Flipside 2.5 GPM Multi-Function Shower Head with Flipstream Technology
4 in 1 flipside design
While the installation was relatively easy, it's important to understand what isn't in the directions. You will need an arm (suggest 8") to mount the shower head and the mounting orientation is important. There is an annoying yellow sticker indicating the up side. Consider removing the fiber disk below the metal strainer inset in the neck if you have low water pressure and debris free water. Otherwise the disk would need to be cleaned periodically. Would also recommend plumber's grease instead of teflon tape for the install. Make sure all debris and old tape is removed before installing the arm and the head. The four settings are well suited for showering preferences but flipping the head can cause a momentary spirt of cold water, hence the 4 stars.

We love it!
We bought this shower head about a month ago in satin nickel. We initially installed it without modifying it. It was pretty good, had decent pressure & we like all of the settings. It was very easy to install, it looked great, & it is very easy to change faces and tilt the entire shower head. We were a little disappointed that it did not have one hard concentrated massage setting. I came home one day to find my husband had altered the flow restrictor & wow he was right. I thought I liked it before & now it is OUTSTANDING! This is the best shower head I have ever used & it has a powerful massage function now. I have previously used Kohler, Delta, Hansgrohe, Speakman, Moen & Waterpik and this is the best. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a great low flow shower to be had so I don't really count having to modify it against the Flipside. I like to save water but I'd rather have a great shower and be more water conscious in other areas.

I'm pleased with this product!
I'm very happy with this shower head. Installed it as is--no alterations. I've tried several "rain" heads and found them to be huge disappointments--just too soft for me. But the "Koverage" side of this shower head provides a nice full downpour effect that is big enough around to give full coverage and strong enough to get the soap out of long, thick hair. The "Komotion" setting is a mix of large droplets and very fine droplets (almost mist) that gives a softer effect than the Koverage side. The "Kotton" and "Kurrent" settings are horizontal fan sprays. One is soft & misty, the other has bigger droplets and a stronger spray effect, but certainly not a hard massage. I find it's nice for loosening up a stiff neck. Overall, this shower head provides variety, good quality, and is reasonably priced. Glad I bought it.

Great Shower Head
We ordered this shower head about 3 weeks ago & so far we love it. The pressure & volume are better than our old Delta shower head which had the restricter taken out. We didn't modify this one. I don't really care about saving water and I was willing to do so if needed. I do care that it doesn't drain the hot water tank as fast so we can get more hot showers out of it.
We love three out of the four sprays although the fourth isn't bad. One of the side ones makes a lot of wind which is cools it a little. If you turn the heat up a little, it's a really luxurious spray (my favorite). The only thing I wish it had was one really pelting massage spray, the kind you can't put your face in.
The flip changes easily & I like that full face sides use all of their spray channels.
The price was the best I found other than ebay & had free shipping. My order arrived in 2 days with no problems. I have ordered a kitchen faucet, three bath sinks, three bath faucets & the shower head from Faucet Direct. One of the bath sinks arrived broken & the replacement arrived 2 days later after a couple minutes on the phone at no charge with no questions asked.
