Swanky Rain Shower

bigrainAt OhGizmo! we don’t talk about prices. Prices are these nasty things that stand between the stuff you desperately want, and you. Well, sometimes we do, like when stuff is below, say, four digits. In this case, we won’t.

So you’ve got the swanky palace. Everything is modern. You’ve got the embedded smoke detector, and whatnot. Now you need a shower that looks and feels like rain. The water just falls from a hole in your ceiling and looks and feels like rain.

This wonderful piece comes from company Dornbracht, and can be had in various sizes, from gentle drizzle to tropical downpour. Of course, you adjust your prices accordingly.

Go inside for more pics.

    Interesting first comment about building codes. I wonder why? Is there some code against a ceiling-install shower head? I was considering doing just that in my house with one of those large round showerheads, but the plumbers worked too fast and installed the pipe in the wall before I had made up my mind.

    I don’t think there is a code that prevents you from having stuff in your ceiling, but there is a code which says your showerhead cannot use more than 2.2 gallons of water a minute. Most showerheads suck and don’t even get that. If you’re looking for one that does, get a Sloan commercial shower head. Otherwise, you can mod cheap ones by taking out the restrictor, but they are not the same. I always take apart the showerheads in hotels and take the restrictors out of them.

    …because I’m selfish and like to shit on this planet of ours.

    Gee thanks, now why is my city on continuous water restrictions? Hmmm… there’s Phoenix and its golf courses… oh, and you.

    meh, people will never conserve… If you really believe that people will actually worry about that before “bad stuff” happens then you’ve definitely got too much faith in people.

    but as for the building restrictions, I’d like to know specifically which codes are being broken. because if it’s not serious then a do-it-yourself redesign might just allow it to scratch by.

    Everyone that is bitching on Waz needs to buy a clue. Here is a free one for all of you. When the water that comes out of the shower head goes down that hole in the thing your standing in, it’s not gone forever. It’s not like it turns into a gas and escapes our atmosphere, believe it or not it comes right back to you. Maybe in a glass of water you drink from the faucet, or maybe in that cup of coffee you drink every morning. Please go bitch about something that’s really a problem, like all the extra electricity that’s being used so tree hugging hippies can sit behind a computer and save the planet one post at a time.

    What a bunch of ad hominem crap. You three are intolerant enviro-fascists of the worst sort, forcing your values and views upon the rest of us.

    Here’s a thought, if you are tired of water restrictions – move out of the desert.

    I can report with pride that my toilet flushes my turds down the river at a healthy 6 gpf, I water my lawn in the afternoon, and I run my faucet the whole time I brush my teeth and shave – Wine Country living at its finest.

    And I pay for the right to do it.

    Ah because money should let you do what you want. I understand that arguement, oh wait no.

    okay, same guy that posted the 10:06 one.

    instead of turning comments into enviro-flaming… anyone find out what building codes were infringed? i checked their site, but it doesnt explicate.

    This from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Water website:

    http://www.epa.gov/water/laws.html

    If there is a law about showers it is somewhere in there, I don’t have time to look for it though. Maybe an enterprising soul can look for it.

    Oh yeah, the amount of water on the planet is finite. It is constantly being recycled to and from the atmosphere and ground. In fact the water that is in your coffee may have at one time been dinosaur urine! There is no such thing as “wasting water”. But there is such a thing as wasting the resources that extract and process the water from the planet.

    You people complain about the guy who takes the restirctor our of his showerhead, but drool over some wasted water in some pretty fountain in a living room? Pathetic!

  • matt

    screw tree huggin liberal craps

  • Matthew

    We don’t have a problem with water shortage and probably never will. You can have my extra restrictors.

    Now if we could just get people north of us to stop dumping chemicals into our water supply….

    Thanks for the link. I’ll be diggin around in it in my free time (if any lol).

    but ya, my stance on the whole ecosystem thing is this: we screw it up, we die off, and all resumes as normal… except with quite a few bodies that need to rot away.
    but that’s just in my not-so-optimistic opinion.

    oooohhhh!~
    Water waster I am the long arm of the water law…your ass is grass! Brown and dried up grass….but grass none the less!

    ok, everyone needs to stop complaining, because what’s done is done, and can’t be changed, and personally, I think that despite the fact it doesn’t meet building codes, it’s still a totally awesome idea, owning something like that would be awesome.

  • bob

    this is exactly the sort of thing you’d find in donald trump’s bathroom, or maybe prince rainier of Monaco. So I want one. My ex always hassled me about wasting water in the shower so i’d take a picture of myself in it and send it to her. BTW i don’t believe in saving the planet for pathetic humans. The accelerated destruction of the environment will only hasten the evolution of the catpeolpe or maybe lizard people who will eventualt rule the earth, and look cooler than we do.
