First, let's deal with the material from which made the bath, this will depend on your future actions in her attachment to the place.
If the tub is cast iron, its undeniable advantage is the durability, it also keeps warm. However, it is incredibly heavy and not every floor can withstand, it is therefore appropriate to build a runway.
If the tub is steel, it is much easier, cheaper, simpler to install, but its lifetime is less than that of cast iron. Significant disadvantages of the baths is the noise that water makes when you type. It can hear even your neighbors. So before installation it is necessary to coat the outside of the putty. It will dampen the sounds and help a steel tub to keep warm. Also steel tub faster lose its attractive appearance: with her easily flies off the enamel.
Another material used to make tubs is acrylic. These baths are very comfortable, not slippery and hold heat well. But their main drawback – low strength. No matter how praised manufacturers of acrylic baths, there were times when a bath just could not withstand the weight of a fat man and her legs pressed inwards.
Most often tubs are put on the legs. But the problem is that if you just put it on the floor, during the bath she will swing, which is not very nice. What's the solution to this might be? In the case of cast iron bathtub, build a catwalk on the spot where she would stand so that the legs of the bath remained on the floor, and the podium was supported only by the bottom. The podium is constructed of brick and leveled using a bubble level. Then install with the help of a bath on the podium and, if necessary, adjust the height of the legs, it will make it easier, since now the restaurant is not based on them, and on the podium.
The General principles of installation and fixing the following bath:
* Place the tub on one side and mount from the outside overflow pipe to the overflow bath and the bath bottom release;

* Connect the outdoor siphon with the release and overflow of the tank;

* Now attach the legs to the bathroom and put the tub so that the nozzle of the siphon inserted in the sewer pipe.

* Slide the tub close to the walls

* The junction of the siphon and drain zaccanti;

* Under the legs of the bath put a wooden plate to bath installed with a slight slope towards the drain, otherwise you will be constantly accumulating water inside the bath;

* When the bath is securely fixed and adjusted the height, it is necessary to plug the gap between the bots and the bathroom walls with cement or putty. On top of the sealing layer is better to put a ceramic backsplash.
After installation tub closed drywall on top of which lay the tile, or a plastic screen.
