We renovated our guest bath and took a lot of time to refinish our claw foot tub so when we ordered this and got it quickly we were very happy to finally have the last piece of the puzzle. When we opened the box the fixture seemed heavy duty and very nice. Installation was a bit of a challenge because there was nothing as far as instructions on connecting the supply line. Luckily I've done this before so after locating the proper connections at a hardware store, we were able to get it in. We had a leak that plumbers tape fixed so no biggie. The problem came the second time we turned on the shower. Please note, the shower part came pre-assembled. A few seconds after turning on the water, it sprayed EVERYWHERE out of the back of the shower head. As with the other connection I put on a layer of plumbers tape thinking that would fix it. When I put the head back on, the thread stripped. I'm talking not even fully hand tightened and it stripped. That's when I realized it was not brass as the rest of the fixture was. The head is some kind of PLASTIC! I wanted to write this review before calling the manufacturer to warn as many people as soon as possible not to buy this unless you want to be deceived. It looks great, but with the stripped head, it is mostly useless and we now have to wait for a replacement part. Where has pride in manufacturing gone?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by redog It's just alright
The piece is heavy and solid except for the handset. The handset feels cheap and the line is stiff. The handset barely lays in the cradle because it is so light and the stiff line's lack of flexibility. The handset leaks water long after the source is closed. It retains water in the head which will miss the tub. The mounting hardware is tough to line up and be careful with how much you leave exposed. The brass fittings are soft and susceptible to damage.
Tip! use double the Teflon tape you would normally use.
