    can I install a bath onto walled tiles?


    I've a wet room all tiled but I want to put a p bath in under the shower onto the walls. I don't want to have to redecorate, just install the bath. One plumber said he would seal it ato the tiles, another said you have to fix it to the wall not the tiles. He went on to say taking one row of tiles off may damage the next tiles and it'd be best having "mermaid" bath panels on the wall to fix the bath to. Which plumber is right?

    "The best way is to tie the bath to the wall as if not the seal around the bath will move and come away over time so we would say the second plumber is correct"
