Current showerheads apart from offering the perfect mix amongst usefulness and feel, offers the client a charming method to unwind and loosen up tired muscles in the wake of a monotonous day at work, or a revitalising on-your-toes experience first thing in the morning.
These showers can deliver water in several ways; from fixed to handheld showerheads, to jetted and oscillating sprays, or a combination of all the four too.
Designed keeping personal hygiene in mind, they improve the showering experience to make it ultra-enjoyable too. They have several options, which alter the water delivery methods to the body, with systems like waterfall simulations, assorted massage options, mist, jet sprays, full sprays, plus a combination of them to enhance showering experience.
Do Rain Shower Heads Use More Water
Showering is extremely eco-friendly, as a 5-minute’s shower uses 1/3 the water used to take a bath. Many showerhead fittings nowadays have an on/off switch, allowing you to stop the flow of water while you are shaving or soaping up.
Fitting a showerhead flow restrictor system can save you thousands on electricity and water consumption annually is another excellent and incredibly affordable idea. It can save you lots of money on electricity and water consumption every year, and can reduce water flow up to 1, 34 & 1, 66 liters per minute depending on the water pressure, reducing power bills in the process, as the geyser will not be working overtime to heat the inflow of extra water constantly.
These gadgets are not recommended in areas experiencing low water pressure.
You could opt for a low flow showerhead that does not interfere with the water flow power, but saves water. The inbuilt mechanism of these showerheads converts weak pressure water into high pressure by combining the water with air, delivering a massage like effect. Certain models do not mix water with air. The disadvantage is that these showerheads lower the water temperature while aerating it. Therefore, avoid it if you like hot showers.
Take into account the water pressure of your home before choosing a showerhead. Certain showerheads solve low water pressure problem, whereas others require constant high water pressure to function properly.
Many models offer special features that enhance your showering experiences.
Flow adjusting dials allow you to control the pressure of water in your shower. Turn it down for a gentle flow or turn it up for a deeper, massage type effect.
Showerhead filters: Inbuilt filters purify the water of potentially harmful bacteria and remove chlorine — which has a negative effect on your hair and skin, making them dry and brittle — from the water. Purified water improves the strength of your hair and the complexion and elasticity of your skin.
Shut-off valves: They switch off the flow of water so that you can shave or wash yourself and your hair, before you switch them on again to rinse.
Anti-scalding protection: Use a showerhead with anti-scald protection if elderly people or small children will be using the shower. You can purchase an anti-scald and fit it between the showerhead and shower arm.
Self-cleaning showerheads: Such showerheads remove clogging particles after each use.
