Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by prepgroove do not buy
The pan cracked after only a few months. Also the door is loud, and there is a large gap where the glass meets the wall. It needs a ridiculous amount of silicone to fill.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ttbc a huge piece of junk, leaks everywhere from plastic glass front.
The doors aren't the same radius as the base and must be bent out slightly to conform to base. The front panel lets water in the track that holds it & let's water out everywhere. I've drilled holes all over to let it drain & caulked stuff that I should not have to, to get the piece of junk to function without flooding the new bathroom I just finished. As for filling the voids in the wall with foam to give them some strength , I don't understand why they can't provide something like that. A buck for them ? I can't remember having so much trouble with a shower unit before , & I do this for a living. P.S. buy a glue in drain not their rubber cup system they supplied ,it will leak in the future, trust me.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Angela Impossible to follow the instructions
Your CAD operators and instruction writers should be better trained.
When installing the pan, I noted that the drawings are showing open wall framing (eg. Unfinished walls) but on the next page they speak of finished walls, which is it?
They also mention from subfloor 3/8" to the top of abs pipe, then they show mounting on top of finished floor. Again, which is it?
They show adhesive on back of panels on one page, but on the walls the next, which is it, or is it both?
When getting ready to install the frame I noted the comments "placement of jamb is critical to door operation"; and the notes to install jamb "1 inch from edge". Looking at the CAD provided and reading the directions, I could not tell 1 inch from edge of WHAT precisely. The detail pull out only shows the screw hole on the side of the jamb, but doesn't show placement, and the full sized drawing is too "far away", to give any helpful detail. Very frustrating, indeed.
I can only imagine the frustrations to come. We've been at this install for the better part of three days and it feels as though we're being run in circles.
I beg you, hire someone qualified to build your cad and instruction manuals. And post a step by step installation video for those who don't undesrtand what they're reading; or, as in the case of the jambs, do understand, but can't tell from the drawings. PLEASE.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Orangeupurple Attractive but flimsy and broke within a few months
I loved the looks of this corner shower. I am unfamiliar with the installation, since my contractor put it in. I never had trouble with leakage. . . However, it is unusable since the entire lip of the pan is badly cracked. I didn't realize it until one day I dropped the soap and discovered a large vertical crack in the corner. Upon further inspection I saw dozens of hairline fractures throughout the edge of the base. I had thought that the shelves would break first since they are incredibly bendable and flimsy. I must say though, that the customer service was excellent. The company will send me new walls and pan after getting my pictures. They were aware of the problems and said that the newer product will have foam infills to make it less flimsy. However, now I have to rehire my contractor to rip out the old and put in the new . . . and then what do I do with that old stuff!?!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Greg24 Please respond to this, thank you
My review is not a normal review i.e., works great, or hate it, etc. My mother had someone come in and redo her 2nd bath/laundry room. she allowed this person to pick out and purchase this corner shower unit. I don't know if the instructions weren't as good as they should have been and/or if he did not care or have a clue of how to install it properly. I do know that there is, in my opinion, way to much silicone where the sides and the base come together at the corners. So with that being stated, hard to point the imperfections at the unit, but the problem she is dealing with is that the person that installed this unit also cut a hole in the side of the stall for the plumbing to the shower head to come through. My mother is not tall, not at all, and she hates this because it hits her in the face and she can't maneuver out of the way of constantly being hit head on with water. I need to replace the wall unit and place the shower just above the wall height. What I would like to know, do you sell the wall unit separately so I can fix this. I wish she would have allowed me to do it initially, but she did not want to bother me with it. I did not even know she had it done until it was finished. Can you let me know if the wall portion of the kit is available without purchasing the whole unit. And if it is available, it is at a reasonable price. Thank you.

Remodeled entire bathroom and regrettably installed this shower unit. the base is spongy even though it was installed properly. this had lead to leak after leak around the drain. I've had to beat the ceiling out TWICE in the room below to try to fix it from underneath. Now we are at the point we have to tear it out. I want my money back! I might even ask for reimbursement for my time and labor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2gtsvette This should be a winnner .....New Base design
I got this shower unit to replace the exact unit from 3 years ago. My old one had a an issue where the floor was cracking and leaking due to a poorly designed base. This new model has a nice stronger design with a much stronger and solid base and it should hold up for several more years. The description says it has fluted glass doors but its really plastic but still looks nice. Overall its a good Unit and I would now recommend it since it has a newly designed base.

Where to Start.. Well, some tips for you if you're looking at buying.
Take the wall section that has the shelves and from the back, fill with great stuff (insulation spray) first. not all at once, will take a few coats. this will stiffen up and strengthen the shelves.
Save putting the rails for the doors on the walls until last step. Lift the doors onto the pedestal, then using tape tape the rails to the door assembly, not the walls. push assembly where you want it to sit, and then mark on walls the location of rails. this is really the only way to get this thing just right.
Seal everything that isn't pre formed. every joint , or this thing will leak. even inside the bottom track where the door glides ride. Just on the ends, where you screwed them together. took me a while to figure out where the water was coming from. you will need 3 tubes.. manual says 2.
Wood. I really can't find a valid reason for the gaps they suggest, unless it's just so you can get the pieces out of 2 8 foot 1x3.
Supplies.. read through the manual before starting the project. There are a number of fasteners that are not included. They could save a person a lot of trouble just by putting a sticker on the box that say what additional stuff you need to buy. after all, you're already at Home Depot.
1 Glaring issue is the radius of the base is not the same as the radius of the doors. ie. there is a lager gap visually on the outside at the ends, than there is in the middle of the arc.
I found the manual lacking dimensionally when it came to actually putting the walls up.. all distances should be measured from the corners, and are not, or not included at all.
