Choosing the right shower head has become more complicated over the years. The number of options available, from multiple spray settings to models offering hydrotherapy, is staggering. Before choosing a showerhead, focus on the features that are available and ask yourself which options best suit your needs.

 

In this blog, we are going to highlight key points to consider for the right shower head. 

 

Wall-Mounted or Handheld

Both mounted shower heads and handheld showerheads have their advantages. Wall-mounted shower heads tend to be the most economical and offer the widest range of options. Still, if you’re tired of traditional rinse technology and are looking for a smart upgrade, you’ve got to try a modern hand-held shower head. You will be pleasantly surprised. Check out these 3 benefits of handheld showerheads:

  • Surprisingly Flexible – Unlike regular fixed showers, handhelds offer flexibility and adaptability for performing all types of cleaning tasks.
  • Works flawlessly in lower water pressure – Handheld bring water closer to your body, offering a more refreshing shower experience. 
  • Family & pet-friendly – handheld showers are fun to bathe with, especially handy for children and pets. You can easily rinse yourself and the entire shower enclosure.
How powerful do you want your shower to be?

Replacing a showerhead is relatively easy but it’s important to consider your home’s water pressure. The EPA-specified flow rate is for a standardized pressure of 80 pounds per square inch (psi), so if your water pressure is not that high, to begin with, a low-flow showerhead probably won’t offer the results you’re seeking. To avoid this, try to find a showerhead with a pressure-compensating flow regulator, which allows the flow to be tailored to the actual pressure in your home.

 
Filter or unfiltered? 

Filter shower heads are the newest trend in the bathing industry and very much in demand these days for their holistic benefits. Municipal water supplies go through a sanitation and treatment process. This water treatment process includes the use of chemistry that many people find undesirable. Filtering is one way to make sure the water is safe for bathing. A filtered shower head actively filters chemicals and impurities, leaving clean water that ultimately benefits your skin, hair, and health.

WaterSense  

Water-saving showerheads that earn the WaterSense label must demonstrate that they use no more than 2.0 gpm. Older showerheads used up as much as 8.0 gallons per minute. It is estimated that the average household can save more than 500 gallons per year. The WaterSense label also ensures that these products provide a satisfactory shower that is equal to or better than conventional showerheads on the market. This all adds up to real savings in water and energy.

The verdict

Showerheads are a great upgrade to your bathroom. With benefits for your health, well-being, and pocketbook, you know it is absolutely worth it. Furthermore, the decision to upgrade your shower head is relatively quick, easy, and won’t affect your budget.  A new showerhead is a one-time investment, fairly priced, and available in numerous stylish designs. You can choose the size, style, and design according to your taste and preference, and depend on a trusted plumber to do the installation
