Before you spend your money it is wise to find
out as much as you can about your intended purchase. Failure to do so might
end up in tears.
Choosing the right shower
can be a torturous process. Not only will
you want to imprint your own style on your creation but you will probably
have to work to tight budgetary constraints. It pays to set out with some
sort of game plan, an idea of what you are endeavouring to create and how
much you intend to invest in your project.
Choose the style of shower you prefer
-for example, a minimalist walk-in shower enclosed only
by clear glass panels rather than doors? Or do you prefer a more
traditionally styled enclosure with a door? Does your shower room or
bathroom permit such style criteria? Maybe a wet room is more in keeping
with your vision. Take a good look around to glean ideas before you begin to
Leak free showers
One of the biggest issues over the years with showers over the years has been leaks.
Talk to most shower owners and they will probably have a story to tell. So
it is important to consider the integrity of your planned installation
before you begin otherwise you might be repeating the process sooner than
How leaks in showers begin
Of course there are glues, adhesives and grouts that are 'waterproof'
but remember buildings are living things - they shrink and swell with
warmth and cold as if to breath. So, your grout and adhesive might be
waterproof but after a while micro-porous cracks will develop where water
can seep and mildew can prosper. A seep may turn to a trickle, then you
discover a moist patch with the smell of dampness. Now it's too late. How
porous are your tiles?
Plan your shower installation carefully
Put as much thought and consideration into planning and you'll create something that you can
enjoy for years, something you can be proud to show your house guests.
Cutting corners could be a recipe for disaster
Quite frankly there's no substitute for quality. A cheap shower tray
may look like a bargain, but when it cracks or flexes and in turn breaks the
waterproof seal around it you will end up with a problem. Cheap fittings
will always look cheap. Having to buy something twice doesn't equate to a saving.
Having said that, if you buy smart you can obtain a quality product
at an advantageous price. That is where we hope to be of service.
Bargain price should not mean inferior product
All the products you will find on this website we consider to be quality
items. We simply won't deal with 'bucket shop' bargains. If we believe a
manufacturer's standards have dropped we will drop them - believe it we have! There is no need to peddle second rate rubbish, but
beware there are many who will.
Help is always at hand
Whatever you are trying to achieve or create we hope you will find
products on this site that will help you reach your goal. Best of all and unlike many other companies we welcome you to call
and discuss any aspect of your project, ask questions about shower products,
seek advice or guidance, or to simply find out what's out there that might
suit. Although we sell shower equipment we do NOT believe in 'hard sales'
so you won't be bothered by us (or anybody else) because you have
called. Whether you envisage a unique and trendy designer shower room or you
have special needs to cater for, don't hesitate to
call our friendly and helpful staff
without obligation. We look forward to
hearing from you.
