Purchased this bath when renovating our house. I wanted acrylic but also wanted it to feel strong and solid enough, the carronite finish is definitely worth it. Comfortable, nice looking bath and delivery and service was good.
If you are looking for a plain bath, this is a great model. The outer borders are narrower than most, meaning the usage area is bigger. It is also deeper and the square back makes it more comfortable than a curved back.
Excellent bath arrived very quickly, however the free pop up waste was damaged beyond use. I did not bother contacting qs and only hope they would of replaced if I had.

Alice Asked :
Does a Carronite bath need any special fittings/fixing?
Yes, our Carronite baths come with their own Installation Kit, which is slightly different from a standard bath kit.
Simon Asked :
There are two lengths given for this bath - 1700 and 1692. Please, can you confirm which one it is because I need to be absolutely sure? 1700 is going to cause a big headache on installation, but 1692 would be acceptable. Also... what is the height, please? It's given as 515mm but the diagram shows it as being 515 up to the underside of the rim, yet no measurement is given for the vertical height of the rim. Please, can you clarify: Is it 515 plus the rim (if so, how tall is that rim?), or is it 515 to the top of the rim (i.e. the diagram is incorrect). Many thanks.
Please see below the technical drawing for the Quantum 1700x700 SE to confirm the measurements: The total height of the bath is 565mm, which includes the panel height of 515mm and the bath lip of 50mm.
Anne Asked :
Do I need to purchase a click-clack waste for this bath? If so, which one would you recommend? Many thanks
Thank you for your enquiry. This bath can take any standard plug & chain, or pop-up waste.
Jay Asked :
Hi, I am interested in the Carron bath but have a couple of questions. 1) can the Carronite baths be drilled? 2) can the taps be fitted on the side of the bath in the middle? 3) how deep is the overflow? We fit the bath for my mother, and the depth of water is paramount and her ability to operate the taps when in the bath sitting on a bath chair. Thanks a load. Jay
Thank you for your interest in Carron Bathrooms. When you receive your new Carron bath, you will need to drill your tap holes to suit your fittings. We have also attached a technical guide, which will help you drill your holes in the best way. Unfortunately, the taps cannot be drilled at the side ledges as they are not wide enough to accommodate tap fittings. The only location suitable is at the tap ledge end of the bath. Carron does manufacture a rectangular single-ended bath called the Urban, which is designed to take taps on the side ledges. You can also download the technical datasheet for Urban to help you with your enquiries. The overflow position is 80mm from the top of the bath to the centre of the overflow. The overflow has a 52mm drilling, which will help you install most European fittings available in the market. Both the Urban and Quantum models have an internal depth of 304mm from the bath base to the bottom of the overflow.
We will soon verify the details and add your rating appropriately.
