AquaDance antimicrobial high-pressure hand shower

Reviewed by David • October 18, 2018

AquaDance, why bother investing R&D to develop this amazing shower head IF...

This product review is for Antimicrobial/Anti-Clog High-Pressure 6-setting Hand Shower by AquaDance.

I purchased this hand shower because my wife was constantly complaining about the lack of water pressure. We also have very hard water in our house so our shower head gets pretty nasty very quickly with visible lime scale and mineral deposits on the surface of the shower head. This probably was contributing to the low water pressure as the lime scale and mineral deposits clog the nozzles. For this reason, I had to replace our hand shower every few years and I decided to give this one a try because this shower head supposedly has Antimicrobial Technology that inhibits the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria for less clogging and more water pressure.

We were very happy with this hand shower because it has six adjustable water spray setting and they all had good water pressure. My wife was thoroughly impressed with the water pressure and in fact, she said one of the settings had too strong of water pressure for our kids.

Having said that, I purchased this on October 17th, 2017, which is exactly 1 year ago and last night the water started spewing out from the hose and it appears that inside of the hose is cracked. I'm not sure if this is due to the fact that we have hard water but I never had this problem with other hand shower hoses in the past. In the past, I had to change the hand shower every few years because the shower head looked disgusting and lost water pressure due to the lime scale and mineral deposit build ups but never because of a crack or leak on the shower hose.

What's interesting is that if you read the Amazon reviews of this product from other buyers, there are few other instances of this problem reported so sounds like AquaDance has some quality issue with the hose, which is very unfortunate because the shower head itself is pretty amazing. I'm not sure why they had to include a cheap shower hose with a shower head that supposedly has Antimicrobial Technology. Why go through investing in R&D to develop an awesome shower head, only to come short of consumer's expectation and satisfaction by pairing with cheap shower hose? Maybe this is the strategy for them to sell more?

Anyways, I just ordered another AquaDance hand shower to give them another chance. I want to believe that I was unlucky and got a defective one but if the hose leaks again, I'm just going to buy a heavy duty shower hose separately and replace the one that provided by AquaDance and just keep the shower head. I will update this review to share how my second AquaDance hand shower experience turned out down the road.
