For a budget model, this is a very durable showerhead, although it requires a lot of maintenance to keep it clean.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It's very durable
Unlike the majority of budget showerheads, this one is made out of a metal alloy. It's much more durable than the plastic ones.
Pro It's suitable both for very tall and shorter people
Together with the shower arm, the total height of the showerhead has a range of 18 inches up or down. Accounting for the height you install it on, both taller and shorter people in your household should be able to use it comfortably.
Pro It provides good water pressure
The water stream coming from the showerhead is strong even if the water pressure in your home isn't very high.
Pro It's easy to install
The installation is as easy as removing the old showerhead, wrapping some Teflon tape around the pipe, and screwing the new one in. Though be careful not to scratch your appliances with a wrench.
Con Sludge and residue tend to build up inside
Especially if you have hard water at home, residue will start to accumulate inside the showerhead. The sharp corners in the shower arm cause water to collect there, which may cause mold to grow. As an owner of this showerhead, you would be advised to pay a lot of attention to maintenance - drain and clean it regularly.
Con You have to tinker with it to get a better water flow
Right out of the box, there is a rubber water flow restrictor placed inside the showerhead. To get a better stream, you should carefully disassemble the showerhead and remove the restrictor.
Con It wouldn't fit in every shower stall
The showerhead may not fit well in smaller shower stalls because of the comparatively long 12-inch shower arm.
Con Water may leak from the joints of the setup
There are two swivel joints that connect the showerhead, the shower arm, and the pipe. This means that there are two potential points where leaking could start. To avoid that, joints could be tightened with pliers. If you tighten the joints too much, however, it will become much harder to adjust the height of the shower arm.
