57 powerful jets
Across the 6-inch face are 57 evenly spaced rubber nozzles to give you a shower so powerful and invigorating you’ll think you’re on vacation at a luxury resort. Now imagine waking up to that feeling every morning. Or maybe you’re more of an afternoon shower person and love standing in the shower after a long day. This shower head blasts you with a soothing torrent of water and will make you forget about your problems for a few minutes with its focused high pressure spray.
Easy to disassemble and clean
Most shower heads these days make it pretty easy to clean the nozzles but the WantBa 6 inch High Pressure Rainfall shower head takes it to a whole new level. In addition to the rubber nozzles which can be cleaned by simply rubbing them with your hand until the scale flakes off, they make it really easy to disassemble the shower head for an even deeper clean. Rubbing the nozzles will do the trick most of the time, but if you’re a clean freak like me or one of the nozzles is being stubborn, you have options. Just remove the 6 screws – which are easily accessible – with a screwdriver, remove the face plate and you have full access to the inside.
High pressure spray even with low water pressure
The solution to your low water pressure issue may -and I stress may- be fixed by swapping out your shower head. If that’s the case there is none better than the WantBa 6 inch High Pressure Rainfall shower head. You’ll experience the luxury of a rain shower head with the power of a high pressure one – giving you the best of both worlds. One thing I’d like to point out is that the spray is highly focused. It leaves the head in a 6 inch circle and doesn’t fan out at all. So if you like a forceful, focused spray this is the one for you.
Flow limiter comes separate
Despite this shower head already being insanely powerful, you might want it even stronger yet. If so, the flow limiter comes in a separate package, giving you the option to add it to save a bit of water, or leave it out for a shower so strong it could peel paint (not really.) The increased flow is great if you want a nice warm massage or if you’re in a hurry and need to quickly soap up and rinse off.
Simple and to the point. You could probably call this shower head minimalist. It’s exactly what you think of when you think of a shower head. The chrome body looks great in almost any style of bathroom and doesn’t take up a lot of a space. It is made of plastic but it’s solidly built and from a few feet away you don’t even notice.
Easy to install
The WantBa 6 Inch High Pressure Rainfall shower head is one of the easiest to install, no tools are even needed. Unfortunately it doesn’t come with instructions so I’ll help you out:
- Remove your old one by gripping the base where it connects to the pipe and unscrewing it to the left – counter clockwise. (okay I lied a bit, you may need a pair of pliers if your old one has been on there for a while)
- Wrap some Teflon tape around the threads on the pipe
- Screw your new shower head onto the pipe to the right (clockwise)
That’s it. Enjoy your new shower head!
For less a meal out with the family you can improve your quality of life infinitely. Having a quality shower in the morning is known to reduce stress and anxiety. Buying a shower head where you can forget about the world for a few minutes is one of the cheapest ways you can make your life better. You deserve it.
What’s not so good?
While this isn’t really a negative, I thought I’d point it out to people who think this shower head has a rainfall and high pressure setting. Nope. It’s just a single setting. You might even prefer just a single setting so you’re not constantly fiddling around with it trying to find the ‘perfect’ spray. It’s just one powerful stream that gets the job done.
Spray is too focused
If you’re looking for a shower head with a spray that widens as it falls, you’ve come to the wrong place. This one leaves the head in a 6 inch circle and doesn’t widen much at all. However, the benefit is that you get a consistently powerful spray no matter how close you’re standing to the source. Again, not really a negative, just pointing it out.
Possible whistling noise
After reading a bunch of reviews on Amazon, I noticed some people were having issues with it making a whistling sound. I can’t really tell you how to fix it as I’ve never had that problem. It could be a faulty shower head or it could be something within the plumbing itself. Luckily Amazon has a generous return policy so send it back and get a new one.
If you’re looking for a simple, high pressure, single setting shower head, the WantBa 6 Inch High Pressure Rainfall should definitely be considered. It’s powerful enough for even the most hardened shower enthusiast, providing an intensely focused spray. You can enjoy the massage-like experience or you can get in, soap up and get out within a matter of minutes. The design is simple, yet elegant and will fit into almost any bathroom style.
If you love a strong, unrelenting shower, this is the one for you.
