Shower Panel System with Round Rain Shower Head
Great product! I would give it 5 stars but I feel like this product could use some help with the installation process. Its pretty hard tightening the supply lines to your valves coming out of the wall. Longer supply lines would be nice. Also, make sure you have excellent water pressure, as with any body spray system it requires great water pressure to really work properly.

Hand held shower is way to low always sitting on floor. Vigo should send all buyers another holder that can be mounted on wall or column in a higher location

The product is very well constructed and works great. The hoses ( to connect to your supply ) that come with the unit are 1/2" npt x 1/2" npt for connecting to 1/2" pipe threads.. These hoses should be changed to be 1/2"npt with cone washer x 3/8" compression. This is a standard hose to hook up a faucet. This allows you to install 1/4 turn stops(shut off valves). All plumbing connections should have local shut-off valves in my opinion.

Installation instructions could use improvement
First, I was disappointed to find you can only have one shower item selected at a time. You can't have the body sprays going while you are taking a shower using the shower head. My shower fantasy is dead.
Second, The installation instructions have pictures to help with the install. Great! I am a visual learner. So they included a picture of the shower panel with all kinds of measurements and they drew a woman standing there under the shower with her height shown as well and where she would be relative to the shower panel, giving you some idea of where you might want to place it. I took their suggestion and had the plumber stub out the supply lines at a precise height on the wall. However, now that I have hung the panel it seems impossibly low. Oh, it's because the woman they used to model was 57 inches tall. That's 4 feet 9 inches. Wow! For a picture guy, that certainly threw me off.
Finally, they placed the shower wand at the bottom and the hose lays on the shower floor even after you call the plumber back to raise the supply lines again. I ended up taking the panel to a sheet metal fabricator to have an extra hook added somewhat higher on the side to hang the shower wand so it would be on the floor.
Oh well, we're moving in another year. It will look great to a prospective buyer. Nobody takes a shower before they buy a house. They can have shower fantasies until they take their first shower.

It has all the features I was looking for and works great. I would suggest unless you are very apt at plumbing, you hire a plumber. I feel the installation directions were a little vast and we had to take a lot of time reviewing the installation methods.All in all, I am very satisfied.

This was a difficult install on a new construction application. I hired a plumber and it was still a struggle. Unit works well but now a piece has fallen off. I know I will not be buying another product for my new construction projects
