The Athena welcomes you with its modern appeal brought forward by its straight sides and equilateral design. The Athena makes a statement of strength for modern living spaces with its two sizing options - this one of 1800mm.
The waste is offset in the centre of the bath, and the overflow outlet is centred in the long side closest to the waste - this makes for easy and logical plumbing installation and maximizes comfort when in the bath.
In line with Italtile’s LiveGreen ethos, all Aquarius baths are well insulated reinforced Perspex, which is not only strong but keeps the water balmy for longer. Supporting local manufacturers of a product like this means no carbon footprint is left behind.
Maintenance of your bath is paramount: cleaning with non-abrasive cleaning agents to maintain the high gloss finish which will not stain, rust or corrode. One less thing to worry about with a 5-year manufacturer warranty.
The Athena bath has a volume of 190 litres.
-Turn off the water supply and check that all the water has drained out of the pipes
-If you're planning to move the plumbing points, get an accredited plumber to do this for you
-If you're replacing the old bath - remove the old bath installation. Prepare the area where you're going to install the new bath.
- Ensure that the area is free of sharp objects - they could damage the bottom or the side of the bath
-You'll need to decide how high you want your bath. Measure and make your mark. It's recommended that the height should be at least 450mm above floor level.
-Once you've marked the height, securely fasten the support battens against the back and sidewall. Make sure that they're level.
-Position the bath with the backside resting on the battens. Check again using the spirit level that the bath is level.
Place 3x equally spaced bricks in a row, with ample mortar, under the reinforcing ribs of the bath. This will support the bath underneath. Check that the first row is as close as possible to the waste fitting.
-Check that the openings and the sides are now level with the ends of the battens. Install the taps and the waste pipe and fittings, if you've not already done so.
-Finish the frame - The outside of the frame is often tiled to create a cohesive bathroom design. Make sure to leave an access area if you're installing a whirlpool tub (for future repairs).
-You can finish the frame with any materials that work with your interior design.
