Epica Hand Held Shower Head Review

After a string of so many big hits, it’s a shame to end the weekend on such a big miss. The Epica Handheld shower head promised many things, such as all metal construction, an extra-long hose, and a long life of use. It delivered on exactly none of those promises.

To start, the unit was very clearly chrome plated plastic, not the “All-Metal” construction promised. It’s a shame that something so simple as what it’s made of is being misrepresented. It also didn’t bode well for my experience with the shower head.

As for the “Extra Long Non-Kink Hose”, while it is longer than the standard  6 foot hose length, it’s not all that different than just about any hose with any handheld shower head. In fact, just a cursory glance over your Amazon search results will net you comparable hand held shower heads with 7′, 8′, or longer lengths!

Moving on, the quality control. I could not attach the unit to the water spigot, because it was not assembled correctly, and made installation impossible. So this might be a record short review, because I can only review the product based on looks, and while it looks nice, no one buys a shower head just to look at!

I contacted Epica, because after my wonderful experience with their folding step stool, I thought they’d make it right. Alas, I never heard back. Whether I just slipped through the cracks, I don’t know. I do know I can’t recommend this shower head at all.

Calibre Products Reacher/Grabber Pickup Tool

This is a tall person’s world, and I’m not playing well in it. I got the most awesome Epica Folding Stool last year, and while it has served me well, I am sometimes still just short of being able to reach things on the top shelf. Thankfully, most of the time, Hubby is right here to reach those things. Most of the time. For the times he isn’t, I now have the most awesome Calibre Products Reacher/Grabber.

Yup, I have a mechanical hand now. I’ve gone full Terminator Genisys here, just in time for summer. The lightweight, molded aluminum shaft is long enough to reach anything in my house, and strong enough to safely hold almost anything out of reach. It’s also good for Hubby, because being tall is a curse when his back is borked, and things are on the ground when bending is out of the question. Enter my Calibre Grabber. Yes, mine. If he asks nicely, he can use it, but I claimed it as soon as the box was open.

It has a soft-grip, non-slip rubber lining on the “claw”, meaning what I grab stays grabbed, but the 4.5″ opening is big enough to grab almost anything. Calibre Products claims it’s accurate enough to pick a coin up off the floor, and I’ll be damned if it didn’t do just that on the first try. It’s been used so far for stuff on shelves, stuff in the floor, and even stuff that falls behind other stuff! Because the gripping claw can change orientation by rotating the head, you can fit the Calibre Grabber behind dressers, TV stands, or really, just about anywhere. The trigger is a molded plastic with a easy ergonomic shape and rubberized finish for sure grip. Another plus is the line used for tension is easily replaced should it snap, but no worries there either, because Calibre Products stands behind their Grabber with a Hassle-Free, 100%  Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee.

I love my Grabber and had no idea how incredibly useful it would be until I had it. Hubby better get his own, ‘cuz this one is all mine.
