Questions & Answers


My wall mount valve trim kit has a diverter, can it still be used with this unit, which comes wit...

Asked by Ellie May 21, 2020

Maybe, depending on what your diverter is doing exactly and where it is located. The diverter is built into this unit as the water comes directly from the shower arm. The lower portion of this kit, where the diverter is located, is simply attached to the wall with supplied self-stick tape.

Is the shower system tested before being packaged? Because I just opened my package and the shower pipe has water on it.

Asked by Gg August 18, 2019

I’m not sure but I would think if it’s wet that it was tested

What is the model # or part # for the 22 1/4" shorter vertical pipe in chrome for the spray hand ...

Asked by Claudia May 12, 2019

The best way to get a short pipe for the kauai III rain shower would be to order it directly from our website. Here is the link to the short pipe on our website.

Does the shower head move? Or, only straight down.

Asked by Larry March 26, 2019

There is some rotation of the head on the ball socket connection but since it is more of a 'rain' shower it doesn't really spray out very far. it is not intended to be a standard spray shower.

How does this turn on? Do I have to order a special shower knob to turn the water on? Or does this come with everything?

Asked by Thomas March 18, 2019

I love this shower head. It only has a knob that switches between the hand held and rain spout. You still need to turn on and control water temp at separate lower valve above the bathtub faucet.

How far is the slide bar from the shower wall?

Asked by ultraliter February 6, 2019

My slide bar is 1 7/8" from the shower wall after installation.

Are any parts plastic (ABS)? If so which ones?

Asked by JC January 31, 2019

Both showerheads are plastic, but well finished. The tubes seem to be metal, not as heavy as copper though.

can I make the shower head have more pressure

Asked by jim January 27, 2019

If you mean more water flowing from the showerhead, yes. There is a flow regulator you can remove from the upper connection to increase water flow.

What can I do if the tube connecting to the shower head and nipple is too high?

Asked by lolodia November 6, 2018

Hello, Yes you can replace the shower arm. They sit on a standard half inch thread so any preferred shower arm can be used with this shower.

What’s the length from The shower attachment to the lower attachment

Asked by Liz October 25, 2018

A little over 26". Look in the info box in the product description and install & specs are shown. This will give you all dimensions.

The wife loves her new shower. Relatively easy to put in if you have basic plumbing knowledge. I did have to buy a shorter 1 1/2" connector for the install so it would mount flush. Took my time on installation, about 2 hours. It looks nice in the shower, finished nicely and hefty pieces. It is well balanced so the weight doesn't pull too much on the shower head, and it has a good water flow from both the shower and the handheld. If you want a rain shower, this is a good option.

My contractor neglected to put the soap dish on and it is nowhere to be found. Is it possible to order another one? I am happy with the look of this and believe it will be very functional, but one of the reasons I bought it was because of the attached soap dish so please advise.

I don't know what product the other reviews got but mine doesn't even deserve a single star. I foolishly relied on the ratings before I purchased on line. You are lucky if the shower arm to to T doesn't leak and is clocked vertically. The joint does not use NPT, so you are at the mercy of random clocking to not have the joint leak. THere is a O-ring used to hope it seals but above where the O-Ring seats is a set screw for rotational stabilization that gives you another leak path. Calling the customer support line, you are directed to Brian, the dedicated support person for this problem product. He admits the issues but directs you to get a helper to apply more force to rotate the shower arm even though mine was bottoming out, 270 degrees from vertical and still leaking. The wall thickness of the pipe is closer to sheet metal and buckled before budging another 5 degrees. Manufacturers answer is to keep sending you different ones until you get one by random draw that does not leak and is correctly clocked. I guess they feel my time is not worth anything. Additionally, don't expect to be able to use the hand shower by itself. The divert vale only turns the hand held on and off while flow will still be going to the top rainfall. Thank you Home Depot for your quick refund of my purchase, you might want to call Brian and discuss this and then stop selling the poorly designed product

Excellent Value
Looks exactly as advertised and feels solid and high-end. Yes, the heads themselves are plastic but look beautiful. There is solid brass throughout all the interior plumbing where it matters. I did a lot of research before purchasing in February 2016 and almost passed the Kauai up due to poor reviews regarding water pressure, diverter operation and installation issues. The Kauai III has resolved all of those problems! Our plumber had no trouble installing and there is great water pressure from both heads. Diversion is smooth and complete with no dripping from either head that is not in use. When turned off, the water quickly flows out of rain shower with none of the residual dripping some reviewers complained about in earlier versions. We have been using this product daily for 6 months now with no problems whatsoever. We had this shipped to Home Depot store for the free shipping and ease of return if we hadn't been satisfied. Delivery was quick with all parts in box and well-packed. Instructions were clear. Very satisfied - an all-around great value for the price.

Very high quality, heavy and beautiful; better than others that are 3 times the price; easy, clear DIY install.

I shopped a lot, both on line and in stores, and read lots of reviews and comparisons. This Kauai III from Pulse is preferable to many units I saw in top-end stores for $450 to $480. Very high quality: the fittings are all heavy and well-machined brass, with well-designed seals and assembly points. The heavy, glossy chrome plating is very satisfying. The valve operation is smooth and easy, nice and firm. The soap dish is also metal and well-plated. The only chrome-plated plastic is on the rain head and the hand-held shower heads themselves; the entire piping is all nice heavy metal. You want the Kauai III, not the Kauai II; the III version allows running both shower heads at once. Buying at Home Depot guaranteed getting the Kauai III, because Pulse drop-ships the Kauai orders, whereas the large Amazing on-line store had the two versions confused in their warehouse and could not assure which one would ship. The manufacturer, Pulse, does continuous improvement; I noticed they had revised one of the water restrictions to improve it, when the nice exploded view drawing included was a little different from the parts, and did not show the improvement in the drawing. I phoned them a couple times, before and after buying, always immediately getting helpful knowledgable friendly human beings to answer questions -- a pleasure. When I could not find one of the parts, the person immediately offered to send me parts, free! But the parts were in there after all, I'd just overlooked them. Removing the water restrictors is easy if you want to do so and are allowed to do so where you live. When both showers are running at the same time, the flow from each is reduced -- hey, it's just physics -- but still works. My wife likes a rain head, and I prefer a more focused shower, so this works for both of us. I thought that if I did not like the flow options on the hand-held shower, I could always easily replace just the hand-held, because it has a standard fitting like most (or all?) of them do, but when it arrived I was happy that it has five flow setting selections, and when I turned it on I was happy with it. Some features I noticed and liked: The hose for the hand-held is connected at the BOTTOM of the pipe, not up at the top of the shower. That means the hose reaches much farther, whether for washing the shower, washing the dog, or for reaching anywhere on your body. The hose fitting is a nice heavy well-machined brass, swivel unit, and the hose is clad with stainless outside, not just a plastic tube outside. Also, the valve which selects the shower head is at the bottom, so someone doesn't have to be tall or even grown-up to reach it! The hand-held shower head can be mounted toward the left, or the right, and can be raised or lowered by just pushing the little spring-loaded button on the clamp. The rain head is on a tube that goes up, so the bottom of the rain head is a couple inches higher than the hole in the wall, which is a good and rare feature. Also the tube holds the rain head far away from the wall. Did not find another shower with all these features. Easy to install, with good instructions. I realized the bottom of the shower assembly was quite low, as it is a long assembly. I mounted it nice and high (I'm over six feet and HATE low showers, this is great) but still the bottom of it is low, so: think ahead about where your valve is going to be, or where it IS. I wanted my valve to be high enough to reach comfortably, normal height, so mounted my valve about eight inches to the right so that it would not be too close to the hand-held hose swivel fitting. I put the valve toward the shower door opening, so it would be easy to reach in and turn on the water before getting in, to let it warm up; that worked out great (see pic). The Home Depot order went smoothly; ordered on line, simple, and they sent confirming email, very clear, and they sent me a message about shipment status, so I knew right when it was coming in. It came Very Well Packaged by factory, and with a preprinted return label in case there were any issues. The unit was available at a few different places, but best price was at Home Depot, and that was for the latest version, which is shipped directly from the factory, never shipped and re-shipped through the Home Depot warehouses or stores. So: don't be fooled by other models costing 3 or four times as much (they too have plastic on the shower heads); this unit is a high-quality shower with a luxurious spa feel and well-designed features, from a company with supportive people you can talk to on the phone.

Wonderful. Looks great, has good pressure, and feels luxurious. My husband had a really easy time installing it.

I am so pleasantly pleased with this shower system. It turned out to be so much more than I hoped. My husband loves the rain shower head, with excellent water pressure in a home that has restricted water pressure. Why I love it is because I am 5 ft tall and get drowned in the tall rain shower. Using only the handheld but left on the holder I can get a full shower without getting my hair wet and still have both hands available. when I want to use it off the holder I can do so easily. it is so easy to put the handheld on and off the holder.yYes the shower allows you to use the shower heads at the same time or separately all with good pressure. We did have this installed by a plumber with no issues and was done in about an hour. He did remove the water restrictions. I would definately recommend this system!
