To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this handheld shower head to replace an older Hansgrohe shower head that had cracked and was leaking from the side. In short, it feels a little... sad. There are three settings, the first two offer varying degrees of a mist-like shower experience. The way the droplets are dispersed, you can barely feel them against your skin. While this might be what some people are looking for, I appreciate a high pressure stream with fat droplets I can feel against my skin and my scalp that wakes me up in the morning and blasts off the suds. Without that pressure, I feel like I need to work a little harder to rinse clean.
The third setting does achieve some of that high pressure blast, albeit with a much more targeted, stream that shoots out from the very center of the shower head. The droplets are so small, they apply needle-like pressure over a small targeted area. It works for what I expect in a shower, but I would love a more broader, drenching spray.
I will caveat that I was only able to purchase the 1.75gpl shower head. It doesn't look like the 2.5 will deliver in California, so it's possible the 2.5gpl could provide the deluge I'm looking for. But at least I'm saving water.
