Anystream 2.5 Multi-Function Shower Head
Speakman S2252 Shower head
I first noticed this shower head while traveling. I stayed in a 4 star hotel and this was what was installed. It was phenomenal. So I looked around and found the unit (same part number) on-line and bought three (3) for my house. It is a nice shower head but not as forceful and full streamed as the one in the hotel. Some slight differences between the commercial model (removable faceplate/body hardware and jets) but he water flow is much more restrictive on the home model. had I known there were different models and had the vendor offered the commercial version I would have opted for that one.
One thing about this review page, make the text fields recognize special characters and spaces...

Forget all the faux chrome-colored but plastic-parts showerheads out there, even from the supposed big name classy brands. Yes, I went through a couple of pricey ones that were utterly dismal and disappointing. Then I researched and ordered the Speakman, to my utter delight and genuine satisfaction. We're talking quality here -- the true blue, solid metal to the core, heavy duty, no-kidding, honest-to-goodness superior quality real thing. I will never buy another brand. I've since bought a second Speakman showerhead -- the Retro line -- for a second bathroom. I am sold.

Speakman S-2252 Anystream 2.5 - Disappointing
I installed a Speakman S-2252 Shower Head in anticipation that it would be as powerful as several other S-2252's we experienced at certain hotels. It does seem to offer a bit more water flow than other shower heads, but it offers little in the way of a good massage. I even removed the "o" ring flow constrictor, but the "massaging" was not improved. The Waterpik I replaced provided about the same "massaging", but at considerably less cost. The S-2252 is well made and easy to adjust, but just not as good as what I had anticipated.

I bought two of these for my house 13 years ago when I first bought it. One is still in use....another I gave to a friend of mine for a house she bought. I have now remodeled my master bathroom, and am ordering another Speakman for that shower. These are the BEST showerheads I have ever used! The one I gave away didn't seem to put out the water as well as it used to...perhaps it got clogged. I used to think that the water pressure was just slacking off in that particular water line, but I have tested that shower recently with the old Speakman from the guest bathroom, and it works like it was brand-new. Looking forward to getting my new Speakman! I will never EVER buy another brand of showerhead!

My plumber recommends it!
I replaced an expensive but frustratingly drizzly "rain" shower head with this one, and I am so glad I did!
Installation was super-easy, and it gives me the strong blast of water I want, to get shampoo rinsed out.
My plumber (from the best firm in the city) says that this is a terrific showerhead, and one of his favorites. It will last forever, he told me.

Love my Speakman's
I've had a number of Speakman shower heads and I love them. I've tried many other brands but Speakman never clogs and it makes my well water low pressure seem a lot harder of a spray then it was with the old shower head.
I did take the flow restrictor out, which helped with my water pressure a lot.

Everything went smoothly, from placement of order, tracking its progress, and of course, the product itself. The shower head is waaay higher quality than what you get at the big home stores, about twice the weight! I'd highly recommend faucetdirect and the Speakman Anystream 48.

Speakman rules the shower
Absolutely the best shower head you can buy. You must remove the water saver (there are youtube videos demonstrating this), and then you will have more water flow than niagra falls. It's amazing!

I sing in the shower every day! I, too, had the flow reducer removed, and this is the most fabulous shower I've ever had. I hope I'll go on enjoying it for many years.
