To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have previously written a very negative review with one star because the led light only worked for a couple of months. I was very disappointing. However, for some reason it has started working again and now works fine. I have therefore modified my review. The colours are not very intense, though. The selection of water jets is excellent.
This is the "luxury" edition of their other showerhead. HotelSpa All Chrome 5 Setting LED/LCD Handheld Shower-Head with Lighted LCD Temperature Display by Top Brand Manufacturer! Color of LED lights changes automatically according to water temperatureodes where this one has 7. This one only lights up, as described in the product description. The other model also has a digital temp read out. Upgraded from the 5 to the 7 rain intensities. ALMOST easier than I could have wished for... I thought I could simply swap showerheads but as it turns out the metal hose that matches the showerhead is what needs swapped (as well). Presuming your old shower head isn't hard water WELDED in place, this is a no tools installation. If you need a tool it would be a channel lock and a cloth to keep from damaging the finish on the old connection. Be sure to clean ALL of the old teflon tape from the existing pipe threads before adding the new, included in the box, teflon. Remember wrap the tape same direction you are tightening the NEW connection. 2 wraps is plenty, more than 3 and you are asking for trouble.
I bought this on the spur of the moment via an Amazon instant sale, and didn't install it until I moved to a new house a year later. It worked great, and visitors were amused by the colors. The colors actually had a function to warn you when the water was getting too hot (red) or too cold (blue).
The showerhead still works as a showerhead, but after about a year the colors stopped. I think the mechanism inside got stuck due to minerals in the hard water. I didn't try to take it apart to see if I could fix it, because the water part was still working ok.
Super simple install and mod to work with our already low-flow shower. Really love the temperature visual aspect of this shower head and the multiple modes (including a "water saver" option) are a nice plus. Only reason for the star deductions are the shrieking cry it has started after five months of use. So far, quickly shifting between modes or flipping the diverter valve seems a bit enough of a jolt to get everything moving to stop the noise. Pretty sure the shrieking is from the internal generator that uses water flow to power the LEDs. When it shrieks, the light flickers or shuts off entirely leading to the assumption that the noise is from the rotor becoming jammed or stuck and unable to rotate. When the shock treatment no longer helps solving this, we'll have to toss or disassemble this thing to try to fix it; the noise is deafening and so very irritating - especially when you're just waking up in the morning before your coffee. [Update June 2022] Almost exactly four months after purchase, the shower head has started its infamous banshee cry and the previous tricks to reset the rotor and silence it are no longer working. This thing will be going into the bin now. Thankfully, the original price was much lower than what it shows currently; this product will never be worth more than thirty bucks. I will be replacing with a proper brand name option that won't make me hate my mornings even more than I already do and it costs only slightly more.
It's early and I don't much feel like typing out a short story so let me just tell you what the problem is.
I'm on my 2nd shower head after returning the first for the exact same issue so I'm assuming this isn't just a rare occurance.
After about 3 weeks of use the leds will start to flash and about a week later the shower head will, out of absolutely nowhere, start making an insanely loud high pitched scream. This sound will come and go, it will occur sometimes immediately, sometimes 10 minutes after being turned on, and sometimes not at all but it WILL continue to happen seemingly at random and will be loud enough to hear from across the house when the bathroom door is closed.
When this sound is about 4 inches from your head and you've just barely woken up it will get very oldvery fast.
Wow just wow! This thing is just plain cool! I read most all the reviews and decided upon this one. The noise is very low and does not detract at all from the experience. The color is much brighter than I anticipated which is awesome. Easy to install and came with all the parts needed. Further the spray patterns can be chosen by turning the dial. Usually these types of dials I found to leak. But not this one! High quality and construction here. You will simply love it, really! The cheaper ones may leak and be more noisy adn i did not even want to go there. Who would of thought something like this would inspire me to WANT to take a shower! Therefore I would highly recommend this item!
I purchased this being excited! It turns the three different colors, it also make quite a loud noise because it’s spinning to turn on the lights. (Which I did pay attrition from other reviews) some products I give a lot of time before a review to really test them. Well it’s been only 7 months and this shower head a failed!! Still makes the same noise but the Lights Do Not Work Anymore!! Maybe with a little more research find a good product if your really looking into a light shower head. Or save the money and buy a nice 10” rain shower head. You will probably be as just or more happy.
I had an ugly, old fashioned shower head in my apartment. I wanted to replace the head with something that would be easy to install and remove later if I move. I found this fixture during all the sales around Christmas and it was a great affordable price. The best thing about this shower head was the ease of install. I have never done this before and I was able to install this by myself very easily. There are no leaks! The color changing LEDs are a blast, but also very practial. I now know before I step foot in the shower if the water is cold, warm, hot, or scalding hot. This fixture looks great and appears far more expensive than it is. I do wish the hose was a bit longer to reach the far end of the shower better, but it's a small issue.
We’ve just installed this shower head and it works great. It was very easy to install, and we turned it on and the colors are nice. It’s not super bright, so we plan on adding some LED lights around the bathroom to help light it up. I definitely recommend.
Update: It lasted about a year then we had to throw it away.
Good shower head, with decent water pressure. Not a fan of the spray options, there are 7 different levels, but not a middle level. It's either pretty light or really heavy. There is a hum, as other reviewers suggest, from the power within the shower head, but honestly, it doesn't bother me at all. It only hums when its running and at that point, the water is louder than the hum anyways. The colors were blue for cold, green for warm, and red for hot. I do wish it was customizable as to the temperature for each color, but the current configuration isn't bad. After a few months, the lights stopped lighting the different colors, unfortunately, but it is still a good shower head.
