1. Best Shower Head of 2019 (aka: Best Hand Held Shower Head)

HammerHead Showers Best Shower Head of 2019 Metal Hand Held ShowerHead 

 

Hand Held Shower Heads are our favorite shower head because of their versatility. If you choose the right one, you can have all the benefits of a fixed shower head with all the flexibility of having a detachable shower head with hose. It's no surprise that the Best Shower Head of 2019 is also the Best Hand Held Shower Head on our list.

Coming in at #1, the ALL Metal Hand Held Shower Head Set by HammerHead Showers is far and away the Best Shower Head of 2019. 

Truly an industry disruptor, HammerHead Showers is leading the way in solid metal shower heads and accessories, replacing cheap plastic parts that break and leak with high quality, durable metals like 304 stainless steel and brass.

Here's the Material Breakdown:

  • Hand Shower: Made from 304 stainless steel
  • Shower Head Holder: Made from solid brass
  • Shower Hose: Made from 304 stainless steel with brass connectors.

 

You'd be hard-pressed to find another indestructible Hand Held Shower Head Set like this.

You can trust that it's BUILT to LAST!

While quality of materials is what sets HammerHead Showers apart, this shower head also has a really nice flow of water. Putting out the industry maximum of 2.5 Gallon Per Minute (GPM) flow rate, you won't be lacking in the pressure department.

The 4-inch wide showerhead face features dozens of silicone spray nozzles that sculpt large rain droplet to give you an enveloping stream of water. 

It's really a nice balance of pressure and coverage.

Equipped with an extra-long 72" inch shower hose, you'll be able to reach every square inch of your bathtub with your hand held.

And the 304 stainless steel material is made for an extremely durable and flexible shower hose. Right out of the box it will hang freely directly and you'll have total control over the hose.

Backed by HammerHead Showers Limited Lifetime Warranty, this All Metal Handheld Shower Head Set comes in # 1 on our list of the Best Shower Head of 2019.

2. Best High-Pressure Shower Head 

 

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

Whether you're struggling with low pressure in your house or are just addicted to a powerful shower, the right High-Pressure Shower Head makes all the difference. 

And the competition is not even close, the NEMO Shower Head Set is the best high-pressure shower head of 2019...possibly of all time!

It all starts with the unique design of NEMO's Ionic Spray Face. With hundreds of laser-cut holes on the main face of the shower head, the water is pressurized inside the head before being released into a powerful stream that releases negative ions.

The flow is so strong that it actually creates some wind which almost makes it feel like standing next to a waterfall. In Korea, where this shower head is made, this Ionic effect is said to have natural healing benefits, such as stress relief.

In addition to the Ionic Spray, there are 3 other spray settings which include a Wide Rainfall Spray, Massage Spray, and Mist Spray. 

To cycle through the spray functions, you simply rotate the shower head like the head of an owl. While the other settings are solid, the Ionic High-Pressure Spray is really what makes this the Best High-Pressure Shower Head of 2019. And with a 2.5 Gallon Per Minute flow rate, you're sure to get the most water output from this shower head.

In the past, the NEMO shower head was only available as a stand-alone sprayer. But this past year, The Shower Head Store partnered with NEMO to add a shower head holder bracket and shower hose coil, making this a true handheld shower head set. 

So buy with confidence knowing that when you buy the Best High-Pressure Shower Head of 2019, you'll get everything you need to install it!

Year after year, this showerhead cleans up this category for the Best Rain Shower Head. For us, it's our go-to because it seamlessly combines material quality and performance.

Beautifully crafted from solid metal, you have a finely built shower head that will make any shower sparkle.

4. Best Dual Shower Head Combo (aka: Best Double Shower Head)

Best Dual Shower Head Combo Moen Magnetix Double Showerhead with Magnetix 

What do you get when you mix one of the Best Hand Held Shower Heads with one of the Best Rain Shower Heads? The HammerHead Showers All Metal Dual Shower Head Set! Easily topping our chart for the Best Dual Shower Head of 2019, HammerHead Showers has turned its two All Metal Showerheads into something that everyone in the family can enjoy.

We consider this combination of shower heads to be the rarest find in the industry. That's because pretty much every component is made from metal. Seriously, try and find another All Metal Double Shower Head like this. You'll keep on coming back to this one. HammerHead Showers actually uses a 3-Way Diverter by Delta Faucet which lets you go from running just the rainfall shower, to just the hand held, or running both at the same time. But fret not, the Diverter body and threads are made from Solid Brass.

The only component that is plastic is the lever, but it is pretty stout all around and is the best external shower arm diverter for this application. At 8 inches wide, the rainfall shower head gives you a nice amount of coverage, true to a rain shower head.  While the 4-inch wide hand shower gives you more of a concentrated flow. 

The 72-inch long hose is about 12 inches longer than the industry standard, so you get extra reach for those of you with larger showers, looking to wash your dog in the tub, or just some more slack in general. And it's made from a very flexible 304 Stainless Steel, so you can easily move the spray wand all around the shower. 

This is honestly a perfect shower head for larger families who have unique needs in the shower. Easy to use, built well and simply enjoyable. 

(Please note, this combination shower head set ships in three separate parts and must be assembled. Follow installation video instructions below and you'll have the highest-quality dual shower head up and running in less than 30 minutes!)

5. Best Filtered Shower Head

 

Best Shower Head Filter Crystal Quest Inline Filtered Showerhead  

Most of the talk around shower heads has to do with performance and features. But filtering your shower head water should be right up there. After all, the right filtered shower head can make the difference between dry or silky skin and hair. 

This year at The Shower Head Store we partnered with a lesser known, but highly acclaimed filtration manufacturer, Crystal Quest. And the Inline Shower Head Filter cleans up this category for the Best Filtered Shower Head of 2019.

Crystal Quest has been making some of the highest end filtration units for the past 25 years right here in the USA! You probably haven't heard of their shower head filters because they mostly focus on larger filtration units. Heck, they have served American Airlines, Boeing and NASA! 

What makes¬†this inline shower head filter¬†unique is their state-of-the-art filtration media. First, the water is filtered through an ERA¬ģ 6500 and ERA¬ģ 9500 to remove chlorine and enhance the ph balance of the water. Finally, the water passes through a Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon which removes contaminants.

The filtration media is so effective that it removes chlorine, chloramines, VOC's, THM's, pesticides, sulfur, heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide ("rotten egg" odor), iron oxides ("rust water"), dirt, sediment, and other odors.

The shower filter cartridge is also reversible so you get double the life out of it before having to buy a replacement cartridge. 

Each filter by Crystal Quest is certified by the NSF and the Water Quality Association, so you can be confident that this shower head filter actually works.

And since this is an inline filter with universal attachments, that means that you can use any shower head you want with it! Why not pair it up with one of the best shower heads of 2019 from our list above!

Features

Long-Lasting Filter: Filter is effective for 1-Year. With a reversible and replaceable cartridge, you'll get twice the time out of this shower head filter than the standard filtered shower head cartridges. (Cartridge Model # SLC)

3-Stage Filtration: Starting with the ERA-6500 and ERA-9500 media for de-chlorination and to balance the pH, the water passes through a coconut shell granular activated carbon (GA) which reduces contaminants. 

NSF & Water Quality Association Certified:The NSF is one of the most respected independent product testing organizations to ensure that manufacturers meet strict standards imposed by NSF for the safety and health of consumers.

Includes:Inline Shower Head Filter (Shower Head, Shower Arm, and Flange Sold Separately.)
