We just renovated our ensuite and used this one: https://www.amazon.ca/Daelim-Sunflower- ... dpSrc=srch

It's a solid shower unit. Swiss made heads and Korean valve.
Good luck finding replacement parts in a few years...
That is my concern with all these small companies, having to modify or look for compatible parts when they malfunction and the company that made it isn't around anymore.
Having to tear up the tiles and replumb with a new fixture should be considered in the price whenever you think you're getting a deal for top quality and off brand manufacturers.

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
I've seen them and fully agree. The good thing about these is that replacing them is a breeze and any minor damage necessary is covered by the unit.

Bought this for $300 - really impressed with it, has built in power through the water pressure for a temperature gauge, timer, and blue lights, has all the functions & rain flow, and seemed fairly well built from my plumbers feedback. If something broke I wouldn't even mess around with replacement parts, I'd buy another $300 fixture and put it right on - it just needs 2 screwable hoses & I had shut off valves put on during the reno - if it breaks I'm saving the call and just swapping in a new one.

I can see paying for quality, but when the replacement price is 2-3x, you got a fair amount of flexibility for issues. We'll see in a few years

For those who have this system can you confirm that you can adjust the direction of the shower head? It says it has a ball joint so I’m assuming it can.

I just finished bathroom reno and went with Grohe Smartcontrol system. Full blown setup with rainshower, triple body jets, and handheld. It's awesome!

Being the owner of a $15 shithead, are those thing truly worth paying a lot for? I never used one (so forgive my ignorance about them) but what kind of special feature those have that cheap heads can't do? You've picked my curiosity and interest!

This system is more than just the head - it's the valves, diverter and piping needed, too.

Adding just the shower head to your existing setup would be cheaper (though more than $15, haha.)
