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.
The hose worked very well for a while but finally began leaking on the end of the hose where the shower head is attached. I tried everything! Plumbers tape (it's the thicker pink one!) and then a new rubber seal. No luck. Oh well.
I keep buying these hoses and keep getting ones that fail miserably within a few months of basic use in a shower. This one's no different. Spouted leaks repeatedly until it finally failed completely and cracked open.
I wouldn't recommend. I used it daily and at about 6 months the spiral hose covering would come disconnected on one end exposing the hose. I dealt with it, as it could be screwed back in. Then a week ago the house near that end busted. This hose is not hardy enough for daily use.
I would have given this 5 stars until it sprung a leak. It was just past the return window, but Amazon customer service agreed to send a replacement. :) I do see a few other reports of leaky hoses, but there are a lot of reviews and a 4.5 star rating, so I'll hope durability is better on the next one.
I have a newer Moen shower head/mount that was purchased at a common big-box hardware store. The end of the hose with the tapered collar that sits in the shower head mount is smaller than the original and it sits loosely in the mount.
The product itself seems to be of decent quality but I don't want my shower head flopping around in the mount so this will have to be sent back!
