Answer: 
Yes, you can buy the hose, hanger, and shower head as a set. Or, you can buy them separately. The hose has a metal spring inside a plastic hose, so it is hard to tell if it is brushed nickel or not. Note that the hose is a bit stiff when new.

Does this shower arm allow the water to spray straight downward?

I need a shower head that will spray straight down, not outward at an angle. I see from the description that the shower arm angle is not adjustable. Since this head flips four ways, if the angle is not already straight down can that be achieved by flipping the head to spray straight down will that cause it to spray out the side?

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by one great showerhead Another high quality product by Kohler. Instructions weren't all that the specific in my opinion, but I figured it out. Once I determined what the instructions were trying to explain the installation proceeded easily enough with no leaks. Looks great in my shower. Sure glad I decided on the brushed nickel model versus the plastic one. Expect it to last a very long time. Enjoy the flip feature for the 4 different spray patterns. Unique design. Hats off to Kohler R & D. Highly recommend this handheld showerhead. June 11, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Quality & The Best Customer Support We have been using our Flipside hand shower for a year and a half now. I have loved using it every time, such a great product, easy to use and it's been wonderful. Today the cradle piece that screws onto the pipe coming out of the wall developed a bad leak out of nowhere. It was spraying water all over our walls and ceiling. I immediately notified Kohler's Customer Service department via telephone, the lady I spoke with was very kind and she agreed to send out a replacement piece immediately. No questions asked, no problems. That was great customer service, I wish all companies were like that! Also the price at Home Depot was very competitive. Thank you Kohler and thank you Home Depot! June 8, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great shower head, but... We love the flip feature of this shower head, but the installation was not as simple as some of the others we have had. There are no instructions, and at first we had the hose on with the ends reversed. Also needed to fool with it awhile to get it to not leak. Mostly we were perplexed why this website offers this item for just a few dollars more than the exact same item that is sold without a hose!?!? Initially our rep at the local home depot ordered one for us and it came with the showerhead only (exactly the same, we compared the;m). The hose is an additional $100.00! July 1, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What you expect from Kohler This shower head is typical of what I expect from Kohler and I understand why all fine hotels use their products. I like the four different sprays it has too. One feels just like rainfall and there is a powerful spray for rinsing out your hair. The handheld unit is a bit heavy and takes a little getting used to. Definitely not like those cheap plastic ones but may be heavier than some people like. I wanted something that would last and this one fits the bill for me. February 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super easy to install This is a well made shower head that looks great. I just need to go back in and remove the flow restrictors to improve water pressure. Also, the instructions are very basic and should be better. There is a small device in the hose that is spring loaded that looks like it should restrict water flow to only one direction but the directions don't even mention it. February 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice showerhead. A bit pricey. This is a very nice showerhead. It works better with higher water pressures. The kit from Home Depot includes the hose and mounting bracket. Very easy to install. It is a little top heavy, so it tends to lean down over time. Make sure you get the joint as tight as possible to reduce this occurrence. It is a bit on the high price side, but we'll see if it is worth it. So far, we like it a lot. September 6, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love it! Our old handheld shower had deteriorated badly, and even cleaning it up didn't help any more. This shower head has brought the enjoyment back in spades. As far as I can tell, Home Depot is the only place to buy this with the hose and holder, and that makes this a better buy. The hose, however, is a bit stiff when new, but may get more flexible with use. January 29, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by This product is much larger than it looks... I returned it because not only is it much larger and bulkier than it looks here, but it has no water pressure on any of its settings. It just feels like you are standing out in the rain. I need to rinse the shampoo out of my hair and this just would never do that. We replaced it with different brand and the pressure is back and I am very happy with it. December 8, 2011
