Speakman Showerheads Review

Thanks to the generosity (and patience) of the great people over at The Speakman Company we were able to test and review three (3) of their showerheads. 

We were sent the following showerheads:
6-Jet Anystream
Downpour Rain
 and one of their Hotel Showerheads

Our favorite was by far the 6-Jet Anystream

 Even though it has 48 spray channels (only 2 less than the hotel showerhead) it was an amazing showerhead. The pressure was just right. The size of the showerhead itself was perfect. The solid brass construction is outstanding. It is a very heavy item and you can tell that it is made with the utmost quality. The sprays are extremely uniform and the pressure you get from this showerhead is nothing short of perfect.
Our Overall Grade: A++
 The next showerhead we tried was the Downpour Rain.

We didn't have an overhead water spout to attach this one to but it still worked rather well from our existing spout which is a little high on our shower wall. It would have been my favorite if we had had an overhead spout. The construction of this model is solid but the silver housing on the top of the unit seemed a little thin and it wiggled even though all connections were tight. That being said, if you have an overhead spout and you prefer a gentle rain-like shower, this would be a great unit for you.
Our Overall Grade: B

The final model we reviewed was the Hotel Showerhead.

This showerhead is about twice the size of the 6-Jet Anystream but about 1/3 of the weight. This is probably because it is mass produced with lighter weight materials and made so that hotels can afford to purchase many of them for all of their rooms. They are used in hotels like Crowne Plaza, Double Tree, Fairmont, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Sheraton, Westin, and more... This model does have a very shiny outer finish but you can easily tell that the outer housing is made from a very lightweight material. Do NOT let this fool you though. The 50 spray channels on this unit makes for a very relaxing shower. You can turn the knob on the side and it will give you a very (very) stimulating massaging spray. I was really impressed with the pressure from both the normal spray and the massaging spray. It made for quite a few long showers. The ONLY reason this was not our favorite was simply its size. It is rather large but if you like a large showerhead that truly delivers great pressure and uniform sprays, this one is for you.
Our Overall Grade: A

After reviewing all three of these models we can truly say that The Speakman Company is a company to be rekoned with. Their attention to detail and their craftsmanship are amazing. In my honest opinion, they are beating a few of the more well known name brands on the market today. And for good reason. Well made, quality products. Please take a moment to browse their extensive line of products. You can believe everything they say in their descriptions. They made believers out of us.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Speakman for allowing us to do this review for them. It was a fun and exhilarating project. We truly look forward to using more Speakman products in the future and we'll be telling all of our friends and family about them.
