What’s Good?

It’s massive

Measuring 9.375 inches across, the Hansgrohe 27474001 is about the size of a basketball. Big enough to make it feel like you’re caught in a deluge of rain. Whether you want it right overhead or on a slight angle, this luxury rain shower head is sure to hit the spot and soak you through and through, giving you the shower experience you’ve always dreamed of.


Chrome or brushed nickel finish

This shower head comes in two gorgeous finishes: chrome and brushed nickel. Both are beautiful to look at and will fit perfectly with whatever style of bathroom you have. The chrome would look great in a modern or contemporary style bathroom, while the brushed nickel is ideal for a more traditional, classic type.


Brushed Nickel

180 clog-free nozzles

The Hansgrohe 27474001 has a whopping 180 nozzles that pour down like you’ve never felt before.

You may be thinking, “but that’s going to be a pain to clean.” Think again. The nozzles are made from soft silicon to make cleaning a breeze. All you have to do is rub them with your hand and the calcium and lime deposits flake right off, giving you a perfectly balanced shower with all 180 nozzles, every time.


AirPower technology

The Hansgrohe 27474001 features AirPower technology, making it feel like a much more intense flow than it actually is. This helps to reduce your water consumption and save you money. I’ll let the folks at Hansgrohe explain how it works:

The principle is simple: an ample supply of air is sucked in via the spray disc of your AirPower shower. The incoming water is infused with this air. Around three liters of air are transferred to one liter of water. Valuable water is thus used efficiently.

Enriched with air to the extent that the droplets become plumper, lighter and softer. You will notice the effects immediately on your skin: the sparkling AirPower rain shower envelops your body and creates a wonderful sense of well-being. Also, you can indulge yourself in a massage with the multi-jet models: the powerful stream has a noticeably relaxing effect. In addition to more shower fun, your water demand will also be reduced.

Solid metal construction

To ensure your investment lasts a long, long time the Hansgrohe 27474001 is made of solid metal. The chrome or brushed nickel plated finish is coupled with a solid brass inner giving it the feel of unmatched quality. It looks and feels like you’re in a luxury spa every time you take a shower, giving you a sense of relaxation and comfort. Knowing that your shower head isn’t made from cheap plastic will make you wonder why you didn’t make the switch sooner.

Quality German engineering

Nothing says luxury quality like German engineering. BMW, Mercedes, Hugo Boss and now Hansgrohe. If you want a shower head that not only looks and performs great but is such high quality that they offer a lifetime warranty, then get yourself a Hansgrohe. They are dedicated to making the highest quality engineered products around and have the track record to prove it. They’ve been around since 1901 and follow a rigorous quality testing regime to ensure you get the best of the best.

Easy to install

You don’t have to be a professional plumber to install this beautiful shower head. Just a few minutes and some patience and it’ll be ready to go.

What you’ll need:

  • Adjustable wrench
  • 2mm Allen key
  • Plumbers tape


What’s not so good?


High quality comes at a cost and the Hansgrohe 27474001 is definitely both quality and costly. But if you value your shower routine and have the money to spend it’s well worth it. As they say, you get what you pay for.


Its all metal construction make this rain shower head one of the heaviest around so make sure you have a strong shower arm to support it. Installation might be an issue if you lack the strength to hold it above your head.

The Verdict

The Hansgrohe 27474001 is one of the best rain shower heads on the market today.

If it weren’t for the price I’d call it the best. Its massive size is the crowning feature and provides you with a downpour that rivals a summer rain storm. Both relaxing and refreshing. Hansgrohe uses their own unique technologies to make this shower head stand out from the rest. First of all they use their AirPower technology to enhance the flow making it feel much more intense than a typical 2.5 GPM flow rate. Their Quick Clean nozzle technology makes it so easy to clean that you just need to rub it with your hands to get any residue from the nozzles so you never have to worry about an uneven spray. Quality is also paramount. German engineered and made from solid metal the Hansgrohe 27474001 is what all shower heads should strive to be.

A truly remarkable shower head.
