Waterpik Shower Head Reviews

Updated by Lynda Stevens

Showers are an integral part of the day, but like all routines, they can become tedious over time. What do you do when this happens? Well, we have learned to infuse joy into the little things as much as possible.

It could be in the form of a showerhead with pressure and pulse massage to rival the best masseuse we can think of. Or it could be one that offers rain-like droplets from both a fixed and a hand-held showerhead simultaneously.

This Waterpik showerhead review is a comprehensive look at all their showerhead products to select the absolute best of them all, guaranteed to give you an enjoyable and memorable shower experience.

The Waterpik XET-633-643 high-pressure showerhead, handheld spray, 2-in-1 dual system with 5-foot hose powerpulse massage is our MOST POPULAR choice amongst other products of this brand. This is mostly due to the services provided by its already listed features and also because it is super affordable despite offering premium benefits. Other customers seem to also agree with this assessment as can be reflected in its soaring sales and high rating by reviewers.

1. Waterpik XET-633-643

This product enables you unwind, soothes and invigorates you with its dual showerhead system that delivers six spray mode settings on each head.

Altogether, the 12-spray settings administer a powerful massage experience and full-body sprays. Equipped with a 3-way diverter, the 3-in-1 shower system lets you choose to enjoy either the fixed showerhead, the handheld shower or both showers at once.

Due to the plastic material used in the production of this product, it does come off looking a bit inexpensive and cheap. The chrome finish does not completely mask this flaw. We would love it if a better material was used in its production.

Overall, this product offers a very powerful massage. We love that it offers a truly pulsating massage setting and might even compare its pressure to be more than that of an average bathtub jet stream.

2. Waterpik PPR-252

It can be painfully difficult getting our furry friends to take a shower. This pet wand does the magical by making the process as uncomplicated and simple as possible. The professional-grade contoured wand is engineered to wash dogs of all shapes and sizes. The wand can be easily connected to an outdoor or indoor hose to give your pet a faster and thorough wash.

We did not like that the hose has plastic fittings and so might be prone to damage. Also, the water diverter is chrome-colored plastic. It would be more durable if it were metal.

However, we can’t help but appreciate the attention to detail that went into the production of this showerhead. From the water combing sprays that penetrates through the fur to absolutely cover every inch of your dog’s coat to its convenient one-handed operation, this product is an absolute delight to animal lovers as it makes bath time as much of a delight as wrestling with an 85lbs. protesting, wet, angry and slippery ball of fur can be!

Specs

  • Product Dimensions: 1.5 x 1.5 x 13.5 inches.
  • Weight: 5.6 ounces.
  • Model Number: PPR-252.
  • Flow Rate/Water Rate: 2.5 GPM
  • Style: Handheld pet wand PRO.
  • Included components: Pet wand PRO, 8-foot flexible hose, outdoor hose adapter, suction cup hook, and indoor shower diverter.

Pros

  • It contains a 13″ pet wand PRO, an innovative bathing wand with multiple settings. There is the water combing spray that provides enough power to thoroughly soak through the fur or the narrow sprays that makes it easy to gently wash sensitive areas.
  • The wand can be conveniently operated with one hand, leaving the other hand free to wrestle with, sorry, rub down your pet.
  • There is an indoor diverter provided to make installation in your shower effortless. It also has an outdoor adapter that lets you connect easily to your outdoor hose.
  • Included is an 8-foot flexible hose that gives extra-long extended reach.
  • It can be conveniently stored using the suction cup or diverter hook. The suction cup can also be used for hanging the wand mid-bath.

Cons

  • The quality of the materials used in creating this product is subpar. From the plastic diverter to the stiff hose with plastic fittings.

Summary

Bathing your dog is way easier with the 13-inch wand that offers a narrow spray, making it easier to wash around delicate and hard-to-reach body parts, and a water comb spray that can easily soak down your dog’s fur as well as rinse away grime, shampoo, and soap suds.

7. Waterpik NML-603

This product is one of the exclusive models of the company because it combines aspects of both a fixed-head and a handheld unit. It comes with a flexible 18-inch hose which lets you adjust the height, position or angle.

This FlexNeck might come off looking a bit unattractive with its too-long neck. If there was a way to retract this 18″ hose when not in use, it would make the product much more impressive.

Notwithstanding, we love the all-inclusiveness that this showerhead offers to every member of the family, irrespective of height or age. The neck can be as easily adjusted to suit very tall adults as it can be arranged for use by children.

Specs

  • Product Dimensions: 18 x 3.8 x 7.8 inches.

About The Brand

Since commencing production in 1962, Waterpik has found innovative ways to enhance showerheads to fit any mood and bathroom. Originally known as Aqua Tec Corp, they have acquired many patents for their innovations and are distinguished for their award-winning innovative designs and technology.

Through these designs and technology, they have consistently produced showerheads that are versatile, easy to use, easy to install, give good value for money.

FAQs

What does GPM mean?

GPM is the shortened term for Gallons Per Minute. The flow rate measures how many gallons of water flow from your showerhead per minute.

The federally mandated rate since 1992 is 2.5 GPM and Waterpik adheres to this standard.

What is the Water-Saving Feature?

The water-saving trickle feature restricts the flow of water to between 1/2 to 1 gallon per minute. Waterpik shower products have this feature in compliance with the building codes of most United States buildings which allow the showerhead to completely shut off the water supply.

How can I Access the Warranty on my Shower Product?

You’d need to provide a dated sales receipt for warranty validation. However, if you do not have the receipt, provide at least two images of the showerhead: one to show the face of the shower and the other to depict the issue being experienced.

Send the photos along with the reason for the claim, your name, address and telephone number as a mail to service@waterpik.com.

Final Thoughts

These Waterpik showerheads deliver an amazing shower experience with their multi-functions. We hope that our review of these products has helped you in your quest for the best.

The XET-633-643 is Waterpik’s most popular model because of its 2-in-1 dual system, pulsating massage shower and rainfall coverage seems to be a regular hit among customers. If you need a different alternative then an oxygenics shower head would be a good choice.
