Instant usually has poor water pressure. Probably best not to use with rain shower.

Best to install the shower head high and you'll get the 'rainshower' effect. Make sure choose the shower head with different types of spray patterns

That's not true. May be install wrongly.

instant water heater with rainshower, probably will need to get those with booster pump

but ultimately it depends on how much water pressure you're getting at the start, if it's too weak then the pump may not have able to perform magic

quite a few models to consider - rubine, champs, rinnai the few more prominent ones

Its a known fact that instant heaters have lower water pressure.

Im also interested. What I Google is Rubine boosters is noise, champs seem not bad and not much review found on rinnai.

yes and rinnai is also one of the more pricey option

i read from those purchase feedback that champs have better performance in terms of getting the pressure up but haven't been able to get much more information than that...

some commented rubine's model is AC pump, while the other brands are mostly (if not entirely) DC pump

sales reps at hardware stores wouldn't comment on such performance difference as well, mostly choosing to be safe and say it's all down to brand preference
