It seems over the past few years the traditional shower has become too mundane for the average consumer and as a result manufacturers have been looking for the next way to turn that morning routine into the equivalent of a waterpark thrill ride. Hansgrohe’s latest
attraction addition to their line of showerheads is the Downpour Air Rainmaker.
The first sign that this is not your traditional showerhead is that it’s 24 inches in diameter and uses 350 individual spray channels. Sure it includes all the various massage modes we’ve come to expect from a high-end shower but what sets the Downpour apart is that it can also function like a hot tub infusing the water with a jet of air. Apparently this air and water mixture creates a texture that is gentler on the skin and also results in considerably less splashing during your shower. The Air Rainmaker can also be set to use its full 24 inch diameter or can be limited to only 12 inches depending on how high you want your monthly water bill to be.
The Hansgrohe Downpour Air Rainmaker can be found online for around $2,500.
