It's pretty common knowledge that I can't take a shower without music....some days I will use up all the hot water just so I can "finish my set". Now the only thing missing in my little off-off-off-way off Broadway productions has been ambiance. Until now. We have installed the HotelSpa Spectrum Ultra-Luxury 7-Setting 7-Color LED Hand Shower and it really is a cool product......and not just because it turns your shower into a disco....(but it does....and that is cool!!) My thoughts on this product: Setting it up was a breeze.....once we got our old shower head off. Our row home was built in 1900 and, while it has been updated and renovated through the years, I don't think the plumbing has been touched since the 80's.....we tried for over a week to remove a shower head from any of our bathrooms....and three strikes. I was just about to give up when we had a repairman over to service our heater and I asked him if he had any ideas. He and my husband were able to 'two-wrench-it' and get the shower head in our guest bathroom removed after a few tries and a lot of muscle. Having said that, I know several other people have been able to remove their old fixture with ease, so I would expect you to not have nearly the trouble we did. Now that the hard work was out of the way.....it was smooth sailing from there. Installation really did only take 5 minutes. The kit comes with everything you'll need, down to the white plumber's tape if you need it (my husband was really impressed that it was included). It was just a matter of lining up, screwing in, and voila - no tools needed. I did receive this in order to provide my honest feedback on it, and while we've only been using this for less than a week, but we've had no squeaks, leaks, or a drop in water pressure. I have no complaints, but will update my review should things change as time goes on. If I had to be picky and say one thing I'd change about it, I'd like the actual shower head to be a little heavier/more solid -- I feel like if I dropped it or it clanked up against the wall too hard, it might break. It's funny that even though we both have our own bathroom, my husband and I both have now started taking our showers in the guest bath so we can use this shower head! He told me today that he was late leaving for work because he was enjoying the shower so much! As for me, my shower lounge act has never been better!! (and, oddly enough, I'm actually looking forward to cleaning the tub now as this will make rinsing it off a lot easier!!)
This has been a great purchase for my bathroom. My contractor install it from the ceiling rather than the wall. He purchased a crime pipe from plumbing store. I rate this fixture a 5 star. So glad I got it. It is safe be of the color to watch the water temperature change and hop in the shower.
If you have a pressure reducer where the water enters your homde plumbing, as I do, remove the flow restrictor in this showerhead! You will get adequate pressure. If your system is wide open, leave the restrictor in. A very good value.
