If You've Got Shower Problems, Nebia Has Answers

Nebia is a product designed to solve problems, not to improve what’s already good. Nebia atomizes your water to create more surface area while using less water, which means you’ll get better results from bad water pressure, that limited supplies of hot water will last longer, and that your water bill will be lower.


If you have great water pressure, almost any shower head is just going to get in your way. Nebia is no exception, and it dramatically throttled my pressure compared to our reader-voted Delta I’ve been using since October 2015.


In fact, a Nebia will even throttle good water pressure compared to the Delta 75152 we routinely see for well under $20 on Kinja Deals.

Installing Nebia is trivial if you’ve got a standard shower pipe setup. It’s easily the best-looking shower head ever, and its range of vertical height adjustment is ridiculously wide, easily rising over the heads of the super tall or dropping to child height. Since the head angles parallel with the ceiling and you can raise it so high, Nebia can effectively become a rainfall shower head for those who prefer that.

As someone who has great water pressure, unlimited hot water, and a fixed water bill built in to my condo common costs, I’m the opposite of the customer Nebia is going for, and I love everything about it except using it. The fog-like spray Nebia produces feels great, but is just nowhere near my standards for water pressure.

To the handheld shower wand’s credit, turning it on doesn’t reduce the pressure coming from the main head, but the wand’s spray is so weak it may as well not even be there. Want to spray down your shower glass, rinse off a pet, or masturbate with the wand? Forget about it.


As a hail Mary, I removed the filter from the Nebia in the hopes of increasing pressure, but it just made the water sting without improving the situation.

In the outdoor shower at my Joshua Tree HomeAway earlier this year, which had weak pressure and ran out of hot water way too quickly, Nebia would have been fantastic, but in a new construction with great pressure, Nebia is a $600 investment that makes things worse.
