Remember that tropical waterfall in the movie “Romancing the Stone”? If not, then go watch that scene right now.
Better yet, just go out and get this shower head. That waterfall scene is the best comparison I can think of for the absolute guilty pleasure of showering under this rain machine. I say guilty because during my first time using it all I could think about was that I didn’t deserve anything so wonderful. It was so good, that instead of showering longer than usual I felt obligated to stop and preserve the feeling for another time. It’s like saving the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup from your Halloween loot for later because it’s the best candy on earth.
If you have read my blog you would know that we have been completely remodeling our bathroom. Well at long last the project is complete and the results are just amazing. If you live in New Jersey like us, you can get the same treatment from GMR World. Just tell Mario that I sent you! It is hard to believe that this is the same bathroom or even that they perform the same function. What a transformation and well worth the wait. For me though, the crowning jewel of the project is the Jaclo s213 shower head.
I admit I had some concerns about using this for our new shower, since we would not be able to mount it from the ceiling. I was worried that it would not be able to come out far enough and I’d have to shower standing on the drain. This is not the case at all. It is true that you really can’t get it all the way to the center of the tub. As it turns out, where it sits is a pro not a con. I love the ability to step away to put in shampoo, lather up, or in some cases jump away from really hot water. Lots of “dry room” in there now. You don’t end up wasting water spraying the entire back wall of the shower like with a standard head.
The only other worry for me was the potential for clogging of the many rainfall holes. This is easily taken care of though, with some occasional maintenance.
If you are planning a remodel of your bathroom, then you’d be nuts not to add this to your plans. Going all out, we also included a handheld like the Moen 3669EP.
This can be used at the same time or in lieu of the overhead. Why you’d ever want to turn off the spa-like rainfall is beyond me though. Added bonus: it doubles as a mirror when you look up.
If the rest of your bathroom is in good shape, then swapping out your existing shower head for the Jaclo is a great move too. I’m telling you it’s a game changer. If you do no other home improvement this year, do this.
Get one today and your only worry will be a higher water bill from all the additional showers!
