Takeaway: Quick and simple installation, leak-free, durable; powerful jets w/various spray patterns.

You’ll receive a 5 ft shower hose, the shower head, a showerhead holder, Teflon tape, and 2 extra rubber washers. The hose has a chromed metal exterior with two protective caps and two threaded end caps that need to be removed prior to installation. Inside each connection is a pre-installed rubber washer on brass fittings, so it’s nice that you get two spares in case these wear out. The inside of the hose is not attached to the casing and has a braided nylon fabric construction resistant to leaks and bursting. The shower holder is plastic and lightweight. It has a filter washer pre-installed in the input side and sits on a ball joint. However, I found that it’s really tight on there and I could adjust its position at all, so I’m not certain that it’s actually designed to change position at all. At the back side of the holder bracket is a rubber grip that will hold the showerhead in place when placed in the bracket.

When installing the shower hose, the smaller nut attaches to the water outlet of the holder, while the other side attaches to the shower head. The showerhead itself is also made of plastic and has a 5” handle. The sprayer measures 4.5” x 4”. There are 9 rows and 8 columns of jets composed of small rubber nibs. Eight of them are larger which will affect the spray pattern and pressure when you change modes. Just under the sprayer and the top side of the handle, is a switch that you can press with your right thumb. This switches the mode of the sprayer for different patterns and water pressure. The switch clicks solidly each time it is pressed and there are 6 different modes. You’ll need to remove the protective cap over the threaded input connector, which is also made of plastic. This connects with the larger connector of the hose and it should be sufficient to hand-tighten for a leak-free connection. The rubber ring on the middle of the connector helps the wand stay put when placed in the holder.

I was able to install the hose and showerhead onto my existing dual fixture showerhead mount, rather than using the included single fixture mount. I just attached hose to the lower input line. Since the hose has a washer, I didn’t need to use any Teflon tape, but if your connection leaks, you may want to use one or two wraps to ensure a leak-free connection. These are the different spray patterns: the first is a full spray that uses all the small nozzles, which provides a consistent yet gentle stream of water. Clicking the trigger to the next mode, this uses only the two outer most rings, reducing the number of nozzles and increasing the pressure. The next mode adds the 8 large nozzles which spray in a cone pattern adding additional pressure and a massage-like feel. The next mode is just the 8 cone sprayers which is a wide and hard pattern. The next mode adds in the 16 inner-most small nozzles reducing some of the pressure and mixing a medium hard spray with a gentler stream. And the last mode is just the inner-most small nozzles, which focus the streams into a small area for an intense water massage, though it tends to feel a bit sharp due to the maximum pressure.

As for the showering experience, it’s quite nice. You can have a gentle full stream shower for waking up in the morning, increase the pressure for an extra deep clean like blasting beach sand out of your hair, or increase the focus and pressure for a relaxing massage to relieve ache-y muscles. The range of water patterns and ease of switching between them means you can choose the mode that meets your needs at the press of a button. This showerhead was super easy to install and works great without any leaks to meet all of your needs.
