This $14 shower head is so powerful it's like 'the one Kramer had on Seinfeld'

More than 16,000 five-star fans love this simple and affordable bathroom upgrade.

Whether you're relaxing at a five-star spa or getting cleaned up at home, there's nothing like a good shower to wash away the day. As much as we all want to, turning your bathroom into a spa retreat isn't cheap — but there are little things you can do to upgrade your shower experience. Intrigued? Amazon has dropped the price of its fan-favorite Hopopro High-Pressure Shower Head to just $14, down from $30.

This fixed high-flow shower head has five different settings and is made with rust-proof chrome.

If you've watched more than five minutes of HGTV, then you know that upgrading a bathroom is one of the most expensive rehab projects you can do. At 50% off (less than $20!), this shower head is an easy way to get a fancy upgrade minus the financial headache (and the sledgehammer).

If you struggle with water pressure or water usage, this high-flow shower head is designed to make it feel like you're rinsing off in a rainforest. The 4.1-inch head provides a broad coverage area and gives you the sensation of standing under a tropical waterfall without having to hop on a plane.

Made with corrosion-resistant chrome, it comes with a built-in water filter and has 47 self-cleaning nozzles that prevent mineral build-up — that means nothing can get between you and your rejuvenation. It's also easy to install, so you won't need to call a plumber to get it up and running. It's a fixed head, but you can adjust the angles thanks to the ball joint.

This shower head has a massive fanbase — it's racked up more than 16,000 five-star reviews peppered with phrases like "rivals the high-end ones." Shoppers can't say enough good things about it.

According to multiple fans, you may need a reminder to end your shower. "Life-changing," wrote one rave reviewer. "This is the shower head Kramer had on Seinfeld. Trust me, you won't want to get out of the shower."

Another echoed that thought. "Holy gosh to goodness," shared a five-star fan. "That rain mode is nothing short of heavenly! I just want to be in the shower all day and night now. Addictive, yes! Be warned!"

If you have low water pressure at your home, this is a great pick. "Saw this on Consumer Reports as a top pick for low water pressure issues," wrote a happy shopper. "This probably doubled my pressure and water volume for a shower. Thinking of buying several more. Very good product. I have tried many other much more expensive brands with only moderate pressure increases. Save the money, buy this one."

Most fans have nary a negative note about this shower head, but a few users gave a heads-up about potential installation trouble. "The only downside is there is not much of a groove to put a wrench on, so use the supplied wrench even though it is just stamped metal."

Another agreed that you should keep track of the included hardware since you need a particular wrench for setup. "I dislike that it needs a special wrench for installation, but it works great, and I love the massage setting."

This easy-to-install shower head even comes with Teflon tape and a dedicated wrench to make the job faster.

"I needed to get something to cover my hair when I take a shower so I don't over-wash my color," wrote a rave reviewer. "I have thin hair and it's shoulder length, so I'm speaking from someone who doesn't have heavy or long hair, but for me, this works perfectly. I was really happily surprised that they are so lightweight but fit perfectly."
