Looks nice but cheep construction.After finishing the install I bent down to pick up my tools and bumped my head (gently, mind you) on the lever handle and broke the plastic stem driver inside. This $1.40 part will now cost me $14.99 in shipping and 5-10 days waiting for the part. KOHLER looks great but is shoddy construction.

Cheaply madeAs others have commented, the trim faucet is plastic, apart from the handle. And, after only three months the female valve receptacle inside the handle cracked rendering the entire trim valve useless.
Ordering a new part tonight with disappointment.

Inferior QualityI was shocked when i took the product out of the box and discovered that half of the pieces are PLASTIC. The lever handle is metal but the rest of the control arm is plastic and so is the decorative plate behind the control arm. Several key parts for the shower head are also plastic.

Beautiful faucet....but has some issures for meThe oil rubbed bronze shower head looks gorgeous in our new shower, but I feel the valve you must install with it restrict the water pressure and keeps the water from getting quite hot enough for my liking. Our old head got much better water pressure so I don't think its our plumbing but rather the restricting valve. But...looks amazing.

Showerhead neck too shortWe bought fixtures for a new home, and were surprised when the plumber showed us that the neck for this Kelston showerhead is too short. Now I have to find a longer neck at the local supply house that is Kohler chrome compatable. Very disappointing that this is sending us back to searching for fixture elements at the end of our construction project.
We haven't even used it yet, so I am rating 3 stars.

great choiceThe design of this shower head and control is very pleasing to the eye. I purchased the brushed nickel and that finish is lusterous and easy to clean.
There is lots of water flow from the shower head which makes for a great shower!

Does this have trim for the push button diverter? If not, what rough-in valve to I get so use with a hand shower? Also is there a roman tub facet for this set?
A. The Kohler K-T13493-4 does not have a trim with a push button diverter. The matching Kelston diverter valve trim is the K-T13661-4 and the corresponding valve is the K-728-K.
Can the K-T13493-4 be combined with a separate hand held shower that would mount on a separate holder? If yes, what other components would I need?
A. The Kohler K-T13493-4 will need to have another valve and trim like the K-T12189-4 and K-728-K.
does this shower head come with the oil rubbed bronze shower arm?
A. Yes, the shower arm finish will match the shower head.
How do you adjust the maximum hot temperature that it will allow?
A. My best suggestion is going to be contacting Kohler to see how to safely do this without damaging anything. They can be reached at 1-800-456-4537
Is there a diverter valve (transfer valve) that matches this set?
A. The Kohler K-T13493-4 is compatible with the Kohler K-2971-KS HiFlow Rite-Temp Valve. If you have any other questions, please contact me at (800) 864-2555, Extension 725 and I would be glad to help you.
