Relexa Ultra Multi-Function Hand Shower Package with SpeedClean Technology - Includes Slide Bar, Hose and Bracket
So much plastic and Grohe support mediocre
The shower head and interior components of the head seem to be primarily plastic. During installation, while my contractor was screwing the head to the hose, a plastic piece inside the head snapped. It wasn't like he applied a lot of pressure.
In replacing the broken shower head, my experience with Grohe left a lot to be desired. When you pay this much for an item you expect it to work. You certainly don't expect to be told the item is being replaced "as a courtesy."
The hose feels substantial and allows easy cleaning of my 44x52 shower. We have this model installed as a secondary shower head mounted on a side wall and it projects out into the shower area more than I would like.
We have the Rainshower Rustic (27140) installed as the sole shower head in another bathroom and have had no issues with that model.

Just got and used for the first time and my first impression was that it was just ok. Slide works fine and locks good and can tilt and lock good. The pressure output is just ok and nothing special. I used all the different spay patterns and will probably never use them again.. I got this mostly for my girl friend who didn't always want to get her hair wet and to be able to shave legs near shower seat. The only problem with this is that there is no place to put shower head unless you lay it on floor because you cant reach the head when you sit. Grohe makes a secondary holder that takes the place of the 28 629 elbow and works great to hold the shower head by seat. faucet direct does not sell this and in the the Grohe site.

Problematic slide bar
This product is attractive, but neither my builder nor I can figure out how to tighten the slide bar so that it does not move between the mounting brackets. Every time I attempt to adjust the height of the shower head, the bar moves as well. Grohe technical support was not helpful in resolving this problem.

Got this for my son's bathtub shower head and it works fine. The only downside is you can't change the tilt angle.

I hesitated to spend so much on a shower head as it was maybe ten times the price of the ones i usually buy but i was tired of the poor water pressure and frequent need for replacement. this shower is worth every penny. the finish is very nice i got the stainless, it makes the most of our low water pressure, feels very durable but time will tell. it was very easy to install.

Just what we wanted
I am 5' tall so the existing shower pretty much hit me in the head. This one is perfect for me and my husband to use...high for him low for me. Also great for rinsing the shower when cleaning by using as a hand tool.

This shower exceeded our expectations. Great water flow and pressure, massage choices, etc. Would definitely recommend!
