    good shower head for low water pressure?

    we don't really have low water pressure but all the shower heads I try don't have a strong stream. we have an old shower head that Wifey likes but it's old and nasty and I can't find a good one to replace it with. we like the kind that sits in a cradle with a hose so you can take it down and rise your feet etc. she doesn't need a massaging multi setting type but that's what we have now. any ideas?

    this one felt great at her Mom's old folks home room rental we used recently, but disappointed with it

    Perhaps you do have low pressure. Have you had it checked?

    That's the first thing that came to mind. However, I don't believe that the OP is a circus elephant.

    well the current shower head (old) is fine, power-wise. the water pressure throughout the house seems fine as well. so I don't think we have low pressure or need it checked. but thanks, I did read how many factors affect pressure which I won't list here

    Well. I'm back from watching a bunch of Seinfeld clips.

    If I remember correctly...I took apart an offending shower head and removed a little deminishing/washer just behind the shower head. I think that, that worked. Of course shower heads are a lot more sophisticated now.
    Have you tried a product called CRC? Maybe you have deposits.

    Whatever you get, mount it at a sensible height. Some midgets in the early sixties mounted my shower head...er...I mean nose rinser.
