Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Great shower head. I can't believe they don't stock it in store!
A good shower on low setting, awesome on the middle, the last is almost like a massage. Great pressure and eliminated problems of running out of hot water when two showers are going at the same time. Easy to install, resets to lowest flow when water is turned off. Easy to change settings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ty13 Great showers and efficient water use, but check review
If there were also a "Universal Appeal" rating, I'd give that rating maybe 3 stars. We gave it 5 stars for the provided ratings largely because we really like the clever spray pattern it produces "by default", which is produced by a small whirling disk in the showerhead. Installation was a snap, but it pays pays to read the directions before using it. There are three settings for spray pattern, with an automatic reset to the "default" one for lowest water flow when the flow is below a certain level...which also means until the water flow is turned up to that level, the default pattern is what you get. And that works very well for us, because that pattern is quite effective at giving you the feel of a large spray using a low water flow...clever engineering. The other two sprays are also very good, but would need to be chosen each shower because of the auto-reset to the default when the water is turned off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nukismom Excellent product!
This product is spectacular! It takes quite a bit of time for the hot water to reach the other side of my home that was built in 1966. The shower head has a great low flow feature (as do a lot of shower heads), but the spinner inside really makes it feel as if you have more than enough pressure to complete your shower. My only complaint would be that I may never have to use the higher flows. I thought perhaps I might use for rinsing my hair, but it wasn't necessary. However, if you do use the higher flow the quick return to low flow works like a charm. My husband even commented on how nice it was to have extra pressure from a low flow shower head. Shipping was super quick and it is well worth the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zeilfinat Flowise shower head
I bought 2 of these shower heads, one for each shower. the shower head has 3 settings, 1.5, 1.8 and 2.0 gpm. I prefer the second setting, 1.8 gpm. The 1.5 is very sharp. One thing I did not expect is that the setting does not stay at what you set it, it always resets itself back to the 1.5 setting, so you need to change it for each shower. The 1.8 is pretty close to the feel of my previous shower head. One other item, there are no installation instructions that comes with the product. We have the HD home improvement book so this was not a problem but we still have a slight leak at the installation point. We installed initially with just plumbers tape - then we tried further tightening and added an o-ring and still have the leak. Any thoughts about how to solve are appreciated

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hound66 Water Saver but its shower settings not easily changed.
The best selling points are its water saving ability and very low Home Depot price. However, there are two problems with this unit, 1) it is difficult to change the default shower spray setting to another. If you manage to do it, it resets itself to its initial setting when you turn off the water. A subsequent shower requires another struggle to change it. 2) The water pressure is very low.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tkelly American Standare Flowise Model 1660.717
Consumer Reports August 09 issue tested shower heads and rated the American Standard Model 1660.717 as "Recommended" for performance and price. I ordered this model from Home Depot and am very pleased with Home Depot in delivery (it was on back order) and the performance of the product. We have been using it for 2 weeks. It has 3 different spray configurations and all three are very good. Gallons per minute were stated by American Standard @ 2 GPM and Comsumer Reports registered the same. Highly Recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by charles04 This shower head works great in the water saver mode, 1.5 gal per min. I didn't notice any difference in performance between this one and my old waterpix which put out at least 2 gal per min. I did not have any issues with rinsing or stinging, mentioned in reviews of other brands. What I liked most about this one, is you always have the option to select 2 higher flow rates. This should keep everyone in the family happy and increase the likelyhood that you will save both water and money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJK4 FloWise 3 Water Saving Showerhead
We purchased 2 of these showerheads to replace our old 2.5 gpm showerheads. We installed (easy installation!) them one week ago ~ so far we love them! Any of the 3 settings (1st setting is 1.5 gpm and the other 2 are both 2.0 gpm ~ per the American Standard website) work well depending on your preference. We don't feel as though our showers are being sacrificed. Another plus ~ it was recommended by Consumer Reports. Looking forward to saving money on our water bills!
