American Standard Introduces Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System

Nov 5, 2019
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 5, 2019) – American Standard is making it possible to transform the shower space into a spa-like experience in just 30 minutes with its latest innovation, the Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System. The versatile, easy-to-install shower system is highly adaptable, helping ensure everyone in the family enjoys a shower experience customized to suit their needs.

Designed for functionality and versatility, the 3-in-1 Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System is available with a fixed or rain showerhead, both with a handheld feature for complete customization of the shower experience. The fixed showerhead and handheld shower come with five different spray options: drench, massage, sensitive, jet and PowerWash. The 11” rain showerhead brings the soothing comfort of a spa into your home. With the push of a button, seamlessly transition between the showerhead to the handheld or a combination.

The easy-to-install Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System can be attached to existing plumbing, eliminating the need for drilling into tile or altering anything behind the wall, which is perfect for apartment dwellers and those who are looking for a shower update, but not a full remodel. The Easy Glide Holder and adjustable height are ideal for families, allowing each user to customize their shower experience. 

The system includes:

Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System (Fixed)
o 24” or 36” shower rail 
o Available in polished chrome

Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System (Rain)
o Optional 5” height extender
o Available in polished chrome, brushed nickel and legacy bronze

Practical and adaptable, the Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System offers multipurpose functionality. With four spray options, the Spectra Versa comes with an extra-long shower hose to give full access to the entire shower. The hose elbow is designed to avoid clutter and hose overlap with the shower handle, while the AquaToggle allows for an effortless switch between spray functions. 

The Spectra Versa Retrofit Shower System from American Standard is available at bath showrooms nationwide. To learn more, visit or call (800) 442-1902.
