Review: Speakman Reaction Showerhead

I recently installed the Speakman Reaction showerhead in one of the bathrooms of my house, and after using it I’m reminded of an old episode of Seinfeld. The Commando 450 was a black market showerhead made in the former Yugoslavia that’s typically only used to wash elephants, but Kramer purchases one to upgrade his shower experience. Here’s the result:

 

 

While the Reaction (Model S-4002) won’t actually blast you out of the shower, it does harness your existing water pressure and runs it through an internal, turbine-powered engine for a robust, pulsating jet spray with increased velocity. With the water running you can see the turbine turning through the transparent face of the showerhead.

The improved spray was immediately evident as soon as I turned on the water. Every spout of the head is meticulously arranged to ensure no two sprays ever cross paths with each other, so you feel every single drop of water hit your skin. This single-function showerhead comes in three colors (gray, blue and green) and includes a limited lifetime warranty. I liked it and I think you will, too. Visit www.speakmanshowers.com.

Use a little thread-seal tape.

Then, screw on the new showerhead and take a shower.
