HDB Bathtubs Singapore

Looking for a bathtub for use in your HDB? Unsure of which bathtubs qualify, and which would fit into your bathroom space? Read on for more information.

What We Do

We sell Bathtubs designed specifically for the contemporary Singapore HDB bathroom

What is a HDB Bathtub?

Most HDBS do not come equipped with bathtubs. Instead, it is the condominiums, the terrace houses, and the bungalows that have pre-installed bathtubs. After all, these landed properties usually consist of large bathroom spaces that allow big and spacious bathtubs to be installed. 

But this does not mean you can’t get your very own bathtub if you live in a HDB. In fact, many HDB homeowners like yourselves have gotten themselves a beautiful and luxurious bathtub, all within a reasonable budget. It’s really not complicated at all. You just have to follow the rules

There are rules?

Yes, there are! Indeed, HDB has its own sets of unique rules and regulations about the type of fixtures allowed in this kind of apartment. For the most part, they aren’t very strict. That is the reason why you can buy any sofa or bed for your living room and bedroom without consulting any other authorities. For bathtubs, however, HDB do impose a few policies. This is largely due to concerns that a big bathtub might not be the most water-efficient. 

Below, you can find out in details the rules governing bathtubs specifically.

However, if you don’t feel like reading them, don’t worry. That’s what we are here for. At SingaporeBathtubs, we have curated a special collection of HDB Bathtubs that meet all the requirements. This means that any bathtub that you get from us are designed specifically for use in a HDB bathroom. Not only that, we have also included only bathtubs that we believe can fit into your homes. After all, HDBs don’t necessary have the widest bathroom space. As such, an ideal bathtub is one that is between 1000mm and 1500mm in length.

Value-For-Money

Why fork out additional money for features you don’t need? Whilst our bathtubs are fully customisable with different add-ons, you probably don’t need the extra LED lights or the remote-controlled heat sensor. At SingaporeBathtubs, you get to choose exactly the kind of bathtub you need. That makes them value-for-money. Why pay thousands of dollars for something that you don’t see yourself using?

HDB Guarantee

When you get a HDB bathtub we us, we guarantee you that they’ll be fully qualified for use in your bathroom. No nasty surprises half a month later, when authorities come knocking on your door, and you realise that the bathtub you get are actually not quite legal. At SingaporeBathtubs, you get a pleasant shopping experience, as we’ll make everything work out just for you.

Bungalow

Address: Jalan Karia, S588529

Bathtub: Everlyn Whirlpool Bathtub (1500mm x 1500mm x 600mm)

“Very good bathtub. The white and black colour suited my bathroom design. Thanks to Andy and team, able to have a really nice bathroom. The air jets and water jets work really well. I plan to use it everyday. My daughter loves this, and was very excited when everything was finally done and fixed into place. Highly recommend this company if you ever need to get anything bathtub related done. Good and efficient service”

Bathtub: Charlotte Whirlpool Bathtub
(1610mm x 755mm x 600mm)

“Had moved into this condo a few months ago and settled in nicely but the Mrs. wanted a jetted bathtub. Decided to surprise her by doing this alone, and I found Andy and SingaporeBathtubs to help me. He came by on a day I knew she was working to help with the site measurements, and gave me tips on which bathtub she would like best. One month later and everything was in order. Bathtub was delivered early in the morning, and when she came home, she was so suprised she couldn’t stop screaming for a good minute. She was so happy with this bathtub.”

– Rajesh Kar, Nov’20

Terrace House

Address: Jalan Antoi, S809406

Bathtub: Moscow Whirlpool Bathtub
(1710mm x 755mm x 600mm)

“Andy gave us a free upgrade to include these LED lights. We originally wanted just a massage tub, but after calculating the costs of everything, decided that the air jet and water jet is most worth. That was when Andy told him that he could give me another upgrade to LED lights. Was really happy with the result. The bathtub looks really good at night, when the room is dark and the lights really shine by themselves. Definitely a good purchase”

Regulations for HDBS and Condos

Below are the detailed rules and regulations drawn out by HDB regarding bathtubs

Weight

First of all, let us address the most important worry that most HDB owners may have as it is an apartment unit; what exactly is the stipulated weight limit on HDB homes?

This section will go through the HDB Weight Regulations according to HDB Directive. 

Condominium regulations differ from one to another and you should check with your Condo Council before buying for bathtub. However, the regulations for Condos are usually similar to the HDB Regulations. As such they are grouped together under this section.

 

The bottom line is, for Bathtubs in HDB Homes:
No More than 150kg for the bathtub alone.

 

You can find this directive at this link under others.

Your bathtub is classified as an ‘equipment’ and falls under this regulation. If you select a lightweight bathtub made of Acrylic or Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic, they usually weigh under 40kg and will not pose an issue. However, heavier bathtubs such as Cast-Iron or Marble can weigh above 150kg and are not an option.

 

Total weight allowed inclusive of water and person: 400kg

 

Apart from the sole weight of the equipment, we need to consider other aspects such as the weight of users, as well as water weight.

All these factors when added up together, must be within the 400kg weight limit.

For illustration purposes, we have selected our

1) Small bathtub

2) Medium bathtub

3) Large bathtub

to show you how each of them falls within the 400kg weight limit.

Example 1

Bathtub: Beatrix
Measurements: 1100mm x 750mm x 550mm
Type: Soaking Tub
Bathtub Material: Acrylic

Calculation Breakdown: 80kg (User Weight) + 100kg (Water Weight) + 40kg (Bathtub + Faucet Weight) = 220kg

Is it within the 400kg Maximum Limit? : ✅ Yes!

Beatrix Prestige (Customise options)

Example 2

Bathtub: Everlyn
Measurements: 1320mm x 1320mm x 650mm
Type: Corner Tub
Bathtub Material: Acrylic

Calculation Breakdown: 80kg x 2 (User Weight) + 100kg (Water Weight) + 40kg (Bathtub Weight) = 300kg

Is it within the 400kg Maximum Limit? : ✅ Yes!

EVERLYN® Whirlpool Bathtub

Example 3

Bathtub: Sydney 
Measurements: 1800mm
Type: Soaking Tub
Bathtub Material: Acrylic

Calculation Breakdown: 80kg (User Weight) + 100kg (Water Weight) + 40kg (Bathtub Weight) = 220kg

Is it within the 400kg Maximum Limit? : ✅ Yes!

Plumbing and Drainage Regulations

Usually, piping connecting the bathtub drain and your bathroom’s drain, makes use of PVC pipes. However, if you would like to opt for copper or stainless steel pipes, it would be best to seek advise from your contractor.

If you are considering having your water pipes to be concealed under your flooring, the floor slab cannot be tampered with and has to remain intact. However, this is discouraged as water leakage to the floor below may occur if the work is not properly done.

Keep in mind that all piping matters should only be handled by a PUB licensed plumber, such that all works adhere to PUB’s requirements.

Drain & Pipe Placement

Flooring and Tiling

When it comes to flooring and tiling matters it is also an area of consideration, given that depending on the method of bathtub installation, it may eventually affect ground works.

HDB regulations state, the Maximum Height for Raising Floor Area: 50mm in Thickness

Apart from that, the hollow allowance beneath the bathtub known as the Void Area, cannot be filled with cement mortar or other materials, and has to be kept empty.

In order for future maintenance to be possible, an inspection opening should be made available, as well as the existence of weep holes.

https://www.hdb.gov.sg/cs/infoweb/residential/living-in-an-hdb-flat/renovation/sanitary-and-plumbing/-gas-works

New Home Restrictions

For home owners who have just received the keys to their flats, if you are considering a bigger bathtub (maximum length 1800mm) and yet your bathroom is too small, please be mindful of these following restrictions on your new home.

You will only be able to Enlarge your Bathroom after 3 years has passed from the block completion date.

Long Bath(Bigger Bathtubs) Restrictions

If you are thinking of extending your bathroom, just to accommodate a Long Bath (bigger bathtubs) which ranges from 1800mm, 1900mm and larger, unfortunately, it is not allowed.

Installation Process

Now that we have a wider knowledge on the varying installation methods available for bathtubs, there are also different accompanying installation processes that we should consider.
A general procedure for the delivery and installation process goes something like this:

Step 1: Singapore Bathtubs will be in-charge of the Doorsite Delivery – where your bathtub will be delivered to your doorstep

Step 2: The Contractor will then takeover from here and start Uncrating the Bathtubs on the spot.

Step 3 & 4: The Bathtub will then be transported into your bathroom and manoeuvred into the designated bathtub space, accounted by the contractor.

Step 5: Pertaining to drainage works, the contractor will then hook up the bathtub drain to the bathroom’s drainage outlet via PVC pipes, and run some tests.

Should you request for your piping to be even more neat and nicely done up, it is possible to cut a hole in the bathtub, in order for the excess of the hose to pass through.

Drop-In Bathtub Installation

Drop-in bathtubs generally do not have any finished sides and only embody the core of  what a bathtub is, otherwise known as a tub frame (bathtub shell). Before the frame/shell can be dropped it, an existing skeleton needs to be installed beforehand. As such, this method becomes more complicated and costly. Nonetheless, should you prioritise your bathtub to consummately correspond with your bathroom, you can give this technique a go.

Remember to take note of the above mentioned regulations regarding the weight limits and the flooring limitations, when constructing the pre-structure for the bathtub to be fitted into.

Floor slabs should not exceed 150kg per square meter, and the raised flooring should not exceed 50mm in thickness.

Freestanding Bathtub Installation

Freestanding Bathtubs are standalone tubs that rely on its framework to hold itself up. There are legs beneath the bathtub that will be adjusted such that a gap between the bathtub base and floor will exists. This gap is usually around 2cm.

Sometimes, a support structure is required to give the bathtub more foundation, which is otherwise known as the range of Clawfoot Bathtubs. These Clawfoot bathtubs have Clawfoot legs, which are studier than the average bathtub legs, but still serve the same purpose of holding the bathtub up and maintaining that 2cm gap between the floor and the bottom of the bathtub.

Alcove and Corner Bathtub Installation

The way that Alcove and Corner bathtubs are installed, are rather similar to that of Freestanding bathtubs such that they do not require any before hand structural work to be done. They are usually installed in the corner of the bathroom to maximise space and mounted against the wall with cement, or sealed with silicon to prevent water from seeping through to achieve a clean and finished look.

Whirlpool Bathtub Installation

For users who wish to have a jacuzzi installed in their home, it has to be purchased ready- made, as  construction of a hot tub using bricks or hollow bricks is not permitted.

In regards to the installation matters, the jacuzzi has to be installed within the intended bathroom space allocated by HDB, and the floor slab that it is installed upon should not be tampered with. The entire weight of the bathtub, water, motor and any other equipment should be kept under 400kg (refer to above bathtub weight regulations). Also, be aware that because the jacuzzi involves hot water, proper water drainage has to be ensured.

Getting A HDB Bathtub

Have you always been intimidated with getting a bathtub because you live in a HDB?

You don’t have to be!

Divan Bed Frame Singapore Bed with storage space SingaporeHomeFurniture

If Only I Had A Bathtub…

Maybe it was at a fancy hotel that you saw a bathtub that made you go “Wow!” Or perhaps it was at one of your friends’ house that you were instantly drawn in by how great the bathtub looks in the bathroom. And you think to yourself, “If only I lived in a bigger house…”

So What?

So you live in a HDB. So what? Not all of us are blessed with huge bathrooms. The majority of us stay in HDB and are seemingly constrained by the limited space that we have to work with. Yet, with a little creativity and inventive tweak of space, you too can have the very own bathtub and overall bathroom design that would be the envy of many of your friends.

Find Your Bathtub!

At Singapore Bathtubs, we have an array of bathtubs, from the fun and flamboyant types to the classy and elegant looking ones, you would have no problem finding one that would fit right in your own home.

3 Types of  HDB Bathtubs

These are the three most common types of bathtubs found in HDB bathrooms.

Standalone Bathtubs:

The most fuss-free option. Standalone bathtubs require no installation, thereby saving you installation costs. The moment you receive it in your bathroom, is the moment it can be used. All you have to do is to connect the drainage pipe between the bathtub drain and the bathroom floor drain.

R

Built In Bathtubs:

Built-in bathtubs are dropped into a surround which serves as the supporting structure for the tub. This is usually handled by a contractor. When done properly, the elegant looking bathtub bathtub gives off a luxurious and elegant look, instantly transforming it into your bathroom centrepiece.

Alcove Bathtubs:

Considered a hybrid between built-in bathtubs and standalone bathtubs, alcove bathtubs can give off the classy look of drop-in bathtub whilst requiring no additional installation. The side aprons serve as its supporting structure, providing the tub with the necessary stability to stand on its own.

Feel the difference.

Should I Get a Standalone, Built-in, or Alcove Bathtub?

It really depends on your space allocation and budget.

If bathroom space is your one big constraint, then we advice getting a built-in bathtub. They are the most space-efficient option, and can even have the effect of enlarging your bathroom space when designed properly.

If you are under an extremely tight budget, then we recommend going for a standalone bathtub. With this bathtub, you have to do 0 additional installation works. It’s a simple plug in and play. You get the bathtub, and it can be put to use immediately. 

Alcove bathtubs are good as a hybrid option, if you want something that is both affordable and space-efficient. 

 How MUCH DOES IT COST to install a bathtub in an HDB flat?

As mentioned, if the freestanding bathtub is what you are going for, then the installation adds to a grand total of $0. If instead, you are going for a built-in bathtub, it can cost between $250-$1,000. This depends on the type of work involved, and if a third party interior designing firm is involved. 

Is it difficult to maintain a bathtub?

Not really. Scrubbing your bathtub on a regular basis, about once a month, would be more than enough to keep your bathtub clean. It’s really simple too. All you need is a bucket of water, some cleaning solution, and a soft sponge.
