I am refurbing a 1970s bathroom and should receive my bath today.
This is an Aquarius acrylic model with an "Aquanite" coating.
My question relates to the waste outlet fittings available now.
They all seem to be plastic with corrugated plastic overflow pipes which
simply push into the waste body with a feeble "o" ring seal.
Are the all metal body types still available? The sheds and local plumbers
If they are, are they suitable for an acrylic bath?
Finally, where the waste grill fits into the bath outlet, the seal method
seems to be a thin rubber washer.
Do these not harden and leak after a year or two's exposure to hot/cold
Any recommendations on best practice for sealing waste outlet and tap bodies
to bath greatly appreciated.
