Recommend me a good shower head


Well, my current shower head has never been really impressive, not too mention its starting leaking lately as some of the old plastic is getting brittle I guess.

So im looking to replace it. Heres my problem: I have a combination of low water flow and low water pressure.

Now I know its possible to get a decent shower even in these conditions, we have another building with a shower in it that has the same problems, but whatever showerhead my aunts ex put in that thing is great. Problem is, I have no way of asking him what kind it is.

I know they make shower heads designed for people in my situation, I just cant seem to find any that even advertise such a thing. The only flow related advertisement I see is compliance with the mandated 2.5gpm, I dont think I could 2.5gpm if my life depended on it in this place.

So, please help me choose one, Im completely ok with ordering one online so if thats the only one you know of, go for it.

Thanks in advance,
Zach

Try a Niagra n2912 nice needle spray and uses only 1.2 GPM. I got one because of the Calif water shortage and it works pretty well

Thanks for the recommendation, Ill keep in mind, but it brought up something I forgot to add.

Id like it to have a detachable head with the hose. As Im getting older its not an easy to bring the hard to reach places up to the shower head much easier to bring the shower head to the places.
