Our guide to bathroom retailer Plumb Center/Wolseley gives you an insight into what its customers really think of the company and its service.

We've surveyed thousands of bathroom company customers to reveal how bathroom retailer Plumb Center, owned by Wolseley, measures up to rival brands such as Bathstore, Homebase and Victorian Plumbing.

When we asked shoppers about their experience of buying a bathroom, one retailer stood head and shoulders above the rest with a customer score of 80%. It left the last-placed company trailing well behind with 58%.

Our unique customer score comes from asking people how satisfied they are with a brand on a seven-point scale from very poor to excellent, as well as whether they would recommend the company.

We also ask people to rate the company for important factors on the same scale. This allows us to separately calculate star ratings, with five being the maximum.

Wolseley bathroom showrooms

It has hundreds of branches nationwide, but not all are bathroom showrooms. Use the online 'branches' tool to find one in your area. 

This will list what the store specialises in, such as plumbing or drainage, and whether it has a showroom. 

Wolseley showers

Wolseley has a range of power, electric and mixer showers, as well as standalone shower enclosures and components for wet rooms.

We've rated well-known shower brands and tested electric showers to find out how reliable they are and whether they deliver on the manufacturer's claims. 

Wolseley bathroom furniture, flooring and tiles

The retailer sells fitted vanity units and a few standalone storage options, mostly under its own brand Nabis, but also from other brands. It doesn't sell bathroom tiles or flooring, though.
