I had a total remodel of my 2nd bath. I picked everything individually. I loved the look of this shower panel, read reviews both good and bad. I also went to the mfg. website to watch an install video to see if I saw any conflicts with my project. I ordered this unit and when my contractor saw it he said "wow"...and he does some pretty fancy jobs. I showed him the video, he checked all the parts and installed it with very little effort. Everyone who has seen it has been impressed. Everything works as described. I may have a similar unit installed in my master bath (and it doesn't even need it). Similar models that cost so much more could not have been any more impressive than this unit. I am very pleased with the looks and performance.
Wanted to wait to review after the Tower had been installed for a month. If you are looking for a shower massage tower, this is one! Great quality, well made, all stainless steel. Good connections on the back. This shower lives up to everything I had read in other reviews. The big shower head is strong and pulses, fantastic to just stand under it and let the water flood over you. The 2 sets of adjustable shower massage nozzles are unbelieveable. When you turn on the 2 set of massage nozzles and the overhead shower head the feeling is truly relaxing. Very little noticeable pressure change but there is some. You can even turn on the handheld at the same time and still get good pressure. As far as the long hose hitting the floor I just loop it over the nozzle. This shower was installed as part of a masterbath update into a full size walk in shower. My contractor was so impressed with the quality and the VERY reasonable price as compared to other's he's seen that he wants one for when he does his bath update. If you don't want to be disappointed buy this, the best money I've spent in a long time!!!
We actually bought 2 different Fresca shower massage panels: the Fresca Pavia Silver Thermostatic Shower Massage Panel and the Fresca Verona Silver Thermostatic Shower Massage Panel. We are using them for 1,5 months and love them both! Our contractor said they are well made and really easy to install. The whole panel is made of stainless steel including the hand held and seem to be very sturdy. Both shower panels keep the water pressure as well the water flow despite using any sink or toilet at the same time. The rain shower is really nice and soft even if you tilt the Pavia shower head. The tub spouts are long enough for installing the panel above a bath tub, we actually have a whirlpool tub (4 1/2 inch wide) and the spout is still long enough (although you can easily replace the spout if you need a longer one). Pavia has a tiltable shower head, the one on Verona is fixed. The Pavia-hand held needs extra drilling to fix it on the wall (the Verona hand held is attached to the panel). The thermostat in Pavia seems to allow warmer water then Verona - both have a security knob. So, if you like to shower really warm, you should rather go for the Pavia panel. The massage jets are adjustable on both panels. They are a bit softer than in a real spa, but still very nice.
