This Giveaway Has Completed
A month or so back, I wrote a short post about a new showerhead I scored while visiting the Delta Faucet headquarters in Indy. Since that time, and I am NOT exaggerating here, Kim and I have said “man, I LOVE that new showerhead!” at least a dozen times out loud and probably thought it silently every shower, so that’s at least twenty. (you have to pay attention around here or you’ll miss stuff)
Big News: Delta is providing TWO of these awesome showerheads to give away here this week! $87.00 value each!
See the giveaway details after the review.
The Original Review Post
I’ve done a whole lot of remodeling, and I’m pretty sure I’m about to share the absolute fastest and easiest home-improvement project I’ve ever completed. And the difference is amazing.
I was recently at the Delta Faucet headquarters in Indianapolis to learn about some great new things they’re doing in terms of design and technology. When I left, I snuck out with a showerhead. (couldn’t figure out a way to stuff a new touch operated kitchen faucet in my shirt)
Here’s the showerhead I grabbed:
This awesome showerhead is part of the Addison Series by Delta Faucet. You can buy just the showerhead for $87.00 (list) or the whole new valve and trim.
So here’s the big deal: I unscrewed the old showerhead and screwed this one on. Elapsed time: about one minute max.
I liked my old showerhead. It had good pressure and a nice spray. I was skeptical that I’d be wanting to leave the new Delta Showerhead in place, even after an impressive demonstration at Delta HQ.
That thought changed pretty quickly. As soon as the new head was installed, I thought “wow, that looks great”. It’s really a very nice looking piece of plumbing hardware.
But when I first took a shower with this new head, I was instantly converted. This showerhead uses a new Delta Faucet technology they refer to as H2O Kinetic. It’s not an easy thing to explain, but I’ll give you the highlights:
- The size of water droplets is controlled and varied
- The direction of the water spray is not static…it moves.
- Their is no induction of air into the shower spray so the water stays warmer.
I’m telling you what, it feels like twice the volume of water (even though it actually uses less than my old showerhead at only 2gpm flow) and the temperature difference is significant. I can literally compare it to a waterfall, just with less water.
I think what I’m trying to put into words is that there is a noticeable difference in that you instantly recognize the lack of voids in the water spray. I didn’t realize they were there, until they were gone.
I honestly can’t think of any project in your house that can make more of an improvement in your life with anywhere near so little effort. Again, this took less than one minute to accomplish.
If you’re doing a whole bathroom remodel you should also consider changing to a new shower valve. You’ll get better temperature control (especially when someone flushes a toilet!) and the full Delta warranty. If your walls are open anyway, it’s not a big job to change the valve.
You should give it a try.
There are two ways to do giveaways on blogs. The boring way, which is “leave a comment to enter”. That’s no fun. Then there is the fun way, which gives you a gazillion ways to enter so you can multiply your chances. (1 gazillion = 10 in regular numbers)
