Of course, when you buy a German made product from a leading manufacturer, you have to expect it to cost more than a no-name knock-off, but this virtually all-plastic 6-inch shower head is a big ask from me.
In the box, you get a very streamlined looking hand-held shower head, a rubber washer for the bottom fitting, and a multi-language instruction booklet that suggests that “this unit be installed by a licensed, professional plumber.” Yeah, right.
With reasonable household water pressure, this head delivers plenty of water volume, as the one I ordered is the 2.5GPM model. If local restrictions require that you must buy the 1.75GPM model, I believe that the well-engineered water delivery nozzles will still produce a satisfying and effective shower.
I particularly like the feel of the “PowderRain” setting that covers you with what feels like a huge number of very soft tiny streams of very pleasing “soft” feeling water. The PowderRain setting delivers droplets that barely splash, and therefore give you a feeling of being enveloped in a soft blanket of water that rinses soap off very effectively but is gentle even on the face. My wife thinks that this setting is too gentle to use for rinsing shampoo out of her hair and prefers the “IntenseRain” setting for that job.
A front mounted push button switches modes easily and includes a “massage spray” that emanates from a single center point in a thick pulsing stream. I do not find it as effective at “massage” as other wider coverage massaging shower heads I have tried.
So, in the end, this is a handsome 3-function shower head that is simple and delivers a satisfying shower, especially considering its “eco smart” status. It comes with a 5-year warranty and precise cleaning instructions. In my opinion, it’s a little pricey though, but in the “new” economy, maybe not that bad for a German engineered and manufactured fixture.
This is a single shower head that comes with nothing other than the head -- no tape, no hose, no anchor etc. It has 3 types of sprays, and with the one I have: 2.5 GPM, has a very powerful spray (exactly what I was looking for).
I'm reviewing the chrome version, which is essentially all plastic. It feels better than other cheap heads out there, but the quality doesn't equal the price paid.
However, it does work -- and works well. The stream is strong and clear.
If you want a no-non sense high flow head and this meshes with your decor -- then, yes, it's overpriced, but it works and works well.
I recently installed a hansgrohe handheld shower setup but didn't love the settings of the shower head that came with it. I wanted to try the hansgrohe Pulsify 6-inch Handheld Shower Head Modern 3-Spray PowderRain, IntenseRain, Pulsating Massage in Chrome, 24111001 because I was looking for a more intense spray. This shower head was incredibly easy to install.
I did get that with this shower head. I honestly don't feel a ton of difference between the PowderRain and IntenseRain. There are other shower heads that come with a softer PowderRain, but I like that this one is more intense. The Pulsating Massage is a little odd. It is similar to the Mono setting, with the water all getting through the center, though there is a pulse. I definitely try to aim the handshower before turning this setting on, because otherwise the jet sprays everywhere. I've used better massage shower heads.
This is a very lightweight handshower. It is comfortable to hold, but doesn't feel super durable. I think the price is a bit high, even for a brand name. Other than the price, I do think this is a decent shower head.
