What’s up everyone! I’ve had the showerhead, Nebia By MOEN Quatro handshower, for about 6 months now. I’m going to tell you my experience with the installation and how it’s held up since.
I personally am a very handy person when it comes to replacing or installing new things around the home. I have a wife, a 7 year old son and a 5 year old daughter, so it can get a little hectic around the house.
And so, I decided to replace the kid’s bathroom shower head with the Nebia By Moen Quatro handshower. I chose Moen because they are well-known and make good products. Furthermore, I have a Moen faucets in my kitchen and bathroom sinks as well as the other showerheads I use in my bathroom.
All in all, I’ve never had any real issues with using Moen products. When I did have an issue, I contracted customer service and they sent me a replacement cartridge for my sink faucet.
Now let’s get into the install, step-by-step.
A Simple Installation Process
- Open the box, make sure all the parts are inside and make sure you have all the necessary tools you will need to perform the job at hand.
- Take out anything in the shower that will fall out get in your way, (shower caddie, etc.).
- Using a wrench loosen the nut that is holding your showerhead to the pipe coming out of the wall and remove it.
- Now grab the new Moen showerhead. There should be 3 parts.
- Using Teflon tape place it around the end of the pipe come out of the wall where you will screw on the new one.
- Hand tighten the cylinder shape part onto the end of the pipe where you placed the Teflon tape. No need to use a wrench or pliers as that may damage it. Make sure it’s solidly hand tightened.
- After tightening it, take the hose and screw it on the cylinder part where it can only be screwed onto. Hand tighten that real good. Again don’t use pliers as you may over tighten and break it.
- Next, after tightening the hose to that end, take the other end of the hose and tighten it onto the showerhead handle. Again there’s no need for any tools.
- Then, after you installed the hose at both ends put the handle to the cylinder and it should connect magnetically.
- Lastly turn your shower on and check for leaks. If it’s leaking tighten a little more.
And that’s it! The Nebia by Moen handshower is super easy to install. For me, it was more time consuming taking off the old showerhead than installing this new one.
I also really like that it came pre-assembled for the most part, making it install. I didn’t have to use a wrench or pliers to tighten anything. Everything was simply hand tightened.
It has 4 spray modes you can switch through from Angel Hair, Hard Spray, Super Saver and Soft Spray. My kids are the only ones who use it and aren’t complaining. They actually tell me they like it, especially the mist mode.
According to Nebia, the showerhead has up t0 50% water savings compared to standard showerheads and has up to 60% more force.
How It’s Holding Up
The handshower is working quite well and has no leaks. I’ve used several different brands prior to this Moen handshower and so far this one has been super solid, while others started leaking after a while.
I would say Moen lives up to its reputation of offering a high-quality product. I currently have no complaints. If you have small kids , you have to have a detachable showerhead. It makes your showering life so much easier when you can spray the kids off.
Pros & Cons
The only 2 things negative about this showerhead is for my install I couldn’t keep the shower caddie that hung on the pipe coming out of the wall. If you have a longer pipe you should be fine using one.
My second complaint is there’s no push button on the handle to stop the water. So it isn’t water efficient when you’re washing the kiddos up with the water continuously running. I really wish they had that option.
- Nice, well made product
- Shower water comes out feeling nice on all modes
- Easy install
- Can’t use shower caddie
- No push button to stop the water
Overall I really like the Nebia, Moen Quattro Handshower, as do my kids. I would definitely suggest buying this showerhead. What’s also cool is that Nebia offers 2 other shower systems in their collection for a bit of variety.
I know I would buy it again, especially if they added a push button stop to the handle. Hope that you found this review helpful!
