Tony Asked :
Hello, can this bath be fitted with a waste and overflow other than Kaldewei?
We can confirm that other manufacturers' waste and overflows can be fitted if you find the correct size. You will need an extended version, as the overflow is on the side of the bath rather than at one end.
Tom Asked :
Does the Kaldewei Classic duo bath come with a side panel? Is there a picture of this anywhere?
This bath does not come with a side panel.
lesley Asked :
Is it possible to drill holes in this bath's centre for the taps, or do the taps have to come out from the wall?
It would be best if you had 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. You will need to buy wall-mounted bath taps for baths that do not have pre-drilled holes.
Charlotte Asked :
I am interested in buying this bath; we have always had an acrylic bath. I like to lie down in the bath, and someone mentioned it's colder in a steel bath than in an acrylic.
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 myself, why do all the expensive hotels have steel baths? - because they are better and feel more luxurious.
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 in Reheat.
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 old-fashioned baths, but I have never felt too cold taking a bath in this one - quality product, you won't regret it. In fact, it feels nicer than an acrylic one. A lot nicer
Answered By Peter Fill the bath with hot water!
Answered By Sam It may cool a little quicker, but If your bath is full, then I don't think it feels colder. If 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 don't 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. I hope that helps.
Answered By Adrian I never noticed it to be a problem.
Answered By Janie I think the feel of this item is much nicer than that of 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 it's been a really cold day.
Answered By Estelle Hi, I do not think it's 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 sit in it, my feet touch one end, and I am in a reclined sitting position (I am 5ft 8"). It is a good brand, though, and happy with it. QS were an excellent 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.
