Aqualla Brassware - any experience/opinions?

Postby cannibalwombat » Fri Sep 11, 2020 11:48 am

Hi there!

My wife and I are just about to start a load of renovation work on our house. Included in that is building and fitting a new bathroom.

We've been going round the houses trying to get recommendations for good quality brands that don't bust the bank! We've had some personal recommendations for Grohe/Hansgrohe stuff. However setting up with their stuff to our particular spec (i.e. a 3 outlet shower system including a rainshower, handheld and overflow filler, all concealed) is proving very expensive with those brands (£1000+).

One of the guys in our local trade centre has recommended Aqualla (aka Aqualla Brassware). A company based in Ireland and which seems to be relatively new. He said they're good quality, reliable and have been selling well recently. They have the exact set-up we want for just over £400 - less than half what we'd have to pay pricing up parts from Grohe/Hansgrohe/HighLife etc.

Trouble is, I can't really find any reviews about Aqualla online and none of our friends/family have heard of them.

Does anyone here have any experience of this brand? Any recommendations, or indeed cautionary tales?

Hi cannibalwombat
From experience no matter what make you buy there is always the possibility of problems with the product. Ok, some have a better quality reputation than others but if we endorse a particular make you may get a lemon. So you are unlikely to get a recommendation from us.

Hi Edwin,

No we just couldn't get any reliable endorsements of Aqualla's products. So in the end we stumped up the extra cash for a Grohe system and have been very happy with it nearly 2 years down the line.

Hi

Many thanks for taking the time to reply. I think we may be in the same position as can't find any reviews.

Thanks
