Vigo VG08004 Reviews
Rated 3 out of
Not the best but for the price it's OK!I got a plumber to installed mine. The plumber does not have any problem and installed it within 1.5 hr. Quality wise I am not impressed.
Everything is Chrome/silver plastic and cheap looking. The hand shower feels hollow and looks like it will crack or break into pieces if it falls on the tiled shower floor. After it was installed I found leaking at the panel base whenever the hand shower is being used. The head shower, side shower and spout seems OK though.
The chrome plastic side bar that carries the hand shower is not very steady and actually wobbly as it was held by only 2 metal brackets that screw to it's side.
I find the battery-for the temperature digital display compartment is not easily accessible. When it is time to change the battery. You will need to take the whole panel down to get to it.
I also couldn't get the max temperature hot water. Water is mildly warm(92 degrees) at the max. Even though the indicator show 118 degrees. My bath room basin faucets are much hotter. Both comes from the same hot water tank. I would like it hotter so I can enjoy the steam action from the hot water inside the shower.
My plumber will have to come back to inspect what goes wrong. I hope he can fix all these issues.

Think twice before buying!Installation was a breeze but after 3 showers. I only got cold water 82 degrees max out. (Initially 1st shower I got 92 degrees). VIGO tech support told me this model can only take water pressure between 25-45 psi. Mine was higher so the thermostat control/mixer will not work properly in fact it may burst he said. I was told in order to fix it. I must get 2 - 1/2" pressure regulators for the hot and cold water pipe. It was difficult to find and when I Google it. The cheapest cost more then $120 for both plus the labor charges another $200! I can buy a new one.
I never know that good high pressure psi can be an issue. So I am returning it. Cost me a bundle just to get the plumber again to remove it. I think this should not be the case with any shower when water pressure is high. In fact this is ridiculous! So if you want hot water shower please avoid this model to save a return. I am very disappointed.
