Customer Questions & Answers

Does this come with a hose, and a holder?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, you need to purchase the Kohler hose separately.

what is the difference between the K-17492 and the K-17492, and what does the term "Raincan" mean

Asked by: Anonymous
I think it means that one of the sides feels like a rain shower head. We prefer it to the 10 inch rain shower head we have because it has more pressure when the water isn't spread out so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not great This showerhead has 4 spray patterns which is nice, but only one has enough pressure to get hair wet enough to wash or rinse in a reasonable amount of time. The other 3 are so light they barely get your body wet. One "pulses," but without enough pressure to do any good. My water pressure with other showerheads has been very good, but not with this one. If you're looking for a very gentle spray, this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We're in heaven! After trying out many different shower heads, we've finally found the ultimate one in the Flipside. We have thoroughly enjoyed every minute in the shower! The water pressure in our upstairs shower has never been that great. But, with the Flipside's design, taking a shower is now something we really look forward to! Changing the settings by just flipping it, is so easy and provides luxury we have not had before. I've already recommended this product to all my friends and family and I'm considering purchasing two more for our other bathrooms!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It ALLOWS 2.5 gal/min, and it's plastic. Yes, this allows (ALLOWS) 2.5 gallons per minute of water flow. That said, if you don't have that kind of pressure supply to begin with, this won't (can't) increase it. But I like the design, the simple 4 flow choices, and the simplicity. I dislike the way a small amount of water gets held in previous flows. So, if mid-shower you change your choice of flow, the initial blast may be chilled. I dislike that its exterior clearly feels like ABS plastic. I will check again, but I thought a rep wrote in and clarified that it was metal. Perhaps the interior is, and the unit has weight to it, but the exterior is clearly ABS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average product; expensive when compared to other products Product was 'ok;' pretty much impossible to remove the restrictor valve, if you purchase it with that intent (and really expensive it you try to do so and mess it up...not worth the risk). Marginal improvement in spray strength. It's OK, but I my primary intent was to get a stronger spray...and this was a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, horrible description by Home Depot It only comes with the shower head. I had to run to another store to find the hoses and clamps. The product is great. Nice water pressure and looks fancy. Home Depot should have made this more clear on there website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent but... This is a good shower head. It looks sleek and modern and feels solid. The only problem I have is the price. I didn't read the other reviews before I bought this. I didn't realize it was ONLY a shower head. I when online to look at hoses and brackets and couldn't believe how expensive they were. You can expect to spend well over $200 when it's all said and done. I ended up using old hoses and brackets. I rated the value poor b/c earlier this year I bought a silver Flipside shower head that was round at the edges and it came with a hose and bracket and cost me only $59.
