KOHLER, Wis. – Feb. 8, 2012 – Enjoying a serene spa experience beneath a rain shower with the added luxury of a handshower has long required much planning and expensive installation of plumbing behind the wall. At the 2012 International Builders’ Show, Kohler Co. debuts a budget-friendly alternative: the HydroRail, an external shower column that combines two of the most popular custom shower upgrades in one product. “HydroRail takes a shower from ordinary to extraordinary, offering simple installation and easy customization,” says Kohler marketing manager of Performance Showering Les Petch. “Homeowners can choose from a selection of KOHLER rainheads and handshowers to customize the installation to meet experiential and design preference.” Since it utilizes existing valving outside the wall, HydroRail, in most cases, can be installed in about an hour, which helps keep installation costs low. A simple-to-operate diverter at the bottom of the column adds to the ergonomic functionality for the entire family, and a slidebar bracket allows the bather to customize the water delivery height, ideal for those wanting to shower without wetting their hair, or for younger bathers.
