How to Fit a Wall Mounted Bathroom Tap: A Comprehensive Guide


Wall-mounted bathroom taps offer a sleek, modern look that can save space and enhance the overall aesthetic of your bathroom. Whether you're renovating your bathroom or simply upgrading your fixtures, installing a wall-mounted tap can seem daunting.

However, with the right tools and some careful planning, it can be a manageable DIY project. This guide from Tapron UK will walk you through the steps to successfully fit a wall-mounted bathroom tap, ensuring a stylish and functional addition to your bathroom.

Tools and Materials Needed

  • Adjustable wrench
  • Drill and drill bits (suitable for your wall type)
  • Wall mounting kit (usually supplied with the tap)
  • Spirit level
  • Pipe cutter
  • Teflon tape (thread seal tape)
  • Silicone sealant
  • Screws and wall plugs (if not included in the mounting kit)

Step 1: Preparation

  1. Choose the Right Tap: Ensure the wall-mounted tap you select is compatible with your basin and bathroom style. Tapron UK offers a variety of wall-mounted taps to fit any bathroom design.
  2. Turn Off the Water Supply: Before starting, turn off the water supply to prevent any accidental leaks or spills during installation.
  3. Remove Old Fixtures: If replacing an existing tap, carefully remove it and prepare the area for the new installation.

Step 2: Mark the Installation Points

  1. Position the Tap: Hold the tap against the wall at the desired height. Use a spirit level to ensure it's perfectly horizontal.
  2. Mark the Fixing Points: Mark the wall through the mounting holes on the tap or the mounting plate, if one is used.

Step 3: Drill and Secure the Mounting Plate

  1. Drill Holes: Drill holes at the marked points, taking care to use the correct drill bit for your wall type (e.g., masonry, plasterboard).
  2. Insert Wall Plugs: If your wall requires them, insert appropriate wall plugs into the drilled holes.
  3. Secure the Mounting Plate: Attach the mounting plate to the wall using screws, ensuring it is firmly in place and level.

Step 4: Connect the Water Supply

  1. Measure and Cut Pipes: Measure and cut the water supply pipes to the correct length, ensuring they fit from the water source to the tap.
  2. Attach Pipes to the Tap: Wrap the threads of the tap's water inlets with Teflon tape to ensure a watertight seal. Connect the water supply pipes to the tap, tightening them with an adjustable wrench but not over-tightening.

Step 5: Install the Tap

  1. Mount the Tap: With the water supply pipes connected, carefully align the tap with the mounting plate and secure it according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Seal the Base: Apply a thin bead of silicone sealant around the base of the tap where it meets the wall to prevent water from seeping behind it.

Step 6: Final Checks and Testing

  1. Turn On the Water Supply: Slowly turn the water supply back on and check for any leaks around the connections.
  2. Test the Tap: Turn the tap on and off several times, checking for smooth operation and ensuring there are no leaks.
