This faucet is very beautiful and the assembly was pretty easy. However, the showerhead does not work correctly. For some reason it only drips and will not spray outward. I've tried adusting it, but every adjustment does the same thing....drips. We ended up having to replace the showerhead.
This is a beautiful faucet set! The manifold is all brass - no chincy plastic housings. Works excellent, though the showerhead as shipped is low-flow, one who is mechanically inclined can change that (not very hard), or as suggested by another reviewer - you can get a different one.As for the handles coming out - another easy fix. Dip the threads of the handle in liquid candle wax and screw them in. When the wax hardens, it bonds nicely, but not TOO nicely ;o) Or you can add plumber's putty, or loc-tite, a nylon thread patch... All will cost under a buck, so not well deserving of a lower mark.Overall, it is a very well made, beautiful faucet set for about 1/2 what you would pay at the "big stores" - which is why you're looking at it here in the first place ;o)
This is an excellent product for the money. The only reason I did not rate it 5 stars is because the end handles tend to come loose and have to be tightened occasionally. This is a simple hand tighten and a minor inconvenience and should not stop you from buying the product.

Excellent quality. I like the three lever faucet as I can control the amount of water, hot or cold, and the center control valve gives full flow to the shower head. The shower head is small and plain, but I did not use it as I had shower head with a hand held attachment. I would recommend this product.
This is a good value compared to a big box home improvement store. The plumber loved the quality pf the functional parts, but he and I both were amazed at the inferior quality of the shower head... I had to buy a "real" shower head to complete the installation. Still a good buy and recommend it, however, be prepared to get a different shower head.
This is for a guest bathroom downstairs that is not used often. Looks great but the spray from the shower head is not what i had envisioned. I'm keeping based on the limited amount this bathroom will get used....who knows, maybe i got a bad one
Overstock shipped the product quickly for a reasonable fee. The product looks great. It installed easily and was a good match with existing fixtures. This product was a great value for the price. I would highly recommend this product. I would not hesitate to purchase other fixtures from this manufactuer.
Purchased this 3 handle set for a bathroom Reno I was completing on my own. I'm no certified plumber, but I felt I was handy enough to install this by myself. First the end section of handle has to be screwed into the knob on the side, every so often they have to be tightened. You can probably avoid this by using Teflon tape or pipe dope...no big deal. Installed everything in Feb of this past year. Looks nice and did for quite a few months. Night before my wedding, a guest showered at my house and was a little too rough with the hot water handle. (I'm usually very delicate when turning them on or off) The slight over turn of the handle unscrewed the valve steam cover and before I knew it the sump-pump in our basement was running full speed to keep up with the flood that was coming from our upstairs bathroom. Had a plumber come out on an emergency basis to rescue us. Naturally, I thought the problem occurred when I put on my "plumber pants" and installed something that was way over my head. Turns out, the plumber said everything was perfectly installed but the design of the handles were very poor, stating that if they are turned too far they will unscrew themselves. The plumber warned me that more than likely this will happen again at some point, awesome! Needless to say, buy a different set!
Love this shower faucet. Have a 30 year old bathroom. The local hardware stores had nothing updated to offer. Just some old fashion plastic styles. Glad I took the time to check out Over STOCK! Thirty dollars cheaper than Home Depot or Lowes!

The color of the brushed nickel is rich and expensive looking. The metal is heavy and substantial feeling. Very good value. I had the hardware installed by a professional plumber who was amazed by the price of this set. The handles are very nice to the touch. This was also the least expensive set that had an actual handle for the shower-to-tub lever... most I saw cost hundreds more. Great buy!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Extremely high quality. Comparable to very high end bath hardware from any bath retailer.

This set looks great in my shower and I am very happy with what I got with what I paid for it! I suggest buying a different shower head though. We are going to change ours out ASAP. The water flow is nothing worth getting excited about.
I had a professional plumber install this set as we had to have some "in the wall" stuff changed out in order to accomodate this purchase. He said it went in with no problem. I like the way it works. The "off" position is horizontal and turns full "on" by pushing down no more than vertical (1/4 turn) or anywhere inbetween depending on the temperature you like. The diverter has a "neutral" position at the horizontal location where it will shut the water off to either the shower or the tub and keep the temperature settings. Good if you like to lather up and save water then flip it back up to shower off . The only little negative I've found is that the diverter valve handle won't stay screwed in tight. It's not a problem to tighten it up but it is a little annoying. The handles are a little delicate looking and a man might want something a little beefier.
