Rated 1 out of 5 by RM Don't like the Kinetic Shower Head
We bought this shower head after looking at videos and thought it would be a great water saving feature. After using it for 10 days, we do not like it at all. The shower is advertised as "massaging", but it is rough and not soothing at all. The water hits so hard it goes out of the shower onto my tile floor. I am going to replace this shower head. I called Faucet Direct, and they will not exchange it since it was installed and I have to purchase a new one. I'm kind of sad about that, since everything else I have done with them has been awesome! Shipping is quick and returns are easy, but since we don't like this, they won't work with us. So beware when you buy a shower head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maret Works Great!
After using it for 6 months, very pleased. Delivers a nice stream and flow of water. The sliding temperature control is easy to operate and it keeps the cold/hot setting from the previous shower. Don't have the sudden low flow if a toilet is flushed anymore. There are some parts that are plastic like the circular trim around the handle, but it is not different in terms of looks. I was concerned whether this would hold up, but cleaning with a gentle cleanser works fine....no scratches and the finish is fine. Note that many manufacturers/products use plastic parts now as we found out while remodeling 4 bathrooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loribbb Great showerhead - hard to believe it's low-flow
We installed this several months ago, and I waited to review until I felt I could add to the comments. This is a very good shower head. As one reviewer mentions, the droplets of water are big - it's not a steady stream but a bunch of large drops coming at you. The droplets spread out, so some water will get onto the sides of the shower (not anything crazy messy, but some droplets may get in your eyes because there isn't a straight stream, especially if you mount the showerhead very high up on the wall like we did). One thing I didn't expect is that there is no adjustment available - there is one setting and that's it. If you want to be able to vary the stream, this isn't for you. I am very happy with this showerhead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murray H Easier to install than I expected
Our new home came with the "builder special" Delta Monitor 13 chrome shower faucet. After learning that the rough-in valve is universal I realized that I could very easily upgrade this to the Monitor 17 valve and trim in a better looking finish. There are youtube videos that very clearly show how easy it is. The only difficult part was removing the old handle because the screw was very corroded - I ended up breaking it off with a pry bar. We are very happy with the upgraded shower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gqb1971 Great product.
The volume control and temp control feature really sells itself. To achieve that in any other brand you need to buy a thermostatic valve and volume controls which can get quite pricey. This is the perfect solution and at a really affordable price. I have nothing to criticize on this product. Install was simple, functionality is great. I combined it with a diverter valve and hand shower and it works wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by abdbama Amazing low-flow shower
We recently purchased this bath-shower head combo for our bathroom reno, and are so happy with it. Feels solid and looks good. The temperature control is great: easy to use, holds the temp, and separate from the flow. Perfect.
The H20 Kinetic showerhead was a leap of faith. Low flow but doesn't feel low flow? Seriously, could it be true? Yes. It feels great-- these big, fat droplets that catch the light over the bath somehow, so not only does it feel great, but with the light shining down, the water glints like crystals. Somehow my bathroom has turned into a spa.
For what it's worth, in terms of the low-flow head, the only thing I'd add is that the H20 Kinetic seems best suited for one showerer at a time. The width of the stream is just right for one person, but I don't think it would give enough water contact for planning to shower with a partner. Could be a disappointment if you often shower as a couple, but that's probably true with any low-flow I'm guessing.
