You have finally decided after weighing things up to buy a steam shower cabin. With steam shower now being one of the most desirable items in the bathroom there is today numerous manufacturer on the market trying to convince you to buy there goods. But with each of this manufacturers come the claim that they are the original, the biggest and best, but how do you know?? See this walk in showers.
How long is the warranty for the unit, what does it cover and who covers it??
Read the small print. Questions like these you have to get to the bottom of. Many companies try to fob you off with a 12 month warranty which is not the best. You would expect a cheap toaster from walmart costing a few dollars or pounds to last 12 months, but I'm spending thousands on a steam shower unit, and not a toaster so do I really fancy it going wrong after 13 months, 18 months or even 24 months??
In reality a 5 year warranty is what you need to be looking for. This is not to say that the shower will only last this long, But it does reflect a little on the quality of the items and the faith the manufacture has in its reliability.
Which leads us to Question 2
How long has the company been in the steam shower business
Theres will always be a younger faster model of you in the wings looking at you thinking I want what he has and maybe he will work that extra bit to get it. But you've been there seen it and have got the t-shirt and the same could be said for your shower company. Its probably a good assumption to think that a company that has been around for many years has resolved and fine tuned more issues than anyone thats new to the game and that also they have stood the test of time for a reason. Can you image even if you did get a five year warranty with the unit that when you did come to make a claim these was no company there to make it to!!
Question 3, 4, 5 and 6
Ask everything and expect an answer. Its reasonable to expect a good company that is invested with its products, and with this its reasonable to expect that even the phone operative which ever one you get should be able to get an answer to all of even your most technical questions.
If a company cannot help you in the first instance, can they help you when your having a real issue?
The big 3 companies are Aqualusso, Insignia and Aquaplus and you cant really go wrong if you can find a company that sells these products. Thats not to say you cannot find a good shower from else where, but outside of these big 3 you should really be looking to do your homework first View this blog.
