New toilet, basin and towel rail installed in Tewin cloakroom

Toilet radiator and basin installation in Tewin, HertfordshireThis customer in Tewin had an old 1980’s avocado colour toilet and matching basin. Furthermore, the basin was over-sized for a small downstairs cloakroom. Therefore the job was to:

  • install a new toilet with cistern flush to the wall for easier cleaning
  • install a small modern basin more suitable for a downstairs cloakroom
  • remove the old radiator and install a modern towel rail radiator

As with all these types of jobs, I also added isolation values on the radiator and basin so in an emergency the customer can quickly stop the flow of water. Plus, in such an old cloakroom you often find exposed pipework and this room was no exception. I was able to remove and cap one pipe that was no longer being used then hide the end in a ceiling void. This involved making a small hole in the ceiling then replacing with plasterboard after the pipe had been cut and capped. I also boxed in the cold water pipe and made a small cupboard with opening so that the customer can access the mains water tap yet still have the tap out of sight.

The radiator pipe work had been hidden in the skirting board so that needed to be replaced which was the final part of this job.

Milton was able to advise me on which toilet, basin and radiator I needed plus he gave good advice on where to move the radiator and which of the exposed pipes could be removed. On top of the plumbing, Milton also added new skirting and boxed in old pipework – so we didn’t need to also hire the services of a carpenter. I would highly recommend.
