[Canadian Tire] Canadian Tire PlumbShop® 5-setting Handheld Shower Head $10.99

This is available in store. Includes a 60 inch hose and bracket. Some reviews cited leaks as a problem but that may have to do with installation. A pretty good price if you need a new shower head.

Perfect for throwing on when it's time to wash the pets. Not a fan of the negative effect on water pressure of this style shower head for daily use.

installed two of these at our home. I wouldn't hesitate to get another. There's a very slow leak where I attached it, just a slow drip that runs down the hose. The piece that threads onto your plumbing is plastic, but for a shower head that cheap it's worth it. Works great for cleaning the shower since you can just spray down the walls. Easy on the kids too when we bathe them in the stand-up shower. May buy another one for our future bathroom in the basement.

Will this screw on to a laundry sink faucet for washing the dog?

We had the same issue with the plastic end on a more expensive jet system. Not sure why they cheap out on the plastic ends.

If it's threaded, and the same diameter, it should work fine. You may need an adapter, check that the faucet has a male end, otherwise female/female. You can use it exterior too, I've seen it all haha.

Shower pressure is horrible IMO. Maybe that has to do with installation.

There's probably a plastic ring that you can remove or break off that regulates litres per minute, likely culprit for poor water pressure.

We had this, or one just like it, for several years at our old house. It was nothing fancy but it worked fine. Just install it properly!

Yes, there's a flow restrictor you can pop out with a screwdriver from the ball head side and modify (make the hole bigger) to increase the flow - and probably make it unreturnable/void the warranty. I just used the better metal ballhead from the previous showerhead and it worked much better than the supplied one - if it didn't, I would have returned it instead of trying to mod the plastic (I doubt you can just leave it out, as it seems to serve a structural function).

They have included some teflon tape in the box (wrapped on a small piece of cardboard), and you're right to point it out.

FYI: Don't use all of the supplied tape, a good once-around and a bit should be enough. Don't overtighten it (or too much force if using a wrench) on the shower stem when installing, otherwise the plastic will crack.

I installed it in a lesser used basement shower to make it easier to clean, and for that purpose it's a great deal for me. I would recommend going with a more durable unit if it's going to be used and handled a lot, as I don't see it being able to put up with much abuse.
