    Hi all,

    I'm looking to replace my bath, and I was recommended a Kalderwei Eurowa bath. I read that Kalderwei baths are manufactured in Germany, and are supposedly good quality. I suspect Eurowa is probably bottom of their range as it isn't even listed on their website, but I was recommended that from the Victoria Plumbing website.

    My other thought was a Trojan bath. Victoria Plumbing has just one Trojan Bath - the Trojan Granada II acrylic bath.

    I mention these two just because they are on Victoria Plumbing's website... which I suppose my fitter gets a trade discount from.

    Any thoughts on either of these two brands, anyone?
    Thanks in advance.

    Just because it says trade log- in please dont assume we get it any cheaper, we dont. .
    I am also very supprised they are selling decent branded baths , both are good , but just check the acrylic thickness especially if its a shower bath .

    Ah I see, thanks for helping to clarify @townfanjon@townfanjon. One of the fitters said he can get various trade discounts, I (mistakenly) assumed Victoria Plumbing would be included.

    What is the minimum thickness I should be looking for in acrylic baths? It is a shower bath I'm looking for.
    Thanks in advance

    Eurowa baths are good. They come in a couple of different thicknesses. They are steel, you can have grips, anti slip etc as add ons. We put a couple in last year and all customers happy. They are good value for money.

    Hello Dbas,

    I would recommend that You go for a `Supersteel` Bath and I recommend Bette baths which are manufactured in Germany.

    I have one of these Bette Supersteel baths in my own Home and they are FAR superior to a `normal` / inexpensive Steel bath - the steel is thicker and the enamelling is also of a superior quality on Bette baths.

    However - with Bathrooms almost invariably `you get what you pay for` - and Bette Supersteel baths are not `Cheap` - either in quality of manufacture or price.

    Here is a link to a Bette baths Supplier / one example which is heavily discounted at present - £287.00 off RRP:

    Bette SET Rectangular Super Steel Bath 1600 x 750mm - 3660 000 [Code No.]

    This is longer and larger than a standard sized Bath - the wider section to accommodate a Showering area - but note there are no Tap holes.

    There are a lot of Bette baths to choose from regarding Size and Shape if you search around.

    Chris
