Well...look who decided to show her ugly fucking face, Twofer Tuesday that dirty filthy temptress. She is soo filthy that I HAD to jump in on the deal to get an extra shower head for her. First Twofer in weeks, well done Meh, we'll done.
@hippiechik You may also not realize that Gere posed for Robert Mapplethorpe, and not just for portraits. There are images that include a metal plate with holes bored in it, a famous actor's scrotum/testicles, and rawhide laces holding it all together. (And those were the tame shots.).
Guys, I got my two shower heads and both of them work great! Just follow these guidelines: 1.- HAND tighten both ends of the hose. 2.- there is a small rubber gasket included in the box, BOTH ends of the hose should have a gasket and one end is specifically designed for the shower head... I did not use teflon tape, and no leaks whatsoever... happy with the purchase
Got mine today, just installed it. First impressions, it feels really cheap. It's nickel colored cheap feeling plastic. Not just the head, even the hose, bracket, and connecting pieces feel that way. That said, I installed it, making sure the gaskets were in place (they had fallen out of place and were loose in the packaging) and wrapping the threads in teflon tape, and was glad to see that it works fine without leaks. One thing though, how do you change the spray pattern? The ribbed ring going around the outside doesn't seem to turn easily, and the thumb tab is fixed in place.
I'm in agreement with the previous reviews -- this shower head is amazingly cheap and probably not even worth it at the price as sold by Meh. And it's a good thing it was a two-pack, since the first one had a bad hose and leaked from just below the joint. I trouble-shot that for 30 minutes before I realized it. It also leaked at the connector from the pipe. Fortunately, my current connector works fine, so I put that back on as it was compatible. I had to use the hose from the second package, so this was like getting one shower head, with some spare parts for $14.
I don't think I'll impulse buy things like this again. Unless it's a known quantity, the level of disappointment and frustration is just way too high in addition to throwing away the (small amount of) money.
Yes, I'm a little bitter. Almost an hour to install a shower head and forced to Frankenstein it just to get it work properly. I sure hope the spray is satisfying once I'm in there... the actual performance of the unit still needs to be trialed.
I just tried to install the first one and man what a cheap piece of junk. I glad it was two for Tuesday, because you obviously need 2 to increase your odds of getting a working product. The spray seemed OK aside from the fact that it sprayed from both ends of the hose as well. Cheap plastic connectors, cheap hose, just all around cheap. I guess I am a victim of my own favorite saying: You get what you pay for. Please don't offer these again.
@jrelson just an update . Installed the second shower head and the same deal. This one is usable until I can get to the store to buy a working shower head. I tried to pile some teflon tape around the backend of the connectors to maybe create a better seal but this didn't work either. Again see my favorite saying above.
OK ,Im liking this item seems like a great deal one for me one for a friend after checking mine it looks like it needs replacement hope the proper hardware comes with this lets get real 7 bucks a steal period no ifs and or buts ..ty once again MEH my friend you ROCK
@texquill Disappointing... did it leak at the connection or the showhead/hose itself? If the former, try re-seating the threading with some teflon tape. That usually does the trick (and make sure the gasket is present and properly seated). If the latter, I hope the warranty and/or meh will take care of that as a defective item,
@ACraigL Yes, one of the leaks was at the connection between the adapter unit and the shower line. I did re-install the teflon tape and it continued to leak. When I snugged the connection further down (by hand, and, at age 70, I'm not a powerlifter), the plastic threads snapped.
Just got around to installing my shower head. I have to say I'm really happy with it. Sure the shower head is plastic with a chrome finish but it gives me amazing water pressure! It's so much better than the Waterpik showerhead I bought for $30 a few years ago.
