An Overview On Rain Showerheads

When you’re looking for new ways to relax after a long day, taking a warm bath is often at the top of the suggestion list. Sinking into a bubble bath with a book or a glass of wine can take your stress level down a few notches, but you can enjoy the same benefits with a great shower.

What takes a shower from good to great? It’s all in the nozzle, baby. The showerhead that came with your bathroom gets the job done, but a rain shower head transports you to your own personal waterfall.

The way you install your shower head will affect how your “rainfall” feels. “If your existing shower head is already in the ceiling, you’re halfway to happiness!” says Vicki Liston, a home improvement expert and host of “On The Fly…DIY,” an award-winning show with fun tutorials. “Most of us have a wall-mounted shower head to contend with and we have to make compromises.” Liston recommends purchasing a smaller shower head (6″ to 8″) for wall-mounted scenarios. If you have ample water pressure, you can get away with a 10″ shower head.

“If your water pressure is just ‘ok,’ choosing a small 6″ head will amp up the pressure inside the unit and force water out at a higher rate,” adds Liston.  “If you have good to excellent pressure, venture higher into the 8″ to 10″ heads.”

When you’re choosing your ideal rainfall showerhead, take a look at its installation instructions, water flow rate and pressure levels, number of settings and cleaning instructions. For a more detailed look at choosing rain showerheads, take a look at our Tips & Advice.

DWYM Fun Fact

You probably take a shower or bath almost every day of the week, but daily bathing wasn’t popular for most of human history.

The Romans bathed regularly in their famous bathhouses, but frequent bathing fell out of favor after the fall of the Roman Empire. The rise of Christianity brought in a new age where good hygiene was a sign of vanity and a religious taboo. Mass casualties from the Black Death in the 14th century showed people that cleanliness was a lifesaving habit.

Inventor William Feetham was granted the first patent for a shower in 1767, but it relied on an exhausting hand pump that made daily showering difficult. Our modern showers first made their appearance around 1850 after the invention of indoor plumbing.

Daily showering is considered a must today, and we’ve come full circle with rain showerheads. Ancient tribal people bathed underneath waterfalls when they had the chance, but modern rain showerheads are considered luxury bathroom accessories.

The Rain Showerhead Buying Guide

  • Home improvement expert Liston recommends choosing a metal rain shower head instead of a plastic option. “Plastic may be cheaper, but you get what you pay for,” she says. “Plastic cracks and leaks much quicker and it can harbor gross bacteria.”
  • Look at the shower head’s installation instructions before you buy. Most of them install in minutes without any tools.  Simple installation means you won’t need to call a plumber to enjoy your new showerhead, and that will save you some serious cash.
  • You’ll also want to make sure that your new rain shower head fits your plumbing connections. Some showerheads fit most standard U.S. plumbing connections, but you should still look up the specs on your shower head connector to double-check.
  • Think about the type of shower experience you’re looking for when you hunt for rain showerheads. Do you want to wash your hair under jets that mimic a waterfall? Look for a showerhead that hangs directly above you for that outdoorsy waterfall vibe. Do you want to reach every nook and cranny with your rain shower head? A shower head with an overhead spout and a handheld accessory provides a more complete clean.
  • Each showerhead lists a “flow rate.” This number tells you how many gallons per minute your shower head will pump out. Think about your current water pressure situation when you’re looking at this number.
  • A high-pressure flow differentiates rain shower heads from standard showerheads. However, using all of that extra H2O isn’t great for the environment (or your water bill). Some showerheads come with a built-in flow restrictor, so you can reduce the amount of water you use during most showers and save the high-pressure settings for special occasions.
  • Take a look at the number of jets on your dream shower head. More jets equals more pressure and a more realistic rainfall experience.
  • Most rainfall showerheads offer a number of custom settings for a different vibe every time. Compare the number of options each showerhead offers before you buy. Some offer settings like rain, aeration and high-pressure waterfall. Others might only have one setting, but that’s perfect for someone who wants the high-pressure rainfall effect without extra bells and whistles.
  • Your showerhead will last longer and work more efficiently if you clean it regularly. Make sure your choice has easy-to-clean jets. You can detach the nozzles from the base for easy cleaning with some models.
  • To prevent lime and soap scum buildup on other showerheads, pour about six tablespoons of salt down the back of the showerhead. Follow that with a half-cup of a hot water and vinegar mixture, then place the showerhead (holes down) in the rest of the water and vinegar solution. Swish it around for about a minute. After that, re-install the showerhead and let it run (with only hot water) for about 15 minutes. Your showerhead will be as clean as the day you opened the box.
