The shower stall in our master bathroom is one of those drop-in fiberglass dealies that all of the tract home builders are using. I wasn't about to start cutting and drilling my way around it and I certainly didn't want to mess around with re-plumbing the system (I sweated pipes during a shower installation once and nearly burnt down our house) so this cut out a large number of shower systems with such requirements. Speaking of requirements, here was what I wanted:
-Rain shower head
-Extended shower arm
-Handheld unit with adjustable flow
-Minimal plumbing required
The PULSE Showerspas line has excellent reviews, installs in less than an hour (according to the box) and is built like a tank. You know how you can just tell that a product is built to last the first time you touch it? This is one of those products. The fittings, the valves, the finish, even the shower heads themselves are all made very well. Full disclosure - I actually ordered another showerhead/handheld combo unit and as soon as I took it out of the shoebox it was in immediately repacked it and sent it back. It was cheaply made and destined for failure. Anyway, I can't tell you how happy I am with this purchase.
As far as installation goes, it took me about 90 minutes. I wouldn't call my installation typical, though, as I had to mess around with the shower neck length coming out of the wall to get it right. The included brass nipple that connects to the water line in the wall was just a bit too long so I ended up using the old escutcheon to fill some of the gap (see the close-up image). There's still a bit of brass showing, but I don't mind it all that much. Basically, you put the unit together and everything connects with hose fittings and rubber o-rings. They even include little baggies with a schmear of grease for the o-rings. Oh, and an allen wrench is also included for the set screws. They truly thought of everything. You will need to supply your own pipe wrenches and pliers, though. As far as home improvement installs go, this was about as painless as they get. There was one minor thing. The adhesive pad that attaches the bottom of the vertical pipe to the shower wall has a peel-off part that is a bit of a PITA to remove. And be careful that you've got everything plumb before you press it to the shower wall, because that sucker is very sticky. Seriously. It won't come back off.
I've read online where some people have removed the check valves and other little pieces to improve their water flow rates, but I didn't have to monkey around with any of that. Our house has pretty killer pressure as it is, so even when running both the handheld unit and overhead rainshower head at the same time we get amazing flow. Lucked out in this aspect.
Another great feature is the ratcheted adjustment into which the handheld unit sets. You adjust it and it stays put. A small but important feature that not every combo unit like this has.
Something else you need to be aware of, the piping between the handheld unit and the overhead big shower head holds a pretty good amount of water. This means that as you're showering and using one or the other shower heads, the one you're not using is losing temperature. This is especially true of the overhead piece. I'm not saying it'll get cold, but it will cool down significantly and when you switch the valve from one to another you will notice. Also, make sure you've run hot water through both units before you get in the shower. That is, unless you like getting a few cups of ice cold water dumped on your head. I speak from experience on this one. It is a good way to get the heart rate up, though.
So there you have it. Sure, you're probably not used to spending $150 on a shower head, but trust me when I tell you, you won't regret it. Along with toilet paper and beer, add shower heads to the list of things that are worth splurging on.
Unfortunately I ordered it assuming I'd be installing it within a week of delivery but the move was delayed by a tiling issue and today I am two days beyond Amazon Prime's return date. Not Amazon's problem, totally mine.
Bottom line is: My advice is don't buy this shower, it used to be a really great product, now they seem to have cheapened the quality and the pre-assembly obviously leaves much to be desired.
This unit is really well made and should work for a long time. The shower experience is awesome and I plan on upgrading the other bathrooms in our house with this fixture. I would recommend this to anyone.
