This is a good, not great shower head. Basically if you really like the magnetic release and 2-in-1 form factor, and you don''t want to spend a ton for something better build, this does the job well. This review is with the restrictor on. I don''t know why people want showeheads that can rip your skin off, but trust me this showerhead is fine with the restrictor in place. I love the rate - if the restrictor was off I''d be worried about my water bill.
It''s tall! The main head comes up over the tap, which I needed. I''m over 6 feet tall, and this is the first time in a long time that I can stand under the water without ducking my head. This is so nice for the taller person in your life, and the wand is still at the perfect height for shorter people.
Magnetic wand is great. No more fiddling with those weird mic stand style holders. My wife loves it, and I do too.
2-in-1 heads are great. The unit flips between the main head alone, both, and the wand alone. It''s great to have all the options. The wand even has an on/off button while the unit is set for both. It''s great.
The main shower head is great. It''s wide, and in single mode has great pressure - even with the restrictor. This is not a "rainshower" head though - a true rainshower head mists, while this is just a lot of streams. Great for most washing.
The wand has several modes. I wish it had a tighter focus as I love a good powerwash mode, but overall it''s pretty good. Goes from wide to spot sprays, and works well. Also has the on/off button as mentioned for quick switching.
Installation is a snap. Screws on to your existing spigot. I see some reviewers thought that shower heads would come with the pipe that comes out of the wall. That''s a really basic mistake, c''mon people, you have the internet. Google it. Don''t blame the manufacturer. You need to buy a much more expensive complete hardware kit to get those pieces.
Combined mode is luxurious. With both heads on and the wand set to a wide pattern, the area where they join makes me swear this can''t possibly be a water-saving head. Feels amazingly luxurious, and still meets modern efficiency standards. Very excellent.
Cheap plastic. There''s some plain plumber gray PVC in there, and most of the rest is plastic with nickel-plated finish. The wand is just barely worth what you pay, and only because of the magnetic features. Every single part is just barely worth what you''re paying. If you want good construction, pay a little more for a "real" set.
My wand''s on/off button doesn''t quite work. When the main unit is set to either both or want modes, the on/off button shuts off the wand partially. I''d guess it''s leaking at least a gallon an hour. Over a year that will add up. I might bother to mess with it eventually, but for now it''s not a major concern. I like my unit to be in "both" mode most of the time, so I can live with this is if I have to.
I''m replacing an old set that was left in my new house. While functional it was quite ugly and starting to leak. Compared to my old unit this has better flow, more options, and looks better. Plus I can actually stand upright. Overall I''m quite happy, and if I have to replace this in 5 years when the plastic fails, that''s fine for now. For my situation, this is one of the best options on the market. I''m mostly happy. 5 stars for the design, minus one star for cheap materials - including my wand button barely working.
