The Seven Best High Pressure Shower Heads of 2021

Published on June 27, 2021

There is no better feeling than a hot shower after a long day of work. What really seals the deal is when the water pressure from the shower head is just right, high enough to help you feel clean and refreshed, but not too high of a pressure that doesn’t feel satisfactory. 

The question is, how do you find the right high pressure shower head? Right now there’s a lot of options on the market, from shower heads that administers water like a rain shower, to shower heads that can be detached and used as a handheld device. 

So what works best for you, the buyer? 

We’ve compiled a list of the seven best high pressure shower heads available right now, with different strengths that will hopefully help you enjoy the best showers that deliver maximum comfort.


If you’re in a hurry, here are our top 3 quick picks for the Best High Pressure Shower Heads of 2021


Criteria for Choosing the High Pressure Shower Heads

Design: Some of the high pressure shower heads on this list have wide, circular bases (for that rain shower feeling) while others are smaller, and one shower head even has a square shape. In terms of design a buyer must consider what sort of shower experience they want day after day. Do you want water running on you straight from above in a square configuration, or do you want your shower weather forecast to have a high chance of overhead rain showers? 

Reviews: A lot of the top high pressure shower heads have an incredible amount of reviews, but that doesn’t mean they’re all glowing five star ratings. Compare the ratio of five star ratings to one star and see which one outweighs the other. 

Is It Worth The Price? Most of the shower heads on the following list aren’t extravagant in terms of pricing. But does cheaper equate to durability? Is it worth spending more on a pricier shower head if it lasts longer? We will explore this.
