Shower Bliss or Shower Blah
Finding a quality shower head can make you feel like you are showering in paradise. Here's how you can make the best choice.
The feel of the water pouring forth from your shower head is second in importance only to the temperature of the water in regards to how satisfied you feel afterwards. Take your time when seeking to purchase a quality shower head. Doing so will not only help ensure a relaxing shower experience, but will also save you money and water. Let's see what to look for.
Get the chlorine out!
One half of our daily chlorine exposure is from showering. Chlorine is not only absorbed through the skin, but also vaporizes above room temperature, where it can be inhaled into the lungs, and transferred directly into the blood system. In fact, the chlorine exposure from one shower is equal to an entire day’s amount of drinking the same water.
If your shower head can take advantage of filtration technology, you're in a good place. Not all shower heads have built in filtration capacity, so it's also worth installing an Everpure water filtration system in your shower too.
When buying a water-efficient model, you are (obviously) seeking to save water. The trouble with most of these models, however, is that the flow of water is designed to be thin, and this can leave you feeling unsatisfied.
When choosing a water-efficient model, think about multiple settings. Keep in mind that if all you receive from the shower head is a meager trickle or light stream, you will be tempted to stay in the shower longer, defeating the purpose of the efficient shower head in the first place.
While saving money is important, a shower head that is going to wear out with very little use may be cheaper, but replacing it will add up.
Opting for a sturdier model, even though it costs more to start, will help save replacement costs in the long run and end up costing less. The same goes for the number of settings. A single-setting shower head that doesn't deliver a shower that is both relaxing and invigorating is going to see you using more water to feel satisfied, raising the overall cost.
Search around online and see what people are saying about our shower heads. Read about the manufacturers as well as the specific models you might be interested in.
Online reviews are extremely valuable, and many manufacturers actually read reviews and implement fixes to the next generation of products based on what consumers say online. Reviews of older models might give you a sense of what to expect with newer models.
