Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well for me Just spent the last couple of days installing this setup in my bathroom. Pretty straightforward, nice complete kit. Drill out the holes for the pins to go thru 5/16 for me, no way they would line up otherwise. Panels have uneven gaps but not unsightly. Use lots of caulking when putting them together. Make special note of installing shower tap, panel is thin so tap needs to be mounted before the panel goes on. Do a lot of measuring and space the tap body to end up close to the panel. The cover for my tap ended up pulling in the panel a bit so am hoping it seals well. Bottom seems quite rigid, I am 240 lbs and it does not move around. Heard this is an issue with cheaper base. I do have access to bottom of base so drilled a couple of 3 inch holes and will be using low expansion foam to give more support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shower I did a complete remodel of my master bedroom shower and this shower was a big part of it. I did a lot of research and could not be happier with the result. I am 70 years old and installed the unit myself. It was very easy to work with. I am a retired bricklayer and have done lots of tile work but I had never installed a 4 piece acrylic shower before so I was real happy to see how well made this unit is. It is extremely easy to do a neat caulking job and it really looks as good as the one piece tub and shower unit I cut out of that spot. The only improvement that Maax could make on this unit would be to put the nice anti slip finish on the seat. I almost slid off the first time I tried sitting on it. I fixed that with some anti slip stickers. I would definitely recommend this shower and I think any handy person could handle the install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from INSTRUCTIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED the unit itself is beautiful, but there was no installation instructions, and when i went on the Maax website, i could not find them, and when i phoned for help i was on hold for over a half hour and gave up. luckily we hired a professional plumber to install it. STOP SAVING MONEY ON PRINTING AND INCLUDE THE INSTRUCTIONS IS MY ADVICE. EVEN PROFESSIONALS WANT SOME GUIDANCE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be careful with measurements! It’s says 30’ but you need closer to 32” even with the drywall removed from wall. But it is a beautiful shower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY Shower Unit Quality fibre glass product, very sturdy, nice finish, and well made. Easy to install, just follow the directions and have someone to help you move the product into place. Great as a walk-in shower using a curtain rod. I do not recommend a glass sliding door as it it makes the available space feel small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Looking Shower Installed this shower a couple of weeks ago. Looks great! Not too hard to install but would only recommend if you are a good handyman. Wish the bottom had better support, not sure if it would stand up to a heavy person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has everything i so needed I bought this and needed it quickly as I had had an accident that prevented me from lifting my legs into the existing bath/shower. it is amazing for me the first time I got to shower I sat on the seat and cried. I had been 3 months not being able to do anything unaided...THIS IS PERFECT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Curtain stopper redefined! The shower installed pretty easily. I was not happy about how the shower curtain was placed at the bottom of the shower. I laminated and siliconed a cedar board to the lower 'outer' edge of the shower. It has a two inch rim that enabled the curtain to move 3 inches 'over' to the edge and gave me more room within the shower. I had read where the stall was smaller than some thought it should be. Placing an outer ridge at the base of the shower as a curtain stopper added almost four inches to the depth of the stall. It solved my problem of 'shallow elbow room'. The heavily laminated cedar board looks great and works much better!

How much of a lip is there to prevent water from coming out on the floor?

Asked by: Kokie
Once installed, there is no issue with leakage. With shower curtain or shower door.

can I use a shower curtain rather than a sliding door? Thanks

Asked by: Peter
Hey Peter, thanks for reaching out! You can definitely use a shower curtain instead of a sliding door. However, I would recommend using a Maax door because it is easier to clean, reduces or entirely eliminates the water that is splashed onto the floor of your bathroom while you shower, and is overall healthier due to the lack of buildup of mold. Have a nice day!

I know this doesn't come with a drain kit but does it come with a chrome drain screen cover?

Asked by: Batgr
This unit will accept a standard drain assembly, and when you purchase the drain assembly, the strainer will typically come with the assembly. Usually, drain assemblies (with strainers) will have different finish options available and chrome is the most common. If you have any other questions, we invite you to contact our team of MAAX product experts at 1-877-GET-MAAX (1-877-438-6229). Our hours of operation are Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm Eastern time.
