This is a conversion of an en-suite bathroom to shower room.

The property already has a house bathroom so the customer felt that they would rather have a more spacious shower room. The original room was very claustrophobic due to the large amount of fitted furniture, a dwarf wall next to the WC and an enclosed shower cubicle. All in all a gloomy place.

The old suite and units were removed, along with the shower enclosure and dwarf wall and replaced with a walk in shower, wall hung basin and back to wall WC. The floor was sheathed in cement board, glued and screwed then underfloor heating element fitted and screeded prior to tiling. The existing hot water supply is via a low pressure tank fed cylinder so a whole house pump was fitted to boost pressure to the shower, house bathroom shower and a further en-suite shower.

The ceiling was boarded and skimmed and low voltage led down lights fitted. Floor & walls fully tiled with inset mosaic panels to two walls and chrome trim to all edges. A new oak door and architrave fitted and ceiling painted to complete the works.

Also in the gallery are three pictures showing a central heating filter fitted as the system was partially drained to fit the new towel rail, the before & after picture of the accumulated sludge was over a 24 hour period. Definitely a system that needs power flushing. Radiators have been replaced over the last few years and inhibitor levels allowed to drop resulting in a build up of sludge in the system. This causes poor water flow in some tall column radiators downstairs and cool spots and poor performance in others. This illustrates why heating systems should be kept clean and inhibitor levels maintained. Plumbers don’t make this up just to sell you a filter!
