Top 5 Dual Shower Head Systems
1. Grohe Freehander
The Grohe Freehander Shower System with concealed fitting is among some of the upscale pricier models. It is highly rated among customers who have purchased the system. This dual head shower offers 18 spraying combinations, and each head is capable of rotating 360 degrees, making it simple to direct the flow of water where necessary. The Grohe is reported to be less than ideal for a two person shower unless two systems are installed which would result in doubling the price of a system that most would consider to be expensive in the first place. It is more useful for the multiple sprays that you can aim individually in the direction that you desire. For those of you looking for a high pressure system, this may not be the best shower head for you. This one is reported to be much more gentle, even on the highest setting, which is better for body sprays.

2. Ana Bath Combo
This is one of the most popular choices for those looking for a combo system. Like the Hydroluxe, the Ana Bath also has the handheld option for one, while the other stays connected to the fixture. Both heads are 5 inches in diameter and come complete with 5 different spray patterns. Consumers note that installation is simple and straightforward. One of the perks often mentioned by happy clients is that after several years of use, it is still operating like new.
Another selling point for this model is the fact that you can shut the flow off to one of the heads and still use the other. In other words, both of the heads work independently of the other. It seems that most costumers are in agreement that the lesser price coupled with the high quality of this aesthetically pleasing double headed shower creates an undeniable value.

3. Hydroluxe 2-in-1
This Hydroluxe Two-in-One system seems to have everything you could ask for. The double shower heads can be used together while both heads are still attached to the wall. But one of the best features is that this convenient style also offers a handheld component that can be used without cutting the water supply from the stationary unit (very much like the Delta In2ition). This appears to be a detail that is valuable for couples showering together, especially in a small space.
This attractive all chrome finished beauty comes complete with an impressive 24 function system which allows for high-powered pressure for those wanting a therapeutic water massage. The lighter pressure settings include a gentle stay-warm mist as well as an economical water-saving setting. The Hydroluxe is among some of the lower priced systems, and it gets a 4.3 rating from consumers based on quality, value, and ease of installation.
4. Zoe Neptune
The Neptune rates well and is among the lower priced options. Buyers love the contemporary look of this stylish dual headed system. Because each head swivels and adjusts separately, users report that this product is perfect for couples showering together. The three position spray pattern varies from a slightly soft spray to a full stream, and the water pressure experienced by most makes for a great massage or a relaxing soaking shower.
The spray settings can be individually regulated, but one head cannot be turned off, allowing only one to operate. They both produce water at all times. Some consumers report that they like the option of being able to take the flow restrictors out to enjoy even more water pressure, and the general consensus is that installation is quite easy. Some cons of this unit are it seems to be lacking in quality, and others state the range of swivel is too small.
5. AKDY Rainfall
The AKDY looks like it could be something from the future. It has a unique and interesting style that appeals to trendy buyers who are looking for a very modern design. The smaller component is also a handheld sprayer. Like the other handheld models, this feature makes it easy for couples showering together. Although it looks really nice, buyers BEWARE...
The AKDY has an average rating of 3.6 which is not very good. Many state they had problems with it leaking and that is lacking in quality and did not last very long. Others state that the pressure is severely slow - not much better than a drizzle. Although the price looks good, it is not necessarily a good buy. There are many better options in the price range (mentioned above), and in this case, it might be worth spending a bit more for better quality item.
As you can see, there are many options on the market today. Finding just the right one for your budget, however large or small, has never been easier. Whether you are looking for options that are made for a two person shower to benefit couples showering together or you are searching for a handheld double shower head to turn your shower into a temporary dog bath; you won’t have to look far.
