Swirl Round Shower System Contemporary Chrome
Design isn't great
After reading the reviews i purchased this shower as it looked great and had everything i needed.
After fitting i find it doesn't feel as secure as i would expect due to not being able to tignten the screw at the top fully as you have to rotate it as inserting the pipe. Also putting the 'rain shower head as high as possible it is still very close to my head when standing under it and i am not exactly tall (5ft 10), i couldn't fit it any higher as there wouldn't have been enough room to insert the pipe ant rotate, also having the rain shower head as high as possible the short hose pipe doesn't fit between the bottom of the pipe and my mixer tap (not a problem i have ordered another flexible pipe the correct length).
The short pipe is described ar 50cm when i measured it is only 40cm of pipe then fittings.
overall i like the unit and the pressure is great from my combi, but they could do with looking at the design as i think most people would like to be able to tighten up the holders once the pipe is in position.

Not fit for purpose
Shower system was brought to be fitted in a new wet room. The syetem is impossible to fit to the wall, with the fittings supplied and instuctions provided.
If you follow the poor instructions provided you will never get the system to fit to the wall.
Only way to fit system is to deviate from the fitting instruction. You need to first fit the brackets supplied to the wall, fit the poor quality chrome brackets over the wall brackets, and then slide the shower bar in from the top, for which you need a floor to celling hight of over 4 meter, no celling at all or live in a castle.
Dont know how the others rated this product highly?? Im sure it works fine, but you need to first fit it to the wall.... good luck!!
I have returned the system back to screwfix. but have been left with two wholes in my bathroom wall.
Poorly designed, poor fitting instructions, poor quality fittings. OVERALL POOR POOR!!
Im just suprised screwfix have not withrawn the system or supplied better fittings with the sysytem.
DO NOT BUY!!!

I needed to change my bath for a shower and had used this type when away from home before.i read the other reviews and decided to but this one.It was so easy to fit it took me longer to gather my tools together than fitting it.From the first screw hole to working shower in about half an hour.
