There are several benefits to a rain style shower head and the Moen Velocity S6320 embodies all of these. Not only does it give you a powerful, wide spread shower thanks to the pressure chamber installed within the unit that is more than capable of giving you an incredibly enjoyable, hygienic shower, but it also has different modes and functions dependent upon your mood and requirements which is somewhat unique for shower heads of this type. If you want an effective, attractive and practical rain style shower head, this is definitely a product you should whole-heartily consider.
APPEARANCE AND BUILD QUALITY
A rain shower-head has to appear attractive as well as perform its primary function of water delivery and these are aspects that the Moen Velocity S6320 excels at. The head of the unit has a width of 8 inches, which gives it a large, near moon like appearance which when combined with the chrome finish looks incredibly attractive in a spacious modern bathroom. This is not the only finish available, as brushed bronze and brushed nickel are other colour schemes available.
In terms of build quality, the S6320 is excellent. The shower-head itself has an incredibly solid and robust feel, with good finishing and an invisible gap between parts. The unit also comes with 100 jets full power or 30 jets for a more direct approach and each and every jet is well designed and delivers a consistent flow of water, no matter the pressure or time of day.
The unit itself is also easy to install. Whilst it is not confirmed as to whether it comes with a handy installation guide, you can get the Moen Velocity S6320 working in under the half hour with minimal plumbing expertise, which is quicker than a lot of other units available.
A feature of note on this particular shower head is that it comes with two modes. Whilst on other shower head types this is something of a given, on such a large head this is quite rare. Thankfully the two modes are incredibly effective at what they do. There is a larger, all encompassing 100 jet mode which feels much more like a wall of water consistently showering you, which is great for heat delivery and retention.
Or there is a much more focused 30 jet wash that is more direct and water saving. Washing just as effectively, this mode is more akin to the traditional “power shower” and is incredibly satisfying according to user reports. Each of these two modes is reported to use around 2.5 gallons of water a minute, which is right in line with modern shower specifications and thus makes the unit an even more viable option.
As previously noted, the power of this large rain head shower is particularly impressive, even when you have the all encompassing full 8-inch diameter head mode working. This is due to the chambered approach taken by Moen, that means water takes its time to collect in the head of the shower before being expelled. This not only creates a very effective pocket of hot water, but it also means that the delivery of water is incredibly consistent and powerful enough to wash away most grime and grease.
- A large scale, attractive shower head that is modern in appearance and performance
