    After seeing the ad on tv I purchased one. It's easy to install (once you get your old shower head off) as it simply screws on without the need for that pesky teflon tape. There are 100 holes which provide a slightly more then gentle spray which is very wide. Uses 2.5 gallons a minute (quite low). You can push a button to get a more concentrated and "tingly" spray as well. A very good product - and it looks nice too.

    I was wondering about these. We almost bought one when we were shopping for a new shower head (before we ever saw an advertisement). It would look really cool with our claw-foot bathtub - showing slightly above the curtain assembly.

    However, I was afraid it was going to be too gentle. I mean I need some strength in my shower when I am waking up. What do you think?

    Thanks,

    It is not strong in the 100 hole mode just pleasantly moderate. But if you switch to the center outlet it is much stronger. There is a restrictor built-in to minimize water usage. If you want a real strong shower you'll probably need to go to a massage format showerhead as these waterfall types are not in that category.

    Low flow? Don't like the sound of that! [​IMG]

    I bought one of these for a friend of mine at Christmas and she hated it. I wound up bringing it back and exchanging it for another model for about half the price and she is much more satisfied. The main problem with the Cascadia is that its flexible neck just isn't very flexible. It didn't bend to an angle that she felt comfortable with.
