American Standard Monoglide Shower Head Review and Giveaway!!



Our shower head can be a little irritating at times. It's the kind with a pull-chain so if the water is left running too long, it automatically cuts off. I understand the reasoning behind it, since it prevents wasting water, but when you're taking a shower and the water suddenly stops running, it doesn't put me in the best frame of mind :) So, when I received a Monoglide Hand Shower for review from American Standard, I was excited about being able to replace the old one. Until I saw that the Monoglide arrived in 3 small boxes (very small boxes). I am not a plumber, and have almost no experience with anything pertaining to plumbing! However, I decided to at least open the boxes and asses the difficulty level before calling for help. When I saw that all 3 boxes only contained 1 piece each, I thought, "Okay. Surely I can do this." And sure enough, I could and did - in less than 5 minutes! Yep, in about 4 minutes, I had the old shower head removed and the sparkly new shower head involved. Score one for me!
Step 1: Removed the old shower head.

Step 2: Screw on the socket/holder piece. (Told you I wasn't a plumber!)

Step 3: Attach the cord

Step 4: Screw on the Monoglide Hand Shower

All done!





Now, what I love best about the Monoglide is probably the fact that it is a hand shower. So when we're bathing the dogs or our friends need to bathe their young children, it's super-easy with the option of pulling the shower head down! 
Another great feature is the 4-function button. Full spray (the most-used in our family), aerated spray, massage spray and power mist are all easily turned on with the switch of a button! Watch the video below for demonstration.



"It all begins with our unmatched legacy of quality and innovation that has lasted for more than 130 years. It is this tradition of quality and innovation that puts us in three out of five homes in America, as well as, countless hotels, airports, and stadiums. We provide the style and performance that fit perfectly into life, wherever that may be."


One of my readers will receive an American Standard Monoglide Hand Shower!!
