Nebia by Moen Quattro Showerhead Review: Backed by Apple’s Tim Cook
Nebia has just unveiled the all-new Nebia by Moen Quattro, its most affordable water-saving showerhead yet. The San Francisco startup’s showerhead is backed by the likes of Apple CEO Tim Cook, Fitbit CEO James Park and Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia.
Now available for pre-order on Kickstarter for $99USD with shipping beginning in September 2021, The Quattro is being dubbed as one of the most luxurious, functional and water-efficient showerheads in the world.
For the first time, Nebia is offering four spray modes–including two powerful, high-pressure spray modes in addition to its popular Nebia spa spray–satisfying all types of shower preferences.
The new model also features the brand’s easiest installation yet: a 1-2 minute process that’s as easy as changing a lightbulb.
The four spray modes Quattro offers are:
- Hard Spray: A strong stream from precision nozzles ideal for rinsing thick and curly hair, and for the feeling of a high pressure massage.
- Angel Hair: 150 streams of water for a calming and soothing sensation that provides surprisingly high pressure.
- Soft-Spray: Designed to bring Nebia’s signature spa-like feeling into your home for a drenching, misty experience.
- Super Saver: For when you want to save the most water, while staying plenty warm. A soothing mode that’s ideal for young kids, pets, and sensitive skin.
“At Nebia, we are dedicated to designing products that feel great and save water,” said Gabriel Parisi-Amon, Nebia CEO and Co-Founder. “After years of innovating nozzle technologies to improve performance and lower costs, we’re very excited to introduce our most affordable product yet.”
Nebia by Moen Quattro Review
Nebia sent iPhone in Canada the Quattro for a quick hands-on review, which we’ve been testing for a couple of weeks. Now, this is not normally something we would review but Nebia had us at ‘Tim Cook’. That being said, the installation was a breeze, as all you need is a wrench to unscrew your old showerhead, and then screw on the Nebia. There’s no need to call your plumber buddy Mario.
The Nebia by Moen Quattro showerhead is actually larger than I expected. There is some weight to it so I never used it handheld.
Here’s what it looks like from the side:
This is the back of the Nebia–there’s a magnet mount that didn’t apply to my setup:
So how did the Quattro showerhead fare? I was actually impressed with the ‘hard spray’ setting, as it offers a wide spray with pressure. The spray is so wide that it almost does feel “spa-like”. We’re able to almost get a rainfall showerhead experience with the handheld version; the spray is wider than the width of our body.
When changing between settings though, there will be a slight temperature change, as you get a touch of cold water when changing jets. The ‘soft spray’ is also neat to try as it does fire out a fine mist as intended. But you need to crank up the hot water to compensate for the misting effect as it runs a bit cooler.
Overall, searching for a new showerhead is not something you do until your existing one bites the dust. If we were in the market for a new showerhead, this is one we’d consider. We actually still look forward to using it every day.
Quattro is available for pre-order now in Chrome, Matte Black, Brushed Nickel, Brushed Gold, and Oil Rubbed Bronze starting at $99 USD on Kickstarter and will retail for $129 USD, and ships in September.
