials to maintain your bath. To maintain a polished finish this will require hand polishing with a suitable polish and a soft microfibre cloth. The application of a suitable high temperature wax can be applied to enhance the beauty of the finish and provide a degree of protection against surface marking. For both Antique and Polished finishes, if customers choose to allow the natural ageing and patination process to develop in character, then there is very little maintenance required other than wiping the surface of the product dry with a soft microfibre cloth and washing occasionally with hot soapy water. Never use proprietary bathroom cleaners on the surface of a living finish product, as this will likely result in the removal of surface patination in an unsightly way. The application of a suitable high temperature wax can be applied to enhance the beauty of the finish and provide a degree of protection against surface marking.
Can I have a custom sized bath?
Should you have a specific size requirement, please contact us with your preferred unique measurements and we will handcraft a bespoke bath for you.
Can I have a custom bath colour?
If you are interested in a custom finish, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss this further with you.
Can I select a combination of finishes that aren’t listed?
If you can’t see the combination of finishes you would like on our website, don’t hesitate to contact us. All of our bathtubs are made to order, therefore we can accommodate for a variety of finishes.
What bath finishes can I have?
All of our finishes are available on both the interior as well as the exterior of the bath. This goes for all copper, brass, antique, nickel, enamel or coloured finishes. The choices are limitless and with such a wide array of finishes you can find the perfect combination for you. We also offer the majority of RAL colors as standard with a colour match option for custom orders.
Do copper baths retain heat?
Yes, and very well indeed! Copper is a conductor of heat, so you will get an even warmth throughout, and the bathtub will retain heat for longer than other bath materials. This applies to all of our finishes as the base material, either copper or brass, both conduct heat very well.
