Will the diverter allow for simultaneous use of the handheld AND the showerhead?

Will the diverter allow for simultaneous use of the handheld AND the showerhead?

Hi, this is Laura with Kohler Co. I am happy to assist you with your question. No; this diverter allows for one item to be in use at a time. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

Can I still use a tub spout and switch between these 2? Which parts do I need.

Asked by: ShoppingBuddy
Hi, this is Laura with Kohler Co. I am happy to assist you with your question. A bath spout is not compatible with the HydroRail as the diverter on the column is a two way diverter; it switches between the handshower and showerhead. A three-way diverter would be needed to include a bath spout. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

Can the depth of the hydrorail, which is currently listed at 17.938 inches be extended with an extension accessory?

I have a bench in my shower and the 17.938 depth may not be enough in order to use a rain shower head. If the depth is set then I may have to opt for a standard adjustable shower head that can be angled
Asked by: Meer
Meer, my name is Jessica with Kohler Customer Service. I am happy to assist with your inquiry. I do apologize, there is not an extension to add to K-45209 for the shower head to be extended. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

HydroRail Bath/Shower Column in Oil Rubbed Bronze is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole new shower experance Wasn't too sure if i was going to like this style of shower but once you try it your hooked. Nice looking design very functional and very easy to install. This is a bit pricy by the time you add in the hand shower and the large rain head but vs. the cost of tearing out the wall and replumb for this style of shower it’s much less evasive. You can do this with a little time, few tools, minimal effort and you have just updated your shower to the next level. Please note in my video I did not use the provided mounting hardware, I’m in the process of renovating a few rooms and I didn't want to mount this in tile until I tried it first. Last thing I want was to drill into my new tile if I didn't like this and have to patch new tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made sure there were studs behind the mounting points... I made sure there were studs behind the mounting points because I didn’t want to use the plastic anchors. This thing is mounted to studs in my shower . I didn’t want someone to pull on it or slip and grab ahold of it and pull it out of the wall along with tile! If you’re doing a complete renovation I would suggest you do the same. It has its own diverter , so you can switch from the overhead to the hand held & run them both simultaneously. Looks expensive and no other rail can make the same statement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Spa Extravaganza Positively G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. Kohler Hydrorail transformed my ordinary, plan bath/shower combo into the spa excursion I'd always wished for. The column replaces the fixed shower head with an adjustable height rail which allows you to experience an overhead rain shower. The old fixed showerhead sat too low on the wall and could never be adjusted for a rain shower. A person over 5'6" would have to bend over underneath the showerhead to wash their hair. The Hydrorail adjusts to the height you choose for the perfect spa delight. Most showerheads will fit the Hydrorail, because it is a universal size. The bigger the better to feel like you are inside a waterfall. The Hydrorail offers a hookup for a handshower, too. It is literally the best of both worlds. My Hydrorail column is a beautiful vibrant polished nickel that coordinates very well with other bathroom accessories that were already in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Install appeal The shower column is supplied as just the column. You will need to add (or reuse) your existing shower head and shower wand. Installation was fairly straightforward, with the exception of the mount that goes where your existing shower pipe exits the wall. The plate is fairly small, so the pipe needs to be almost fully enclosed to enable you to mount the bracket to it. The manufacturer provides plastic toggle bolts. It took about 30 minutes to install. I like the fact that the rail brings the shower head out and away from the wall, and the wand is out of the way. The wand holder is fully adjustable and can be slid up and down the rail and locked in to position wherever you prefer. The bathroom we installed this in was already very nice, but now it has a spa like feel. It makes a statement. Look at the pictures and video for more information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool and Beautiful This is such a beautiful product I can't recommend it highly enough. It's very solid and nicely finished and it is just the right height for my wife and I (I'm 6'2" and my wife is 5'6"). I hate having to bend over when shower heads aren't tall enough, but my wife likes to be able to adjust and change the shower head direction so it can't be too high. It's easy to install, only needs a few screws drilled with a masonry bit into tile or stone. I had it up in less than 20 minutes. We bought a big square shower head with the same finish and they look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Looking addition to the shower area......BUT EXPENSIVE The HydroRail does two things quite well. First ... it adds a tremendous amount of versatility with the availability of a large rain head shower and the handheld shower wand. Second, this rail is extremely nice looking. All of this can be done in about an hour without needing to tamper with the plumbing inside the wall. However, I think the HUGE downside to this is the cost. For $450, I think a shower head and wand should be included. I think it overprice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bath/Shower Column The HydroRail Bath/Shower Column in Oil Rubbed Bronze has a very nice finish that will last along time if it is cleaned regularly. The installation instructions should be rewritten because it does not explain the correct way to install it, this is not something that the normal homeowner should try to tackle unless they have the skills. The HydroRail is wonderful when it is finished, works great, and looks beautiful on top of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to shower I am impressed with the construction quality of the Hydrorail. Everything is machined brass and very heavy duty. We have comparatively low water pressure since we live on a ranch and pump our own water. Normal shower heads just don’t put out the volume and force I would like to see. By installing the Kohler Hydrorail the wall mounted shower head is replaced with an overhead shower. With the same pressure you get a lot more pleasant experience. The install was relatively simple. It was necessary to drill holes in our porcelain tile but as long as you have a diamond bit that is not a problem. I do have a few gripes however. When I removed the existing shower pipe I discovered that the distance from the pipe elbow to the wall surface was too thin for the supplied adapter. I had to order a “shallow rough-in kit”. If the distance was too large a “deep rough-in kit” would have been necessary. I feel that since this is an expensive item all three adapters should have been included. These adapters are just machined brass and could not add a lot to the cost of the item. The only other issue is that the install requires a 3/8” allen wrench. I have several of these but many home owners would not have them. Again, including the wrench would have been a nice touch. I have not yet added the hand shower. All in all a VERY nice item and it looks great.
