1. IQ Complete Personal

You want the sleek and minimal look but with powerful water pressure?

Additionally, it comes with a lifetime limited warranty for residential use and a one-year warranty for commercial use.

Shower Heads

8. Young Sliding
PRICE: $705
Dimensions: 58″L

Without knowing the inspiration for naming it “Young Sliding”, I’d like to think the massive ‘Y’ shape that the handshower and bar form have something to do with making us think about how young we are each day. Regardless, the 1/2″ male NPT fitting with 58″ long hose looks sharp with or without the thermostatic shower set (sold separately).
