Welcome to my We’re Fixing It…Home Renovation Event! I’m so glad you are here and I hope you find some products that will help you with your renovation projects as well. There are many small things you can do just to spruce up your home.
We all know that bathroom renovations are very costly. This is one of our last rooms in our remodel, because we are completely gutting it. To spruce things up a tad bit, we’ve decided to add a few items. New towels, shower curtain, blinds, rugs, toothbrush and soap holder and a new showerhead. Small things like shower fixtures can make a loads of difference and Speakman Showers have all sorts to fit anyone needs.
“For over 140 years, Speakman has pioneered the shower industry, first as a premiere American technological innovator, and continuously as a consumer shower market leader. With the creation of the Anystream® showerhead in the early 1920′s, Speakman introduced a product that popularized the modern shower as well as the total shower experience that is still widely imitated. Today, Speakman continues to advance their original mission — to offer the best showerheads on the market and design shower and bath fixtures that provide a luxurious bathing experience at an affordable price.”
Our current showerhead is just a basic cheapo that I would assume many households own. There is no technology at all with it, and I call it cheap because we’ve been through quite a few over the years. Speakman sent us two showerheads to review.
The Anystream Rain Classic Downpour 96 Spray Shower with Riser Arm was first up because I’ve been wanting a rain showerhead for a long time. I always wanted to see if they were like playing in the rain. Before I took it out of the package I admired how stylish this was. I then took it out to get everything ready for my husband to install. Only two pieces, the showerhead and the Riser Arm. My husband removed the old head and shower arm. He then tightened the new shower arm onto the threaded nipple which is on the wall. After that was tightened he added Teflon tape to the shower arm and tightened the Anystream Rain to the arm. He then used a pair of Channellocks to tighten fully and it was time to test it out.
We do have low water pressure in our home, but this didn’t matter. This 8″ in diameter showerhead has 12 patented Speakman Anystream spray nozzles which deliver 96 individual spray streams to produce a full-body rain shower. The showerhead adjusts sideways, and up or down due to the brass ball swivel joint. Everything about this showerhead is appealing! I really love this as do the kids. My husband and I are very tall individuals so we like how this moves. My husband can move it and fit under it, which is a wonderful feature. It’s not over powering just a nice steady stream of water, just like a rain shower. Besides the polished chrome finish we received, you can also purchase brushed nickel,polished brass and oil-rubbed bronze.
We also received the Anystream Classic Designer Series 48 Spray Showerhead, which embraces and updates legacy Speakman technology with refined, solid-brass components, modern contours and an assortment of attractive finishes to complement any shower décor. This showerhead is smaller but full of character. Attached is an autoflo limiter which allows you to control 6 jets and 48 spray channels. Want a your body drenched? Just move the autoflo to change the pressure. You can have gentle water flow, or a needling full body massage. The spray technology is amazing. This showerhead is built to last and again attractive with it’s solid brass construction. Cleaning is a breeze as well, as there is a self-cleaning mechanism. The Santoprene faceplate resists deposits and corrosion. I highly recommend both of these showerheads to anyone. And removing them is a breeze so if I feel like a shower with pounding water one evening I’ll just remove the rain showerhead and reattach the Classic.
Speakman have a huge line of products that are affordable, high quality, and durable. In fact in a recent survey of a thousand Speakman showerhead owners, over half reported having bought Speakman as part of an investment update to their home or property. And 71% purchased because of their hotel experience. Many fine hotels like Crowne Plaza, Sheraton, and Atlantis Casino Resorts use Speakman Showers in their showers. So if you are ever in any of these hotels, you’ll feel at home using the Anystream Hotel 50 Spray Showerhead. Just check out the features of the Anystream Hotel 50 Spray Showerhead
* 50 powerful full-body sprays
* 8 center pulsating massage jets
