Showerhead neck too short
We bought fixtures for a new home, and were surprised when the plumber showed us that the neck for this Kelston showerhead is too short. Now I have to find a longer neck at the local supply house that is Kohler chrome compatable. Very disappointing that this is sending us back to searching for fixture elements at the end of our construction project.
We haven't even used it yet, so I am rating 3 stars.

Beautiful faucet....but has some issures for me
The oil rubbed bronze shower head looks gorgeous in our new shower, but I feel the valve you must install with it restrict the water pressure and keeps the water from getting quite hot enough for my liking. Our old head got much better water pressure so I don't think its our plumbing but rather the restricting valve. But...looks amazing.

Looks nice but cheep construction.
After finishing the install I bent down to pick up my tools and bumped my head (gently, mind you) on the lever handle and broke the plastic stem driver inside. This $1.40 part will now cost me $14.99 in shipping and 5-10 days waiting for the part. KOHLER looks great but is shoddy construction.

I was shocked when i took the product out of the box and discovered that half of the pieces are PLASTIC. The lever handle is metal but the rest of the control arm is plastic and so is the decorative plate behind the control arm. Several key parts for the shower head are also plastic.

As others have commented, the trim faucet is plastic, apart from the handle. And, after only three months the female valve receptacle inside the handle cracked rendering the entire trim valve useless.
Ordering a new part tonight with disappointment.

The design of this shower head and control is very pleasing to the eye. I purchased the brushed nickel and that finish is lusterous and easy to clean.
There is lots of water flow from the shower head which makes for a great shower!
