[Costco] Pulse Aloha Shower Panel *Clearance $99.97*

I have been eyeing a shower panel for a while but they seem quite pricey.

$99.97 for one seems pretty awesome, especially with Costco's return policy.

I'm not familiar with this particular model. I can't seem to find the exact model on the Costco site but found it on Home Depot with mixed reviews. It's is $244 at Home Depot however

Not sure if both the shower head and the Jets can be used at the same time.

I found a decent installation video as well on YouTube:



Looks like you have to drill holes for the bracket so keep that in mind.

There seemed quite a few left at my local store here in crazy cold -4000000 Alberta.

Stay warm with a new shower!

The video say
"Slide the mounting plate over nipples"
No thanks.

Also video say:
No drill (op say drill)
Use both shower/head at same time (op say he think not)
So just saying, I'm not sure who's right with his informations, op or the video.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Which location is that picture from? I’ve tried a few stores in the GTA and although they say they have them I’ve gone in and they have been sold out.

I have two of these in the home. It holds pretty darn well with the adhesive and mounting tape. Though I would probably recommend it to be drilled. So far so good and it's been two months. Its stuck on permanently I think.

I have it installed. It is pretty good for the price (I also got it for $99). You can only have shower, head, or jets open at any given time. The jets have decent pressure. You don't need to drill it into the wall. It comes with glue and sticker so you can just stick to the wall (especially tiles).

Just make sure there is enough distance between the shower head whole in the wall and the handle to control the water. Also make sure there is enough distance from the hole to the ceiling. If your ceiling is lowered intl the shower area (less than 8 feet) it won't work.

Saw a whole bunch at the overlea location yesterday. Maybe around 20 of them.

I bought this same one, but scared to install it due to cheap performance/longevity. I know it's really good for the price, but if I'm going yo be screwing it into my tiles and have it in my shower for 7-10years, is it just better getting a good quality ($300-400) shower panel instead of keeping this one??
It's not all about saving a few dollars....its the Principle of it :)

Remember this is not like a $3-400 panel.It uses the existing faucet valve and just connects to the already existing shower head outlet. Reviews on amazon seem to be decent

Well, the video says optional holes, so in my case I would just use the adhesive tape.

Also a drill is optional, not mandatory.

Quality seems decent for the price point. This is a $250 product for $150 off and Costco warranty, so seems quite reasonable.

Specs are on this page

You gotta love this review on Home Depot

"Specs say easy installation but that's just not the case. handyman said I'd need a plumber, plumber said it would be $2,000 to install. I am returning the item."
