Swirl Essential Dual Lever Bath / Shower Mixer Bathroom Tap
Looks so Pretty non - Function
This is really a very attractive looking set that I bought for my new tenants. However, when it came to fitting do be aware of the following:
I was expecting for it be used as a wall mounted shower, but ...
1. The hose is 1.5 meters and only reaches to shoulder level and I am only 5'3". (Expense of new 2 m hose required)
2. The bracket it comes with points the shower head toward the wall so you can't stand under it to shower and wash your hair, and will likely end up with water all over your floor or down the back of your bath and bathroom walls if your silicone is not spot on. (Expense of new bracket/riser rail now also added on).
3. Of course because I had already fitted the taps and shower mixer before discovering the above there was no way of returning.
In all this product would be okay if you want to sit in the bath and wash your hair with it, but if you want to use it as a proper shower unit be prepared to spend a lot of extra money and have the aggravation of trying to find a shower riser rail that actually works !!
A shame - poor design and for a little bit of extra effort Swirl could have a very smart, good value and functional product.
