Sometimes you need something to be both visually striking, yet relitively inexpensive to turn your bathroom into a place where people talk about. The good news is that the AKDY AZ6021 Rain shower head is here to transform your bathroom so it can do exactly that. Combining an interesting and striking design with good performance and a good solid build quality, this is one of the best value rain style shower heads you can purchase. Continue reading this AKDY AZ6021 Rain review to find out all about the performance and quality it offers.
One of the most striking factors of this shower head is the interesting and visually somewhat unique design. When someone says to you “shower head” you typically imagine something relatively compact in size and round. This unit takes that preconceived notion and turns it on its head. The head of the unit is 8 inches and is square in design, which means it is large and can easily form the centre piece of any modern bathroom.
The finish is clear plastic surround and brushed chrome for everything else, from the connecting hose to the very swivel mount of the unit. This means that it is in keeping with a lot of other modern bathroom plumbing appliances, and the look is solid and genuine despite being a plastic unit, not tacky and flimsy like some other units. This partially stems from the fact that AKDY is a well established and respected brand.
As with a lot of other value shower heads, installation of this particular unit is no problem and everyone should be able to understand exactly how to connect it to your plumbing. Coming with a very handy installation manual, the unit essentially connects right up to your main plumbing and is easily tightened thanks to large screws that are both durable and non-slip. Water should be running through the unit in less than ten minutes once the unit is opened up.
Despite being a value unit in a field where rain shower heads can set you back several hundred dollars, the performance of the AKDY AZ6021 is very impressive. Whilst not truly capable of matching the high end performance of some of the most recognised brands, there is a good amount of pressure generated through the shower head itself thanks to the chamber size and quality. Heat retention is also good throughout the head, meaning it will deliver a constant and effective stream of water with no real issues.
In terms of the modes that you can engage whilst the AKDY AZ6021 is in use, you do have a somewhat limited set of options. The standard mode is a gentle rainfall type effect that is particularly relaxing and good at delivering heat all over. There is a slightly higher powered mode that does deliver somewhat more pressure, but the delivery is essentially the same. As for water consumption, purchasers of the unit should expect to see a standard 2.5 gallons per minute consumed, which is right in line with other products in the field of shower heads.
As long as the unit is purchased from a licensed and recognised supplier, AKDY provide you with a one year warranty that means if installed correctly, if anything goes wrong the unit can be returned and refitted for no additional cost. AKDY have good customer satisfaction rates and with a service such as this, it is easy to see why.
- A somewhat unique and attractive shower head, that will fit right in with modern and abstract appearance bathrooms

If you are in the market for an inexpensive and attractive rain shower head, this is a unit worth picking up. Even with just the one shower mode, the delivery is good and it really can form the centrepiece of your bathroom. I hope that this AKDY AZ6021 Rain Review has been helpful.
