Functional MasterShower 60" Shower Hose with Swivel Base
Poorly made product - our 2nd one just broke
We always thought Kohler was a superior product; however, we have found that it is not always the case. We purchased this product 2.5 years ago and a little after a year, it broke. We purchased another one so it would match and again, a little over a year, it broke. Warranty is only for 1 year, conveniently for Kohler. Disappointed and are now looking for another brand that will hopefully match our other shower fixtures.

Hose does not include washers
This is only the hose and the fittings for both ends. The rubber washers needed to seal the connections on both ends are not included. You will need to order separately.

Sturdy metal shower hose
This is a very good hand shower hose. It is made of solid metal, feels nice and sturdy, and swivels easily at the ends to allow you to move the hand shower around without restriction. The hose is weighty enough to hang down nice and straight when the hand shower is resting on its hook, but it does not feel excessively heavy when you are using it. The hose was slightly kinked when first installed, but my plumber correctly predicted that it would straighten itself out after hanging on the wall and being used for a couple of weeks. It did.
Kohler makes this hose in a wide variety of finishes, and the style is perfectly neutral - you can use it with most if not all of their series of fixtures. I bought two of these hoses - one in polished chrome to use with a Memoirs elbow and holder, and one in brushed bronze to use with Bancroft fixtures. Both look great. I'm not sure why the brushed bronze finish has to cost nearly three times as much as chrome, but Kohler has you over a barrel - if you are using brushed bronze fixtures, you don't have much choice but to get the hose in brushed bronze as well.

Hose length is perfect and is plenty flexible. Love the brushed bronze color to match my other items!
