Choosing the right shower head is a matter of both style and efficiency. There are a lot of different shower options that you will see available, and for every style that you find, there will likely be further options of which type of shower head you would prefer in terms of functionality as well. From fixed models, to handhelds, to adjustable and more, there are a lot of different options that you will find when you are searching for the shower head that will be right for your home. The question will then become which one will be the best, and how you can find the most affordable deal.
With the right shower head, what you will mainly be looking for is whether or not it will be the right fit for how you take a shower. Although there may be a great looking head that offers you the right price, if it does not feel comfortable to use, then you are most likely going to be replacing it at some point in the future. You should instead look at a shower head that you are comfortable keeping in the home for a long time.
Some people prefer the adjustable shower head in a fixed position, as it has a number of different benefits and very few complications. These types of heads can be installed at home, or you can have a plumber perform the work if you would wish, but they are rather simple installations. An adjustable shower head can be changed, as the name implies, to put out different pressures of water in different modes. The adjustable head can also be used to reduce the amount of water in an average shower by increasing pressure and narrowing the stream of water.
A fixed shower head may be an option as well, and could be the better solution for shower systems that have adjustments made at a different part of the bath. You may also be interested in a handheld version of the shower head which can come in both fixed and adjustable varieties. Hand held heads offer a lot of flexibility and can be great for those that like to get a shower that hits every spot. The type of shower head that you choose should be considered a choice you want to stick with, so make sure that you buy one that really fits your home.
A rain showerhead feels great to use. It makes you feel like you are standing in the rain or underneath of a waterfall. This can be a very exhilarating way to wash away the dirt and the stress. Unfortunately, because of government regulations this is not something that you will get from a regular showerhead, which is why you need a rain showerhead.
Regardless as to whether or not you are purchasing a new home, you will still be able to have a rain showerhead. In a new home they can be fit into your ceiling but in an older home they will need to be fit into your piping. Since every rain showerhead is a standard size, you should have no problem. Just make sure that you will be able to adjust the direction and the angle of the spray to make it more enjoyable. If it is a handheld rain showerhead, you should also make sure that you have a long hose. Not only will this make it easier for you to shower but it will also make it easier to clean the shower and bathe your dog therein.
Once you install a rain showerhead you will never want to get out of the shower again. You really will enjoy your rain showerhead that much. However, this means that the overhead tank that supplies water to your home will be emptied every time that someone in your home showers. This is because a rain showerhead consumes a lot of water. In fact, a standard rain showerhead will consume 2.5 gallons of water per minute, which is why they are also referred to as waterfall showerheads sometimes.
You should make sure to purchase your rain showerhead from a reputable manufacturer. This will cost you anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars depending upon whether you want the top of the line rain showerhead or something a little less. Regardless of what you decide, make sure that you get a replacement policy and warranty just in case you should happen to encounter any defects.
