1. Best Shower Head of 2018

HammerHead Showers Best Shower Head of 2018

HammerHead Showers Hand Held Shower Head Set takes the cake for the Best Shower Head of 2018 because of its sleek design, high performance and solid metal construction. 

The HammerHead Handshower Set is truly solid metal, from the Showerhead to the Hose to the Holder Bracket. Extremely hard to come by, this is one of the first 100% Solid Metal Hand Held Shower Heads with Hose sets on the market. 

When it comes to the Flow, the HammerHead Shower Head offers a one function, Rain Shower style flow. With a 2.5 GPM Flow Rate, you'll get the maximum water flow rate, giving you a nice balance of coverage and pressure. 

Handheld Showerheads are often high on our list of the Best Shower Heads because of their flexibility, ease of use and performance. To enhance these qualities, the HammerHead Handshower Set comes equipped with a 72" long flexible metal Shower Hose. 

The extra long Hose and flexibility of the metal material makes it super easy to remove from the dock and wash soap from your body, rinse shampoo from your hair or simply just clean the shower.

Last but certainly not least, there's the Shower Holder Bracket. This is often the part that is most prone to breaking, since most manufacturers make it from plastic.  

But, HammerHead Showers has built a one-of-a-kind Shower Holder out of 100% Solid Brass. This piece is heavy duty, and is likely to last you a lifetime.

With such a sleek design, this high performance and extremely durable Hand Held Shower Head Set easily gets the # 1 Rank on our list of the Best Shower Heads of 2018.

2. Best High Pressure Shower Head

 

NEMO Best Shower Head high Pressure with Hose Set Hand Held Showerhead

The NEMO Hand Held Shower Head will change the way you experience showering forever! Due to its extremely high pressure, it's become one of the best selling shower heads in Korea and featured on QVC around the world. 

Now it's available in the USA, with The Shower Head Store as one of the exclusive distributors of this amazing product.

We've done thorough testing of our top rated high pressure shower heads, and the NEMO is absolutely shredding the competition. So, if you are looking to increase the low water pressure in your shower, the NEMO Hand Shower is the best option.

 

What makes the NEMO the best high pressure shower head?

It all comes down to the unique spray face that creates an Ionic Spray. The face of each shower head is made using an extremely thin but durable alloy metal which then is laser cut with super tiny holes.

These laser cut holes squeeze the water of the spray face and create pressure inside of the shower head. That means you'll benefit from this pressure increasing effect even if you have low household water pressure.

For some extra options, you'll find 3 additional spray settings including a Wide Rainfall Spray, Massage Spray and Mist Spray.

What's cool about the NEMO Shower Head is you can adjust the spray settings by rotating the showerhead 90 degrees. It's like the owl of the shower head industry!

While the other settings are solid, none really compare to the Ionic High Pressure Spray.

But just a heads up, this is the hand shower only. So make sure you grab a shower hose and holder bracket if you don't already have a hand held shower head set installed.
