The Top Rated Showerheads in India9 min read


A showerhead is a perforated nozzle that showers water on a bather.

Showerhead types

Fixed: The most affordable and primary option for the shower is a fixed shower head. Although this fixed shower head can only spray in a small area, these plumbing fittings are connected to an outwardly extending shower arm, and the direction of the spray can typically be altered. You can select from various spray patterns on some fixed shower heads’ multi-function sprayers. However, not all fixed shower heads come with this feature as standard.

Hand-held: When not in use, a hand-held showerhead attached to a long hose rests in a cradle. However, handheld showerheads can be used much more often when removed from the cradle for washing children, bathing dogs, and cleaning the tub. Hose lengths for hand-held showerheads come in a variety of sizes. They must be at least 84″ long to be ADA compliant. The hose is more valuable the longer it is. Even so, it can obstruct the tub. Hoses between 60″ and 72″ work nicely for the typical home.

Water saving: One GPM is all a water-saving showerhead needs to operate. If you want to save on water and gas (or electricity) usage, then a water-saving showerhead might be right for you. Many of the water-saving types of showerheads are aerated and then boosted to feel like they dispense more water. This type of water-saving showerhead also works great in low water pressure conditions because it makes it feel like you have more water pressure than you do.

Massage or spray pattern: Many spray patterns are available in massage-type showerheads. Pulse, rain, jet, aeration, and most are just a few. Not all spraying techniques are as practical or efficient as others. We have seen showerheads with eight unique spray patterns and as little as one claiming it was a massage showerhead.

Rain: Rain showerheads are often overhead styles, meaning you need to be able to be directly under them for best results. Rain-style shower heads distribute water lightly and evenly from above, with an oversized chair for wide water distribution. Rain showerheads work best in conditions with plenty of water pressure to help the showerhead deliver water effectively.

Dual (fixed and handheld): These showerheads come in various shapes and sizes, and some are even incorporated so that it appears as though there is just one shower head, but the inner component can be pulled out and used as a wand. With dual showerheads, everything is included, and you can choose from various spray patterns and massage settings.

Body sprayers: Body sprays are available in inevitable bespoke showers. They require a particular type of shower valve and spray body installed inside the wall, usually done in the bathroom’s construction or remodeling phase. These can operate independently or with the shower head. If you plan to add these to your shower, plan for complications.

Slide bar: A sliding bar shower fixture on the shower wall makes it simple to change the showerhead’s height. This type of showerhead can work well when you might need to customize the showerhead size for different family members. They are also handy for keeping the water level low to avoid getting your hair wet.

How to clean a shower head?

Follow these detailed directions on how to clean a shower head to finish the task quickly:

  1.  Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar until it is approximately half full. Use gallon-sized bags for shower heads and quart-sized bags for faucets. According to Peterson, “Vinegar is good to use since it is strong enough to dissolve whatever remains in mind.” 
  2. Try lemon juice or an over-the-counter solution to remove limescale and shower scum if you use something other than vinegar instead.
  3. Wrap the vinegar-filled bag over the shower head or faucet, so the vinegar covers any area where the water exits. 
  4. Put a rubber band around the bag, fasten it to the shower head or faucet, and use that to hold it.
  5.  Allow the vinegar to work through calcium or hard water deposits for about one hour. Learn how to clean your home’s dirtiest items while you wait.
  6. When the hour is up, clean the bag and use a toothbrush to remove any residual buildup on the showerhead or faucet.
  7. Rinse by running the shower for a few minutes with hot water.

How to choose a shower head?

In addition to being a quick and effective way to clean up in the morning before leaving for the day, showers are also more space-and cost-efficient than bathtubs. It can relax as water falls from overhead or massage aching muscles with firm, consistent water pressure.

The shower head can significantly influence your shower experience. This shower component attaches to the arm and delivers water through multiple spray holes. Shower head mounting location, spray pattern, and type significantly impact the spray’s direction, and water pressure affects your body.

Buying guide for shower heads

Filter: The incoming water in many cities and towns across the nation may have high levels of minerals, chlorine, and other impurities that can dry up your skin and hair. It is usually advised to install a whole-home water softener or water filtration system. However, this isn’t always an option. For example, those who rent condos or apartments typically do not have access to the main water line and may have many water lines entering the unit. By spending money on a shower head with a built-in filter to remove the impurities before the water exits the shower head, you can solve this problem reasonably quickly and resume enjoying your showers without worrying about harming your skin and hair.

Spray Pattern: While choosing a filtered shower head is frequently motivated by necessity, picking a shower head’s spray pattern is typically driven by preference. When standing in the shower, only you know how you prefer the water to feel. Full-panel shower items can massage your entire body with several sprayers that can be adjusted to target all the appropriate locations after a hard day at work. Standard options include rainfall, massage, and jet spray patterns. Shower heads with massage and jet settings can offer consumers a modest hydrotherapy experience, whereas an overhead rainfall spray is only intended for peaceful, silent relaxation.

Mount: The shower head mount is a crucial component to consider when selecting a new shower head. In most showers, the top of one wall has an inclined shower arm that extends, letting the showerhead’s downward spray into the enclosure. Although rainfall shower heads should be used with horizontal shower arms extending over the shower rather than being tilted down from the side, these can be used with fixed, handheld, dual, or even fixed shower heads. Another choice that resembles an overhead horizontal shower arm is a shower head positioned on the ceiling. The water falls straight down thanks to a connection between the rainfall shower head and a shower arm on the top. If you want a ceiling-mounted shower head, however, you will need to account for the expense of having the plumbing added if it doesn’t already exist for this sort of shower head.
