Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amy B Very happy with my new shower head!
I bought this for both bathrooms my husband is very happy with the purchase! Isn't quite the impressive product that I experienced when staying at the Sheraton, but for the lesser price it is a great value.

Maybe a little pricey but definitely worth it, how many times do you need to change a shower head ? Easy to install, perfect.

Great value. Impressed with good spray pressure and volume. Nice looking product styling. Easy to install. We have been using it for two months. The shower head has some moving plastic parts that I hope will last.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BWSC Consistent, Quality Showerhead
When you purchase a Speakman showerhead, you're probably not looking for an average piece of hardware- most likely you value quality and are willing to pay for it. These classic showerheads have been around for years, and what's evident is they're meant last much longer than most of the other hardware in your bathroom. Paying up for this hardware is worth the cost- you receive a very durable, handsome showerhead that really does provide a great shower. Definitely one of the easiest renovation decisions by far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex in Florida Just pony up the $$ and buy it already
I know this isn't a cheap showerhead and there are many others on the market for far less, including some of the Speakman ones. Buy this one anyway - it will outlast you and won't clog, won't require maintenance.
I bought my first 2252 Speakman almost twenty years ago. To this day, it's still serving up absolutely heavenly showers every day without fail. You have to understand what a feat this is! The city water here is extremely hard and full of mineral deposits, sediment, and dirt (yes, dirt from when the city has a water main break and doesn't bother to flush out the lines). We were going through other brands' showerheads every 2-3 years prior to picking up the Speakman.
Despite all of this, this showerhead still hasn't clogged up on me. The finish has held up very well, with just a little tarnishing on the face of the showerhead. I see the new ones use a different material on their face, which I'm assuming was to fix this issue.
I have also bought Speakman S2005 showerheads for one of my condos. While they produce a satisfying shower, just like their brethren which you'll find in hotels, I'll take an 2252 over a S2005 any day of the week. It doesn't have the massage feature and uses a bit more water than an S2005, but it's so much better. The S2005 require a bit more care, cleaning, and de-scaling to keep going, whereas the 2252s' I have just keep chugging away without fail. I prefer the infinitely-adjustable spray pattern on this showerhead as well. It goes from almost-painful needle point jets to someone dumping a bucket over your head and all points in-between. I do recommend using a higher-end shower valve, one meant for driving multiple heads, if you can. The new ones have so many safety mechanisms in them which reduce pressure and volume of water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chillie Amazing difference - highly recommend
Heavy weight, quality product compared to the few brass colored fixtures that were available at my local store. Powerful water flow with a simple range of options. Easy to install too. I am very VERY satisfied with this purchase!! This was a splurge purchase of a product I've experienced at hotels. My only regret was waiting so long before ordering it - it is a huge upgrade in quality/performance from my old showerhead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steverino the product was easy to install and the heads deliver the perfect amount of water.
The product was easy to order on line and it arrives in a reasonable amount of time. The product has a nice external appearance (polished brass) and it looks great in the shower. It was easy to install and the heads deliver the perfect amount of water.
