Home Improvement Tips from Cassandra Lavalle

Thank you to Waterpik for providing a complimentary prize pack for us to base this review upon and for providing an additional prize pack for our contest prize. All opinions expressed are my own.

Did you know that May is Home Improvement Month? We were excited to be able to participate in a Q&A with home expert Cassandra Lavalle, founder of Coco+Kelley, to pick her brain about home improvement projects we have been wanting to tackle in our own home.

One home improvement project that is often overlooked, also happens to be one of the cheapest, easiest, and sometimes most impactful on your family. Upgrading your shower head takes mere moments and can be enjoyed right away. Will upgrading your shower head increase your homes value? Not significantly in dollars, but it can certainly lift your families spirits immediately!

I recently upgraded our shower head to a Waterpik 14-mode Riata Nickel handheld. With 14 different nozzle settings each member of my family can customize their shower experience depending what they are in the mood for. If you like a low pressure drizzle it can do that, or if you want a high velocity jet it can do that too, and pretty much everything in between.

Installing the Waterpik could not have been easier. In fact, the entire installation took a few minutes and did not require any tools at all. All kidding aside, I think it took me longer to remove my Waterpik from the clamshell packaging than it did for me to install it.

Although it is not required, some Thread Sealing Tape ($2 available anyplace that sells plumbing supplies) is a good idea. I had some on my threads already so I did not need to do anything at all prior to installation.

Even though I always recommend reading instructions, if you are at all handy you can probably install the Waterpik without them because the process is so obvious. There are only a few parts and, to be quite honest, they only go together one way.

Upgrading your shower head is an easy way to improve your families comfort in a few minutes and for not a lot of money. The Waterpik we have can be purchased from many retailers for about $60. You can find other Waterpik handheld shower heads on from $30 on up, so there is a model to fit any budget. Be sure to checkout Waterpik’s popular line of RainFall+ shower heads, which includes their water-saving EcoRain model.

Our Waterpik Prize Pack includes a Rainfall+ Shower Head, a set of 2 unscented pillar candles, and a $25 Home Depot gift card!
