Questions & Answers
Tom Asked :Does the Kaldwei Classic duo bath come with a side panel...Is there a picture of this anywhere?
lesley Asked :Is it possible to drill holes in the centre of this bath for the taps or do the taps have to come out from the wall?
Answered By QS Team :
Hi Lesley, You need special tools to drill any Steel bath which most plumbers do not carry as they are expensive and need the skill to drill holes in a steel bath. For bath which do not have pre-drilled holes, you will need to buy wall mounted bath taps. there is a large selection on our website. Hope this helps. Regards, QS Team
Charlotte Asked :I am interested in buying this bath we have always had a acrylic bath. I like to lay down in the bath and someone mentioned its colder in a steel bath than a acrylic, Is this correct ?
Answered By Eleanor :
Hi. I think perhaps in theory, but from my experience I have this item (my first steel one), my husband and I love the quality, and we have not noticed any real difference Re heat.
Answered By Jayne :
Bought this bath two years ago and have been delighted with it. Its deep, long and well-made. I have had both steel and acrylic baths in the past and have never noticed that the water temperature differs between the two materials. Also another plus is steel baths last longer than acrylic ones as they dont warp or crack. I hope this helps.
Answered By Paul :
My wife is a big bath fan and spends ages in it and has never noticed it gets colder because it is steel. Having had both types, I would never go back to plastic and ask yourself, why do all the expensive hotels have steel baths? - because they are better and feel more luxurious
Answered By Roderick :
Technical yes, in reality no. If the loss of heat concerns you and as the bath is built in, pack some insulation around it when fitting. Good solid product unlike acrylic baths.
Answered By Ingrid :
That might have been true with oldfashioned baths, but I have never felt too cold taking a bath in this one - quality product, you wont regret it. In fact, it feels nicer than an acrylic one. A lot nicer
Answered By Sam :
It may cool a little quicker but If your bath is full then I dont think it feels colder. I f you have shallow baths then yes the sides can feel cold. the main advantage is that it does not scratch so easy to clean and looks good for a long time
Answered By John :
Definitely correct. I dont have baths but my wife does and she confirms this. Not to mention the bath is sturdier than acrylic. Having the filler in the middle also means you can lie at either end. Hope that helps.
Answered By Janie :
I think the feel of this item is much nicer than that of an acrylic. Yes it is colder, but it heats up nicely as you fill it with water so you do not notice. When lying down in the bath, you just need to swish the water up a couple of times to warm it before leaning back if its been a really cold day.
Answered By Estelle :
Hi, I do not think its an issue regarding whether it strikes cold as everything strikes cold when you first lean back. However, just check the length of the base of the bath. I have found that it comes up a little short because it is double ended (even tho technically I bought a longer bath). I I sit in it my feet touch one end and I am in a reclined sitting position (I am 5ft 8"). Good brand tho and happy with it. QS were a good company to buy from. No complaints from me.
Answered By John :
no once you have run the hot water into the bath it heats up unless you like lying in the bath and then running the water in which seems a little odd but whatever floats your boat
Answered By John :
The water loses heat quicker, so if you like a lie in the bath you will find yourself continually " topping up" to keep it warm.
