The Waterpik RPB-173 drenching rainfall system has a medium sized diameter of 6 inches. With a 4.5 rating, this is a great choice for those who are looking for a basic no-frills rainfall shower head at a great price. It has an easy adjustable arm as well as a convenient adjustable head, which allows for very easy and versatile positioning. Also included, is a removable flow regulator which some consumers remove to allow for more water pressure. Other buyers report that they prefer to leave the flow regulator in place. Simplicity of installation, a 9 inch adjustable arm, and the attractive appearance of this Waterpik are the features most commonly liked by consumers. In comparison to many others, this one is a bit smaller; although the smaller diameter did not stop thrifty consumers from purchasing it and rating it very well.

The Hansgrohe Raindance Downpour AIR also rates a 4.7, at almost double the price of the less expensive Moen S6320. Despite the steeper price tag, this state of the art rain shower system earns a place among the bestsellers. The Hansgrohe comes equipped with QuickClean, which is an anti-calcification function. Lime scale deposits can be easily rubbed away from the silicon nozzles.   Resourceful buyers, who decide to install the Hansgrohe themselves, note that installation is a fairly simple process. The Hansgrohe flow rate measures a hearty 2.5 GPM, and the diameter of this sleek looking unit is rather large at 9 ½ inches. It seems, if money is no issue, this one fits the bill for many. Notably, one of the favorite features most mentioned by users is the larger size of the water droplets combined with the perfect water pressure which gives a clear impression of a more natural rainfall.
