akuaplus® Bath Shower Niche - 12-in x 24-in - Stainless Steel - Matt Black is rated
Rated 1 out of
Poor design. Water leakage waiting to occur.
Unlike other much better niches, this one does not have a wide lip that allows you to screw it in place. Then on top of this lip you would add water proofing mud and fabric. Then you would place the thinset and tile on this sealed lip, right to the edge of the protrusion. The way it is designed the only thing that prevents any water leakage is any silicone sealant that is applied when inserting the niche in place. This same silicone sealant is also the only thing that will provide any 'secure' support, forever. Forever is a long time.
