There is no worse feeling than being half way through your daily washing machine then having to switch from taking a shower to taking a bath thanks to a faulty shower head. Not quite sure what went wrong, but I suspect it’s a bit clogged up after continuous use over the last decade or so. Even after a bit of cleaning and maintenance I couldn’t get it working again, so I’ve decided to splash out on getting a new one.

And if i’m going shopping, I want to give myself the best chance of it not happening again, so I will be looking for something of a high standard that has great water coverage. I do like the look of those rainfall shower heads, they seem to cover the most area at least, i’m not too sure about functionality, but that’s something I have been looking into in my spare time.

One of the sites I came across in my research to finding a great shower head is Shower HQ. They offer reviews and ratings based on performance, price, and what customers are saying about individual products. It’s given me a push in the right direction, which is always appreciated.

The Thunderhead looks promising, as does one of the Delta models. Both seem to offer a great set of specs that will surely enhance the showering experience. But then again, there are a few others I haven’t looked at that’s putting me off making the final decision.

Whatever one I go with, the surface area of overall water coverage has to be high, so I will want something with a larger than average diameter, and potentially something with around 2.5 gallons per minute flow rate.

The other thing i’m finding difficult is finding a good finish for my current set up. Currently, my bathroom tiles are white with floral patterns along the top, and there is a lighter shade of blue above them keeping to a bright theme. I am confused as to whether to go for a shower head renowned for its durability, or something that fits the design brief.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much in the way for both from what I’ve seen in the current market. And whilst these products are reasonably inexpensive, I’d rather get it right first time to save me having to go through the trouble of replacing, and sending back the old ones.

Rant over, I’ll let you know, and hopefully provide pictures when I’ve chosen one. I may be some time. Any suggestions, send them to me 🙂
