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.
Simple to install and use. Owners find the Moen Velocity S6320 easy to install. We also saw several reports from owners who had questions about installing their shower head and said Moen's customer service is cheerful and helpful. Once in place, reviewers say, the Velocity is very simple to use and professional testing backs that up; the Moen Velocity earns an Excellent score for east of adjustment from one independent testing organization. The Moen Velocity S6320 can be mounted on the wall or ceiling; and works with several different extensions.
Handsome and durable. Owners are impressed with the Moen Velocity S6320's construction. Unlike many less-expensive shower heads, it's made of metal, and users describe it as solid. They also admire the Moen's attractive appearance. It comes in five finishes -- chrome, brushed nickel, brushed bronze, antique bronze or oil-rubbed bronze. Many note, however, that the beautiful and durable construction comes with a steep price tag. The chrome version costs around $150 other finishes are more expensive -- up to $300 for the antique or oil-rubbed bronze finishes. The Velocity is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, and reviewers are pleased that it's made in the USA.
