-- Product Review --
The Head Master company (located in Washington, USA) has designed a luxury shower-head that offers 6 different spray selections to choose from, and has a lovely chrome finish, a swivel base and quality brass joints. The product arrived in a 4.5” square white cardboard box (recyclable) and the head was protected in a foam envelope – sadly we are not able to recycle the foam locally.
To ensure an easy installation experience the company also included a small amount of teflon tape, a very thoughtful inclusion. Once installed (and that was really very easy to install) we fully appreciated the beautiful design, and how easy it will be to clean.
As a conscious consumer, I really appreciated the fact that this item will help with our water conservation efforts through the low-flow restrictor and high-pressure rainfall style, resulting in energy efficiency through less use of hot water (2.5 GPM flow at 80 PSI). There is apparently a removable low flow restrictor inside the shower-head but I didn’t see anywhere as to how one removes it if they don’t want it – I do however want it so that isn’t an issue for me.
The self-cleaning silicone rubberized jets prevent mineral buildup. And it is so easy to switch from your choice of 6 adjustable flow rate (saturating – for rinsing thick hair, saturating and massage, massage, bubbling, saturating and bubbling, water saving).
This product weights about 7 ounces, and is 4.5” x 4.5” x 3.9” in size. Round shape, chrome with rubber water jets – the rubber jets don’t stick out too much like some shower-heads have and those ones are hard to clean without eventually knocking out the rubber jets. This one won’t do that.
The company offers a “limited lifetime warranty” and a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee. I looked both on Amazon.com and on the company website for more information on these offers but could not find anything. Nor was there any information in or on the packaging the shower-head arrived in.
The company apparently offers a little e-book with each shower-head purchase as well, but they didn’t send me that to review.
Amazon.com has a list price of $59.99 (US) but is currently (as of the writing of this article) on sale for $24.99 (US). It is not yet available to Canadians on Amazon.ca.
* I could not find any conscious consumer information on the website for the company - therefore I cannot tell you more about their social or environmental responsibility, charitable actions, volunteer policies and activities, in-house purchasing or "green" policies.
