Budget large bore shower hose
22 Apr 2015
By HEaT
, oxfordshire
" Bought this product to demonstrate to teh customer that they didnt need a new shower - just the correct hose for a low pressure tank fed shower, rather than the 8mm unit they had fitted.
went for the budget option in case they still wanted a new shower installed but they were happy with the improved water flow and it looked ok . They may update to a better finish in future, but only when this one has had its day. Its a bit stiff when new, being of plastic construction, but it may get easier as the kinks straighten out.
Cant comment on reliability - but there isnt much to go wrong on a piece of pipe.

Garden hose in your shower
18 May 2013
By Alamo
, London
" PVC shower hose with black/chrome stripe design. You will need to run your hot water through the hose to make it more pliable although I still found it difficult to keep the shower head to face the right way. It may become a bit more pliable with continuous use. I had to find a spare rubber washer as one end was still leaking. Good water flow and reliability might be good due to its "tough" construction.

Non standard size
6 Jan 2015
By Scruffboy
, Bedford
" The quality is great for the price and the plastic coating makes it much easier to keep clean than other coil hoses. However the ends are not a standard size or taper, so won't fit the shower head holder on the rail supplied with most electric showers. Make sure you check how it compares to your rail before buying.

Disappointing
8 Apr 2015
By Jayde

" I purchased this to replace my current hose which was leaking. This one leaks too but in a different place. I looked into possibly exchanging the washer only to discover that it doesn't have one. This may well be the reason it leaks. Don't waste your time. "

Who let this reach production?
7 Dec 2014
By Andrew1963
, Worcestershire
" Overall it does what is says on the tin. But the tin doesn't say "fits standard shower brackets". And that's the problem. Every shower hose I've bought in the past twenty years has a near enough standard taper on the end of hose fittings, so that it fit any normal shower bracket. This one doesn't, it has some daft ridged collar that fits no bracket I've yet seen.
I'm sure this would fit a bath shower mixer set that uses a cradle to hold the shower head, and in that scenario you'd have no problems, but for any normal bracket-mounted shower head look elsewhere. "

Not as described
17 Oct 2014
By Handyman9
, UK
" Don't know who on earth measured the bore on this thing but I can guarantee you it isn't 16mm, it's more like about 8mm at most. Restricted the flow of water compared to the old hose, nowhere near as good.
Furthermore, it doesn't even come with washers so you'll need to keep the ones from an old hose or get some elsewhere.
Lastly! The nuts on this thing have a silly serrated ring thing on them, which means it won't fit in to the standard Mira shower head holder without flopping around loosely.
Complete waste of time. Had to buy a second one, which WAS actually 16mm. "

Leaks
16 Feb 2014
By AndyMax
, Bristol
" It really is like a plastic hose. Not a problem though. I thought it was great value for money until I used it. The so called standard connectors do not fit my Hansgrohe mixer. Well, they do, but even fully screwed in it's obvious that the female connectors a little too wide for the male, and allow water through. "

Totally unusable
22 Oct 2011
By Rhombus

" I fitted this shower hose for a customer and it just would not stay in the holder it was not flexible so just kept falling out! it may be usable after running hot water through it for a while but a metal pipe is much more usable. "
