    etch should think so, mate. Bond the etch back to the towel rail, the legs of the bath, the bath itself and, the etch...

    I'm not a spark so not aware of bonding recommendations, but can someone tell me why on the houses that I work on do the sparks bond the bath legs that are attached to a fibre glass bath by means of plastic brackets and also the mains pipe to the toilet which is connected to a plastic ball valve?
    Is it nessecery?
