I purchased this VIGO SHOWER PANEL for my master bathroom remodelling and Its the best choice I ever did ! I love the thermostat that lets me know the water temperature and the water pressure was great no matter which function you use ! The shower handle is very useful and handy .. the best specially for giving our dogs their weekly bath ! Overall this product is excellent and definitely gives value for your money ! No regrets on buying this one !

The shower panel worked great for 2 months but now has a problem with the thermostat that led to a lukewarm shower this morning. We'll see how well Vigo honors the warranty. Overall we are very disappointed with this experience.

I agree with the last guy's comments. The product looks nice and the plumber I hired to install it says it looks nice and is of higher quality than most similar items he's seen, but if you order plan on spending another $700 to $800 to have it installed.
The unit is pre-plumbed to connect to a system with separate controls for hot and cold water. My old shower had a mixer valve. Converting it required either removing shower tiles or cutting a hole into the common wall between bath and bedroom. It took a master plumber three hours to install the unit. I've enjoyed the spa effect for several weeks now, and it feels quite luxurious. The thermostat has taken the guesswork out of turning on the faucet.
I opened this and found handle has some scratch marks- looks used. Overstock quickly sent replacement. That was commendable. Then the shower leaks and the flex. host was again sent to me quickly. 3 showers and the water thermostat failed. I only got cold water. Called VIGO and they said I need to lessen the pressure then 45 psi. The mixer cannot handle anything above it. What a joke that was. Never heard good pressure render a shower useless but that is what it is. I was told to get 2 small pressure control valve immediately before he thermostat get blown.
Return this for sure. What good when you cannot have any hot shower with this??? Now my problem is paying the plumber to dismantle it beside finding a box to contain and return this bad product.
I decide to choose this after reading good things but obviously I can't trust some reviews here.
Please think twice getting this. I may have bad luck with a lemon but will see if others has same hot water issue and same feeling about it's flimsy quality.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Cheap plastic through out. Shower chrome on plastic, handle light and has a hollow cheap feel.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate as quality is below expectaion.
I've had this product for three years. The thermostat never worked properly, it leaks from all outputs (likely a volume control cartridge issue but the company wouldn't even replace that), the fixture itself is junky (plastic), main shower head already has small cracks in it. At this point, I cannot control the temperature AT ALL and have no way to stop the leaking until I redo all of the plumbing behind the wall. BIG $$ REPAIRS NOW NEEDED! Do not buy this item - junk, junk, junk.
I bought this for a remodel on a new home. I had a different VIGO model at another home. I bought this model because it had a tub spout, which I needed, and the other model does not have that feature. Otherwise I would have purchased the stainless steel model I had before. This model is cheaply made with much more plastic parts, knobs, spray wand, soap dish, etc... that feel and look inexpensive. It was difficult to get the water pressure and temperature controller to work properly and there is no written instruction to tell you how do so it. I'll make the assumption that there is a battery in the little black box behind the unit that will have to be replaced. It looks ok, for now as it's new and works alright after making adjustments to the Temp control knob. The mirror fogs quickly and really doesn't work as a good design function. The shower head has different settings, but it's so hard to turn it, that you're afraid it could breaks from the pressure needed to change the dial. If I hadn't had the Stainless Steel model before, I might think better about this one, but feel like it was a definite down grade. This model is cheap and even though has a few more bells and whistles than the stainless model, it's not worth the money.
A couple of days after the warranty allegedly expired, so did the shower valve. The company would do nothing, despite the obvious manufacturing defect in the structural housing itself which caused the valve to leak. They told me that they had changed vendors and would not even supply me with the name of their prior vendor so that I could try to get a new valve directly from them. Of course, without a working valve, you do not have a working shower tower. What a waste of money!!! I was SO disappointed. I will never, ever buy anything from this company again.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Terrible, terrible, terrible
I just bought my second of these; it's one of the few that fit over a tub and have an integrated tub spout. The shower elements are great. The water pressure gives a vigorous but not painful spray on the body sprays, the handheld shower head has multiple massage/shower spray options, and the fixed head tilts so you can point it to the wall to turn it on for a moment until it gets warm. That's really good if you begin with the handheld and are already in the shower when you want to switch to the fixed shower head. I would have given this a 5-star rating but for a few things. First the stupid mirror; there is no border so very quickly the silvering on the back wears away at the edges. It also fogs up immediately making it useless. Second the temperature gauge is also useless. I'm not sure if the a battery's dead or the gauge but since there is no front access panel it would mean removing the panel from the wall to find out. (My hand tells me all I need to know.) Lastly, the instructions are not the best. My contractor nearly spaced the water lines too far apart because the distance between the spray heads was the dimension given. Fortunately, this is my 2nd purchase so I knew the front of the body was wider than than the back. The 7.5" apart became approx. 4". The nipples shown are not described so he had no idea what he needed to buy until the panel arrived here. I ordered it 3/27 & at 7 a.m. 3/29 it was on the FedEx truck for delivery! Snaps to O - my contractor was really impressed! I LOVE O.co!!
