KOHLER, Wis. – January 22, 2013 – After such a strong and positive response following its launch last year, the budget-friendly KOHLER® HydroRail™ Shower Column expands to include two new configurations, now offering the following:
• HydroRail-R: Rainhead and handshower shower column
• HydroRail-S: Showerhead and handshower shower column
• HydroRail-H: Handshower-only shower column

The expanded configuration offering empowers homeowners to easily and affordably personalize their shower to fit showering space dimensions, personal preferences and budget. Homeowners also choose from a selection of KOHLER rainheads, showerheads and handshowers (sold separately) to reflect their design preference.

"HydroRail transforms a standard fixed showerhead to a custom shower experience without the added expense and hassle of disrupting or changing existing plumbing behind the wall," says Kohler Faucets marketing manager of Performance Showering, Les Petch. "Since it uses existing valving and plumbing, in most cases the HydroRail can be installed in less than an hour." That makes it an easy upgrade for the plumber and keeps installation costs low for homeowners.

While the ease of installation has proved hugely popular, the enhanced showering experience and functionality provides additional benefits, as well. "A height-adjustable handshower is one of the most sought-after showering upgrades," says Petch. "It allows users to adjust the spray angle to accommodate their height, which instantly adds a new element of personalization to the showering experience." The handshower is also a convenient addition when it comes time to cleaning the showering space itself. Both the HydroRail-R and HydroRail-S have a simple-to-operate diverter located at the bottom of the shower column, which allows users to easily switch between outlets.

"HydroRail provides a simple solution to get that spa-like custom shower experience you've always dreamed of—without the disruption or cost of a major bathroom remodel," Petch says.
