This shower head is expensive 100 CAD but it is what it should be. Many streams of warm to hot water coursing over a tired body. Just the one setting but who needs more. Quality and simplicity.

This has got to be the best showerhead I have ever owned. My wife and I both love it. It looks nice, doesn’t leak and both feels and sounds like a warm summer rain shower. Best part is I got it from Warehouse deals for an amazing price. Super happy with this one!

If you have never tried one of these aerating shower heads, it really revolutionizes the shower experience more than a standard showerhead that simply sprays streams of water. Although those are perfectly fine, and I have used them for years, it was a stay at a hotel which employed one of these aerating models that got me to purchase one for the house. The aerating showerhead, which is generally larger in diameter than the standard type, draws in air and mixes it with the water so that you receive more of a rain-like experience when you shower. It makes the water more comfortable in the sense that it has a softer feel due to the air mixed in with the water, and gives a wider water dispersal pattern. Its truly a nice experience.
This Kohler model feels and looks and great, and gives a feel of real quality when you remove it from its box. I ordered the chrome finish model, but there are other finishes available to match your taste. I had it installed on my standard shower pipe in less than three minutes, and it has made a big difference since using it. It can actually shorten your shower time due to its water dispersal pattern. Make sure you wrap some Teflon tape around the shower pipe threads so you don’t have any leakage. (This is a great choice:
Everflow 812 PTFE Thread Seal Tape for Plumbers, White 3/4 Inch x 260 Inch
; very inexpensive and works great, but note that it is an “add-on” item, so order it when you place another order from Amazon at $25 or more so you get free shipping.)
The only thing you MIGHT not like quite so much is that aerating models, because they are drawing in air to achieve this spray pattern, make some noise during operation. It’s not obnoxiously loud, and since there is actually some DECREASE in the sound of the water hitting the shower stall, it may somewhat even out in absolute volume. But it is a different type of sound that you might have a slight adjustment too at first, but nothing really that bothersome. In fact, I find the noise more relaxing than the noise made by my old “standard” shower head.
You can mount these two ways. You can either just directly attach to the shower pipe in your shower, with the head facing you at an angle like a standard shower head. Some people, however, like to mount these higher and have them OVER their bodies for a real “rain effect.” If you wish to do that, you will need an extender arm, also easily attached, and I can recommend the
Adjustable Shower Head Extension Arm – 10 Inch Brass Shower Arm Extender Hardware – Chrome
, which is also high quality, and looks great with the Kohler showerhead.
Five stars for quality, looks, and most importantly, functionality!
Note:After months of use, you may get on any showerhead a buildup of hard water deposits. A lot of people do not know a simple trick for easily cleaning and removing this. You simply get a plastic bucket, fill it with white vinegar, remove the showerhead, and fully submerge it in the vineger for a couple of hours. After that, pull it out, rinse it off, and most all of the deposits will be magically gone. No muss, no fuss!

Sturdy, ridiculously easy to install shower head with large, strong, consistent spray. Makes showering faster. Great for long hair. Not fancy, only 1 setting. Most important are no plastic parts. 4 stars because it is pricey for what it is.

After a trip where I noticed that many of today’s motel/hotels have changed from the multi-function blast-o-matic showerheads to rain-type, I decided to upgrade several bathrooms. This model seemed to closely match a Kohler that I saw in one of the hotels I stayed at so I bought three of them. They work fine. The “aeration” isn’t really aeration, it’s just that the spray nozzle diameter is such that at normal shower pressure, each spray “jet” breaks up a few inches out of the shower-head, giving a modest velocity rain effect.
It’s hard to give five stars to something I’ve only had a few weeks, because I don’t know how durable it will be.
However, I noticed that the fastening nut appears to be of plated brass (that’s good), and that, if you use a modest amount of teflon tape, it doesn’t leak.
As an amusing side note, I’ll say that I used a different solution in the master bath shower that my wife uses. After seeing this showerhead, she said, “It’s an upgrade, and fine for guests, but I want one that’s as big as a dinner plate.” So, that is what she got!

An excellent shower head, well worth the money. All chrome without any plastic so looks great. Head has a very nice and strong water flow, and the head swivels so you can easily adjust it. Very easy to install. Highly recommended. Initial research led me to believe this is made in the USA, but it is made in China.

They must have changed the flow restriction device recently because mine is very different than what others described. There is a 5mm thick piece of white hard plastic with a hole the size of a pinpoint for water to flow through it, ABOVE the level of the mesh filter. With the showerhead as is, I could barely get water to dribble out of the thing after it was installed. I could not pry out this hard plastic flow restrictor as it is essentially super-glued into the showerhead. I actually had to drill a hole in it in order to allow a pathway for water to flow through, and finally now I get some flow. Would absolutely never buy this product again, and can never recommend it to anyone the way it is. I imagine all of the good reviews in here are for some older model.

It’s pressure is very good and the drops are large with great body coverage. It’s a lot of water, felt like more water coming from it than the average shower head. It also felt like the sprays had a hollow feeling, I know that’s hard to comprehend it’s the best way I can explain it. Nice shower head, solid Heavy feel, Some plastic on the front around where the rubber spray points are. Easy to pivot this shower head. . It would be very easy to keep the outside clean also.
However… I didn’t like 2 things. Here’s why I returned it. The shower head is very loud. When we removed it from the install to return it, it held ALOT of water. It took very vigorous shaking to remove the water to repackage it. Since this shower head held onto so much water even after removal, I’m sure the lime scale In our water supply here would build up inside and keep it from working properly. This is no way to clean the inside. The spinning motion in this shower head has to move and with any sort of scale buildup inside of it , I didn’t think it would continue to work properly.

The quality and feel of this single-function showerhead is great. Also, glad we went for the brushed Nickel one as the material looks so high end and worth the money difference. The water flow is strong enough but if you are looking for higher water pressure showerhead, I would recommend you go for one with different settings. We were so happy with the first one so bought another one in a week to replace another showerhead.
