Why would anyone want to take a shower in one of those rain shower things?!? Water all over and no pressure.
Most of them have a button which reduces the number of nozzles open, effectively giving you the choice between a 'rain shower' an a normal shower.

Turn the shower control to "warm" rather than "cold"?

The rain shower isnít meant to come out with force. Thatís the point. Normally people have both a rain shower as well as the usual shower-head attachment.

I like the ability to get a storm out of my rain shower, if I so choose, it does not have to be at full power if you don't want, thats why the tap can be adjusted

Re: Replace shower head - All rounder or plumber?

It's just one problem, it comes from above your head in a wide circle. Meaning you get water and soap all over your face. Yuck! If you have fairly long hair and wants to shampoo twice and then conditioner it takes foreeeeeeeeever.
