Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by capnbobby Great for new installation or retrofit!
I am planning to remodel my shower (removing old fiberglass stall and installing new pan, sheetrock, and tile. This HydroRail-H Shower Column will be a fantastic finish to the shower and I can use my current hand shower and head. The Chrome finished unit will match my Kohler Single handle faucet in my lavatory and my towel racks which are Chrome also.
Be sure to READ the instructions, taking care to read those sections that apply to Retrofit OR new construction.
The water supply goes to the upper escutcheon only and supplies the shower head and
The outlet for the hand-shower at the bottom.
The instructions could me a bit more explicit but if you read carefully, installation should not be a problem, even for the Do It Your-Selfer. The quality of the unit is high end and the design is simple and attractive and will be easy to keep clean.
I think the price is a little high, hence the 4 star rating

I got this hydrorail to make it easier for my kids to take their showers, without parental help. This rail has a normal shower head up high, but allows you to also have a hand held shower head that can be raised and lowered as desired. This allows users of different heights to adjust the shower head to a desirable height for optimal use. It also has a lever that allows to switch from the overhead sprayer to the handheld sprayer. The installation is a fairly straight forward installation as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolTimeTony Near instant eloquence upgrade for the shower, proving two heads
This is a conversion unit from a single high mount shower head to a dual fixed head and a hand held unit. It installs fairly easily, you remove your old shower head and arm, connect the hydrorail unit in its place, secure the lower mount to the shower wall, and connect a top shower head and a hand held shower head to the lower unit. All mounting hardware is included, no in wall plumbing modifications are necessary to use this - a big plus! You do need to supply both the top shower head and the handheld unit complete with connecting hose. The unit is adjustable so you can adjust the location of the top fixed head. There is a selector knob to control water to the top or hand held head, and you can mix the two if you like. I used my unit to convert an outdoor shower we have down at our shore house to add the hand held unit. The hand held head is great for washing the sand from your legs and feet! This unit looks great and adds instant eloquence and functionality to any shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jimpet Looks great!!!!
I recently upgraded my shower to one of these hydro rails. Installation was super easy and did not take long. Directions were clear. I added a rain shower head with it that I absolutely love. There is also a diverter to make it switch between components. Depending on how tall you are the handle is adjustable. I really love the entire look of my new shower. The shower looks like a showcase home shower with out the cost!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IronAvatar Upgrade your shower
This is a great upgrade for any shower. Installation is a breeze, and it looks fantastic. The finish is a bright chrome that is smooth and so far has been durable and easy to clean. The build quality is excellent, adjustments along the rail for the hand shower remain secure even after many adjustments, and it has not diminished the water pressure or flow from our previous single shower head.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrb Nice shower accessory!
This item turn our regular shower into a spa! The hand shower can be easily adjust for height, and while not noted in the description of this item, by using the diverter valve, you can have water flow from both the hand shower and the fixed shower head, creating a flood of water! The finish is beautiful, and maters our other brushed nickel fixture well. Installation is simple, pliers, a level, drill and screwdriver are all that's needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerg Like showering in a high end hotel
My brother put one of these in his shower when he had kids and I instantly fell in love with it. I installed one in my bathroom and now I have one in the hall bathroom as well. Now the shower head can be at the perfect level for everyone one in the family. This has the added benefit of being able to attach a hose end shower head to the bottom of the column and a regular shower head on the top. Now rinsing my two year old's hair and washing the dog are much easier.
Installation is fairly straight forward if you have done basic plumbing but even if you haven't the instructions are clear and easy ti follow. Everything you need for installation is in the box with the exception of some thread tape. Just remove the old shower head elbow and follow the instructions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldjohnsr Very useful
I am disabled and can stand for short periods of time so with the Hydrorail-s Bath/Shower Column in Brushed Nickel I can start my shower standing than switch to the lower shower head and sit in my shower chair to finish. The column is very sturdy and heavy for a tube. I had expected it to be a light piece of copper tubing covered in a nickel finish but this column actually feels like a pipe coated with the finish. I feel that it is strong enough that if I were to start to fall in the bath I could grab on and it would support me.
