DH dislikes low flow shower heads because they usually have low pressure. He likes the water to hit him hard. From what I am reading, we'd want a non-aerated head?

Do you know of a shower head that is low flow but has good pressure still?

Thank you!

I am definitely not an expert, but I thought you would want one that is aerating. As I understand it, it adds air into the water flow so that it has more pressure (or feels like it does). We got this one just recently and it has good pressure. My husband thinks its TOO strong pressure, actually ...the only negative is that we have a stall shower, and you really can't adjust where it is directed. Otherwise we are really happy with it.

The one I have was really cheap (like $6) and I think I got it at Lowe's. It's all metal and has a very small head. There is a button you can push on it that stops the water flow. I've always been satisfied with the amount of water pressure too--much better than other showerheads I've used. I don't remember the brand name, but if you call Lowe's or Home Depot and ask about it, they should know what you're talking about.
