A waterfall shower head works by diffusing the force of water flow and shaping the water in to a wide stream. It is able to achieve this with the unique shape. Instead of leaving the head through many tiny holes like in a traditional spout, water leaves through one long linear hole. Since the water is poured, and not sprayed, it can deliver larger amounts of water per second than its traditional counterparts.
Some shower faucets have the pressure/anti-scald valve built into the mixing valve and others have a separate valve completely (not built into the unit at all). Replacement unit must be exact, so take faucet manufacturer's name and unit model number or old valve.
Another benefit of waterfall shower heads that you may enjoy is they are much easier to clean. This is due to the single large gaping hole that they have. It's simply easier to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil. Contrast this to the multiple tiny holes in a traditional shower head. These are simply not easy to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil and they are therefore susceptible to things such as the build up of lime, soap scum, and bacteria.
