    Shower Head

    That's right guys, I'm in the market for one. Went to lowes today thinking I would just grab a quick replacement but was awed by the variety. This is my first time purchasing a shower head so I thought some of you folks might have a recommendation or some advice (what's a gimmick and what's actually worth it). So I have good water pressure and my utility's are included in the rent. Thanks

    Why are you buying the shower head if you rent?

    generally most repairs under $50 are the tenant's responsibility.

    I've heard good things about the Commando 450. You have to get it on the black market however.

    Renters shouldnt have good showers? If he really wants to he can take it with him when he leaves. I got one of the smaller round ones with the holes dispursed evenly - the wife hates the 'hole' in the middle.

    because I think I want a nicer one than they will provide, I'll take it with me when I leave. I will attempt a reimbursement though.

    That answers my question. It had nothing to do with thinking renters didn't deserve good showers. Every place I've rented, they've had the responsibility of fixing things that broke or wore out. A shower head would be included in this. It makes sense that you want more than your basic shower head though.

    Re: Shower Head

    I bought a Delta from Lowe's about 3 months ago. It's crome with a black plastic front and around the holes where the water comes out it is a dark gray. It's really big (that's what she said) so it really disperses the water well. I love it.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    "The Original Watersaver"
    I had these in my last house, but left them behind. Tried a number of different showerheads when we moved, but didn't like any of them. They don't sell these in the store anymore but I got 2 of them special ordered from Lowes. only about $3 each.
    Don't mess with some fancy looking dribbler get something that peels your skin off!
    I won't make the mistake of leaving these shower heads behind when we move again.
