What every best Shower Heads has:
- Delivers a strong stream of water.
- Reduces water use.
- Keeps hot water hot.
Switches from soothing to vigorous. The Moen Velocity S6320's 8-inch head produces a generous stream, which many users say feels as if they're standing in the falling rain. Various owner reviews describe the rain shower setting as "gentle," "calming" and "soothing." Flipping a lever produces a stronger spray from just 30 nozzles (rather than the full 100 that this shower head features), and earns adjectives such as "bracing" and "massaging." Long-haired users also love that latter setting for rinsing away shampoo. Professional tests also show the Moen Velocity shower head maintains temperature well. However, a few owners say that if you don't have strong water pressure in your home, the Moen's strong stream may dwindle to a dribble, especially when other water-using appliances are running. The Moen Velocity has a 2.5 gpm flow rate.
