*Patent #7,185,830
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).


Description

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.

    Got one of these to replace one of those $10 1.5GPM shower heads just to try it out. No question it feels like a lot of water is hitting you, even though it’s about the same. The droplets are larger and are real droplets, compared to what you might call a powerful mist from the other shower head.Out of curiosity, because one reviewer measured the flow and found that it’s not as low as the most efficient heads, I decided to measure it. He’s right: it’s a tiny bit more than 1.5GPM (1.6, by my calculation), but considering the very nice feel, nothing to stop you from using it if you’re looking for efficiency.That said, I think that the preference between this and the $10 1.5GPM head is very much subjective. So you might want to base your decision on price, since the difference in feel, while clearly noticeable, is minor (in my opinion).

    My father got me hooked to High Sierra. Hands down the best low flow shower head out there! Great Product, and I highly recommend it. Plus made in the USA. Can’t do much better than that!

    A rather good product especially if you are dealing with a rather small hot water heater and need to conserve hot water.Installs 30 seconds; works well.

    First, I should mention that this won’t show as an “Amazon Verified Purchase” since I chose to order directly from the manufacturer. Price is the same either way, and I like dealing with the souce.Although teflon tape isn’t called for I always use it on threaded connections and did here as well. For final tightening I enlisted one of those rubber thingies normally employed in loosening jar lids. No wrench necessary, good, tight fit and no wrench damage to threaded portion of showerhead.In no particular order:1. Temperature. There is no need to compensate for the cooling effect other low-flow heads seem to generate. I find I’m setting the shower lever in exactly the same spot used previously on a non-low-flow head. I’ve used other low-flow heads where the cooling was pronounced, and thus somewhat counter-productive in terms of savings.2. Pressure. Likewise, I’m using the same pressure setting as before with no sacrifice in “feel”. I rarely use full pressure in any shower, but wondered whether the High Sierra would deliver at a partial setting. No problem there. At any setting there is none of the “needle effect” commonly experienced with low-flow showerheads. Water delivery is satisfying and comfortable across the full range of handle settings, so I’m confident some serious savings are available with this thing.3. Noise. If it’s any noisier than its predecessor, it isn’t enough so to be bothersome at any setting.4. Draining. There’s NO residual dripping after shutting it off. Clearly it empties instantly and completely. Given that and its all-metal construction, there should be zero opportunity for bacteria growth.The bottom line here is that this is an excellent showerhead that performs perfectly AND will save water and money. It’s made in the U.S.A., is reasonably priced, and at least to my eye looks great in its simple elegance. I recommend it without reservation.

    I bought an earlier version of this showerhead two years ago. It was the one with the shutoff valve. After two years of use with hard water it still works like new. It has never clogged once. The only issue I have with the old showerhead is on VERY rare occasions(happened 2 times in 2 years of ownership), after turning off the water, the reverse pressure of the water flowing out of the bath spout sometime causes the silicone flow restrictor to dislodge.I recently bought the new model without the shutoff valve and plastic sleeve and Highsierra seems to have fixed this issue with the newer showerheads. This showerhead works well with a variety of water pressures but really shines with higher pressure water. The force of the water at low pressure is more than adequate to quickly rinse out soap (confirmed by my sister, whos hair is over 3 feet long). At high pressure, it is like a mini wall of water blasting you. I used an old 3gpm+ showerhead before I purchased the highsierra, and the highsierra (at high pressure) feels like more water flow than the 3gpm showerhead. It’s only when you try to wash your feet and see how little water is flowing down the drain you realize it is only 1.5gpm. IMO these are about as close to perfect as showerheads are going to get. I’m really surprised that these aren’t more popular.4.5 stars for the old version because of the silicone flow restrictor issue.(It hasn’t happened in many months)5 stars for the new version.// SEE UPDATEBottom line: If you are still using standard flow showerheads. Get some of these. You’ll be saving money in the long run.6/15/15 UPDATE: Unfortunately the flow restrictor still seems to dislodge occasionally in the newer model too, not really a big deal though. I’d still rate it a solid 4/5 stars though.

    I tried 20 different shower heads, and this is the one I like the best. I wish they made a full-flow version (2.5gpm) with the same spray pattern. As it is now, the 1.5GPM is very good. It doesn’t clog, it doesn’t get mineral build up, the spray pattern is very pleasing, and it is reasonably forceful. I do wish it swiveled a little more, but I can always buy an additional swivel to correct that. They aren’t cheap, but I still really like them. When you consider how little water they are using, the spray is kind of amazing. A great design in my opinion.

    I was skeptical that a shower head so small would produce the pressure needed to rinse my thick hair, but the High Sierra High Efficiency head does the trick. I have tried most styles of shower heads – the wide head, handheld, massaging head – but mineral deposits are a problem in my area. Without daily scrubbing, all heads became clogged, and our pressure was pathetic.I did lots of research before deciding on the High SierraI 1.5 GPM High Efficiency. There are other high efficiency models available but I, as always, read the reviews by Amazon customers to help me decide. I have used the High Sierra for almost a year, and the pressure is as good as the day we installed it. AND, I have NEVER had to clean mineral deposits from the head. Other reviewers complain about the pressure for anyone other than tall people – I am 5’2″, and the pressure is forceful enough to rinse shampoo, conditioner and color quickly from my thick hair. I love this shower head and can’t imagine ever ordering another brand or type.UPDATE – September 15, 2013I have still not had to remove this shower head for cleaning. It is as efficient and forceful as the day I bought it. I am ordering three more to replace the other shower heads in my house. I highly recommend this simple solution to the vexing problem of mineral clogged shower heads. After all this time, I would still give this shower head 5 stars.

    I ordered two of these to replace the existing 2.5 gpm shower heads that we’ve been using. Even though these use less water it feels like it’s more. I guess that’s due to the water not being aerated so much. I also noticed that I need to turn the water temperature down with these as it’s hotter than with the old heads.Very happy with the shower heads so far.

    After installing the shower head, it was immediately noticed the lower flow. The spray comes out as a relatively narrow cone (approx 7″ in diameter for 95% of the water exiting the head at about 3 feet away). Because of the lower flow, you need to wait a bit longer to determine if the temperature is correct when testing and adjusting. With the smaller spray area, you need move your body around in order to rinse. I used about 30% less water the first time I tried it and will probably improve on that number as I get more adept with the smaller spray pattern. The spray comes out at a nice velocity and doesn’t sting like some other heads with microscopic like openings. My previous head was a Moen which has a nice spray pattern but I wanted a head that used less water as I tend to spend 50% more time in the shower than the average. I found the price quite reasonable for a low flow head. I think for taller people, the spray area may be too small as you are closer to the head versus a shorter person. Something to think about.

    I am not pleased with this showerhead because the spray is strong, feels like needle stinging you, 3 out of 4 of my relatives complained about this. I found a Delta brand low flow 1.5 GPM non-clog showerhead that had a better non-stinging spray from Home Depot and the price was lower. The only small dis-advantage to Delta was that it was aerating type.Update 11/15/2011-After my review I was given the opportunity for a retrial by the seller. I am very happy that the seller understood my concerns and attempted to fix the problem. I received replacement showerheads and tested it. I felt the water spray lighter and my family said the same thing. This showerhead is now better than the Delta that I bought from Home Depot. The Delta showerhead spray is too light and I wished it was a little stronger and my wish came true. Sierra showerhead made the spray just right and now I am fully satisfied.
