The Classics™ are the original High Sierra Showerheads® models introduced in 2011 and were constructed using a hybrid of metal parts and a single plastic part. Today, the new Classic PLUS™ shower heads are solid metal with no plastic parts. As with the original Classics™, they are small in size which makes them ideal for smaller shower enclosures and for over tubs. You will be amazed that such a wide and strong spray of large droplets can come from such a small shower head. Each one features our precise and self-adjusting flow regulator to deliver a constant flow over a very wide range of pressures (25 psi – 80 psi).


Today, the new Classic PLUS™ shower heads are solid metal with no plastic parts. It feels uniformly warm, drenching, and there’s no empty spots between the spray. It truly feels like a shower that uses double the water. It also manages to deliver a splashing sensation without stinging. Top 5 Best Showerheads blog by Wirecutter:

    I chose the 1.25 gpm head. The old shower head I was replacing was a 2.5 gpm head with a circumference of about a foot. This unit from High Sierra is VERY compact and I was skeptical when I received it. It has not disappointed at all. A couple things from this buyer that influence my personal review. It is a major plus that these are made in the USA, and the second thing is the money I have saved in both water use and water heat. Neither of those things will make you a millionaire, but they play a role in my satisfaction. If neither of those things matter to you I would advise going with another box store shower head. But I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone. This reviewer loves it.

    This is a wonderful design! Recently, we reduced our water pressure from 100psi to 80psi. Suddenly, our showers seemed like a sprinkle of water. This unit is better than the old shower head at 100psi!

    (1.8) Feels really good, truly does feel better than a standard shower head. It is powerful enough to push soap etc off my legs unlike others.

    We were so impressed with the 1.25 gpm shower head, we bought another for our daughter’s shower. She is handicapped in a wheelchair and has to use a shower chair, so a hand held shower is a must. We purchased the hose, hand held unit and trickle valve with the 1.25 gpm head. I didn’t tell her when I installed it. When she took her first shower with it, the response was worth every penny. She said it didn’t spray everywhere like the old one and made rinsing her hair a lot easier without spraying in her eyes. So if you or anyone in your household is handicapped, this is the setup you need to make showering easier. Thank you High Sierra for making our handicapped daughter’s showers easier.

    What sorcery is this? The 5.7L HS classic is “wetter” than a standard 9L/min head it replaced hete in Australia. To wok here all I needed was a 1/2 in NPT male to1/2 in BSP female adapter off ebay. This brilliant High Sierra shower head will save me thousands in hot water heating costs over its lifetime. Wow. Beautiful. Thank you.

    I used to dread getting in our shower and now I look forward to it! This tiny shower head provides great pressure and my husband didn’t believe me when I said it was low flow. Happy to know I’m doing something to help with conservation and happy to enjoy showers again. Highly recommend!

    Bought 1.5 gpm. Soooo much power! Need trickle valve on one of them because so powerful. have recommended your shower heads to many people.

    Bought the 1.5 head for our small camper as an upgrade, we have small freshwater tank so water usage really needs to be managed.
    Decided to move to the 1.25, tested at home and it was good and just didn’t have a ‘full’ feeling. Moved the 1.5 in-house and I could feel a difference (more of an ‘ahh’ feeling). The 1.25 is definitely adequate and enjoyable; just more of a true minimalist setup. We’ll still get a decent shower w/less water in the camper)

    1.5 GPM version was just purchased. impressed by the quality of the product. works very well!

  12. David P

    Love the look and quality of my new 1.5gpm shower head. Much better than the old 2.5gpm shower.

  13. David P

    Love the new 1.5gpm shower. Feels better than the old 2.5. standard head.
    Will order another hand held.

  14. Phil

    We love this small but mighty shower head! The 1.25 GPM version has plenty of pressure and provides a nice spray. On top of all the water savings, I am looking forward to easier maintenance. Our old shower head was a nightmare to keep clean with constant lime/mineral deposits on all the nozzles. An excellent product from a great company!

    Love it, best one out there!

    Easy to install and fun to stand under….so I bought another for a second shower in my home, only this time one that has a trickle valve. The fact I am conserving water in California makes me a very happy woman.

  17. Andrew

    I was worried about it giving a stinging sensation similar to a yard sprinkler since it doesn’t deliver water in multiple streams like other shower heads. It succeeds in the promise of delivering large droplets that feel more aggressive but still soothing. For the price, it is an amazing showerhead with great spray. It is one of the only lead free products you can buy. Other then lack luster looks I would recommend this to most buyers since shower heads that would compete with this one would cost over 125$.

  18. John P

    We have 3 full bathrooms in our house and I’ve installed a classic 1.25 gpm High Sierra Fixed Showerhead in each one. They provide plenty of water output so I don’t know anyone would ever need to purchase a head with a higher flow rate. When buying, I also highly recommend purchasing one with the optional trickle valve. I wasn’t sure at first if this would be a necessary addition but now that I’ve been able to try it out I’ve found that it is a really nice feature. I enjoy being able to toggle down the flow rate even further if desired. I like to partially engage the trickle valve to approximately 1/4th of the way on and find that this provides a gentler, less noisy flow, but still gives plenty of water to effectively shower – and saves even more water!

  19. Jim (verified owner)

    I own several on a large property. They provide a really satisfying low flow spray and don’t clog up with mineral. We are on our own water and very occasionally I have had to unscrew one when a big chunk gets caught in the on/off slider. Solid metal, beautiful finish, really satisfying product.

  20. Rochelle Weiner (verified owner)

    This is our 2nd High Sierra shower head — the first was a dome rain shower head, and now this simple, but powerful, shower head. We bought the 1.5 GPM version, and cannot imagine what the higher GPMs are like, since this gives out a terrific ‘shpritz”. We gave up a fancy Grohe device for High Sierra, and couldn’t be happier.

    2.0 GMP version works fine

  22. Richard Maddock (verified owner)

    I bought the Classic 1.8 gpm shower head with a trickle valve. It has been a revelation! I am now using no more than 30% as much water per shower as I had been using with my conventional shower head. I reduce the water flow to a trickle when I am soaping up and scrubbing, then turn it up to about 1.0 gpm when I am rinsing or soaking. The head design is so efficient that even at only 1 gpm, it never feels like the flow is inadequate. If I want a blast of water when I first step into the shower in the morning, I open it all the way to 1.8 gpm. It leaves nothing to be desired. Because of the drought in my area, I’ve been telling my friends about this remarkable shower head. After I owned this shower head for a few months, I bought a second one for my other bathroom. I hope this design becomes the norm in the water-conserving times ahead. If you need a new or better shower head, get one of these!

    I bought the 1.5gpm shower head about a year ago. That one was absolutely fine – nothing at all wrong with it. When the 1.25gpm shower head went on sale, the price was low enough I thought I’d give it a try. They are both great, I’m sticking with the 1.25 – it’s more than adequate.

    This shower head, coupled with a new Rinnai tankless water heater (the 20 year old Takagi wasn’t as efficient), has cut the gas bill in half during non-heating season months.

    Thank you for a very well made product that works as advertised.

  24. R Alder

    Love this, we bought the 1.25 Gallon shower head and we are saving a ton of water, water heating, and dehumidifying our bathroom after showers. And I actually prefer the shower this gives to our older higher flow head.

  25. Phil

    Great shower head. It uses less water per minute but doesn’t feel very different from the regular shower heads. Also, I love the added button to stop/start/reduce the flow of water. It’s been working out great. (And the delivery was surprisingly fast.)

    So far so good. My sister is the manager at a very larger plumbing supply store, I told her about your stuff.

  27. Phil E. (verified owner)

    2-minute installation with a wrench. Quality all-metal construction. 1.8gpm doesn’t feel like it’s water-efficient with it’s generous flow, but I trust it’s saving water! The water droplets are indeed large as stated, and it’s creates a nice effect. Not abrasive as with high-pressure jets, but substantial, so it’s easy to quickly get the job done in the mornings without standing in the shower for too long. The showerhead pivots far enough in every direction to get the water going where you need it to, and it stays in place. If practicality is important to you, then this ticks all the boxes.

  28. Jim G

    Fast delivery. Very reasonable price for the quality. I looked and looked for a quality shower head made in the USA. I found it. Worth the price and will recommend to anyone looking for a shower head made in the USA. The shower is great.

    I recently installed the 1.5 gpm showerhead. I love it! So much more enjoyable than my former 1.8 gpm. It feels like the full flow, “real” showers of yesteryear!

  30. Aaron Muir Hamilton (verified owner)

    1.25gpm doesnt seem like a lot, but it’s plenty with this design; I think it could probably work with even less.

    Way better showering experience than my previous 2.5gpm head. The trickle valve works a treat, and can be set half-way for a middle ground between trickling and showering.

    I used a pliers-wrench to install it; took just a couple minutes and it didn’t scuff or scratch.

    I had purchased one of these about 8 months ago to see how I would like the 1.5 gpm flow. I do not notice any difference while shower from my older 2.5 gpm flow shower head, but I do notice that there is less water building up on the shower pan and flowing down the drain. It does produce a little more noise but much. I have since purchased a second one of these shower heads for my other bathroom. I also like the metal construction.

    I’m glad I found High Sierra and have started recommending to friends.
    The pipes in our house need to be replaced and probably the municipal water isn’t the greatest. It isn’t uncommon for us to have to replace showerheads every so often which is all too easy to do. Showerheads from big box stores are cheap and inexpensive; the materials used in their construction reflect that. This isn’t the case with High Sierra products. We also bought an adjustable extension and I’m certain these are going to last us a long while. I opted for an included trickle valve and it’s very convenient, my water usage has dropped significantly. So glad I stumbled onto High Sierra while looking beyond Home Depot for a new showerhead. Win-win.

    I ordered a second Classic WaterSense 1.8 gpm with the trickle valve for the other bath because I liked the way it looks and the feel of the spray. Mainly I like having the trickle valve, because it makes me mindful while showering by letting me lather up and not waste water.

    I bought a ‘low flow’ shower head in the early 1990’s, 2.5gpm and sprayed in a cone. I checked onto a Navy Cruiser, and one our berthings four showers was missing a shower head. I put my nearly new one on and found I couldn’t use it because everyone else liked it also. Wound up getting two more. I’ve been using that same shower head for thirty years, but the rubber gasket finally started deteriorating. In searching for a replacement gasket, I came across these High Sierra shower heads. I got a 1.5 gpm and found it does NOT spray in a cone. It is not a bad pattern, but not like the one I’ve used for thirty plus years. The pattern is narrower, the droplets seem to be larger, and the spray not as cutting but what I personally feel is too much flow. I was talking to my brother, a greens-keeper, and he sent me a picture of one of the golf course hose nozzles they use to water greens. I sent him my 1.5 gpm and ordered a 1.25 gpm with the shut-off. To be honest, without the label and nozzle color I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two as far as flow and pattern go. I had become quite adept at taking my old shower head apart to remove scale and replace o-rings, will be nice to not have to do that with this one.
    Some things of note: the head will ‘flop’ if it isn’t tightened on the shower arm adequately, and too tight means the head is quite difficult to adjust.
    The head is several inches long, about twice the length of my old cone type — If I ever redo the shower, I will raise the shower arm at least a few inches higher.
    Cost: This head is pricy — but I wouldn’t have bought two if I didn’t think it was worth it. Almost every component is made in the U.S.A. and it is worth it to support my neighbors and save water. Also, as I mentioned the rubber gasket giving out, I asked that they send a spare gasket along, which they did with no issues. I really appreciate that service.

    Excellent product that works great and saves water! I bought the Classic 1.5 shower heads . There was a mix up in the order and the customer service I received was great. We are completely satisfied customers and will buy again from this company.

    Excellent shower head, focused spray, low flow, and attractive brass finish. Just what I wanted. And quick delivery.

    Man, these shower heads are GREAT! I installed them in about 5 minutes, each. Very easy. They look better than those flying-saucer types everybody is selling. Very sleek & sexy. And they work absolutely as advertised! I actually take shorter showers now. My wife likes hers & we’re very happy. And made here, for the most part. I’ll recommend them to anyone!

    I’ve tried low flow showerheads in the past and they’ve been disappointing to say the least. As my water rate keeps getting higher, I decided to try again and found High Sierra’s product. The fact that it’s mostly made in the USA added to my interest. I didn’t test the flow rate after I installed it so I can’t attest to how close it is to 1.5 GPM but as a shower head, it works great. So much so, I ordered another on in polished brass to go with the plumbing in a second bathroom and will soon be ordering two more of them.

    Due to water restrictions in NorCal we purchased the 1.5 GPM shower head with the trickle toggle. We are very happy with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a way to conserve some water.

    This showerhead is AWESOME. I live in a 1950s apartment building in DC. We are lucky to have good water pressure, but the showerhead I had before was sad. Purchased this at 2.0 gpm–it is a totally different experience. Honestly, the best shower I have ever had. Just buy it.

    Have been a customer of this company’s products for ten+ years. Good, solid products and this one is the same. Saves water but provides a satisfying shower. Buy with confidence.

    I’m not as pleased as I’d hoped. I chose 2GPM, and that was perhaps my mistake. The margins of shower spray are too uneven. When I try to rinse my face, it wets my hair in random places. The spray is comfortable and I feel it does a good job when rinsing my washed hair, but the random spray edges is a bother. I will keep the shower head, as it’s very well made. But, I’ll put it on my outdoor shower instead.

  45. Roy Mingus (verified owner)

    Exceeds expectations! This is an metal so many shower heads are plastic. Our house has plastic water pipes so it is low water pressure. This shower head is a perfect fit. I bought this shower head because I was watching Youtube channel Life Uncontained and they were installing one in their shower.

    I was looking online for water saving shower heads for my house built in the 1850’s, and since I was using well water and had limited water pressure, was not looking for water saving aeration models. My research led me to the High Sierra brand and I ordered one for my basement where I showered, and a second hand held model for my elderly mother on the first floor shower. I recently ordered a third HS model for the second floor shower that is for campers and RV’s. The engineer that designed these High Sierra models is a genius and deserves the patents and the profits that come come with great product design. There are models and finishes for every possible shower installation. High Sierra shower heads get my highest recommendation!

    I bought this to replace a Niagara Conservation (1 GPM to 1.5GPM) shower head that died after four months of use. I did have to lower the volume of water coming out of the 1.25 GPM Sierra Showerhead due to the volume coming out being more than my small hot water heater (Tiny House) could make, but the pressure and spray pattern are amazing. I have the shower mixer set to 1/2 way and it provides plenty of pressure and hot water. Keep up the great work!

    Also the shower head looks like a piece of art too, excellent machining.

    I was blown away by the minimal packaging and the small size of the unit itself. The flow is great and I find that I have to mix in much more cold water to get the right temperature so I am not only using less water but also less hot water. I love this product and this company!

    I used this showerhead to replace a large conventional showerhead in my upstairs bathroom that was struggling to maintain strong water pressure. The High Sierra showerhead consistently delivers better pressure than the previous showerhead – and saves water at the same time!
