Clawfoot tubs are a stunning and unique fixture. They add an air of luxury to any bathroom. For homeowners considering the installation of a new clawfoot tub, it will also be important to purchase supply lines that will run water to the tub’s faucet.
Kingston Brass offers a vast selection of bath supply lines to meet any homeowner’s needs. From slender closet supply styles to freestanding and ornate, there is a supply line style to meet any need.
During the process of choosing a supply line, the following tips will help make the purchase the right one.
Determine Which Style Is Needed
Not all supply lines are the same. In fact, there are a variety of styles to choose from. These supply lines run from the rough cut in your floor to the faucet on your tub. For this reason, when choosing a supply line, it needs to match the faucet configuration as well as fit the rough cut where the supply line will attach to the water line.
Before you can purchase a supply line for your tub, you will need to determine what style is required for your setup. The following are all common types of supply lines:
- Straight: These straight pipes are usually paired with a deck-mount faucet.
- Single offset: A single offset supply line features one bend at the top of the line and pairs with wall-mounted and hand shower faucets.
- Double offset: Double offset lines feature two bends at the top of the line. These also fit with many tub wall-mounted regular and hand shower faucets.
- Freestanding: Perhaps the most unique style, this supply line works with tubs that have no faucet drillings.
Choose the Right Finish
Once you have determined what style of supply line is needed, it is time to pick out the right finish. Supply lines can be purchased to match existing fixtures or to revamp the room to feature a new style. Common finish styles include polished chrome, oil rubbed bronze, polished brass, brushed nickel, and antique brass.
