Essential Info

Don't take a chance at having yourself or loved one accidentally burned by hot water. By using the HotStop™ Anti-Scald Handheld Showerhead, you can avoid the damage done to thousands of people every year as a result of scalding tap water. The showerhead has been designed to rapidly bring water flow down to a trickle when water reaches unsafe temperatures. Once at a trickle you can adjust the water settings and as soon as the line cools, the flow re-starts automatically. Installation does not require access to behind the wall piping; these are end-point devices that can be installed in any home, condo or apartment where hot water temperatures are required. This showerhead will create a safe and soothing water temperature in your bathroom shower.

If you are looking for more than just a showerhead, also available is the HotStop Anti-Scald Tub Spout with Diverter and Showerhead Combination Kit, sold separately.

Hands-On Research
Just like the HotStop Tub Spout with Diverter and Showerhead Combination Kit, the shower head was very easy to install. It does not STOP water flow completely, but simply takes it down to a trickle so that the water isn't hot enough to burn.

    This product works as advertised. A great solution to an apartment where there is no access to the central water heater. Reasonably priced and easy to install.
    DR. LARRY -- baldwinsville, NY   12/7/2012
    This is an excellent showerhead. I bought two, one for each shower and they work great my wife loves them and they protect from the hot water changes that occur.
    KARL -- ballwin, MO   11/30/2012
    This product works perfectly. I am very pleased.

    Very satisfied with our purchase, the perfect solution to our problem at a price we could afford without compromising on quality.
    VICKI -- hurst, TX   4/14/2011
    Really like the anti-scald feature. The handset itself is a bit heavy and the bracket that comes with it is just cheap plastic that looks like chrome. I have the bracket from my other showerhead and am using it but the weight of the sprayer makes it slightly unstable/hard to adjust.
    SHARON -- schenectady, NY   1/6/2011
    I bought this for my handicapped mom to go along with a shower bench I purchased. I also thought it would be great for my son who is just starting to take showers on his own. I tested it with hot water and it slowed to a trickle, exactly as advertised. It comes with plumbers tape and installs in seconds. I bought the moen clip so she can put this down while shampooing and still have it spray on her. You can also use the pause feature as well. The only con is I miss my other handheld shower which had two heads instead of the one. There may be better and less expensive handheld showers but for me the anti-scald feature is worth it for my peace of mind. And it gives them both a bit of independence in the bathroom.
