Show Your Tub Some Love…With a New Shower Head
At the end of a long, stressful day, there is nothing better than to soak in the shower under a stream of warm water. By updating the shower head you can make your bathroom the special retreat you deserve. There are many options available for you to create a unique look and feel for your bathroom retreat. With multiple shower choices, fixtures of all types and even special features for physical limitations, updating your bathroom is not as difficult as you might think. Here are the many choices of shower heads to consider:
Types of Water Saving Shower Heads:
There are two main types of energy efficient shower heads:
– Aerated shower heads: these types of shower heads are designed to inject air into the water, thereby reducing the amount of water that you use per shower and resulting in an almost misty sort of shower.
– Laminar flow shower heads: Laminar shower heads form individual streams of water, thereby reducing the amount of water used but still maintaining a fairly high powered flow.
Regardless of the type of water saving shower head that you use, you will be doing your part for the environment and your bank balance. Choose a type that is most suited to you and your families showering preferences.
Low-Flow Shower Head
Replacing a conventional shower head with a low-flow model is as inexpensive as $15 and is usually a quick and simple job. The payback for installing low-flow showerheads is almost immediate, depending on the frequency of showers.
Low-flow shower heads can save you half the water of a standard shower, and they save energy as well. If 10,000 B.C. Households switched to low-flow showerheads, the annual energy savings could power 300 Canadian homes for a year. Remember to also take shorter showers to further reduce your water and energy use.
Hand held shower heads offer complete flexibility to help you create a great shower area in your home. They’re great for the young and old, but work well for people of all ages in between too. Washing and cleaning become a breeze with a detachable shower head, because they allow you to easily direct the water flow to any area you need to.
Keeping the whole family happy is easy too, as most hand held shower heads can function just like a fixed wall mounted shower head.
Rain shower heads can wash your entire body with a “rainfall effect” from above, as opposed to the more vertical water stream of older models (like the one I currently have). If you’ve ever been to a day spa for a treatment and were escorted to a shower afterward, that’s what a rain shower head looks and feels like. Simply glorious!
