Q. THE WATER COMPANY INSPECTOR TELLS ME THAT THE FLEXIBLE SHOWER HOSE MUST NOT BE ABLE TO REACH INTO THE WC OR BIDET IS THIS CORRECT?

A. Yes - Any shower hose that reaches into a toilet bowl or into a bidet is a fluid category 5 risk of contamination to your drinking water supply. There are several ways to eliminate the problem such as constraining the hose with a clip so that it cannot reach the WC or bidet, fit a fixed shower screen or simply fit a shorter hose. For further advice look at our bathroom guidance.
