Excellent value for money
24-Jul-2013
By

"I picked this up from Screwfix for £7.00 and was cheaper than buying separately a new shower head and hose, which is all I needed. Simple 1 mode shower head which works fine. The only criticism I can offer is that there are 2 kinks in the hose and because its rubber coated I am struggling to get these out, pretty much like a garden hose, and that affects aesthetics slightly and also the pressure from the shower head slightly. I did not use the brackets or the rail as I already had one in place but they look standard. Very happy overall."

"I was after a new riser for the shower and this fitted the bill perfectly. A quality product for a great price. Replaced with the same screw holes as the last riser. I would recommend this product to any buyer."

"Had one of these for many years. It never seems to wear out, cleans up spotlessly, can't rust and does the job perfectly. For such a low price this is an absolute bargain!"

"I was after a shower head clamp untill i saw this complete set including the clamp at such a low price i had to try, well i was not dissapointed the rail was a direct fit did'nt have to re-drill any holes, everything works perfectly and looks very nice when fitted, the saying is you get what you pay for in this case i got more than what i paid for, very happy and would recommend the shower kit.
I ordered this for collection at my local store collected 30 minutes after ordering could not be easier well done Screwfix.

Better Than Anticipated
19-Oct-2012
By
, Essex
"Was going to buy just the riser rail, but for the sake of an extra quid and it was in stock, decided to get this. The fitting seems sturdy enough, more than I was expecting for the money, the hose is junk though, silver plastic wrapped around hose pipe, leaky and doesn't hang correctly once up. There is no mini shelf in this unit even though the photo shows one."

Picture misleading
23-Jun-2013
By
, Southport
"There's the old saying that you get what you pay for but in this instance you don't even get that. The kit doesn't come with the soap shelf and in my pack there wasn't even the screws, wall plugs or washers. Fortunately I only needed this kit for the riser so was able to use existing holes and screws otherwise I would have returned it. The whole thing is a bit cheap and plasticky, and fortunately I didn't need the shower head or hose which are very basic, but the riser bit does the job for £7. Just check all the components are in the box before you leave the shop."

Cheap
02-May-2011
By
, Reading
"It was very cheap but the quality wasn't good enough (very plasticky) for the abuse a rented house will give it so I took it back and exchanged for a better quality model. This one is excellent value (£20 swirl)."

Check The Box Before Leaving!!
11-Dec-2012
By
, Berkshire
"I can't agree with the earlier review. Check the shower hose before leaving - it may save you the return trip I had to make!!
The shower hose is very cheap construction comprising a thin metal band wound around the rubber pipe. When stuffed inside a packing box I feel is too small it becomes damaged. The replacement was better, but not 100%.
I only actually needed the riser rail - which did compliment the bathroom well. If I had wanted a complete set I would have returned it and purchased a different one."

Don't waste your money
30-Nov-2012

, Wolverhampton
"The hose is ridged and is squashed flat the way it is packed. I took it back and another was checked but was the same. Just no flexibility in the hose. Spent another £4 on another Swirl set (product no. 89437) which was excellent."
