Shower head suggestions

I'm looking to install a quality shower head in my master bath, not looking to spend over $250.00 . Anyone have any suggestions?

I have a Delta shower head that has a hose attached so you can take it off the post and use it as a shower wand. My wife seems to like it.

I can't help but think of that Seinfeld where Kramer bought the high-power one off some guy on the street.

Or the episode where he installs a food processor in his shower.

I was going to say, something that has "massage" and "pulse" capabilities...

Those are probably not legal for sale in Alabama.

I would agree, except it's very hard to find one that isn't low flow nowadays. So, when you get one, look in the back for the restrictor, and make sure it's removable. That's the big deal.

I moved into my new apartment and the first thing I did was remove the shower head and take out the restrictor. If I had been unable to do so, the second thing I would have done is go buy a new shower head.

Low flow showers suck.

What is this "restrictor" -- what does it generally look like?

You will want more than one spray setting for the water output, but you don't need more than two or three. In other words, just avoid the ones with 10 or so different spray settings.

Varies. Most I've seen look like a small plastic disc that blocks the tube where the water goes, that has three small holes in it to let some of the water through. It could be a washer looking thing. Whatever it is, all it has to do is to block up the water path and only allow some of the water in. That's a flow restrictor.
