I’m one of those people who will stand under the shower until the hot water runs out. It’s more about not wanting to face the cold air outside of the shower than it is about getting extra clean – just the cold air from where the water doesn’t hit is bad enough! I was pretty excited when I received an Aquagenix Razor Rainfall Shower from Interlink Products International to review.
Interlink Products International sells all sorts of showers and systems, including rainfall showers, LED showers, hand showers, even therapeutic showers. They also carry bathroom accessories and personal care items. The Aquagenix Razor Rainfall Shower is actually a complete kit that includes a 15″ arch-design extension arm and a 9″ round rainfall shower head. It also comes with two spare rubber washers (one thick and one thin) and thread seal tape.
I was quite happy that this shower head comes with an extension arm – both my husband and I are tall, my husband being tall enough (at 6’8) that most showers are too low for him to shower comfortably. The extension arm is adjustable with 3 feet of vertical movement range. And the showerhead has 105 rub-clean jets spread around the 9″ shower head for extra-wide body coverage, with a 2.5 GPM Flow Rate.
Installation is really easy – it comes with a simple one-page instruction sheet to guide you if you’ve never swapped out a showerhead before. You don’t need any tools, everything is designed to be tightened by hand.
So the first step is to remove your old shower head – you should be able to unscrew it by hand.
Next, you should clean and dry the threads on the end of the shower arm, and then wrap the thread seal tape around the threads (2 or 3 layers, then press the tape down into the threads). Then you screw the extension arm onto the shower arm. There’s already a washer in the opening, but you can add the spare thin washer if you need to adjust it to get the alignment right.
Then you screw the shower head onto the end of the extension arm. Unfortunately, this is where I ran into a small problem – while I was hand-tightening the shower head onto the extension arm, the attachment piece at the top of the shower head snapped off. I’m not sure if I received a faulty product (which can happen to even the best of companies) or if I just don’t know my own strength – either way, I was quite sad that I wasn’t going to get to enjoy a luxurious rainfall shower after all! But here’s what it would have looked like fully installed (less my hand holding it in place) had it not broken.
I did contact customer service to see if I could get a replacement, but due to my posting deadline I’m unable to wait until I hear back from them to get this review up on the blog. (And it’s a 3-day weekend, so it could be a few days before someone is in their office to respond). In a way, it could be a good thing that the product broke, as I get a real-life opportunity to check out their customer service! I’ll be sure to come back and update this post with how the problem is resolved.
So anyway, I was obviously unable to take a picture of the shower head in action, so here’s an image from the Amazon product listing to show what it looks like if you DON’T break it while you’re installing it.
In addition to the round shower head I received, there’s also a square shower head!
This product (which comes with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects) is available for purchase on Amazon for $49.99 at the time of this posting. You can also purchase the Aquagenix Razor Mega Size Rainfall Shower directly from the Interlink Products International website ($79.99 at the time of this posting).
