I recently completed a shower room for a client who required an overhead shower head in conjunction with a handset. The brief was for high-quality components, including a Merlyn 10mm shower enclosure, a Hudson Reed shower valve and a Hansgrohe Axor Starck handset. The aesthetics of the items were a major factor. During the research phase of the project, I came across the unusual design that is the Methven Aurajet Aio. The client found the look appealing and the chrome and white variant of the drencher. The Aurajet uses an interesting technology - the circular ring contains nozzles that are angled in such a way that the individual jets of water collide just below the ring and the resulting water flow feels soft and aerated. It provides an excellent showering experience - the water flow lives up to its description as a 'drencher', but make no mistake, it does not offer a power shower experience. If your idea of a good shower is to feel pounded by the pressure of the water and to emerge red and tingling, then this is not the showerhead for you. If you like being caressed by an enveloping cascade of soft water, then this is more likely to be to your taste. Certainly, everyone who has tried a shower in this cubicle has reported back positively, and the majority of observers are taken by the visual impact of the showerhead. Quality of construction was very high - this looks and feels like an expensive, well-designed component. Installation was straightforward - there were good fitting instructions and all the appropriate brass fittings to connect to a 15mm supply were supplied. The head is easily removable to allow periodic cleaning (useful if the installation is in a hard water area) and in the 3 months since installation, no problems have been reported. In conclusion, a well-made and innovative product which performs well and looks great.
