    This is the ultimate bathroom upgrade and update. I put the column together in the living room and got more complements than it could in the bath. The installation instructions seem straightforward but I felt there should be cut offs at the supply lines. I pulled it out to retile the shower with white Carrara tile and will have more pics when done. This would be beautiful in any shower.

    The Anzzi Melody Shower Panel delivers an extremely relaxing, full shower of water that’s like a waterfall covering you. The shear amount of water coming out of the overhead shower is something I’ve never experienced.
    When Anzzi stated that “…The swiveling Heavy Rain shower head hangs overhead releasing a steady torrent of soothing water from above”, they weren’t kidding! There’s a LOT of steady water coming out of the overhead shower head…Surprisingly so.
    Initial Observation:
    Unpacking the Shower Panel and its associated parts, I discovered everything was very well packaged resulting in no damage whatsoever.
    When I saw the way the hot and cold water lines would need to be connected, I knew I had somewhat of a project on my hands.
    My shower is a walk-in, tiled shower. As such, my existing water control valve is behind the wall tiles, and all my water lines utilize PEX tubing.
    So, not only did I need to figure out how to remove my existing control valve without removing any wall tiles, I also needed to devise a method to connect my existing hot and cold PEX lines into CPVC which is something I could easily work with.
    I have no tools to work with PEX lines, nor did I want to invest in the bands, and crimpers for a one-time project.
    The other thing I noticed after doing several dry run placements of the Shower Panel to find a comfortable height, was the supplied 16-inch braided supply hoses for the hot and cold water were going to be way too short.
    I determined that I was going to need those hoses to be at least 36-inches in length. The only place I was able to find hoses in this length, in braided stainless steel and have good quality was through an online plumbing supply company.
    Formulating My List:
    After a good deal of online research, I managed to put together a list of materials necessary for me to install this Shower Panel. With the exception of the 2 water supply lines, I was able to purchase everything needed from my Home Depot store.
    The following is what I put together:
    (2) SharkBite ½ in. Brass Push-to-Connect Couplings. This enabled me to connect a CPVC and PEX line together.
    http://tinyurl.com/lswyazw
    ½ in. x 10 ft. CPVC pipe.
    http://tinyurl.com/j3orfu7
    (2) ½ in. CPVC 90-Degree S x FIPT Drop Elbow. This is used to run the final CPVC line into and enable me to provide a connection for the Shower Panel’s 2 water supply lines.
    http://tinyurl.com/jhgsfl9
    (2) ½ in. Brass Hex Nipple. This nipple screwed into the end of the 90-Degree elbows to enable the hot and cold water supply lines of the Shower Panel to screw into.
    http://tinyurl.com/z6lm39e
    GE Silicone II 10.1 oz. Clear Window and Door Caulk. This is a Neutral Cure Silicone necessary when caulking against metal. Ordinary silicone will eventually corrode metal.
    http://tinyurl.com/gmzhv7e
    Teflon Tape. Used to provide your screw-in fittings a water tight seal.
    http://tinyurl.com/jfb749s
    HDX Ratcheting PVC Cutter. Contrary to the reviews of this item, I encountered zero issues using this cutter.
    http://tinyurl.com/j6nth9m
    8 oz. PVC Handy Pack Purple Primer and Solvent Cement. Used to prime and cement the PVC lines and fittings.
    http://tinyurl.com/glebl37
    Installation:
    The provided instructions are simple to say the least. What the instructions don’t tell you are the measurements necessary to drill and install the 2 mounting brackets. It would have been a huge time saver had Anzzi included a simple paper Template for the brackets and holes.
    I ended up cutting the top of the box the Shower Panel came in to use as a template. I slid this cardboard under the cross braces on the back of the Shower Panel.
    I was then able to transfer over the hole for the overhead shower arm, and the indents for the two mounting brackets unto this cardboard.
    I then squared and leveled this template up against the shower wall, tape it and mark my 4 holes to drill.
    I ended up cutting a section out of the wall opposite the wall the shower was on to access the existing water control valve. This was my only option to remove this valve.
    After cutting the water control valve out, I was able to connect the CPVC lines and fittings using the materials listed within my List.
    After leak checking all my connections, I found one slight drip on one screw-in fitting. I was able to fix this simply by removing and adding more Teflon tape to that fitting.
    My plans are to do a final leak check, then patch finishing the access hole I made, and adding caulk around the sides of the Shower Panel.
    One word on the caulk…From what I’ve read, ordinary silicone caulk / adhesive when used against a metal surface will eventually inhibit corrosion due to the acidity of the silicone.
    To prevent this, you need to use what’s called a “Neutral Cure” silicone which doesn’t have the acidic qualities of standard silicone.
    The one I’ve identified within my List is the only one I’ve been able to find at Home Depot.
    Final Thoughts:
    What I don’t like about this Shower Panel:
    The provided 16 in. braided stainless steel water supply lines were too short. Granted, this was my situation however, being only 16 in. in length is pushing it a bit to afford the average homeowner the slack and routing necessary to make a reliable connection.
    The (4) screws provided for the 2 mounting plates are shiny, cheap, nickle plated steel and not stainless steel. This necessitated a trip to the local hardware store to buy (4) stainless steel screws of the same diameter and length. Above all else, I don’t need to find my mounting screws rusting out on me.
    The omission of any specifications on the placement of the hanging brackets and holes for the brackets. A simple paper template provided would have been an immense amount of help.
    The top and bottom of the shower panel are open. I’m not overly concerned about the bottom being open, but I am somewhat concerned with the top being open, and the chance for water spray being able to get into the inside of the Shower Panel making its way down towards the original opening where the old control valve was. After using the shower several times, I didn’t notice any water that made its way behind the Shower Panel, so this may not be a concern after all.
    Although the hand held spray wand works really well…Better than any spray wand I’ve had before…It’s made of plastic, as is the overhead shower head. Really disappointing, but negligible due to both working as well as they do.
    What I like about this Shower Panel:
    Overall, I’m very impressed with this Shower Panel, and very relieved that I am comfortable with its looks, and performance.
    When I removed the original control valve, I was then at the point of no return…So I’d better really like it a lot, or I’d have a ton or work to put everything back together the way it was. Well I wasn’t disappointed in the least.
    I love this Shower Panel. It provides me with a shower I’ve really never experienced before. Literally, there is so much water coming out, it really surprises you at first. It’s so soothing to experience, and just plain Wonderful!!!
    Well worth all the research, and work involved in its installation, and Highly Recommended!!!

    First let’s take a look at this Modern shower pedestal . It’s a very modern design with a complement of 6 spray nozzles and 2 sturdy knobs on the face . The face is Black tempered Glass , chromed finish knobs and nozzles with a coated open frame . The shower head is also chromed finished plastic with silicon nozzles . The pedestal is complemented with a hand held sprayer attached with a stainless steel hose. The feel of the knobs and nozzles are solid .The hand wand has a good grip but feels a little light being chromed plastic. The mixer valve has a ident that won’t let you go beyond the 100 degree mark without pushing in a spring loaded button. However this 100 degree marking is only that , there is no actual device in the mixer that measures or meters the water temperature. It will stop you from scalding yourself if your water heater is cranked up .There is no adjustment for water flow it’s either on or off. The plumbing behind the glass is connected by several vinyl hoses with clamps from the mixer to the shower head, hand sprayer and Spay jets. The main hot and cold water supply lines are stainless steel.
    The install .
    The first thing you need to determine is water supply. This is not a retro kit if you have a mixer valve behind tile, stone or a fiberglass preformed enclosure. There is no application for connecting to a mixer valve and needs a dedicated Hot and Cold water supply. Changing a mixer valve can be done but there is added work you might not have thought of or want to tackle. Depending on your plumbing skills with, cooper, galvanized pipe, etc. getting the mixer valve out can be a chore. If you have access from behind the wall ,the easiest option is to remove some Sheetrock to expose the pipes and then go to town. If your working from the front through tile fiberglass etc this can be challenging but it’s possible. Once the valve is out a hot and cold valve needs to be installed . This might be a job for a plumber depending on your application and skills. If your sweating new copper valves think about fire safety.
    If you have a hot and cold valves already the install is very easy. If this is being installed in a new application even easier if you planned accordingly. Another consideration is the hole that is left removing the mixer valve some type of seal will be needed to not let water migrate into the wall. Since the the new frame is not sealed to the shower wall, nor does it have a top or bottom water will find it way .
    The unit mounts with two brackets that are mounted securely to the wall. Once the brackets are installed attach the water lines and place the fixture on the brackets. The shower head and hand nozzles should have already been installed and your ready to go.
    Performance,
    The shower head has good volume feels like medium rain drops. The 6 spray heads work well with a good even spray. Hand sprayer has good pressure with ample jets, and a good reach.
    For my application my household pressure is running at 70 psi the high end of the rated scale.
    The instructions are very limited, a visit to Home Depots website will get you more information and to get the most information visit the manufacturer web site. The manufacture customer service is responsive and knowledgeable.
    All in all if you are starting from scratch or upgrading your shower with a hot and cold water valves this is a winner for the DYI. If your trying to retro a shower enclosure with a mixer valve, do your home work as this might be a bigger project than you anticipated. If you have a tub shower combo this model is not going to work.

    The ANZZI Melody 59 in. 6-Jetted Full Body Shower Column with Heavy Rain Shower and Spray Wand is a pleasure for us to own and to use. It arrived well packed and had a total shipping weight of about 24 lbs. It is attractive and functional. What we like best is the large rain shower head. It puts out a full column of water and it is fully adjustable. The same goes for the hand held sprayer, it puts out so much water and so evenly that our old hand held shower does not compare. The temperature control it is better and more effective than our old single leaver mixer valve. The shower gets hot quicker than before and I am sure that is because it has a much higher flow rate. The glass panel is easy to clean and should look good for a long time.
    After getting a few bids from plumbers I decided to do the install myself. I was replacing a typical single head shower with a single leaver mixer valve and all sweated copper pipe. The shower stall is in excellent condition and backed up to a closet so I cut a 14 in. X 14 in access from the back side. I used an oscillating multi tool saw to cut the pipes from the old valve. After cleaning up the copper pipe with sandpaper I then installed 1/2 in. nominal compression inlet x 3/8 in. o.d. compression outlet quarter turn straight valve directly to the ½ in. copper pipe. The hoses supplied with the unit are only 12” long and would not reach my access point so I replaced them with 3/8 in. compression x 1/2 in. fip x 36 in. faucet hoses. The total DIY install took me about 4 hours and cost me about $55 in parts. I have provided some photos and a short video I hope they help

    We’re in the process of adding a bathroom to our new house, and I was thinking about what to do for a shower. After seeing some recent commercials for similar products, I started looking into these shower panels. We had our contractor panel in, but it is something that you could do with a standard plumbing setup for a tub shower, which is important if you’re doing it yourself. This unit looks very sharp. We’ve shown the unit off to several friends and relatives, and they’ve universally said, “wow!” at the look. It really looks nice.
