Cross Contamination Shower Hose too long in a Hospital

Cross Contamination Shower Hose too long in a Hospital

Which shower hose should i buy to stop this cross contamination.

We keep getting asked this as we sell the shortest shower hose in the UK (0.5m)

This is not the right option in this case.

The 0.5m hose is really for people who hate the long looping shower hoses and want something that looks neat.

They realise at this length the hose is mmostly decorative.

In a hospital patients would be going mad as it is so short and would lead to much frustration.

We would recommend either a 0.8m or a 1m hose as this can be used to shower with but should be short enough to not cross contaminate.

If you are a hospital or doing a spec for a hospital then please do not buy the very small 500mm (0.5m) shower hose.

Should i buy a one or two door Quadrant shower enclosure?

Should i buy a one or two door Quadrant shower enclosure?

Simple answer = 1 door

Why? = Because a two door, although they look good they always come off the runners and need constant maintenance.

as with all new branded shower doors please only use soap amnd water or Ecover as otherwise you will take the clear shield coating off.

Will a shorter shower hose improve your shower pressure?

Read entire post: Will a shorter shower hose improve your shower pressure?

Will a shorter shower hose improve your shower pressure?

Well the short (parden the pun) answer is yes.

But there are some variables in that answer,

but if you were replacing a longer shower hose with a shorter shower hose,

and they both had the same bore (hole inside measured in mm) then the water will come out a bit stronger.

This is because it has less distance to travel and less kinks to navigate that slow down the flow of water.

I personally think that our 0.5m shower hose is too short to replace a normal sized showering hose.

As there is just not enough play for it to be used for general showering.

however a 0.8m or a 1m shower hose may suit you very well indeed.

Goodbye to our warehouse lass artwork

Our artwork is going from our warehouse.

Sadly we have had one of warehouse doors taken down and replaced with a normal door.

It is progress and far more practical but i will miss our warehouse lass :(

A side heated towel rail - what a good idea

A side wall mounted heated towel rail - what a good idea

The Midhurst from JIS is one of the best ideas for years in the bathroom industry.

What a good design idea.]

Probably not suited if you have toddlers around the house.

But this design frees up wall space and you will be able to dry your towels much easier

than a conventional rail, where you sometimes have to squeexe them down the back.

made out of stainless steel and has a 25 year guarantee

Vado`s long awaited Red dot winner the Kovera range is finally here.

This tap and shower valve range were incredibally hard to get from the original design concept to the finished article.

Other tap makers have tried and failed with this design, but Vado are the industries tortoises.

They are very thorough and have come up with a sure fire winner here.

With cutting edge design combined with Vado`s tried and trusted excellence in producing well made taps.

They have to be well made as Vado offer a 12 year guarantee on them.

Stainless steel bathroom taps Inox versus Mike Pro

Read entire post: Stainless steel bathroom taps Inox versus Mike Pro

Stainless steel bathroom taps Inox versus Mike Pro

Which is better and how are they different to each other?

 

 

 

 

Crosswater Mike Pro Brushed finish

Plus points =

Made of brass and then plated in a brushed finish

The good thing about being made of brass is that brass is easier to manipulate

so that the taps have a smoother look

 

Negative points =

Made of brass and not stainless steel

Only a limited range and some customers have said it does not like a proper stainless steel finish.

 

Just Taps Plus Inox

Plus points =

Made of pure stainless steel

Is a proper stainless steel colour

Stainless steel is very hygenic

Very industrial look

Comprehensive range

 

Negative points = 

Taps have not the flowing lines of the Mike Pro (as stainless steel is harder to shape)

Bath filler exafills are made of plastic and not stainless steel

Stock levels can vary.

To sum up

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words and the picture below shows a Inox basin mixer

against a Mike Pro floor mounted bath tap.

You can see the difference in colour and i will leave you to make your mind up which is better?
