  • Aquatica Eco Smarte Multispray Hand Shower  SM MSHSS cp
    $246
    Good points

    Good effectiveness and comfort. Very good 7 litres/minute water-use rate. 5 spray patterns.

    But

    Removing the restrictor increased the head’s effectiveness - but its water use went up to 16 litres/minute and its comfort rating went from good to poor. This head achieved a higher overall score with the restrictor in place.

    Bottom line

    The most-liked shower head in our trial. On low pressure it also used the least hot water.

    Availability

    Sold at most plumbing merchants, but may have to be ordered in.
