A high-pressure showerhead can energize and reinvigorate your daily routine. Whether you prefer a single-or multi-function functionality, a high-pressure showerhead helps deliver a steady, cleansing spray.

Before we get to our list of recommendations, it’s important to understand a few terms.

What GPM Is a High-Pressure Showerhead?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), showerheads must use no more than 2.5 gallons of water per minute (GPM). However, some showerheads with a lower GPM can provide sufficient spray force, coverage, and pressure.

Can a Water-Efficient Showerhead Offer High-Pressure?

Water-efficient showerheads that are WaterSense compliant must use less than 2.0 GPM. And although these showerheads technically spray less water per minute, the EPA has developed criteria to ensure “that these products provide a satisfactory shower that is equal to or better than conventional showerheads on the market.” This is all thanks to the latest technology, which can provide you with the twin benefits of consistent pressure and reduced water consumption.

Why Choose an Air-Induction Showerhead?

Air-induction technology mixes air and water to ensure sufficient coverage and spray intensity. This allows showerheads with a lower GPM to offer a pleasant performance. Even with a water-saving 1.75 GPM, you’ll enjoy an invigorating cleanse.  

Whether you’re looking to complete your walk-in shower ideas or small bathroom ideas, there’s an air-induced showerhead to complement your space.
