I bought this unit and was very disappointed with the pressure. Notably, the pulsating stream was a joke, and with the three outflows open, the drip was anemic. I decided to remove the water restrictor, and everything is working great.
In order to remove the restrictor, you must remove the screen/washer from the main unit with needle nose pliers. You will notice a green plastic piece with a very small washer and 4 tentacles. That is the restrictor. I tried unsuccessfully to pull out the peice with pliers, but it was too tight. I decided to drill a small hole in the center of the plastic restrictor and then I inserted a screw and used the pliers to pull out the unit. It's in there pretty snugly, but will come out. Can't recommend doing this enough. The shower head just doesn't cut it at 2.5 gallons/minute. Now I can't get my girlfriend to leave the shower...
I absolutely love this shower head. Yes, it is a bit pricey but they way it works more than makes up for the price. We recently remodeled our bathroom and our last purchase was a shower head. I looked at several models and finally decided on this one. The H2Okinetic is amazing but be careful because the spray fans out a lot more than what I was expecting so make sure the shower curtain is closed. It has multiple settings so you can use the shower head components separately or together and if you use the hand shower you can still take advantage of the H2Okinetic feature.
I ordered this because I wanted a modern handheld shower fixture, and because it was the one used in HGTV's 2013 dream home master bath. I'm not disappointed with the showerhead. It's heavy and nicely made. But I will say that we only use the jets on the center hand held portion because when all the jets are on this thing sprays everywhere. Over all, a good product.
