Aqua Lux 48 in. Hinged Tub Door is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by anotherhappycustomer from great customer supportI have never written product review online, but I had to do it this time. Shower door arrived on time, good packaging prevented any chance of damage due to transportation. My contractor installed the door in no time, I love the bold look of it and it is very easy to maintain. However, my contractor made a mistake and cut bottom antiwater plastic strip too short, so there was space where vertical plastic strip and bottom plastic strip meet, and water leaked through it. I called Dreamline and they shipped me another bottom antiwater plastic strip at no charge. I would certainly recommend purchasing Dreamline products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elaine123 from Not for use with body jetsI love the look of this door and it was well-installed by my contractor. Unfortunately, I didn't realize until after the fact that it would not work with body jets. Even though the jets are at the front of the shower, they are forceful enough to splash at the back of the tub, and water leaks (alot!) outside the enclosure. There is also slight leak at the hinge which I could live with if it were in my own bath -- I would wipe up the excess moisture; but it is in a teen's bath and no hope of that! A great looking door if you have only a fixed shower head and can put up with a very slight leak at the hinges. I will have to try a sliding glass door that provides complete closing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by andrewarchitect from Great productI purchased unit with chrome finished hardware. For the price - excellent, well made, beautiful product. Good packaging; all parts in the box.To be fully satisfied with your installation, before you place an order check that wall you will install it on forms perfect 90 deg angle with the top of tub. Measured at the top of glass panel, hardware will allow max 1/4" tolerance from that angle. Otherwise you will have to use shims at wall brackets and wide sealant joints. Before installation RED AND UNDERSTAND INSTRUCTIONS !!! For a perfect look. after installation, using sharp utility knife, trim neoprene gaskets used to separate glass from metal surfaces of brackets and hinges. They will protrude a little bit beyond metal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Donna from Love the modern look!My husband remodels homes. He installed it earlier this year in our home. We love the look and functionality. I will tell prospective buyers though that there is absolutely no way to make it leak proof. Some water will get on the floor from the hinged area. It isn't problematic for us. We simply place an absorbent towel on the floor. Care must be taken to prevent mildew around the bottom of the hinged door where the stripping meets the tub. Again, not problematic just know to be aware and use some Clorox periodically to clean around it. Because of the weight of the door, two strong people are needed for installation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by vapoole from Beautiful but not that functionalI love the look of this door enough to consider keeping it, but I have a fixed shower head and no matter how how I angle it or how close to the front of the shower I stand, water gets absolutely everywhere. I'm going to try other shower heads before returning it since I like the look so much, but it really doesn't do a whole lot to keep the water in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SLUJeeper from Excellent DoorI purchased this door in 2016 and installed it myself. Its a very solid, heavy door and took a helper to install. Make sure your walls are plumb and square to tub. The hinges are very good quality. They are silent, smooth, and easy to clean. I use this shower daily, and clean everything on a regular basis. A tiny amount of mold usually appears after 3 weeks at the bottom inside corner where the door meets the fixed panel. The plastic door strip to keep water in did crack near the hinge, but its a minor thing. I plan to purchase a replacemment. I have another bathroom im remodeling and plan to use an Aqualux door for that as well. Affordable, well made, easy to install. Very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonsie from Sometimes You Get It Just RightI had never seen a product like this before but decided to order it. The look is subtle and sleek. So seamless that you do a double-take before realizing it's a glass door. But once you focus, "Oh Boy!" what an amazing look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marielise from expensive lookingI took a chance buying this shower door. I was afraid it would be flimsy. However, it exceeded my expectations and everyone who has seen it has raved about it.

Hi, After my contractor installed this door, a substantial amount of water is leaking between the door and the fixed glass. Probably mostly near the hinges. Is this a common problem with this door? How do I remedy this?
Asked by: Larry
Thank you for contact DreamLIne! Leaking between the two panels is not an issue with the AquaLux door. There are several factors that could be contributing to your leaking issue. Is the vinyl strip installed that covers this area? Is your shower head angled towards the door? Does it leak under normal showering or when you point a handheld shower at it? We urge you to contact DreamLine Customer Support at 866-731-2244 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further. We are available Monday through Friday from 8am-7pm EST and Saturday from 9am-pm EST. It would be helpful if you could take some photos of your installation and email them to us. We would need one photo from as far back as you can go to get the entire door, as it is installed now. Additional photos that would be helpful are of the area where the leaking is occurring. The more photos, the better! Please email those to email@example.com. Our technicians will look at the photos and determine what needs to be done to stop this from happening. We look forward to helping you with this!

Does installation require that the glass hardware be mounted into a stud behind the wall or tile? I have a vent pipe directly behind the edge of my tube that would need to be moved in order to install a stud, if that is required.
Asked by: jonthrasher
Thank you for your inquiry! While studs are always preferable, this door can absolutely be installed into finished walls with the wall anchors that are provided.
