AirPower: Each drop of water is enriched with air to the extent that the droplets become plumper, lighter and softer. You will notice the effects immediately on your skin: the sparkling AirPower rain shower envelops your body and creates a wonderful sense of well-being. Around three liters of air are transferred to one liter of water. Valuable water is thus used efficiently.
QuickClean: Hansgrohe has fitted its faucet aerators and shower jets with flexible silicon nozzles, dirt and limescale can be rubbed off easily so that residues disappear in an instant. Products that are limescale-free and well-maintained remain functional and last longer.

Great productThis shower is wonderful. It's worth every penny we paid for it. It looks great, is practical and offers every user an option they like. The showerheads deliver strong waterflow and the thermostatic valve is so easy to use. No more trying to mix the water for the perfect temperature. Just one turn of the knob and it comes out the right temp. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Excellent ProductWhen I searched the internet for the best shower body product out on the market I kept getting thrown to Hansgrohe. I have to admit the price kept my search going, but i kept coming back to this product and decided to go for it and I'm 100% glad I did. The quality and craftsmanship is excellent. With a little know how very easy to install yourself. I've only had it installed a week though so far but the difference from previous shower systems and another one I have in another bathroom cannot compare. I'm going to wait a while and see how this holds up and I plan to purchase another shower body for another bathroom from this company. The only downside I saw to this was that the arm that hold the shower spray does not tilt like it showed in the picture.

Quality ProductI purchased this shower system as part of a master bath remodel. I wanted something that looked elegant, modern, and had had multiple water dispensing options. This Hansgrohe Raindance shower just exudes "quality" and looks fantastic. It has got some serious weight to it as there is little (if any) plastic in it. My wife loves the waterfall head and I love the 3 position hand-wand head. It is hard to explain but I have never experienced the precision with which the water comes out of all the nozzles openings. With all previous shower heads that I have had, there always are multiple openings that get obstructed in some way so there is some water spraying outside the intended main pattern. Not with this shower. I love looking at it every time I am in the shower and the feeling of the different water spray patterns is the best I have ever experienced. It is worth every penny.

Incredible, wonderful product!We splurged on this shower pipe system. Now that it is installed and we are using it, I would gladly pay double! It looks great - so sleek and stylish. The operation is simple and smart, functional and easy to use. We got the 7" rain shower but wish we had gotten 10". I can't say enough about this great product!

What is the GPM for both the shower head and the hand shower?
The Hansgrohe 27165 GPM is 2.5 for both the Shower Head and Hand Shower.
Does the shower head tilt?
A. The Hansgrohe 27165 rain shower head does not tilt.
does the water for the shower head run through the exposed shower pipe or does it run through concealed piping in the wall?
A. The water to the shower head runs through the exposed pipe. It first comes out of the wall into the exposed mixing valve, then to the shower head.
where do you turn on the water? Do you have to order a separate valve, or is everything you need included here? Also, what material is the product made of. Thanks.
A. Hello, the Hansgrohe 27165 requires valve 1818. The water and diverter are all on the bar. This will be all that's needed for this system.
Do you have something like this without the showerhead for a tub without a full wall where the valve is going to be installed?
We sell tub sets with a hand spray, an example of one is the Moen T944.
What are the differences between this one and 27160?
The Hansgrohe 27165 has a 7" rain shower head and does not include the valve. The Hansgrohe 27160 has a 10" rainshower head and includes the valve.
Does this include a slide bar?
The hand shower has an adjustable slide that will move up and down on the bar, as shown in the picture. You can remove the hand shower as well.
Where can i get the required valve?
The Hansgrohe 16181 thermostatic valve is the required valve for this shower system and will be offered upon checkout.
How many inches does the rain shower extend from the wall?
The Hansgrohe 27165 shower arm is 18". The farthest edge of the shower head from the wall will be approximately 21".
Can you add a 7" tub spout to the Hansgrohe shower system 27165
The Hansgrohe 27165 can be used with a diverting tub spout.
Where do you turn on the water? Do you have to order a separate valve, or is everything you need included here? Also, what material is the product made of?
Hansgrohe 27165 has an exposed thermostatic valve however the 16181 basic set is needed for installation. The water controls and diverter are located on the ends of the cylinder horizontal bar. The material is mostly brass with some plastic parts on hand shower and holder.
Where is it made?
Hansgrohe has excellent craftsmanship, all items parts are made in Germany.
Why is the 27160 model more expensive than the 27165 (after adding in the 1181 device)?
The 27160 not only has a larger shower head, it is also WaterSense certified, the hand shower has 4 settings and it includes the rough in valve required to install. The 27165 has a smaller shower head, it is not WaterSense certified, the hand shower has 1 setting and does not come with the required rough in valve.
Can the vertical pipe be shortened to accommodate a lower ceiling?
The vertical pipe on the Hansgrohe 27165 is a solid piece and can not be shortened.
How tall is the slide bar?
The slide bar is 40.5" from end to end.
