Aesthetic, Practical, Safety-Oriented
JJ from Long Island, NY– Verified Buyer
I am very happy with my purchase. I wanted a shower system that 1) includes anti-scald and balanced pressure features, 2) can include an ADA grabbar since falling in a shower is dangerous, 3) has a great shower head, and 4) looks good on the wall.
1, The fact that Speakman makes speciality shower valves for mfg safety appeals to me, and our plumber did not have any trouble installing it (although this is the first Speakman hes installed).
2) I ordered a Speakman grab bar to replace the slide bar that came with it because the Speakman parts are interchangeable (GREAT! Rather than a separate grab bar, the slide bar will support a serious yank or continuously holding weight and is a better diameter for holding on).
3) I ordered a Speakman Icon showerhead (the type used in some of the various resorts weve visited where my husband LOVED the showers) and really like it.
4) I love the look of the shower -- clean, small footprint to the trim
The only issues I might mention the valve for hotcold turns clockwise (which surprised us) and which was, initially, disconcerting. And the handheld hose split after about 8 showers (must have been defective) but Wayfair (and Speakman) are sending us a replacement asap, with apologies, and both say this is unusual. A hose breaking is an easy fix. Getting high-quality valves and high-quality shower experience, along with safety and aesthetics, are what really matter!
