Ahqua Shower Stall


I have a customer interested in a neo-angle shower from Ahqua company
http://www.ahqua.com, has anyone had experience with these folks.
I have done a lot of work for these people and am cautious about trying something new on this project

Re: Ahqua Shower Stall


Why is he interested in it? Got a relative at the plant that will get him a great discount, or he just stumbled on it as the first thing he found doing his own research?

In other words, what's the reason to use this over something you are more comfortable with?

Re: Ahqua Shower Stall


They happened to see a brochure and liked the look, especially the frameless door concept. We typically offer cultured marble or tile, but are willing to install other products.
We are on the other side of the country and I have never had any experience with their products or with the company. Our local Noland (plumbing supply) store is a distributor for them but has never sold anything yet. Nothing like being the first.

This isn't reason enough to lock anyone into that product.

Whats the price of these things..... just watched video and it looks like a project for jackas**es that don't know how to use a tile saw...

Can it really be cheaper than doing it the real way?

I wonder about the grouting of it? do the panels expand and contract alot?

I don't know man......It may look cheap seeing the real thing

Re: Ahqua Shower Stall


Those are some of the questions I have. Wanting to see if anyone has first hand experience. Price is in the $3500-4000 range depending on options.

Re: Ahqua Shower Stall


Installed shower stall in March - having a terrible time with water getting under the shower pan that is one complete unit was shipped and installed per instructions now the customer support wants me to drill holes in the pan, dry with a hair dryer and then silicone the holes. Very disapointed in the quality.

Water getting under the pan??? Something seriously wrong here. You need to take it back out and find the problem.
