The Best ShowerHeads For 2020

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

So let’s clear the air with the spelling, is it “shower heads” or “showerheads?” Well, the government spells it showerheads, so we will go with that. There are still those that still want to spell it shower heads and we’re ok with that also. With so many showerheads on the market, how do we know what would be considered the best? The best showerheads depend on your needs and desires. According to WaterSense, the best showerheads are those that use less than 2.0 gallons per minute (GPM) and provides a satisfying shower experience equal to or better than most showerheads. WaterSense is a program designed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to encourage water efficiency in the United States. The products that pass the WaterSense criteria have been independently certified before being awarded the WaterSense label. Standard showerheads use 2.5 GPM. 


“Best” is a term used in marketing to promote a product. So we’ll set our own standard for “the best.”


To be the best showerhead, you must:

  • Cost less than $100
  • Use less than 2.0 gallons of water per minute 
  • Provide a quality shower experience
  • Easy installation
  • Aesthetic appeal and value


Let’s start from the least expensive to the most. Our first choice is from WaterPik. For the cost, and the quality Waterpik is a great value.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
