INSTALLATION STEPS
This installation is meant for a certified plumber.
We strongly recommend consulting professional help if assistance is needed.
1.) Remove the freestanding bathtub from the wooden crate.
3.) Adjust the self-leveling feet until the freestanding bathtub is leveled.


To ensure that the freestanding bathtub does not come in contact with
rough surfaces and becomes scratched, please remember to always protect it and place it on a soft surface.
2.) Place the freestanding bathtub in the position you plan to install it.
Ensure that the adjustable feet on the bathtub is level with the floor and the
walls of the bathtub. NOTE: The freestanding bathtub will only drain properly if it is leveled.
4.) Connect the freestanding bathtub to the waste outlet. Use plumbers putty if
applicable.
5.) Test the drainage to ensure that the water drains freely.

Fill the freestanding bathtub with water and check that all the water flows freely to the waste outlet. A small amount of water may pool due to surface tension;
this remaining water is normal.
NOTE: Please ensure that all the masking plastic adhered to the drain is removed.
6.) Apply a thick bead of silicone/caulking to the outline of the bathtub and allow it to set for 24 hours.
