This article which looks at “Shower Curtains vs Over Bath Screens” is the fourth in a series of articles by bathroom water damage prevention specialist Steve Dalloway.
In my experience of over 20 years as a landlord, screens leak and don’t keep the water in the bath. That’s a fact ! They look nice but they don’t do their job properly.
Replacing screens is expensive and even though the replacement seals are available for them now they still leak and they still are hard to keep looking nice and fresh. They also let water out in terms of spray and as screens are generally only 800mm long, the floor still gets wet. My opinion for what it’s worth, is go with a quality shower rail and a curtain. The curtain can be easily replaced for around £20.00 or less and a quality rail looks good for years.
But I hear you say, “water gets past the corner of the curtain and drenches the floor !”
Well that used to happen but there are things out there that can stop that happening really easily and I should know, it’s the first product I ever invented and patented. It’s called a “Dripguard” and it’s a must in any home, let alone a rental.
