Delta 75588RB In2ition
A dual head combo, that will give you flexibility as you wash. You can choose to detach and use it in a handheld way, or set it as a fixed option spraying down from above. The unique feature of this model is that you have an outer rim that can continue spraying from above whilst you use the portable model for tasks such as rinsing the shampoo out of your hair or soap from your body.
It includes a handy pause function that will limit the water quite substantially without actually needing to turn it off. This will allow you to carry out other tasks without wasting too much water. But that’s not all, the full range of functionality includes multiple massage settings with varying power levels, plus a full body rinse.
Once detached, it can utilize the reasonably long, seventy two inch hose to give decent reach. Overall, with the feedback taken into account, this is a reliable product that could work well in the home environment.
With a slightly more basic design than the one above, this model could be suitable for those who want a decent range of spray patterns from the jets that are easy to adjust. For those who are not a fan of the lighter color, check out the 75700
This model includes seven functions altogether which include both light and heavy pressure, as well as massage which is fantastic for soothing and relaxing muscles after a long day. Each of these settings can be adjusted by turning the face dial accordingly.
And whilst this can act as a handheld style head with its six foot hose, it’s also equipped with a arm mount to clip in so you can be hands free when you wash.
Unlike many products in the industry currently, this comes with a white finish that makes a nice change to a few metallic options and can serve as a good alternative, especially as they match the brighter colors many people tend to go for.
All in all, for something basic and inexpensive, this could be a smart choice.
Want something that reduces the flow rate? Then this could be ideal. It meets the industries WaterSense standards when it comes to conservation and it’s something the manufacturer claims can make saving of up to forty percent over some of its competitors. That’s a fair amount over the course of a year and could save you money. The actual flow rate listed is 1.5 GPM.
The material used in its construction is brass, and it’s finished in a Satin Nickel. If we’re being honest, the design is really basic and minimalist, so if you’re wanting something unique and stylish to go with other aspects of the bathroom, this may not be a good choice.
Additionally, four spray jets that won’t match some of the rain options in coverage, but for the price you will still get respectable power and performance.
