Is this product all made in the U.S.? If you buy these parts separate it’s a lot more expensive

Asked by Chris September 27, 2019

Hi Chris, this is Keisha with the Kohler Co. I would be more than happy to answer your question. Kohler Co is a global company, and manages manufacturing facilities in countries all over the world. Almost all of our KOHLER products have multiple parts; each part has the ability to come from a different facility or vendor from around the world. In order to obtain product that is made in the USA only, you would have to work with a local distributor and they would go through their inventory to locate this for you. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

Asked by gerryh August 5, 2018

Hello Gerryh, my name is Tiffany with Kohler Co. I apologize for the issue you are having with your Flipside handshower I am to answer any questions you may have. There is a screw between the hose and the handshower that could be blocked causing the low flow. Soaking both the handshower and this screen in a 50/50 white vinegar with warm water should help unblocked them. If you need further assistance, please contact our Customer Care Team directly at 1-800-456-4537. We are available from 8am-5pm CT, Monday-Friday. Thank you for choosing Kohler.

do i have to buy arm and lever also. which lever will fit.

Asked by san February 14, 2018

Not sure what you mean by lever as there is not one nor is one needed. You just remove your old shower head and screw the end of the hose on where the old head was. The only other thing you will need is a roll of thread tape which is less than $2.00 also at Home Depot. Looking at the above picture I assume you think there is a lever at the end of the shower head. What you see is the head being turned as each of the four positions have different spray patterns.

Asked by myrna October 3, 2017

Shower cradle broke
No complaints about the actual shower, however after only 10 months of use, one side of the shower cradle broke off! Apparently, it's made of a cheap plastic material. I called the company and they were very good to send me out a replacement cradle without any charge or hassle. However, the replacement does not match the actual finish on the rest of the shower - even though the package states it should be the same. Also, the look of it is completely different than the original. I pretty much hate it. The replacement piece is very cheap looking and feels that way too.

The sprays are nice, but design is hard to clean and does not wear well
This handshower was particularly recommended to me by a Kohler representative when I was installing a Hydrorail system. I enjoyed the various spray functions, but the design of the hand shower makes it extremely difficult to clean, particularly the sprays that work from the side of the showerhead. I live in an area with hard water and despite regular cleanings (by various methods), in less than 2 years, there are mineral deposits that simply won't come off, which is not a pleasant showering experience. Further, the frame of the handshower (within which the showerhead rotates) appears to be made of plastic, and the finish started flaking off. Not what I would expect from Kohler. I replaced this with the Shift handshower, which appears to be better-made and will be easier to maintain.

Love this Shower Head
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've owned a Flipside shower head for several years now and it by far it's my favorite shower head. It does everything I want and out of a shower head and more. The standard spray pattern does 90% of the work for me but with a quick flip I go to my next favorite setting where the water comes out in a soft but yet powerful wide pattern. It's a unique setting I've only experienced on a Flipside shower head and it feels amazing. I also find this setting very useful when I'm cleaning the shower too.

Love the features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love using my flipside. Gives me adequate water pressure and works nicely on the pressure to get the soap out of my daughters hair.

This shower head is my absolute favorite. I have been using this model for 10 years now and this is the third one I've purchased. I love that I can also use it to clean the tub and shower area with it as well. It has held up beautifully after years of use. I can't recommend it enough. Great product!

When first unpacking the hose is very stiff and when you put the hand held into the holder it tends to twist. It took about a week for the hose to loosen up and now no issues. Plenty of water pressure good coverage. Very satisfied with the unit.

This is my second flipside, same model. After seven years my shower leaked in the wrong places and the hanger bracket broke. I love the design and versatility of this model {other than the bracket} . That is the reason I bought the same shower again, but I am hoping for better results. Thanks,
