I am 90% finished with installation of this shower stall and felt it would be a good time to write my review. I have been able to use the shower twice already and will update my review in a few weeks should anything change. It’s important to understand that reading these reviews are really not going to make a whole lot of sense until you actually attempted to install this shower. The issues folks have ran into and the obstacles that you will run into really can’t be appreciated until you actually experience it. I put this shower together myself and it took about 2 hours for me to get it together. Looking back it would have been a lot easier if I had help but at the time I wanted to put it together I was alone. Overall the shower stall is a good buy if it meets your specific need like I had. I needed a quick, cost effective way to get a shower in a garage conversion and for that it is perfect. Here is a brief summary of my experience.
Shipping: The stall was delivered in just a few days after I ordered it and with the tracking info I knew when to expect it. To my surprise the box it came in was much smaller and lighter than I expected. When I got home from work and saw it sitting on my lawn I said $50 bucks to ship this is crazy. I picked the box up with one hand and carried it inside. I could have easily picked it up from home depot and stuck it in my Honda Civic and pay no shipping. All the parts were there and nothing was damaged.
Snapping together the walls was a bit tricky. The instructions are worthless so I strongly recommend you watch the short install video a few times before and during the install. Once you have watched it you can pretty much wing the installation by just looking at the parts.
The screws that came with the stall to fasten it to the base are worthless and expect to use some other screws that can actually screw through the plastic.
The shower head and faucet are made of very cheap plastic and you MUST use the plumping tape when connecting or it WILL leak.
My friend who is a contractor came over a few days after I put the stall together and connected the drain and utility pump I needed to use. That part of the install was pretty standard and shouldn’t be different than any other shower base.
Once the base is connected to the drain sitting the stall on the base and having it lock into place was extremely frustrating. There were a few times where I didn’t think it was possible and wanted to throw the entire stall I the garbage. The issue is when you get one side locked in the other pops out and then repeat. Ultimately I was successful and I think screwing the stall to the base once I got it snapped in was a huge help.
Once the shower was all together it actually worked really well. It was sturdy, strong, and even the cheap shower head had great water flow.
I connected the drain to a pump because I didn’t have a drain low enough to access and it works perfectly pumping out the water. My next step is to caulk the edges of the baser to ensure a complete seal. That looks to be the easy part and I believe this shower is not going to leak at all. In fact the two times I used it looked around to makes sure there was no water leaking out. If you are installing this stall where it is not free standing and plan to build a wall around it I recommend that you don’t put the drywall up until after you have used it a few times and feel 100% confident you are not going to get leaks. I don’t plan on putting up the dry wall until I get some other things done in this bath room and will update my review.
Overall I am pleased with the product and would recommend. That being said the past few days while I was dealing with putting it together and installing I would have had a different recommendation

This is not for most homes. If your application is not temporary, be sure to build a supporting frame around it. I have seen them last for decades, but I have seen them last less than two years. It is a great shower for a basement shower, if the user will be sober and reasonably careful. Or if budget and space are critical, this may be your only option. But... do not just throw it up if you want it to last years.
-- Word of caution, be sure to use the correct fittings, available at most HD stores. --

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geezer Not for rowdy teens, but great for a controlled area.
Having installed one one of these before, when I bought this shower stall I knew exactly what I was getting into, but it was many years ago. Everything fit. Aluminum screws and bolts to prevent rust. It came with the fixtures and drain; even a curtain. For the price this thing is unbeatable, yet it is functional. However, if you are looking for super durable, high quality everything, you are in a fantasy world if you think you can get it for this price. But for what I needed it for it is perfect. I had occasion to call the company and their customer service and attitude were excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrT Nice for my needs.
I installed this in an off-grid bathhouse along with a propane instant water heater (Triton 10L). The stall goes together pretty easy. The shower curtain is way cheap and I replaced it with a good heavy duty variety. I did not use the water valve provided but it looked pretty cheap too. All in all I thought the stall to be very adequate for my needs, reasonably good design and construction, easy to install and an excellent value. I should mention too that I got all my bathhouse materials at Home Depot. Worked out great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jan THEY DON'T MAKE THINGS LIKE THEY USED TO
Got this as a replacement for an older unit in which the plastic was cracking from age. Upon taking it out of the box I was highly disappointed in how flimsy the materials were. Once put together, it is stable enough, but not great by any means. Putting it together was no fun at all. There were 2 of us working together and we were pulling our hair out. NOT a project for a person alone. The only reason I recommend it is for people on a tight budget with a small space.

I love the compactness of the shower. The task of putting it together because a little difficult. Each set of bolt should be in a color code bag, that correspond to installment placement. Not a job for just anyone.
