Got the 1700mm Carronite version with shower screen. Absolutely top-notch, comfortable and roomy for my 6' frame and feels very solid indeed. The text in the description referring to "the image shows the right-hand model" doesn't refer to the default image showing the view from above (that's a left-hand model), but to the studio photo image which includes the screen - very confusing. If in doubt, check the info about this bath on the Carron Baths website to confirm what left-hand/right-hand means. Also, be sure to check the bath extremely carefully for damage when it is delivered, especially on the internal projecting corner where the bath widens-out. QS supplier seem to drag them around in the back of the van and it can tear through the protective cardboard packaging and damage the surface - we had to return the first one we had delivered for this reason. QS and their supplier swapped it with absolutely no hassle, so top marks for that.
It has been installed for over a year no problems at all. Solid robust no movement when standing in it. Well worth the extra money. However, still mentally scared by qs due to their lack of understanding of left and right. We installed bath no. 3 having been sent wrong hand twice. We never made a mistake but still had to pay delivery cost on one of these returns.
Best bath ever. Heavy but easy to install with online video guides. Water stays hot for longer and it is solid, no flexing when you move. Sides are steep, even the sloped end which could be a problem for people under five foot. buying a non-slip version helps.
Ideal, perfect for our style of Bathroom and most important substantially made so it will last. After weeks of studying the various shapes and sizes, this was the Bath for us !

Marilyn Asked :
Is the shower screen that comes with this bath fixed to the bath, or is there a rubber seal along the entire bottom of the screen?
The hinged screen is fixed to the wall with a wall profile. It has a plastic seal along the entire bottom of the screen.
paul Asked :
looking at two of your shower baths - Carron Carronite and the ideal standard - I have looked at the photos and would like to know - what is recommended as far as tiling or aqua boards - do they (boards or tiles ) sit on top of bath edge to form water seal or does bath sit up against tiled or boarded wall and water seal is made by silicone bead or water seal strip around bath - hope that makes sense
Tiles are normally fitted down on top of the bath ledge. Both the tile and adhesive have a thickness of around 15mm. A silicone seal line would then be used at the bottom of the tile and the bath ledge to make this watertight. We would only recommend installing aqua panels to the floor and installing the bath against the panel.
