Listed below, you’ll find detailed overviews of some of our favorite models, alongside the most popular and best sellers. Find out which have the settings you need for the ultimate relaxation and comfort.
A rainshower head that has a reasonably large diameter, measuring eight inches for solid water coverage.
A couple things worth noting about this models features include the self pressurizing technology that is designed to bring more power through the nozzles for a more thorough wash, and the two functions built in that offer a concentrated setting, and the standard rainfall.
Even with the bigger head, and more nozzles, you’re only looking at a maximum flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute, which isn’t bad at all.
Top that all off with a stylish, chrome design and this could be a great addition to any modern bathroom.
However, don’t expect to find this as a low budget option. This style tends to be more expensive than more traditional options and with good reason. The general feeling we found in our research from consumer feedback around the web was positive, with several shops showing good ratings.
However, don’t rely on feedback alone, you should always be looking at the features, pricing, and suitability to your own needs before you make any quick decisions.
Moen 26112srn Magnetix
This is a handheld variant which offers a great piece of technology that will secure it in place magnetically. A safer, more sensible, and reliable approach to docking than the standard clip ins.
But what of its specifications? Well, you get a five inch in diameter head, that will give a good range of pressure options to choose from. In total you have six differing spray settings.
What’s more, this particular model is WaterSense certified, meaning the 2.0 gallons per minute flow rate is Eco-friendly. Not all products fall into this category, so this is one way it sets itself apart from many of its competitors.
But it’s not just the shower head you should know about. With this package you also get a magnetic bracket, and a reasonably long sixty inch hose to give quite a bit of freedom of movement once taken from its dock.
Finished with brushed nickel, and to give readers an idea of the sort of space required, the measurements are as follows: 6 inches by 7 inches by 14 inches.
Ultimately, this could be a smart investment for a shower and bath combo. It’s inexpensive, and has plenty of good feedback from customers offering their views and experience using it.
The 6300EP is labelled as an ECO performance option due to its impressive 1.75 gallons per minute usage. Which will make plenty of water savings in the household. You may have already guessed that this matches the EPA standards as well.
It has a reflective chrome finish looks great, and will match many different themes and colors, and will offer a two and a half diameter spray.
However, there are some downsides that come with low flow options, among those is the lack of performance settings. It comes as a single function and really is as basic as bathroom fixtures come.
If you’re looking for an affordable option that gets the job done, this could be a good match. But if you want something with powerful massage settings and larger coverage, you may be better off looking at other products.
The T5502 is equipped with a modern lever handle that takes user friendliness up a notch or two. The inclusion of such a feature will make light work of changing the water flow.
Additionally, you can expect decent coverage thanks to the seven inch diameter head that operates on a full spray function.
Finished in the a common, but reliable chrome that looks great, and is easy to clean, and it’s equipped to work with the menthol pressure-balancing valve. Just a heads up that the valve will need to be purchased separately at further cost, the valve in question should be the 2570, but be sure to check this.
One downside is that it isn’t adjustable. Fixed set ups can be frustrating at times, but with enough water coverage, there should be enough to overcome this.
Product dimensions are listed as 13.1 inches by 9.1 inches by 5.5 inches, so be sure to measure your current space and plan ahead to ensure you’re going to have enough standing room.
The 26017 is a popular option from the Halo collection. Includes a beautiful chrome design that has that shiny, reflective, and modern feel. Something about this style just feels cleaner.
But what of the features? Well, you can expect up to 2.5 gallons per minute in the flow rate, and is built to be wall mounted. A nine inch diameter provides good coverage which combined with the three settings will allow you to have total control over a setting you feel most comfortable in.
It measures 3 inches by 3 inches by 4 inches and is quite lightweight with a fairly straightforward installation.
Consumer feedback is mostly positive, with many commenting on the effectiveness of the spray. A good sign, and looking at the price tag, there is some value for money to be found here, when you compare with several of it competitors.
Other reviewed products
In your search, you will come across plenty of different products ranges from this brand. But to get you up to speed, you have three main styles, then ranges within those styles.
Included in the modern style are Align, 90 degree, Arris, Danika, Divine, Fina, Icon, and genta. Then you have the transitional set which includes Attract, Adler, Felicity, Ignite, Engage, Varese, and Velocity. Then finally, the traditional products.

The sheer amount of choice here is enough to give you a headache. But it can also serve as a reminder to not go rushing in picking a product until you’re entirely satisfied with its capabilities and functionality.
Because this brand offers so much variety, it can become somewhat difficult to pick one from many. So you, the consumer, needs to decide and know several things before you spend any money. Some of these are listed below.
Current set up – Does you current shower operate as a bath combo? If so you should be looking at potentially getting a handheld option. There is plenty of these available, but one we recommend is the 26112srn thanks to its unique magnetic docking system. Its convenient, and has some great settings.
Flow rate – Are you wary of the water savings that can be made by going for something that is designed to be more efficient? There are several models that are designed to limit water wastage, not many more so than the 6300EP which hasa great 1.75 gallons per minute flow rate. If you’re concerned about the environment and want to do your part, this could be a great match.
Coverage – The amount of space water sprays cover can be very important. If moving around the shower to hit different areas of your body doesn’t appeal to you, then consider getting something with a better diameter. One option we suggest is the 26017 which looks great and has a nice wide diameter.
Budget – You’re going to come across models suitable for a whole range of budget levels whilst you search. But I recommend you set yourself a budget before you start as it will help prevent you from paying over the odds, and allow you to start looking for products that offers the best value for money.
Finishes – Deciding what style finish you enjoy can be difficult. And it’s hard for us to tell you what to pick simply because different people will have different individual design tastes. However, the main finishes you will come across are Brushed Nickel, Chrome, Bronze, and Polished Nickel.
