Delta In2ition Two-In-One

I like my current one: In2ition 6-in Brushed Nickel Showerhead with Hand Shower

  • Pause feature promotes water conservation
  • Features Touch-Clean spray holes for easy removal of hard-water build-up
  • Integrated 3-way diverter
  • Includes 72-in flexible hose for greater reach
  • Maximum water consumption 2.5 GPM at 80 PSI

You can have the outer ring only, the hand-held only or both. The hand held has 3 settings. Guests have remarked that they really liked it as well. It’s only $50, can be installed easily - which is good if you rent. - Ja’mie Lannister

Speakman Icon

If you have the water pressue and hot water heater capacity for these they are wonderful. No fancy settings or detachable parts - just perfect, soft streams of water in every angle. And they are solid, well-made, American designs that don’t clog. - greyspvce

When I remodeled my bathroom a few years ago, I specifically told the bathroom designer that I wanted a shower head with the hardest possible water flow. Without pausing, she skipped the big brands like Grohe and Kohler and marched me to the Speakman shower heads. I haven’t regretted my decision for a minute and all of my houseguests comment on what awesome water pressure I have in my shower. - Jen

Whedon Ultra Saver

Great for low water pressure or not. Super strong. There’s a joke in there about getting blown out of the shower, but *I’m* not gonna make it. - begetter

I hate showering with anything else. All the other ones are so wimpy by comparison. - vagrant8


This, plus a shower arm extender for us taller people, plus the pause mode is good for those of us who life in California. Everyone in the family actually likes this. - Dances with Peeps

I also have one of these. Wife is a big fan of the power massage setting. - carefree dude

Delta H2Okinetic

It is the best cause its cheap, strong spray even with low pressure water, and durable. Mine has lasted over 5 years. - cl0ugh

Takes our weak water pressure in our house and turns it into something better than most hotels. I can’t recommend this enough, and water saving to boot. - Tim Parsons
