Does the ceiling have to be tiled to install this Overhead WaterTile? I am concerned about water leaks from the ceiling given this is mounted in flush with the ceiling.
Asked by: Mike
I have had this for over a year, there is no splash from my 9 ft ceiling back to the ceiling at all. It's a straight downward stream / jet. And each of the 4 are adjustable.

this unit was installed in 2008, and water only comes out of 3 of the four nozzle membranes. There is slight mineral buildup on the three working membranes, the fourth looks clean, as if it never had water coming out of it. How do I get the non-working membrane to work ?

I've had this unit in place for about a year, and it worked well until recently when the individual nozzles began to clog, presumably because of the hard water. How can I clean the nozzles? Are the four tiles removable without opening the ceiling?
Asked by: guapoguy
Hello Guapoguy, my name is Tiffany with Kohler Co. I am happy to answer the question about the Watertile. The faceplate and nozzles can be removed by screwing the small set screws inward. These pieces can be cleaned with a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water. If you need further assistance, please call us directly at 1-800-456-4537 from 8am-5pm CT, Monday-Friday. We are here to help. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

WaterTile Rain 1-spray Single Function 9.875 in. Overhead Showerhead in Brushed Nickel is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ummm - Poke it with a stick? Yep this is a FLUSH mounted shower head, meaning that this gets installed in the CEILING! Unless you're doing a new bathroom remodel and can plan to have a low slung ceiling in the shower stall area then this may not be the shower head for you. I am planning a complete bathroom remodel and, regardless of that fact, I do not want low ceilings in the extra large walk in shower stall that I'm planning on having built. Mind you I'm 5'6 on a good day so what am I supposed to do if it's mounted to the ceiling - poke it with a stick? I suppose you can build a 45 degree angled soffit of sorts and install it in that to have a more built in look but it just seems like lots of work. OK that aside, Kohler does make quality products and this is no exception. Each of the 4 panels hinge and move independently to direct water where you want it and that is a great option but have you looked at the price??? YIKES!! There are lots of other similar options that are more easily installed, aren't flush mounted and will give you that rain shower spa like feel. Shop it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Shower Head This shower head is a work of art. The head is made of brass and chrome plated brass so its very heavy but the workmanship is truly fantastic. Every part is cast and machined to perfection. The install is very time consuming since there are so many pieces to cut, align and solder. The directions are very detailed and show every step. It just takes time to get everything just right so it all fits. The shower head does come with a very heavy stamped aluminum soldering jig that makes this all possible. I used all copper for the supply, since it gives more flexibility in adjusting everything. Once everything is assembled on the bench your ready to install it into the ceiling and connect the water supply and assemble everything for the last time. Now that everything is in place and tested it's time to take a shower. All the work is well worth it. This makes taking a shower so nice. The water can be moved to whatever suits you. It's not a powerful stream but more like a warm waterfall. Very relaxing and covers you in warm water all over, not just one area. No more cold spots with just one spot of warm water. This is truly luxury. The shower heads all have silicone spray tips so hard water won't clog. Just a rub with a soft towel and the shower head is working like new.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shower head but difficult install This took quite a while to finally get and when I did get it, the parts looked like they were used. There were a few scratches on the shower heads and the panels and they were all dirty and covered with fingerprints and watermarks. I would also recommend having a professional plumber do the installation for this unless you are very good at this type of install. The instructions were very easy to understand but it involves a lot of stuff that I preferred to have a pro handle. Once the shower head was installed it is a great product and works great with really nice water pressure, but I don't know for sure whether I would recommend this at the high price. I do really like the rain style and how great this feels in the shower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Are you kidding, Kohler?! This is a quality product from Kohler, but I don't think I would refer to it as a typical shower head. There is nothing standard about this device. It is designed to be custom flush mounted to the ceiling, and the measurements have to be precise to make this work. It is NOT designed to be mounted on a standard shower arm of any type. Note the pics from the manual. The manual is very detailed, and it's a good thing; there's no "winging it" with this installation! The four indiviually pivoting heads operate at the same water pressure and volume. Although you can pivot them separately, they all have the same "rain shower" type spray. One problem with this mounting design is the ceiling heght of the shower. Depending on the height of the person showering, the heads can only be adjusted if one can reach the ceiling. I would say that any ceiling height of more than 7 feet would make adjusting the pivoting heads difficult. If this head had a shroud that housed the pressure balancing loop, and a standard 1/2" NPT female fitting, then it could be mounted to any standard shower arm, including a drop arm from the ceiling. Also, installlation would be incredibly simple. But that's not the look Kohler was going for, despite its functionablility, It should be noted that this shower head could only be installed in new construction or a shower renovation project. Access to the ceiling, as well as the shower output from the faucet, is necessary to mount and feed the device. The rain shower spray feels(and functions) great, and it should for what the product and the installation will cost you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Kohler Rain Panel The rain panel is a luxurious upgrade to a modern, spa-like bathroom. We are renovating our home room by room, and have not yet installed the rain panel in our master bathroom. It looks like we will definitely need to hire a pro to install it, as it involves rerouting the water piping up from the current shower wall to the ceiling. So it's going to be a bit of a project between the plumbing and wall repair. However, it looks very high-end, and I have not doubt that the flow and function will be superb, as I've come to expect from Kohler products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice pleasant elegant looking shower head with a natural smooth flow of water There is some installation required of the four shower heads to the main body of the shower head, which is quite easily done. The plumbing from the water valve to the shower head is a cinch for anyone with plumbing skills, should you be changing a shower head from wall mount to ceiling mount for this application, The finish is nice and the water distribution from the shower head is smooth and relaxing. It adds a very nice new feel to the shower.
