When I wanted to revamp the bathroom of my daughter’s house, I needed to choose a good design for her new vanity unit and one that would work as a flush door into curtain wall without any problems. So when we went for home shopping, I found the best products in the home improvement, hardware, mirrors and accessories that would help us in our plan to give a new face to the old bathroom. I was delighted to find all the options for a flush door into the curtain wall and decided to buy it. But before installation of this new vanity unit I did some researches and found out that these types of doors can only be installed on the wall that is behind toilet, basin or wash basin.
In our case, we chose a door which could be installed at the side of the room where the main door goes. Installing a door which you cannot access directly into curtain would be inconvenient. So to avoid these problems, I made a floor plan which would be very useful when installing the flush door into the curtain wall. I marked the location of plumb and leveling points using my bathroom floor plan. I removed the existing door and measured the space available for the new door.
The first thing I had to do was to locate the drain pipe. Since the shower enclosure is free standing, it is difficult to find the place where the drain pipes are placed. However, I was lucky enough to find it since the plumb was right next to the drain pipe. With the help of a spirit level, I placed the plumb line on the floor at the exact location of the drain. Then I placed the drain pipe on the floor and carefully set up the plumbing trap with the help of a plumber’s trap.
The second challenge was to locate the flush door into curtain wall revit and align the pivot point with the pivot line. This was again easy since the pipe from the trap was already placed at the bottom of the doorway. I loosened the nuts and then slowly turned the door back in position. In this situation, I was fortunate enough to have previously installed the pivot rod lock. I used the same spirit level to set the pivot point and then carefully aligned the flush door into curtain wall revit.
The third challenge was to get the drain open. After loosening the nuts, I removed the water from the shower and checked the position of the drain pipe. I found that it was slightly past the pivot point and aligned it with the pivot line. Then I turned on the water and flushed the shower. Within a few seconds, the flush door opened and the shower drain was successfully flushed out.
The entire installation was relatively easy. I highly recommend the use of a plumber for this type of project. Not only does the plumber be familiar with basic plumbing techniques, but he can also ensure that your flush door is properly installed in order to prevent any future problems.
