Product Technologies / Benefits:

  • AirPower: The innovators at Hansgrohe have invented something ground-breaking with their release of the AirPower shower heads. A plentiful supply of air is sucked in via the spray disc of the AirPower shower, and the incoming water is infused with that air causing an effect you will notice immediately. Plumper, lighter and softer droplets of water will envelop your skin creating a wonderful sense of well-being. In addition to a better shower experience your demand for water will also be drastically reduced.
  • QuickClean: This technology instantly removes dirt and limescale  deposits from shower and faucets with the quick rub of a finger thanks to silicon water nozzles.

Hansgrohe 27160 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds My husband wanted a rain shower and I wanted a moveable shower head for when I don't want to get my hair wet. We love this! Beautiful, functions very well and made to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shower Fixture - Worth the Money! This shower fixture has it all - modern, sleek, functional, perfect temperature control and water pressure through both the rain shower head and handheld wand. We love this new shower fixture in our brand new bathroom (just upgraded from a 1950's original bathroom). It is definitely worth the money and will not disappoint. I didn't hear any complaints about the install from my contractor so I'm guessing it was a pretty easy install as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from shower recently we remodeld our guest bath room.We purchased everything we needed at faucetdirect and I'm very pleased with the service and the appliances.Grohe product seem to be a little more expensive put it's worth the money. The rain shower is just enjoyable. We have a cheaper one in another bathroom and you can tell the difference.After serching for long time faucetdirect could offer the best deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shower system, hands down! I bought this system along with all Hansgrohe Axor Uno Faucets for the sinks and tub when I renovated my bathroom. The shower has an awesome Thermostatic valve which is the best in class and a pleasure to use. Simply set it and forget it. Use the diverter to control the shower with either the big Raindance head or the hand wand. Hansgrohe is built to last and is finished impeccably. It's the only faucets I use now throughout the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality This shower system is the first hansgroehe product I have purchased and I am well satisfied with the solid metal components and ease of operating the valves. With ADA in mind I thought the push button on each handle would be an issue, but they depress with just a light touch. So no problems that I can see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product Who would have thought one could enjoy such a mundane task like taking a shower soo much. Yes, the cost is a bit intimidating. You will not be disappointed with this shower. The unit itself, the hardware, the controls, the look, and of course the performance are all top notch. Its a shame we can only give 5 stars. It deserves 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Rain shower Excellent rain shower. The 100 degree temp setting is great--it's the perfect temp. The wife loves the hand-held shower too. The price is steep but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Shower Gentle ran on head..it's big! But works nice, sleek looking, love the hand held and how you turn it on and adjust temp..really nice and worth the money!

  • Can diverter allow water flow through showerhead and hand-held at the same time?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 doesn't allow water flow to both items at the same time.
  • Do I have to purchase the Hansgrohe 04231 Double Handle Thermostatic Valve separately or does this unit come with it already?

    A. The 27160 includes the valve and would need no additional parts other then someone to install it.
  • My existing faucets are 8", stem to stem; is there an adapter that will allow the shorter 5 3/4" for this system?

    A. This only requires the hot and cold line I do not believe there is any adapter sold separately for this unit.
  • The rainshower is only 18 inches from the wall. Do you find it too close to the wall?

    A. 18" is pretty standard for these.
  • Which other products do I need to purchase with this e.g. rough-in?

    A. This model will use an exposed rough-in valve. The only thing you need to provide are the hot and cold water pipes running to the system.
  • are all the exposed as well as the valves in the wall, made of metal, ie; no plastic?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 is made entirely of metal except the hand shower and the slider. The valve body is made of all brass, no plastic.
  • Can I use this on a tub/shower set up? Would I use a tub spout with a diverter? If not this, would any of the pole systems work with a tub/shower set up?

    A. This system would not work with a diverter tub spout since it has a built in valve. I would recommend something like the 27164 that requires a separate trim and valve. so you could use it with a tub spout
  • does the water pressure have to be high or regular standard?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 would work if you have standard water pressure. The rain shower and hand shower each pump out 2.5 gallons per minute.
  • How does the Volume control/diverter looks like ?What else do i need to purchase in order to install this shower system?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 volume control is on one of the ends of the main mounting bar, the temperature is on the other and the each rotate until meeting the setting you'd prefer. Th diverter is located on the volume control and you divert by turning from front to back. This item comes ready to install.
  • Is a diverter to control if the water goes to the hand-held or the rainshower or both? Sorry to ask probably a basic question, but just starting to look into bath reno products.

    A. Yes, the diverter controls the direction of the water.
  • Where is this product manufactured?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 is made in Germany.
  • Can I get a metal hose instead?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 is only offered in a package with the Techniflex hose and cannot be substituted with another hose.
  • Can the safety stop be adjusted to a higher or lower temperature?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 could be adjusted to a hight or lower temperature.
  • Does the hand shower have touch control?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 is not touch control, the shower has a diverter.
  • Does this shower system come with ceramic valves?

    A. Yes the volume control is ceramic.
  • Does this system require a rough-in valve or is it included and are there sink faucets that are similar in style/

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 includes the rough in valve needed for this system. The raindance collection does not have a faucet collection but this would go good with any S series faucets by Hansgrohe like the Focus S or Talis S
  • The installation for this item indicates it should be 89" above finish floor, can it be installed lower, like 81".

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 can be installed lower as long as you are plumbed lower for the controls.
  • What do I need to turn water off and on? Is there a separate shower control that I need to buy?

    A. Hello, The Hansgrohe 27160 is going to come with everything you need for installation. The rough in valve is included and the controls for operation are on the horizontal bar. I hope this information helps! Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with. Thank you.
  • Am concerned if the rainshower head has strong enough flow to shampoo and rinse long hair? If not, are there other (more traditional) heads that can be used to replace it?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 has a hand shower that can be used to easily take the shampoo out of your hair if the rain shower isnt enough for you.
  • Can the Raindance 240 AIR 10" showerhead be replaced with the 27447 showerhead from the Raindance E collectionor the 27495 Raindance S shower head?

    A. Yes, showerheads are interchangeable.
  • can the techniflex hose be changed out later with another purchased metal hose?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 hose is a typical 1/2" connection. It can be switched out for any hand shower hose that has a standard 1/2" connection.
  • Can you adjust the direction of the fixed shower head or does it not move at all? I would like to aim it slightly away from the wall...

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 fixed shower head does not adjust.
  • My current shower has a single Moen faucet. Can this unit be used when I do an upgrade of the shower?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 will work for you when you do your upgrade. You would not be using any of your old moen parts.
  • What else do I need to install 27160 to my shower room?

    A. The Hansgrohe 27160 is a complete system that will only require normal tools and teflon tape to install.
  • Does the hand shower detach from the main bar, to allow for easy reach when washing the shower area?


    The Hansgrohe 27160 handshower does detach from the main bar to allow flexibility.

  • Can body sprays be added to this system?


    The Hansgrohe 27160 cannot use separate body sprays without using other controls.

  • Can I replace this fixed shower head with an adjustable shower head?


    You may replace the fixed shower head on the 27160 with an adjustable unit.

  • Is it available in Oil Rubbed Bronze?


    The Hansgrohe 27160 is not offered in oil rubbed bronze.

  • Can I get a metal hose instead?


    Yes the system can be switched out for any shower hose that has a 1/2" connection

  • I am considering this for an outside shower. Is the material suitable for that environment?


    The Hansgrohe 27160 can be installed outside but may void the warranty.

  • Does the water come out warm instantly?


    This is determined solely by your water heater. If you have an older tank-style water heater (the kind that is usually a tall cylinder in your garage or in a closet) then the water does not come out warm instantly, and the farther away from the water heater your shower is (along with other factors) will determine how long it takes to get hot water at the shower. This is why so many homes are now switching to tankless water heaters. With a small, tankless water heater, you can install it right in the bathroom for instant hot water at the shower, tub and sink.
