Ok as usual er indoors changed her mind.
We are in the process of refurbing a downstairs bathroom, and it was
decided that the old rectangular shower enclosure would be thrown away,
and instead she wanted a wall built to make an alcove type shower. As
expected the wind has changed direction and she no longer wants an
alcove, but wants a rectangular enclosure again! To make matters worse
she has turned up today with a "bargain". She has bought half of an
enclosure from B&Q for £20. All that is in the box is the fixings, and
the pivot door. It is missing the wall chanels, and the plain glass wall
section. Is it possible to buy these anywhere on their own at a
reasonable price? I have had a look and cannot seem to find the wall
chanel anywhere, surely it is a fairly standard component, I am
obviously not using the right name.
After further questioning she paid £20 for the door(normal price for all
of it is £599), so she is forgiven if I cannot use it. Although it might
be possible to buy a cheaper enclosure and use the wall channel from that.
I love the way the dear ladies force you to spend several days and
hundreds of pounds to ensure that they can use the 'bargain price' crap
they picked up that is still worse quality and more expensive than you
could get it at the BM's...that cheap bath..now more or less encased in
car body filler to keep it from flexing..that loo cistern that needed a
complete new valve assembly to get it to work..the list..is endless.

You are soo right, they just don't get the idea of buying the right tool
for the job, instead they just see you wasting the cost of a new hairdo
or handbag when you could be spending 10 times longer codjing something
together. Granted that must have tool will often then sit on the shelf
with all the other specialised (power)tools, rather like their
collection of shoes or handbags.....
But in this case I have some sympathy, how can the sheds/retailers
justify Â£599 for a glass panel and a glass door and some aluminium
Can anyone point me in the direction of a 900mm rectangular shower
enclosure with a pivot door for a reasonable price?
