The 5 Best Waterfall Shower Heads

5. A Flow 2 Function

a flow rainfall shower headWe are going to start this list with a good and cheap waterfall shower head. The A Flow is a multi-setting shower head which offers you with both the waterfall and rainfall type of showers, so it basically means that you will hit 2 birds with one stone with the A-Flow. Changing between the modes is very easy. You just have to turn the center dial and select the way you want it to spray.

It has a very low price, but the quality is pretty good and it and will last you for years, depending on how long you use it. I wouldn’t recommend this for a luxurious bathroom because this does indeed look cheap even though it has a chrome finish back. If your bathroom equipment is more expensive, then you should probably look into better shower heads.

It’s 8 inches wide, which is a good size in my opinion, but some people disagree because they like wider shower heads that can cover their whole body and that is understandable. Don’t get me wrong, I still rate this shower head a 4.5/5 because you definitely get more than what you pay for.

Having showers with it will be a great experience in both the waterfall and the rain mode. Please keep in mind that if you have a low water pressure at your house, then this shower head will not work as it should. Most people blame the A-Flow because the ‘waterfall’ effect isn’t working as it should, but when we tested it it was perfectly fine. So that means that they had problems with their water pressure.

I would say that it’s a great shower head that you can grab for a cheap price. Most showerheads that have the waterfall effect are much more expensive so you should always keep that in mind.

4. Golden Vantage 63″

golden-vantage-63At number 4 of our best waterfall shower head list, we have the Golden Vantage 63″. This also is a multi-functional and multi-setting shower head which can be used by both kids and adults. This is a shower head which is on the high-end, so it’s a very luxurious shower head that does everything it has to do in a proper and quality way.

It has a lot of different settings you can choose from with the easy to use buttons on it.

 

  • Rainfall Mode – Water starts coming out of the top of the shower head, giving it a rain effect.
  • Waterfall Mode – Water gets splashed into your head softly, giving you a great relaxing experience
  • Handheld People – Older people are used to this type of shower heads, so Golden Vantage made sure to satisfy them by including the handheld option.
  • Tub Sprout – This is useful for washing your feet
  • They can function simultaneously

The item is made of high-quality stainless steel which is very durable and looks good at the same time. When people hear the word ‘steel’ they always think that the item is heavy, but this shower head is very light compared to others.

If you have money and love showering, then this will be the correct option for you. I know it’s a bit expensive but I would say it’s worth it. If you decide to purchase this, you should be careful with your water bill, because I am sure you will be using it at least twice a day.

Everything about it is good, but we have seen people complain about their customer service saying that they never pick up their phone, so if you’re someone who gets nervous by bad customer service maybe you shouldn’t go with them.

Another thing I would like to mention is that if you decide to purchase this waterfall shower head, you will need to hire a plumber to install it for you because this kind of waterfall shower head is harder to install than the normal ones.

3. Eyekepper Shower Head

eyekeeper waterfall shower headWe have another affordable waterfall shower head at number 3 on our list. The Eyekepper is made of high-quality stainless steel and has everything that you would need from a waterfall shower head. It has a 8-inch diameter, which is the perfect size for average people. If you are above 300lbs you should consider buying a larger one because a 8-inch plate won’t be suitable for you.

The plate from which the water comes out is extremely slim and has a polished chrome finish which makes it look very high quality and beautiful.

The Eyekepper waterfall shower head looks and feels very expensive, so it means that it will fit all every type of bathroom design and size without a problem.

Most people chose this shower head because it’s very easy to install and it comes with a Teflon tape included, plus it’s very cheap. However I would like to mention that the waterfall effect isn’t too good on this shower head, but it is good for the price and if you are on a limited budget then you should go for this one or the #5 product on this list. You will also need to buy an extension arm because it doesn’t come with one. You can find cheap extension arms by looking on the internet or grabbing one from your local store.

2. AKDY 9″ Rectangular

akdy-9inchThis is one of my favorite shower heads that I’ve reviewed on this website. I love it because it is multi-functional and it’s not overpriced like most of the shower heads that are low quality.

What I like about the Akdy shower head is that it has 4 really good modes which are the rainfall, the waterfall and Hydrating Jet. You’ve probably never heard about the last one before, and you’re probably wondering what it is. Well, it’s normal that you haven’t heard about it because AKDY is one of the few that makes this type of shower heads. Hydrating Jet will spray water that looks similar to airplane trails and I would say that it’s a great massager after a long day of work.

The AKDY has an adjustable overhead fixture, which is very useful if you have a family. Whoever enters the shower can adjust the head based on their needs without having to take it out or do anything else. You just have to use your hand to position it as you like and you’re good to go.

The shower head has 118 nozzles and 6 jets. They are very strong and can offer you a great water pressure if you want to. They’re very The Jet-Spraying Settingeasy to clean and because of the good material the head won’t get rusty or damaged from the water. You can even use the handheld shower head to wash your bathroom
with ease, because as I mentioned above it has very high pressure.

We noticed that on the rainfall mode the pressure of the water drops a bit, but this isn’t something to worry about since it still gets the job done, and I would say that the drop in water pressure isn’t that noticeable, but I still wanted to mention it.

You can install the AKDY shower head by yourself because it’s a very easy task. You don’t need any special equipment to do so. If this is the first time you install a shower head then you will need to get some extra tape if you fail to install it the first time you try. AKDY includes a small amount of tape but it isn’t enough if you have no experience in installing shower heads.

1.DreamSpa Ultra-Luxury 9″

dreamspaTo finish off our best waterfall shower head list we are going to place the DreamSpa Shower head at number one. This is a great showerhead which has been in the market for a long time and it has received nothing but good reviews and customer satisfaction.

It’s a pretty luxurious shower head that will bring a new look to your bathroom, especially if you have a huge bathroom. This waterfall shower head comes in 2 versions, the wand can be an oval square or a normal square. The waterfall effect can be felt more on the oval one, so if you’re after that you should definitely purchase the oval version.

Not many shower head manufacturers offer all components, but Dreamspa does in most of its products. This one comes with the angle-adjustable overhead bracket, the stainless steel shower hose, jets etc, so if you’re moving into a new house and don’t have any of the components left over from your old shower head then buying this product will save you a lot of time and money.

What I like most about the DreamSpa is the button flow control, it makes everything much easier. You can use it both as an overhead shower head and as a hand-held shower head by just pushing the button.

This is one of the best shower heads in the market at the moment as far as we’ve analyzed, and we couldn’t find anything that is wrong with it. It looks good, it’s made out of high-quality material, is affordable, it basically has everything you need at a cheap price, so does that make it perfect? Well almost. You can’t adjust it based on your needs like the AKDY shower head, so while that is not a big problem, it still can be uncomfortable to some people.

How To Get The Best Waterfall Shower Head

When looking to buy the best waterfall shower head for your bathroom, you should also consider the price and the other functionalities that the shower head has. You may have noticed that there are almost no shower heads that only offer the waterfall feature and that most of them are multi-functioned. Making this list trying to find the best ones was pretty hard, but I guess we did a good job! Now let’s talk about what you should look for in a waterfall shower head before you purchase.

  • Material

Always make sure that the shower head is made from quality material that won’t break anytime soon. I would recommend stainless steel, but if you can find a high-quality plastic one that might work too. Stainless steel waterfall shower heads are noticeably more expensive but they are worth it because you get a longer-lasting product.

  • Price

If you are looking solely for a waterfall shower head then the prices are not very high, but as I mentioned above most of them come in a multi-setting shower head so they usually cost a lot. Before making a purchase make sure to choose one that doesn’t have too many useless features such as speakers, Bluetooth etc.

  • Running Costs

I have to warn you that most waterfall shower heads use a lot of water to give you the waterfall effect, and that leads to a lot of water going to waste. When you decide to buy one, always make sure you get one that does not waste too much water for no reason, and make sure it fits your country’s standards.

  • Size

When purchasing a waterfall shower head you should always measure how much space you have in your bathroom and buy your shower head according to that. I am sure you don’t want to purchase a huge one and then realize that it doesn’t fit in.

Benefits Of Waterfall Shower Heads

Having the best waterfall shower head has a lot of benefits, especially if you live with your family and have kids.This is one of the best waterfall shower head available on the market.

Kids enjoy the waterfall effect because it’s very entertaining to them. If you have kids you probably know that making up their mind to take a shower is a pretty hard task, but installing something fun in your bathroom such as the waterfall shower head can make it a much more fun experience for them.

It’s unique. Not many people have that kind of shower in their houses, some of them don’t even know that this type of shower heads exists, so you can use that to your advantage and impress your guests when they come over.

They’re also extremely relaxing, so if you are someone that has a hard job and gets tired often then the only solution for you will be a waterfall shower head or a jacuzzi. A jacuzzi is very expensive so going with a waterfall shower can be a better idea.

Conclusion

So now that you know all the pros and cons of the best waterfall shower heads you can make your purchase. If you are still not sure which one to buy, you can personally contact me and I will do my best to find a shower head that will match all your needs.
