Kohler K-17492 Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but ... Was very happy at first with this purchase. It looks great and initially the flip option was fun. After a few uses, however, function became the focus. The showerhead just does not deliver enough pressure on any setting. I wound up putting back my old handheld in my completely renovated bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SInging in the Rain By far this is the best showerhead I have ever owned. Each of the four spray positions gives you a unique experiance. We remodeld two bathrooms at the same time. My wife chose a different type showerhead, but now I can't keep her out of my shower. She loves the flipside. I am going to buy her one so I can get my shower back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poorly made I purchased this about 8 months ago...loved it at first I bought the handheld one,every time I returned it the the cradle holder it became weaker and weaker. Now it has snapped and can no longer hold the shower head. No way to fix other then to purchase another. Would say there went 180 dollars down the drain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is fun but maybe not necessary. We tend to choose our favorite setting and leave it there. It would be good if you had little kids and wanted to use a gentle setting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hadsome functional shower head After trying to go the big box store route finding nice looking hardware until you open it and find its all plastic... I finally broke down and went to a bath/kitchen store and found this marvelous rugged set. Then the rest was going on line to find you and I was very pleased with the whole process. Still need a shower door installed to be able to enjoy this shower but

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product This product is everything Kohler said it would be. The four different streams of water range from gentle rainfall to an invigorating stream perfect for getting energy flowing in a morning shower. This product was also purchased with a newly handicapped person in mind and has been easy for him to maneuver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shower Head This Kohler Flip showerhead is great. Provides a strong shower from all 4 sides. Goes great in our recently remodeled shower and matches well with the other brushed nickel items even though all are not Kohler. Very sturdy feel as well. Would be nice if Kohler would bundle this with the mounting and hose equipment as I had to order those items separately. Arrived quickly and in excellent shape from Faucet Direct.

  • Is it made of solid metal or just metal coated plastic?

    A. The Kohler K-17492 is made of a metal coated plastic. There are reasons that this is done. An All Metal Handshower would translate the heat from your hot water to your hand faster, also the lighter weight minimizes the risk of damage to your shower if dropped.

  • Is there a shower arm mount that is compatible with this hand shower? I currently have a bathtub shower setup and would need the hand shower to hang from the shower arm.

    A. The Kohler K-17492 is compatible with all of the hand shower mounts. The part that rests in the cradle is the part of the hose that connects to the bottom. Just make sure the arc isn't too far forward or else it will fall out.

  • what else do i need for complete shower installation ?

    A. You'd need a hose, a wall supply elbow, a handshower holder, and a trim/valve to turn the water on. Additionally, you might also need a diverter depending on the set up.

  • What is the difference between 01, 02, and 03

    A. The 01, 02 and 03 Flipside handshowers are functionally the same, but are stylistically different.

  • Can I mount this on a deck with the K-368 holder?

    A. The part of the Kohler K-17492 that rests in the K-368 is the base. With that said, I'm not entirely certain the K-17492 is too heavy to stay mounted. It will fit, but may tilt forward depending on the angle it's installed.

  • Does it come with the flexible hose and everything I need to install it?

    A. The Kohler K-17492 is the hand shower only, you'll need the hose and wall supply elbow.

  • Can I install the Flipside on my current 1/2 inch-14 thread per inch female hose?

    A. The Kohler K-17492 has a standard 1/2" connection. This can be installed on your current set up.

  • Will the K-17492 flipside fit on to any slide bar?

    A. The Kohler K-17492 will work with any slide bar

  • What options do you have to postition this for use while showering?

    A. #NAME?

  • Will it work/connect with a Delta shower hose?

    A. The Kohler K-17492 will work with Delta if it has a standard 1/2" connection.

  • What slide bar is angle adjustable that will fit Kohler K-17492 02 Handshower from the Flipside Collection

    A. I would suggest the Kohler K-8524 to go with the Kohler K-17492.
