Though we like having the handheld sprayer, there have always been some problems. The sprayer fits into a little bracket, but sometimes twists so the spray goes sideways. My wife, who is almost blind when she takes her glasses off, has a heck of a time getting the sprayer back where it goes. And ditto for our grandchildren, who can’t reach it easily. However, the new Moen Attract handheld shower with magnetic docking may have solved all those problems.
The sprayer is held to its base with a magnet and is designed to slip into place every time, perfectly aligned. No twisting, and no need to lift it high to get it out. Some other nice features: six spray patterns, a 60-in. kink-free metal hose and the choice of a spot-resistant brushed nickel finish. Installation is as simple as unscrewing the older showerhead and screwing on the new one, with a little Teflon tape for insurance. The Attract showerhead is a couple inches lower than the telephone-style unit it replaced, so if you’re tall, you should consider that.
You can find the Moen Attract shower heads or a Moen Magnetix shower head at some Home Depot stores and online at Amazon. The chrome model is about $45, and the Spot Resist brushed nickel with the push-button feature is $70. But if the Moen shower head isn’t to your particular liking, you’ll want to see these 10 transformative shower heads.
