Are you looking for help on finding the best shower head on the market that offers a combination of rain shower head and handheld wand?
If so, you’re certainly not alone.
Many times when homeowners and Do-It-Yourselfers are upgrading their shower, they want a nice shower head that also has a handheld wand attached by hose. Whether for reaching places the overhead shower head won’t reach, or for easier showering if you’re handicapped, there are a lot of great combination rain shower heads to choose from.
…but that can be the problem – TOO MANY to choose from, right?!
Never fear, I’m here to help. I spent several hours combing through all of the best models available on Amazon, sorting through price, ratings, reviews, and product details, to narrow it down to the Top 5 combination shower head & handheld wand models.
Best Combination Shower Heads For A Small Budget
Delta Faucet 4-Spray In2ition 2-in-1 Hand Heal Shower Head with Hose
The In2ition line of showerheads from Delta are quite innovative (we have reviewed this whole line of showerheads more thoroughly here). They all offer both an overhead shower head and a handheld wand where the handheld wand docks inside the showerhead and fastens by the pull of a strong magnet. This makes it quite convenient to just grab the handheld shower and use it as needed, then when you’re done just snap it back into place.
This particular model gets our top choice because of its very affordable price, along with very positive reviews – getting 4.3 out of 5 on customer ratings.
It has 4 spray options: full body, fast massaging, full body spray with massage, and pause.
DreamSpa 9″ Rainfall Shower Head/Handheld Combo
This DreamSpa 9″ Rainfall shower head combo unit gets one of our top picks for a small budget because of its incredibly affordable price – less than $50 – and because it has thousands of positive reviews on Amazon from buyers, getting a 4.1 out of 5 rating.
The handheld shower wand on this model has a push-button for flow control, and the 9 inch overhead rainfall showerhead will provide ample coverage with its 2.5 gallons per minute flow rate.
This shower head is made of plastic and coated with chrome…so if you strictly want to not spend much, this has great reviews for the price, but know that it will be lower quality than a metal/brass constructed shower head, and thus why it’s so much cheaper.
Moen 21005 Refresh 9-Inch Rainshower with 7-Function Handshower
This shower head combo model from Moen rounds our top choices for those on a small budget. It is under $100 and Moen is a very reputable brand, and one of the most commonly used brands for bathroom fixtures. Also a big deciding factor are many great reviews and an overall 4.3 out of 5 customer rating.
The shower wand mounts along side the 9-inch shower head and is connected with a kink-free flexible metal hose. It provides a standard 2.5 gallons per minute of water, and has seven different settings.
Best Mid-Range Combination Showerheads
Moen 26009 Attract 6-Spray Hand Shower and Shower Head Combo
Another shower head & hand held combo unit from Moen to make our list, but this one is in the mid-range price category, as it breaks slightly above the $100 mark, but with it you get some added features like the magnetic docking of the hand held wand to the shower head, spot resistant finish, and a nicer brushed nickel finish.
One downfall is that it only delivers 2 gallons per minute, which does make it more eco-friendly – but provides a little less satisfying drenching of water over you. It’s overall well-received by buyers, getting a 4.1 out of 5 satisfaction rating from users.
SR Sun Rise SRSH-F5043 10-Inch Shower Combo Set
This combo unit from SR Sun Rise includes the shower valve as well, so you get quite a big “bang for your buck” with this one. It is designed with a modern, sleek look in mind, with clean square lines and minimum profiles. It includes a 10″ stainless steel rain shower head and 15.7 inch solid metal shower extension arm, mixer valve, and a brass handheld shower head with stainless steel hose.
Being made of stainless steel means it’s much more durable than the previous choices, and will last longer and withstand more use. It’s got a 4.4 out of 5 customer rating, and nearly 1000 reviews, 75% of which are highly positive. You’ll also get lifetime warranty on the product.
Best Luxury Handheld Shower and Showerhead Combination Sets
Pulse ShowerSpas Kauai III Shower System
Pulse is known for good quality shower fixture construction and innovative designs that give buyers unique shower fixtures to see and enjoy in their daily use. This combination unit includes an 8-inch rain can style shower head, 5-function hand shower, attached with a 59″ stainless steel hose, that docks to an adjustable height brass slide bar with a soap dish.
It has a 4.6 out of 5 rating for satisfaction, from over 600 buyers.
Atlantis 9 Oil-Rubbed Bronze Rain Shower System
Here’s a shower head combination unit with an old-world traditional look – unlike the more commonly found models today that are very modern – with its oil-rubbed bronze finish, and the styling of the shower heads and bars. This one is a whole unit, including a 10″ stainless steel rain head on a high rise shower extension arm, and a handheld shower wand with hose and adjustable slide bar to mount it to, and the actual shower mixing valve as well. It has a 3.8 out of 5 customer satisfaction rating, is made of durable solid brass, and made to last through a lot of use.
How To Install A Combination Rain Shower Head & Handheld Wand Unit
Here is a video produced by the Moen corporation, that provides great general advice regarding removing an existing shower head and installing a new combination shower head unit (with both rain shower head and handheld wand). Please note that every make and model is different, so refer to instructions of your particular shower head for exact advice. This is only to give you a general idea of the process involved.
