Best Shower Heads By Category


1. Best Dual Shower Head System (aka: Best Double Shower Head)

Best Dual Shower Head Combo All Metal Set by HammerHead Showers


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 System!

HammerHead Showers has turned its two All Metal Showerheads into something that everyone in the family can enjoy. It's no surprise that the Best Shower Head of 2021 is also the Best Dual Shower Head System on our list.

We consider this combination of shower heads to be the rarest find in the industry. That's because 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 uses a solid brass 3-way diverter which lets you go from running just the rainfall shower, to just the hand held, or running both at the same time.

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. This combination of features is what puts it at the top of our 2021 best shower heads list.

(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!)

2. Best High-Pressure Shower Head  

Best High Pressure Shower Head by NEMO Showerheads


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 2021...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. This function makes it one of the best shower heads for low water pressure.

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 2021. 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 2021, you'll get everything you need to install it!

3. Best Rain Shower Head 

 Best Rain Shower Head of 2021 HammerHead Showers 8 Inch Rainfall Showerhead


Relaxing, rejuvenating and luxurious; that's how we all feel when we have an amazing rainfall shower head. It embodies the hotel spa shower experience. 

And if you want this experience from the comfort of your home, then you need the Best Rain Shower Head of 2021...the HammerHead Showers All Metal 8 Inch Rainfall Shower Head.

Year after year, this shower head ends up on our list of the best shower heads. For us, it's our go-to for the Best Rain Shower Head category 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.

And with a large 8-inch spray face you can be confident that you'll get that wide coverage most only dream about. Delivering a 2.5 GPM flow rate, that 8-inch spray face won't just trickle out, it'll envelop you. 

Due to its large size, it's also perfect to use as a ceiling mount shower head, overhead shower head or just on a standard wall mount shower arm pipe.

Backed by HammerHead Showers Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer support, you have yourself one of the best shower heads ever. Say no more!

4. BestHand Held Shower Head with Hose 

HammerHead Showers Best Shower Head of 2021 Metal Hand Held ShowerHead 

Hand Held Shower Heads are our favorite type of 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.

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 with water volume.

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 ranks as one of the best shower heads of 2021. And we're not the only ones who agree. The team at Shower Maestro have also ranked this shower head as the best hand held shower head too!

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 2021.

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® 6500 and ERA® 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 turn any shower head into one of the best shower heads with filters! Why not pair it up with one of the best shower heads of 2021 from our list above!

  • 6. Best Bathroom Accessory - Handheld Bidet Sprayer

    Best Bidet Sprayer for your Toilet   

    Running out of toilet paper? Unless you start asking for paper grocery bags, not plastic ones, you'd better start looking for a quality bidet sprayer for your toilet.

    Bidet sprayers don't just come in hand when toilet paper is in short supply, but they are eco-friendly and way more hygienic. They are also very easy to install. Using a universal t-valve adapter, they attach a handheld bidet sprayer to your toilet fill valve without impacting the use of your toilet whatsoever.

    Oddly, however, there is a negative stigma in the USA around bidets. But let me ask you, don't you find it weird that we relieve our bowels and then smear....

    OK, I'm not gonna finish that thought.

    Anyway, since we have been getting such a surge of requests for hand held bidet sprayers, we decided that we would make our own. After all, it's not that much different than the high-quality all-metal shower heads that we have been making for years. 

    And we didn't just slap some hap-hazard bidet sprayer sets together. Of course not! We deep-dived into making this product a supreme booty cleaner and also a stout, durable product that you've all come to expect from HammerHead Showers.

    The handheld bidet sprayer and t-valve are both made from solid brass. And the hose is made using a stainless steel coil, PET explosion-proof inner-tube, outfitted with brass connectors. We did have to sacrifice on the holder in exchange for speed to market. So the holder is only made with a stainless steel toilet hook and ABS holder. 

    Invest in HammerHead Showers all metal bidet sprayer now, and reap the rewards for years to come. That means reduced waste, lower toilet paper bills and a cleaner backside! While this may not technically be one of the best shower heads of 2021, we couldn't resist adding it to this list!
