[Home Depot] Grohe Euphoria 260 shower system - $578 after PM

Was looking for a thermostatic rain shower / hand shower combo for my bathroom renovation. The bath stores we visited seem to be pushing Riobel, a Quebec brand, but I'm not a fan of control layout.

Came across this German-made (EDIT: German-designed, actually made in Portugal) Grohe system, which I think has a nicer control layout:
https://www.grohe.ca/en_ca/euphoria-sys ... 28001.html

Home Depot sells it for $741:

Amazon.ca sells it for $669:
https://www.amazon.ca/26128001-Euphoria ... b_title_hi

However, Home Comfort Centre, a Richmond Hill-based retail store, sells it for $642:
https://www.homecomfortcentre.com/grohe ... er-sy.html

HD matches online stores, but does a 10% beat on bricks and mortar, so $642 becomes $578.

It's an online exclusive, so you have to call in and get it shipped (free) to your house or local HD store.

I did this yesterday, and picked it up in store today. Best price I've seen for a Grohe system anywhere.

This can be had in mid 200s if you look. I buy them regularly.

But you're right for thermo and and rain head. Your price is good.
Not the same model though. 122629 and 26128001 are significantly different. 26128001 is better model, let alone newer.

Let's just say I'm a bit of an insider.

Yeah, we wanted a rain head AND wand.

pistolpetejr, besides the diverter, what makes the one I bought better?

(totally new to the plumbing world, haha.)

+1 for Grohe.
I have one of their systems with the shower head + rain head + 3 x jets, and I look forward to my showers everyday :)
Their warranty is top notch as well. My shower head malfunctioned at one point, and they sent a replacement very quickly, even though it was the previous owner of the house that bought and installed the system.

I had mine since February, no problem yet. In fact, works very well. Won't go back to non-thermostatic faucets. Bought 2 units from Wayfair, one unit had a minor problem due to poor workmanship, Wayfair sent me a replacement and didn't ask for the defective one be returned. I fixed the problem myself. Now, I have one brand new unit as spare.

I would also recommend the Kalia brand, got this model (with a tub spout and 6 way diverter) for $499

Since getting a thermostatic valve I would never go back
RFD'ers to avoid:
EEE2 - Will string you along for 2 weeks, offer to EMT a deposit but then never follow through with buying anything
TrevorBurns - Backs out of deals at the last minute after stringing you along.

I have Riobel from my past reno in the bathroom, and since 3 or 4 years I am very happy with it. Not that expensive, easy to clean, nice design and reliable.

I always recommend Riobel, excellent quality, many good styles and loads of options, 3 function valve built into 1 body/cartridge, excellent service

I’ve installed hundreds of valves from this brand and problems have been almost non existent

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again. - Andre Gide

Cheaper alternative would be: https://www.wayfair.ca/home-improvement ... y1040.html

I have it in my home and enjoy it very much.
You get what you pay for, those things are junk. Just a bundle of plastic hoses behind a fancy cover. Not built for any sort of longevity. I call these a house flipper special
