Use the search box on the left, choose the past year. There have been dozens of threads about shower domes. Yes, they work and are good.

Make your own. Corflute sign board. $9. Have them in 3 rentals and my own new house.

#5I agree -Corflute board works just as good.May not look as
flash but easy to replace as needed.

Do you have to seal the edges or put on a right-angle-type metal strip if you usecorflute! And does not having a dome in the middle make a difference!

Same size shower tray upside down perfect.This was done in one house we brought. He was way past his time this guy. House built in 67!

Brilliant. Yes, it needs the dome.

My brother put a sheet of clear perspex on top of his shower stall and sealed it with silicone, when we were living in his house.
It was horrible.The steam hit the perspex, cooled down and then it rained cold water on us while we were in the shower.
He later replaced it with a proper dome and it worked perfectly. I think the dome is essential.

I love mine, mainly because it keeps the whole shower area warm - lovely in winter. However, it makes me feel claustrophobic - like I'm in a vertical coffin!

Steam Stopper. $199 from Bunnings. Brilliant!

No it doesn't need the dome. Please tell me why.

paxandtrax, Sep 1, 2012, 8:15 pm


Just cut mine back from outside edge of shower and sealed down onto frame. No problem with dripping or anything. If it didn't work or looked ugly why would I put it in a new house. Looks way less ugly than a dome.

Sheet of flat acrylic works perfect $50

alister1, Sep 2, 2012, 10:15 am

theyre great!

doesnt drip, and dont even really notice it up there. i personally dont feel claustraphobic in the shower but occasionally if i have shower too hot i feel a bit exhausted so have to open the door a crack to get fresh air

The point of the dome is that the water doesn't drip from the centre on top of you.If you had a flat sheet that naturally sagged a little it would all drip from the middle.However, if you have it slightly oversized in at least one directly you could probably arrange for it to be concave from the inside and so it should work.

I can't believe they're so expensive (and the mounting strip is really crummy).Or rather, I can't believe that someone hasn't started flogging similar things for a third the price.

Bought one on Thursday from Bunnings, now to see if it can install its self

jenner4, Sep 2, 2012, 9:17 pm
