Anystream Shower Technology
With our Anystream Shower Technology, all it takes is a simple rotation of the shower head’s handle to seamlessly transition between diverse water spray patterns.
With the Intense water spray pattern, not a single spray leaving the adjustable shower head intersects - resulting in a remarkably powerful, sensual experience which leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean and pleasantly tingly.
Gentle and heavy, the Rain water spray setting creates a soothing escape, for a luxurious, spa-like sensation in your own home bathroom. Every water drop is purposely larger to retain heat longer, which feels warm and wonderful on your skin.

My version of a successful shower is the peace of mind of knowing that when I step out, one full layer of epidermis has been thoroughly expunged. I live for the feeling of pure, unadulterated water power pressure washing everything away.
So imagine my disappointment when my first ever house purchase, though full of water pressure potential, left something to be desired. The cleansing ability lay dormant, with no device present to harness this latent power. Undeterred, I searched until the instrument of my shower salvation was discovered.
The Speakman S-2252 Anystream is one of those dying breeds that lives by the ages old yet dying creed, "Do one thing, and do it well." This shower head delivers power. Raw, unapologetic power. But that is something to be described a little later.
The first thing you notice about this shower head is that, despite it's rather diminutive size, it is hefty. There is no mistaking whether this item is made of quality materials. Gravity and mass make sure of that. Solid brass, made to last.
The second trait is simplicity. There is no rotary dial with 100 settings. There is simply a lever on the side that moves the 8 nozzles on the face of the head in and out. When moved in the nozzles "squeeze" the water, like your finger covering the end of a hose, giving you defined jets of water and higher pressure. When moved out the nozzles allow free flow of water. Less pressure, but much higher flow. The beauty is that even with such simplicity, the lever can be stopped anywhere you like to adjust streams and pressure to your liking. You really do have the option of "Anystream".
Instructions for installation were included and were simple and clear. Like most shower heads, installation isn't rocket science, but if you've never done it before, the instructions make it pretty difficult to mess up. Also included was a small roll of Teflon tape. I was quite pleased with this, as I had misplaced my own roll. I also was pleasantly surprised to find that there is probably enough tape included for 3 installs, so the rest was thrown into the toolbox to be put to future use.
Then, to the moment of truth. I turned on the shower and no leakage. But the pressure. Oh! The pressure! I hadn't even stepped into the shower, yet I knew I had found what I had been looking for. I could feel the rush of air as it moved out of the way of the water. I smiled. This was the moment I had been waiting for. I stepped in...
I can only describe the shower experience with one word... Joy. My wife will testify to the fact that I was giggling like a schoolgirl the entire time. Like Michael Jordan clutching his first NBA championship trophy, I embraced the water as a long lost friend. This was what I had searched so long for. The perfect shower experience. When the nozzles of the head are turned out for full flow, it's like having someone continually pour buckets of water on your head. Need to rinse off some soap? Done. In an instant. There is no waiting here. But, when you really want to step to the next level, turn that lever all the way over and you will be met with something only a step below a fire hose. On its highest setting, the jets that flew from this shower head stung me. That's not an exaggeration. They literally stung. Some might not find that appealing. I, however, could do nothing but grin like the kid who just received his first bike.
Am I satisfied with my purchase? Oh yes. This shower head is not for the faint of heart. But if you have the courage to enter the heart of darkness, you WILL emerge victorious. You will emerge refreshed. You may even be a new person. But one thing is sure. Your flesh will be cleansed.
(One thing to note. As most shower heads do, this one came with a flow regulator pre-installed. It is a simple plastic piece fitted into the connector end of the head. If you are like me and don't enjoy feeling restricted in your shower taking, you will want to remove this piece. Of all the things that I tried, I would recommend a pick or pointed Phillips screwdriver and a hammer. After fiddling with it for a few minutes trying other methods, one good whack with the screwdriver on the inner edge of the plastic had it dislodged immediately. I am more than happy that I removed this piece. However, considering just how absurdly good this shower head is, I would suggest trying it with the regulator in place first. I would have to think that it will be more than capable even with governmental shackles on it. When I purchase another one of these for the guest bathroom I will most likely leave the regulator in at first to compare. I will try to remember to update this review at that time when I do.)
I’ve been screwed SOOOO many times by soooo many service people, I decided, in spite of Alzheimer’s onset, to try myself. SOOO GLAD I DID!!!
With much more effort than it would have taken someone many years my junior (but this old woman had little difficulty), I removed the worthless shower head that was installed 1 week ago, and replaced it with the Speakman 2252, turned on the shower (soaked my myself because I’m not what I used to be), then removed the black O ring without removing the white plastic...and OMG!!! FANTASTIC!!! I wish I had a diverter so I could clean the shower like I have always done to bathe my small dog and avoid buildup/scum on the tub, but this will be soo well worth the effort!!!
I am in the process of purchasing another one JUST LIKE IT so wherever I end up, when I leave here, I will have another and I will feel clean!!!
Pressure seems great, you may not even need to remove the flow restrictor though I am adding a photo showing what it looks like
Inside the back of the head you will see a black O ring. That is the restrictor. You can remove just this and then have the option of re-installing it later or completely remove all the white plastic inside for maximum flow but no option to restrict it again later
Pros: Good pressure, solid construction. Decent coverage
Cons: It is heavy, so caution required when installing. The adjustable settings doesn't change the stream significantly and it is far pricier to comparable shower heads
Get this if: you care about an all metal construction and want a high pressure shower and don't mind spending the money

When I used it, though, the water pressure wasn't any different from what comes out of my regular shower head (feels like a semi-forceful watering can) and the soaking feature, didn't work. The water kind of just poured out in a sad, slow flow.
The product discription and the many positive reviews for this product made me give it a try, as I was willing to spend a bit more to get a great shower experience.
Unfortunately, this shower head didn't magically turn my low pressure shower into something spectacular.... Very disappointed.
3 stars for construction and looks, but my current shower head works just as well as this one did. Will continue looking...
P.S. If you are upgrading your bathroom, and you are lucky enough to have two valves in your bath tub (one for hot and the other for cold), DO NOT replace your two valve system with a single valve. This is a huge mistake as you can't control the flow of water with a single valve, unless you are willing to spend a lot of money for a single valve with a flow control. Really wish I had realized this sooner.....
Be sure to check all your fittings and take measurements first as this is just the shower head a small amount of plumbers tape in this package.
*update: I finally decided to remove the black O-ring. I had to break off one of the tiny white tabs holding the flow restrictor in place to do so, but that is okay. It doesn't affect anything, i.e. the flow restrictor will not fall out as a result. So, without just the O-ring, I was able to get water flow up to 2.5 gpm. While still not fantastic, it is better.
I still give this showerhead 4 stars because of that great build quality, and the flow is pretty good. Most people will like it. But for those like my wife and I, the pressure is just not strong enough.
There aren't many products you can order that will have an immediately positive effect on your life. This, however, is one such item.
