Top Pick: Moen Magnetix Combo | $90 | Bed Bath & Beyond
A good shower can be the ultimate oasis for a challenging day, and we’ve all had our fair share of those. Personally, I prefer a handheld option for comfort and versatility, but everyone is different.
Tons of reviewers have spilled the tea on their opinions of countless showerheads available for online purchase. At Kinja Deals, we’ve combed through those reviews and compiled a list based on water pressure, flow, and usability, among other factors. Let’s get to it!
Best Dual Showerhead: Moen Magnetix Combo
Moen’s Engage Showerhead Combo has six pulse settings to best fit your desired shower experience and even has a handheld design. This product meets EPA WaterSense® criteria to conserve water but without asking consumers to sacrifice. The product also has a pause/trickle button to fit consumers’ various needs and has a kink-free metal hose for extending reach and flexibility. Sure, it’s a bit pricey but worth it.
Best Showerhead for Low Pressure: High Sierra Low Flow
Available in chrome, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, or polished brass, this showerhead is highly efficient in terms of water conservation. This product is perfect beloved by many experts and highly rated for both low flow and high pressure. However, unlike most low flow showerheads, the High Sierra nozzle won’t let minerals clog up the water flow. With a sturdy, all-metal construction, the High Sierra showerhead will give you a good spray to massage stiff shoulders after a hard workout or taxing day.
Best Shower Head for High Pressure: Aquadance Rainfall
Vigorously tested by a team of showerhead experts, the Aquadance Rainfall is well worth the $35. With two showerheads, one that’s 7" and another that’s 4", this product has six settings including power rain, pulsating massage and power mist. You’ll also be able to change easily between the two heads at the flick of a switch. Some reviewers loved it so much that they bought two.
Best Shower Head Consumer Reports: Relexa Plus 65
Consumer Reports is a big fan of this Relexa Plus 65 (#28 342 000) fixed shower head, which provides a consistent flow of water through its sturdy bass head. You won’t get a bunch of flow options with this head, but it always delivers. According to one Amazon reviewer:
“This Grohe shower head replaced a highly rated, far more expensive, adjustable spray one that disappointed me from the get-go. This Grohe gives a wider, more comfortable spray than I got from any setting on its predecessor. Plus, I’ve turned down the water volume and still get a harder spray than I got with the other 2.5 gallon head. While it’s required no cleaning yet, the Grohe looks like it’ll be a snap to clean. Inexpensive, hard spray for a 2.5 gallon head, saves water, easy to clean—I’m delighted.”
Best Rainfall Shower Head: DreamSpa Ultra-Luxury 9" Rainfall
Have you ever seen those rainfall showers in home decor magazines and felt a pang of envy? Well, we have just the right product for you. The DreamSpa Ultra-Luxury 9" Rainfall has state of the art technology for the low price of $30. There’s no dial to turn. Just push the flow control button, and you’re good to go! And it involves tools-free installation and easy to clean jets.
Best Showerhead with Hose: Waterpik Powerpulse Handheld
If you can’t be bothered with dual showerheads or rainfall showerheads, and prefer something nice and simple, the Waterpik Powerpulse Handheld is your best bet at an easy $40. Reviewers at Bed, Bath, and Beyond rated this a solid 4 out of 5. It has six spray modes and two turbo massage jets to massage your skin while you’re getting clean. And if you don’t clean your bathroom often (which you should!!), it has anti-clog nozzles so grime won’t block your good time.
Best RV Showerhead: AquaDance High Pressure
It’s no coincidence that the AquaDance High-Pressure showerhead is one of Amazon’s top 10 picks based on the company’s U.S. quality and performance standards. This product fits any standard shower arm, minimizing your plumbing bill, and AquaDance offers live customer service support in the U.S., along with its limited lifetime warranty. It has three different water flow settings, and the overhead bracket can be adjusted to various angles.
Best Luxury Showerhead: SparkPod - High-Pressure Rain
This SparkPod product comes with 90 easy to clean rubber jets, which remove hard water deposits like limescale to keep up with its high-pressure design. With each SparkPod Rain Shower Head having a maximum outflow of 2.5 gallons per minute, you can save on your water heater bill without ever sacrificing your shower quality.
