Pros: looks good
Cons: impossible not to soak the bathroom floor, obvious design fault
"As the others have said, there is no way to adjust the direction of the shower head and so the bathroom floor gets soaked every time. Very disappointed - expected better from Wickes."

Pros: looks lovely.
Cons: is a nuisance, creates pools of water all over the bathroom, waste of money
"This product has a design fault. The shower does have different height levels but it only has one position for the angle of water ejection. It needs a swivel device to alter the angle of the water. As it is the water goes straight down the length of the bath. Is it possible to buy an angled holder to fit on the pole? This product has spoiled the idea of a shower."

"The bathroom gets soaked everytime you turn the shower on because you cannot direct the showerhead downwards. The water goes horizontally across the bath.
Wickes are correct to say that it goes up and down the riser, but its directional spray we require.
Overall a very disappointment product"

Pros: stylish
Cons: unable to angle head
"I have just taken delivery of this sorry piece of equipment. When attached to the riser rail the shower head only sits in an unmovable bracket. This was fine if you wanted a light shower, but for hair washing when you need the power, the spray goes al ll over the bathroom even over the shower screen. We have had to add a shower rail and curtain to the bathroom to be able to use it. Not a good shower system, although looks stylish."

Response from Wickes:By Wickes Bathroom Team18 August 2010
The shower head does have a height adjustable function on the riser rail, so it can be moved up and down the pole.
