Why a Hand-Held Showerhead is a Necessity?



On the average people in the US will take roughly 28,433 showers in their lifetime. Most people chase after the perfect shower like it is our mission, making sure the water pressure is strong enough, the water is not too hot or too cold, and let’s not forget the showerhead. The showerhead is a key part in getting the perfect shower.

People are like snowflakes; each person is different and each person adjusts their shower and showerhead differently. The best way to get closer to that perfect shower is a hand-held showerhead. A hand-held shower allows you to adjust the water spray, makes it easy to conserve water and energy without losing water pressure and you are able to replace the shower heads without extensive renovations.

Hand-held showers make clean up a breeze! You can now rinse away soap scum or mildew from your shower and tile by allowing you to spray down the walls scrubbing and rinsing them clean when you are done.

A typical showerhead will use large amounts of water causing your water and electric bill to stay high, a hand-held shower will keep these bills low. Some manufacturers will offer a low-flow handheld showerhead specifically designed to give you the best shower experience with the least amount of waste by including special aerators that add air to the water spray to increase pressure and use less water. If you choose a showerhead rated at 2 GPM or less and you’ll save 2,300 gallons of water a year.

Handheld showerheads provide benefits everyone especially individuals with limited mobility, children, the elderly and disabled. The long hose allows these people to sit or stand comfortably in the shower while also allow them to use the shower to get clean. Fixed showerheads don’t raise or lower, most handheld models feature a hose that ranges from 3 to 6 feet (0.9 to 1.8 meters) or more.
