With our years of experience and testing, we have found that there are some key features that can help you make a better buying decision.

Features 9 Spray Functions  

This icon indicates the number of spray functions the shower head has. Numbers start at "1" and go up from there. Typically, the higher the number of spray functions, the less likely it is a good candidate for low water pressure areas.

Recommended for Low Water Pressure areas  

This icon means the product is recommended for low water pressure areas. In some installations, you just do not have strong water pressure. If your house's water supply is from a well, for instance, nothing you can do short of installing a booster pump will increase you water pressure. For those situations, we recommend these products.

Easy, Leak-free Installation  

This icon indicates that the shower head or hand held shower head proved easier to install than other products – mainly because we were able to achieve a leak-free installation right away. Find out more about how to fix or avoid a leaking shower head or hand held shower head>>

Features a brass ball joint  

This icon indicates that the shower head or hand held shower arm mount has a brass ball joint. The ball joint is the part of the shower head or handheld shower arm mount that connects to your shower arm (the pipe coming out of the wall). A brass ball joint is more durable than the alternative ABS (plastic) ball joint. Brass ball joints often require Teflon tape for a leak-free installation.

Features Massage Shower Spray Setting  

This product features a massage shower spray setting. Multiple function shower heads and hand held showers like those with massage sprays require more water pressure to work properly, so if you don't have good water pressure in your house, don't spend the money on extra shower spray settings. Find out if you have good water pressure >>

Features Aeration Shower Spray Setting  

This product features an aeration spray setting. Aeration spray functions add air to the waterflow to create a soft bubbling sensation that can be extremely soothing. Shower heads and handheld showers with aeration spray functions, like those with massage spray functions, require good water pressure to work properly. Find out if you have good water pressure >>

Features Misting Shower Spray Setting  

This product features a mist spray setting. Mist spray functions release very fine droplets of water to create either a cool or warm mist spray. Because the water droplets are so small, they are quickly cooled down by the surrounding air in the bathroom. Mist spray functions can be especially refreshing on hot days or after exercise. Often, mist sprays will leave a pleasant light tingling sensation on your skin.
