        Is it recommended to provide under bath ventilation to a bath hob enclosure?
        It seems to no longer be standard proceedure to do so, is there a reason for this and why did it used to be a standard detail?
        Any one got any ideas?

            It would help if you indicated from where you come from. In NSW there used to be a regulation (about 30years ago) where the under floor of the bath had to be grade to the outside with a 1/2″ pipe thru the bath wall & ventilators in the bath enclosure. I suppose in the lower temperature climates there is a tendency for condensation to drip off the bath & maybe even needing ventilation, I have not seen this required for 30 odd years so it is not a issue.

              Not down this way either nowdays maybe it applied when we were fitting enamelled steel baths in the cooler climate areas – which is certainly not New Zealand even though we are the closest Nation to the South Pole!!!!
