Top 5 Picks on the Market
1. 26100srn Magnetix
We looked at the reviews posted on all the top products that we found and discovered that the model with the highest rating and best reviews is the Magnetix.
Made in the same way that some of its kitchen faucets are, this one comes with its docking station that holds the head in place in your toilet, and this docking station has magnets inside that work with the metal on the head to gently pull it back into place on the station.
This station also does an excellent job of keeping it at the perfect height in your toilet to let you stand underneath it and enjoy the water coming out.
“This Old House” named the Magnetix one of the top 100 new products released in 2015, and its popularity only grew since then because customers love all its great features.
One of those features is a switch that you can quickly grab with a wet hand or your fingers to adjust the setting and select one of the six different modes. Those modes include a rainfall setting that drenches your body in water to make you feel like you’re outside and massaging settings that use pulses of water to help you relax and eliminate stress.
As a total package, this set comes with most of the equipment and hardware that you need for installation. You’ll get a 60-foot long hose that uses a flexible material for easily maneuvering the top around the toilet, but this hose also won’t kink. The set also comes with the hand-held unit and the docking station.
The brushed nickel finish on this model is resistant to the common problems found in most bathrooms, including fingerprints and water spots that hard water can leave behind, which gives it a clean look. Small nozzles located on the spray head surface prevent leaks and are easy to clean too. This model has a maximum water flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute also.
2. 8342 Commercial Two-Handle
If you want a complete set from Moen that comes with more than just a shower head, this set might be the best choice for your home because it has a commercial design that makes it durable enough for use in hotel rooms as well as in the busiest bathrooms in your house.
No matter how often you take baths or how regularly people in your home use your bathroom, this set will retain its great look and still function correctly. It features a shiny chrome finish and comes with a limited five-year warranty.
Many people love the chrome finish on this set because it is more reflective than the chrome used by other manufacturers, which lets you use the surface when shaving or washing your face.
The Posi-Temp system that comes built inside does a great job of regulating your water usage. This system ensures that neither the water pressure or the temperature of the water will change as you bath.
As a complete set, Moen provides you with some different parts and components. The set comes with two handles that mount right on the wall for adjusting the temperature of the water in your toilet, but you can also switch back and forth between using the different components too. It comes with a more traditional model that mounts on the wall and above you as well as a hand-held unit.
This hand-held unit has the glossy chrome finish that you want and attaches to a shower bar in the same finish, and a bracket on the back lets you raise and lower the unit to reach the height that you want. On the end of this group is a flexible hose that attaches to another piece that mounts onto the wall, which lets you remove the unit from the bar for cleaning or using water anywhere in the bathroom. It even comes with the hardware that you need to mount all these parts.
3. S6320ORB Velocity Two-Function
Have you ever found yourself playing with your kids or friends outside in the rain and wished there was some way to recreate that same feeling on any day of the week?
With the Velocity from Moen, you now have more options because this model drenches you with as much water as you would see during a storm.
We also like that it comes in a more in-depth and darker oil rubbed bronze finish that sets it apart from all the other brighter and glossier options on the market.
The Velocity has an eight-inch diameter that is slightly larger than the width of the average human head, which lets you know that you will get more water out of it.
Though you can mount it at different heights and angles in your toilet, it also has an arm that attaches to the wall that you can slightly adjust to change the flow of the water and how it hits you. That arm and mounting hardware come in the package.
Some people who use rain shower heads find that these models do not produce as much water as they need, but Moen gives you two ways to use this one. You can use the small switch located along the side to change between a standard rain mode and a real rain mode. The standard mode is much lighter and perfect for rinsing off, while the concentrated mode is more intense and high for eliminating stress and tension.
If you worry that the nozzles on the spray top are too hard to clean, don’t be because this model uses self-pressuring technology that allows any water to come out to rinse off those nozzles, which removes clogs and keeps the surface clean. You can use your hand to gently wipe away any water spots or other debris that you see. The Velocity also comes with a limited lifetime warranty from Moen.
4. 3669EPBN Hand-Held
If anyone in your home has a disability or mobility problems, you should read feedbacks relating to a hand-held model like this one to see how these options are better for your loved one.
This hand-held unit is comfortable for anyone to use because you can mount it at the perfect height for standing under it and also use the portable part anywhere in the tub or toilet.
The flexible hose attached to one end lets you use it on the opposite side of the tub too and lets you get down closer to the floor when washing your pets or helping your kids bathe.
Designed to match bathrooms with stainless steel accents, the whole set features a brushed nickel finish that matches the look of steel.
It meets the standards for WaterSense certification too, which lets you know that it will help you cut back on the water that your family typically wastes. Like other models from Moen, this set comes with a limited lifetime warranty too.
Included in the set is a 69-inch flexible hose that attaches to one end of the unit, mounting and installation hardware and a 30-inch slide bar. This bar, which uses real metal in a matching finish, serves as a grab bar when permanently installed, but the bar also lets you slide the head up and down to change its height. You can purchase a separate piece for connecting the unit more permanently against the wall.
We think that you will appreciate the four spray modes that you can choose from on this model, which you’ll use and access via a built-in switch. It comes with a full spray that uses every nozzle on the head, an invigorating mode that will help wake you up in the morning and a massaging setting for targeting sore muscles and tense spots. There is also a combination spray that uses elements of each mode at the same time.
5. T8342 Commercial Posi-Temp Pressure
Whether you have kids or adults in your home who put a lot of pressure on your shower or your family just baths frequently every day, you’ll like this Posi-Temp model from Moen that the company guarantees will work in commercial settings.
Not only does it hold up the demands of any home, but it has the look and lasting power of those found in spas and hotels. The Posi-Temp system regulates water pressure and temperature to cut back on the changes that you need to make while in the toilet.
One of the two included handles has a small red dot on one side and a little blue dot on the opposite side to show you which way you need to turn the handle to adjust the water temperature up or down.
A second handle switches effortlessly between the hand-held unit and the traditional model. The conventional head has a screw-on design for quickly installing in your bathroom, and this piece comes with its arm that you can adjust while standing in the toilet.
Many people will like the hand-held unit that comes with this set, which has built-in protection against backflow that keeps the water from flowing back inside the unit and possibly causing leaks.
It also has a flexible metal hose attached to one end that also connects to the wall, which keeps the unit from slamming against the shower floor if you drop it. Also included is a metal slide bar that lets you use the hand-held unit at different heights and gives you something to read for and grab during slips and falls.
Moen designed the nozzles on each part out of rubber that is resistant to scale build-up and hard water deposits. While the water that you use for showering will help clean those nozzles, you may need to do some necessary wiping and cleaning of your own too.
