Wow, the unit was received and I was really expecting something more trashy than great, after seeing what they had at the state fair of Texas. This unit is exceptional, my plumber (took him approximately 4 hours to install in our walk in shower) was impressed at the quality. You can only get 2 of the three water sources on at the same time (which is fine) and the hand held wand is the strongest pressure I have ever felt coming out of one of these. If you are looking for a relaxing and inexpensive shower unit this is the one to get.
I love this shower panel. The shower head and the handheld sprayer are very nice and have good flow. The sprays work well but have a thinner stream of water than I anticipated (not related to water pressure but rather how small the holes are), so honestly they tickle more than actually washing. It is beautiful though and very nice alternative to installing a separate shower head and handheld sprayer -- it's more economical because it's all included in the panel and the panel hides the plumbing well.
As mentioned by others, the hose will rest on the shower floor unless you are mounting it really (impractically) high. I drape the hose on the bottom most shower sprays and it's all good.
Take care NOT to scrub it with anything abrasive, even the scrubby side of a sponge. Use only a soft detergent and a soft sponge. Brushed stainless steal always scratches with abrasives.

Looks and works great. Realtivley easy to install. Couple of complaints were that all of the hoses on the back were not tightened at the factory, so after I installed it, had to fix it and the spray wand drags on the base of the shower. Unit is taller that it seems. Will see how it holds up against the hard water.

I bought this shower panel for a guest bathroom. Wish I had come across it before I bought a more traditional unit for another bathroom. I was so blown away with the quality of this product, it's weight and size, that I'm still wondering if Overstock priced it correctly. A shower panel such as this goes for much more on other sites and at the local stores. I am building a house in the Caribbean, and as a regular Overstock customer, I'm able to purchase a lot (shower panel, faucets, bathroom sinks, toilets, etc) at a much more reasonable price--even with the additional shipping to the Caribbean.
Thank you, Overstock! Continue to over new and exciting products.

My wife and I have had this shower panel for a couple of months and we both LOVE it. We feel like we are in a spa every time we use the shower even though our bathroom is only 10 ft. X 5 ft. The unit was easy to install. The fact that you can only use 2 out of the 3 of the shower features was a concern, but we use the jets and rain head feature all the time. I would not hesitate recommending this product to anyone who would like a personal spa.

I have to start this off saying that we ordered this item for our Master bathroom, and it did not work correctly. Overstock was amazing in the return process. They sent out the new one before we even set the broken one back. My husband and I love this shower. It works great. Love the rain shower part. It makes you want to stay in the shower longer. The jets and wand are nice as well.

In the online pictures, and in the installation packet the bottom of the shower wand hose line is not shown. If you install the shower exactly to the installation recommendations, the wand hose will drag on the floor and scuff your tile. The hose hangs nearly 30 inches below the hook. Yet the installation instructions place the bottom only 12 inches from the floor. If you try to adjust the shower higher up, the body sprayers will be in you face.

Is the finish on the panels and knobs a brushed stainless?
It appears the panel looks brushed and knobs appear shiny???
Some reviews cite the hose dragging on floor.. Is this true if installed at recommended height??jimmyr2012 on Jul 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
For this unit, the panel and the knobs are a brushed stainless steel. The knobs are not shiny, they are the same finish as the rest of the panel. In terms of the hand shower hose, it depends on how high the shower is mounted. We have one of these panels hanging up here with the shower head being at a height of 7 1/2' and the hose is a good 6" off the flooroverstockcustomercare1 on Jul 30, 2012
