[category-introduction] There’s nothing quite like the feeling of taking a bath. It relaxes the muscles, gets the blood moving and can make you breathe easier – there’s no disputing that bath time delivers loads of great physical and mental benefits. A bath also provides the perfect place to get the kids clean and to wash the family dog! In fact, every family home should have at least one bathtub. It not only adds function to your home, it has the potential to add value. But not all baths are equal. Shop the Tradelink baths range in store or online to discover the differences. Corner baths and shower baths are particularly suited to small spaces, while back-to-wall baths can give you a freestanding bath look for less. Then there’s the indoor spa bath that takes relaxation to lofty new heights. Tradelink has everything you need to create the bathroom of your dreams – bathroom baths and spa baths included!

Our Favourite Bathtubs

  • Freestanding Baths
    Considered by some as the ultimate luxury addition to a bathroom, a freestanding bathtub stands alone and commands attention, making it a real centrepiece. Freestanding baths are not built against walls, so they are finished on all sides and can be viewed from every angle. They are often larger and deeper than other bath types, which adds to the luxury experience. While freestanding bathtubs are best suited to bigger bathrooms and require a bigger budget, they are very easy to install as they don’t need any additional framing or support. Nor do they need additional grouting or tiling. You can place a freestanding bath anywhere in the bathroom that space (and plumbing) allows. They are easy to clean and maintain (there are no tiles or grout and glass to consider).
  • Spa Baths
    An indoor spa bath is a large bath tub with powered jets installed inside. Spa baths come in a range of shapes and sizes and include free standing spa bath options. While the triangular-shaped baths of the past are still available, today’s spa baths include elegant and compact designs that are so inviting you’ll want to dive right in. All modern spa baths allow the user to sit or recline in the bath to receive the massage benefits of the water that is pushed through the jets under pressure. Spa baths promote relaxation and reduce stress and can offer a range of other health benefits, including improved sleep, lower blood pressure and beautiful skin. Spa baths can come with ergonomically shaped lumbar support to cradle the back and steep sides for maximum internal space. While others are designed to maximise reclining, comfort and function and have head rests for two. There really is a spa that’s right for you.
  • Back To Wall Baths
    As the name suggests, a back-to-wall bath sits neatly against a wall with the sides exposed. It’s a hybrid option that blends the benefits of inset baths and freestanding baths. Back-to-wall baths give a grand and imposing impression like freestanding baths do, but they are more affordable. They take away the nooks and crannies to simplify the cleaning. They also hide the plumbing and offer a streamlined look. And just like the inset bath, the back-to-wall bath is a great space saver and requires very little maintenance. Your back-to-wall bath can be installed into a tiled wall or sit against it. Choose from different colour options, including baths with a high gloss black and white finish, and go big and choose a bath with an indulgent 175 litre capacity.
  • Corner Baths
    A corner bath can take many different shapes, sizes, and configurations. But all corner baths have one thing in common – they are designed to fit into corners. This often results in them providing more bathing space than other bath options. A corner bathtub typically has four sides but can also be three- or five-sided. They make cleaning easy with no nooks or crannies to clean around. Choose a corner bath when you are trying to free up floor space or want to make use of an odd-shaped corner or a space that would otherwise remain unused. Very often, the one corner bath design is available in a range of sizes, so if you find a design you like ask if it comes in the right size for you.
  • Shower Baths
    A shower bath is designed to help you make the most of a small bathroom when space limits your ability to install a shower enclosure and a bath. Shower baths  gives you the best of everything – a place to relax your muscles and to bathe small children, and all the benefits of a shower, including the ability to linger as long as you like, or opt for a quick splash and dash! There are premium choices available, manufactured from steel, highly durable and scratch and stain resistant.There are shower baths designed for small spaces too, with a slip-resistant base making them suited to small children and acrylic fabrication for affordability and durability. The shower baths in the Tradelink range are easy to step into and out of and yet deep enough to make bath time enjoyable. Stop the water from splashing everywhere in your shower bath with a bath shower screen or wall-fixed panel from the Tradelink range.
  • Inset Baths
    An inset bath (sometimes called a built-in bath) is a bath that is fitted flush against a wall. Inset baths remain a very popular and affordable choice for Australian bathrooms, and they’re particularly suited to families with young children and homes with smaller bathrooms. Inset baths are quite low maintenance as they have minimal crevices and cracks, and plumbing is straightforward and always hidden out of sight, under the tub.      Our best-selling inset baths are favoured for their soft curves, modern design, and quality materials and finish. Plus they also come in a range of sizes. Ask our talented team about them.

[seo-section-b-title] Bath & Indoor Spa Baths Frequently Asked Questions
[accordion-1-visibility] true
[accordion-item-title-1] What are baths made of?
[accordion-item-content-1] Gone are the days of being limited to one or two bath material choices. Now you have a great range to choose from. Acrylic remains popular, as do other options including fibreglass, porcelain, enamelled steel, composite stone, copper or even wood. Materials like acrylic and fibreglass are at the more affordable end of the price range, while stone or concrete are at the luxury end and certainly make a grand impression. These baths are also heavier so are more likely to resist damage, but they may require a floor that has been specially engineered to take their weight when full of water. Wood gives you the absolute freedom to craft a truly custom bath or any size or shape. But it’s hard to pass up the magnificence of a porcelain bath or the durability of enamelled steel.
[accordion-2-visibility] true
[accordion-item-title-2] What uses more water – bath or shower?
[accordion-item-content-2] Provided you don’t take too long in the shower, a shower will use less water than an average bath. This answer is shaped by lots of different variables though. Are you using a standard showerhead or a low-flow option? How long do you typically spend in the shower? How big is your bath? And how full do you like it? The Plumbing Code of Australia requires that showerheads in all new developments have a maximum flow rate of 9L per minute. Research suggests the average Australian spends seven minutes in the shower. So, when you do the sums, this adds up to a typical shower event using 63 litres of water. Compare that to a bath that uses between 50 to 150 litres to fill, depending on the bath design and water level. Deep bathtubs and spa baths can take a lot more than that! But let’s average that and say a typical bath uses 100 litres of water. So when you compare 63 litres of water to 100 litres of water, it’s the shower that comes out in front.

[accordion-item-title-3] How to install a bathtub
[accordion-item-content-3] Installing a bathtub is one of the most complex jobs required in a bathroom renovation. So, it’s not something that should be attempted by an inexperienced DIYer. If this is you, leaving it to a licensed plumber is your best option. It will also protect your bathtub warranty. But if you have plumbing and construction experience and feel up to the challenge, follow these steps.
  • Step 1: turn off the water at the water main.
  • Step 2: take out the old tub by removing the drain, taps and spout, removing the existing tub surround or tiles, gaining access to and disconnecting the existing plumbing, and then cutting the tub into pieces for removal or removing the tub in one piece.
  • Step 3: position the new tub in the space to ensure it fits, checking that the plumbing aligns.
  • Step 4: complete any plumbing or structural work that may be required by the manufacturer or engineer to allow the new tub to be safely and securely fixed in place. For example, you may need to install a ledger board to the length of the wall that the long edge of the tub will be placed against. Or some bathtub manufacturers require mortar to be spread on the floor for the tub to be set in.
  • Step 5: attach the drain to the tub and secure the overflow drain.
  • Step 6: set the new tub in place and level it. Secure it in according to the manufacturer’s instructions and tub design. This could include fixing the tub to the studs and placing a bead of silicone caulk around the perimeter.
  • Step 7: connect the plumbing and install the tapware.
  • Step 8: turn on the water supply but wait 24 hours before enjoying your first soothing soak. After all this hard work, you’ll certainly deserve it.
