DIY project time and Tomoson just happened to have a replacement shower hose that needed a review. I couldn't resist getting the unit to review since we just happened to have a hose that needed to be replaced. The shower hose to review is from Zitrion and has a list price of $23 at Amazon but sells for $9.99 there.
Do you have a handheld shower head where the connecting hose looks something like above? It still works fine, but is pulling apart and you're wondering if or more importantly when it will start leaking. Thankfully, ours doesn't leak right now, but I don't think it is far from it. Leaking hoses are an obvious one to fix, but thankfully ours isn't that bad, yet.
If your hose looks like the frayed one above, it may be time to get a replacement. The replacement hose runs at two meters, or 78", here. Zitrion also has a 1.5 meter / 60" version available. For us, we really didn't want shorter. Any longer and you run into other troubles. Replacement of the shower hose is an easy DIY project. The washers come already inside the hose ends. Just twist off the old hose and replace with the new one. The whole project takes less than five minutes to do.
The hose itself is made of a high quality stainless steel, plastic and nickel materials. The ends are a standard ½" size and fit most shower fixture in the United States. And, it comes with a 1 year free replacement warranty.Here's the replacement in place. Just turn on the shower to make sure there are no leaks. There are literally no tools required. I wish all the DIY projects were this simple to do.
Once in place, usage is no different than the older hose/shower head combo. It is very lightweight, weighing in at just 8 oz. I didn't weigh the old one before tossing, but I think the old weight was about the same. We're going to do our best to try to make sure the same thing doesn't happen to this hose.
Again, the price is just $10 and if you have prime, shipping from Amazon is free.
