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.

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.

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.

Elegant shower tower. Including this item I have ordered several things from Overstock and have been very impressed. The quality is very good and I have continued to shop Overstock because of price, availability and quality.
I purchased this shower panel again for my new bathroom addition, after I sold my home with the bathroom remodel using this panel. So, as you can imagine, I like this panel a lot. My water pressure for both homes was very good, so this was very beneficial to the effective performance of this panel. The shower jets are very nice and handheld shower is low and unobtrusive. One should realize that you cannot run multiple shower functions at once, thus only one thing can run at any given time...only shower head or only jets. If you tuck the function knob between two functions, water will come out of both functions but at reduced water pressure. The metal is very modern but the hard water in my area makes keeping it spotless ever challenging. I have purchased many Vigo products and I am always please with the quality for the price that I pay. Although my contractors were skeptical of the shower panel when I described my desire, I think they believe it is quite handsome now that it is installed. The thermoregulator was a bit confusing for me to use, and the instructions are unclear. However, I believe if you press the button on the handle while turning it to warmer temps, the valve allows the hot water to be mixed in. Overall, the installation appears very easy...no wall valve needed, just two copper pipes for hot water and cold. It is definitely a very good looking piece and I would recommend it. FYI, this has both a wall and corner installation to accommodate several design choices.
When the hot and cold supply lines are roughed in for this panel, what height is the rough opening for the supply lines.camasprairiecowboy on Feb 14, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello camasprairiecowboy, thank you for your inquiry! The height would be approximately 35 inches. I hope this helps. Happy shopping! overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 3, 2014
Is this fixture for new plumbing installation or for existing as well, where the holes for shower head and operating knob is already cut?1ducky1 on Jun 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi 1ducky1, we were able to verify this information with our support team. The answer is yes to both. The shower panel can be used for either new or pre-existing plumbing. The panel has (2) 1/2" connector flexible supply hoses that would connect to the hot and cold water lines. The shower panel may be able to cover the holes that are already there, depending on where they are. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 19, 2013
Wanted to purchase this but consulted with my plumber and he is asking what gauge of water pipes is needed to make pressure effective, do we need 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch gauge pipes?chajan on Sep 25, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
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
