Great, with one big exception
Chris from HOUSTON, TX– Verified Buyer
The look of this unit is fabulous. Be sure you view the spec sheets (pdf's) and measure out the dimensions IN YOUR SHOWER, especially the distance between the wall of the shower and the rainhead shower: it sticks out quite a bit, so it wouldn't be a great choice for smaller showers. We installed ours in a typical bathtub/shower, though, and it works fine. The function of the unit is great, too, but with one big exception: it "sings." Depending on whether the water is being diverted to the rainhead or the handheld head, a distinct, rather loud "whine" is easily heard even outside the bathroom and in the next room. The tone of the whining is very specific: a higher pitch for the rainhead and a lower tone for the handheld. We had this unit professionally installed during a remodel, so I don't think it's an installation issue. The tone is not heard when the water is coming out of the tub filler, so it's definitely an issue within the shower system unit. We are very disappointed since the unit is installed via drilling it into the tile: it is not removable so that means we will have to deal with this really annoying noise for a long time. I'm going to work with Wayfair / the manufacturer to see if there is an adjustment or a "tweak" or a part that can be replaced: our plumbers doubt it, but surely if this effect is due to the design of the unit / diverter, it would be consistent among ALL units, and would have been noted in other reviews. Not sure if I can "edit" or "update" reviews, but I will try to once / if we have a resolution.
great "rain" shower system
anne from sarasota, FL– Verified Buyer
the quality of product is good, functions well. it is fairly large, perfect size for my walk in shower. if you are expecting a stimulating shower don't get this. it is a very gentle "rain" shower. takes awhile to rinse my hair under this shower head, but on the other hand it doesn't spray all over my glass enclosure so no squeegeeing needed.
Make sure that you receive the on/off valve before the plumbers show up!
Dorie from Belle Haven, VA– Verified Buyer
I was so excited to find this shower faucet because my husband is 6' 4" and I am 5'4". The shower head slides up and down on the pole so that we can each have it at the height we want. The box arrived and I checked the contents to make sure that there were no missing parts. I thought it was all their until the plumber showed up and asked where the on/off faucet was. What??? The box sent to me was just a shower head replacement and not the complete system as stated online. When calling Wayfair they tried to help, but the part is on backorder for a week and they could only offer me a $35 credit. My options were: put off the remodel for 2 weeks, which meant rescheduling tile, plumbing....NO THANK YOU, or drive 1.5 hours to the nearest box store for a faucet to keep the remodel on schedule and return this shower system. Unfortunately the box store had nothing like this in stock to purchase so I had to buy one for $179 just for the on/off valve after spending $220 on this one. So frustrating! I will have to wait until the remodel is complete to comment on the function and quality of the product, but for now I can say: It looks good but if you order it make sure you have the on/off valve and if not, call Wayfair immediately to make sure it doesn't mess up your remodel schedule. I will come back and update my review once the remodel is done, but for now, one star.
Rain shower in a hurry.
Denise from Wadsworth, IL– Verified Buyer
I knew that I wanted this shower system when I first decided to have my shower remodeled. Of course no one knew what I was talking about. My bathroom remodeler said he puts the Kauai system in all the time but he didn't know where the clients purchased them. i watch a lot of HGTV and figured I'd give Wayfair a look. Sure enough there it was and I needed by the next day. Ordered it early in the morning, paid for next day delivery, and it was at my door before noon the next day. Thanks Wayfair, you saved the day.
Love love love!!!
Erinn from Pasadena, CA– Verified Buyer
I love this shower system. It was very easy to install, and this is a very high quality item. I went shopping at all the home improvement stores for a good rain shower, and most of them were made of low quality stuff, for a higher price than this one! I ordered this and it truly is perfect. Excellent price, excellent quality..... definitely would recommend this to anyone. As a matter of fact, my contractor who installed it ordered one for himself as well!
kauai rain shower system
Kathryn from Roanoke, VA– Verified Buyer
Have not installed this yet, but it looks just like the picture and is of good quality. The valve does not come with this shower system and has to be purchased separately. From what I understand the bar with the movable shower head is not attached to the wall of the shower, but hangs from the rain shower head. Hope it works okay!
Kauai Rain Shower System
Amy from Hopewell Junction, NY– Verified Buyer
The Kauai Rain Shower System arrived packaged securely. As per other reviewers, the rain shower head does stick out quite a bit but I had already measured the shower to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. I have a contractor doing a gut job on my bathroom so I wouldn't know if it was easy to install or not. The unit looks and feels nice and solid.
Looks like a spa
Marisa from Charlotte NC– Verified Buyer
We gutted our master bath and even though we could have had a rain shower head in the ceiling, I liked the look of this unit and that fact that it had an integrated sprayer.
Elegant Shower Head
Kim from Norcross, GA– Verified Buyer
This is one elegant shower head without breaking your wallet! If you are looking for a great, nice-looking rain shower head, this is it. Very well constructed with a hand-held shower head for easy cleaning of shower and tub. I looked around for comparable products and they all cost more than twice. I'm really happy with my purchase.
Plumber said its really nice?
Nancy from Austin, TX– Verified Buyer– Top 500 Reviewer
We haven't used this yet, but our plumber says it looks like a really nice, well-made piece - albeit not a name he knows. We did get a box that appeared open on the first delivery so I called Wayfair and they shipped another one right away without even having to return the first. Great service!!
