Clawfoot bathtub faucet with shower enclosure, bathtub wall mount, gooseneck spout by Elizabethan Classics
Looks great, lots of tape
Overall the assembly was fairly straight forward. The joints did require more plumber's tape than i was expected, 3+ times around. The shower head is a low flow "rain" type and may not be acceptable for everyone as the pressure is low. All the parts should be assembled from bottom to top because once the top piece is in and there's a leak, you have to disassemble everything to fix it. Refer to tip above about extra plumber's tape.

Got this product, just had my plumber install it today. It gave him nothing but trouble. He had tried several times to tighten the supply lines to the intakes and it always leaked. He couldnt get them tight enough because the intakes would start spinning in place. There was nothing he could do to keep them from turning until he finally had to use the pipe wrench, marring the finish. Eventually he got it tight enough and I'm having to keep an eye on it.
The other problem is the small curtain rod system. I had believed that all curtain rods were one size. I have a 6ft clawfoot and the curtain rods only were gonna allow for 4ft of use. So I had to rehang my old chrome ones back up and now having to figure out how I'm gonna secure the shower piping to it since its few inches lower than my curtain rods!
Giving it 2 stars may be much for small size, bad design, and easy to kill finish, but I really, really like the looks of the faucet and showerhead. It's a type of look I'd like to somehow match the future vanity faucet too. In the end, the cheap price tag says I got what I paid for.

love my new shower
This shower conversion kit was easy to install and works great. I was replacing an old shower kit that was over 20 yr old. The Gooseneck faucet looks great and I love the shower head. Customer service was very helpful and resolved an issue that I had with a shower head damaged in shipping. I had the new shower head shipped to me within a week. I was very pleased with the quality and look of this product.

Antique Tub Restoration
This claw foot tub faucet and and shower enclosure is a great product with classic design and simple installation. The oil bronze finish on the gooseneck and shower enclosure is pretty delicate and the installer needs to take care not to scratch the finish. Would recommend offering/sending a touch-up paint kit with this product.
