Does the job, cheaply
26 Aug 2015
By
, West Midlands
" Easy to fit. Looks ok. Functions ok. Not certain how durable it will be as it is an "entry level" product, but at this price it doesn't have to last very long to pay for itself. As an interim fitting pending a longer term refurbishment its ideal. "

" Overall a good product however, the riser that holds the shower head seems a bit flimsy. Having 4 people in house of varying heights will see how long it lasts after constant adjustment. Easy to fit. "

Not the strongest, not too bad
6 Nov 2012
By
, Wilts
" Bought this to replace an old riser that had broken and liked the fact that the top bracket is free to move up and down the rail to match the old fixing height. Be aware that each bracket requires two screw holes side by side rather than the above and below configuration of my old rail but that may not be the same for you. I had hoped I would not have to drill more holes through the tiles but that didn't work out. The brackets did however cover the old holes so there is no visible mess. The brackets seem a little on the light side so I don't know how well they would handle kids tugging on the hose over time. It did the job for me and is still doing the job and it is a handy way to freshen up an old shower. "

Great Value - Looks Good
28 Mar 2012
By
, Essex
" Easy to fix up (important to me as a DIYer!)
Looks sleek and modern in our bathroom.
As this item is adjustable we could use the holes already drilled in the tile for a clean look with no nasty holes left showing or need for replacing a tile.
Would recommend - it looks nicer than one a relative purchased for over £40 from a DIY chain (and was definitely easier to assemble and install!) "

Shower riser
16 Aug 2012
By
, Norfolk
" Good design. For the money it is good value. More money spent may well get a more solid construction. Find the height adjuster a bit awkward but at the price acceptable. It is just to fill in for a while until refurb work or would have bought more expensive model with push button height adjuster.
Recommended for those who need a short term fix while waiting for new bathroom. "

" The product is nice looking, but unfortunately even with the adjustable bracket it didn't fit the existing screwholes so I had to drill new ones. Nor does it fit my existing showerhead, which falls out every time I turn the water on. So now I need a new shower head as well grrrrr. "

Poor quality
9 Oct 2015
By
, West Sussex
" Two hole fixing each end so not necessarily good as a replacement. Limited length so again not good as a replacement. Poor method of securing riser in fitting - groove in metal tube pushed over plastic extension in one fixing which has to be the bottom one. If not fully secure the riser can pop out. Chrome cap on brackets is a push fit and secured by a screw which also hold the chrome bracket for the riser. "

" the rail is a bit flimsy and if your shower has decent pressure the ratchet mechanism that secures the shower head will move back, this also limits the angle of adjustment. Overall I don't expect this will be a long term solution. "

Not fit for purpose
25 Apr 2014
By
, Essex
" The problem with this rail is that the it is secured to the wall by two plastic mushroom shaped posts. The shafts of the posts are hollow and they both have slots let onto them at the base to recieve a retaining screw. The result is that the post is very weak at the point where the stress is greatest. Mine lasted about a week before the first post broke. I don't have kids at home and we didn't use the riser roughly. It might be that I've just been unlucky but my advice is buy something else. "

Complete rubbish
11 Nov 2013
By
, Worcester
" Other than the riser this product is completely plastic and fits together poorly. The clamp for the handset will not adjust properly so the spray pattern cannot be adjusted to face downwards. Its only redeeming feature is the flexibility for positioning the top bracket, but this is little compensation when you realise the product is not fit for purpose and have to take it back, leaving you with an extra 4 holes in your bathroom wall. Great for tradesmen who can fit and forget a cheap and nasty product, leaving the customer to wonder how on earth this is supposed to work... otherwise, spend about £25 or £30 online and get a solid product that works.

Looks nice but poor quality
6 Sep 2013
By
, Hebrides
" This product looks great but that is where it ends. Very flimsy feel to shower holder cannot see it lasting long. Screw covers are a loose fit and need silicone to stop the falling away. supplied fixings are a waste of time, where do manufacturers obtain these plugs from??? must have stocked up in the 60s. I cant see that i would ever buy another swirl product. "
