Handheld shower is a type of shower head that is frequently used in bathrooms. Although we use it often and even several times a day, do we understand its structure?
The general structure of a bath handheld shower heads consists of two parts: internal and external structures. The external structure mainly includes threaded joints, bodies, face covers, water outlet sleeves, screw caps, and control rings. The internal structure mainly includes screens, screen frames, diffuser plates, impellers, water jet plates, and water separation plates. Its special structure is divided according to the type of shower head. For handheld showers, the special structure is a flexible hose; for wall-mounted showers, the special structure is a rotating joint; for shower rods, the special structure is the lifting rod.
The function of the handheld shower hose is to connect the shower head and the fixed bracket or faucet. The rotating head of the wall-mounted shower mainly connects the shower head and the fixed bracket, and it can also rotate at different angles. The special structure of the lifting shower is the lifting rod, which mainly fixes the shower head and adjusts the height of the shower head up and down. It can also adjust the spray angle of the shower head.
The external structure mainly includes threaded joints, bodies, face covers, water outlet sleeves, screw caps, and control rings. They mainly fix the shower head and control the water output. The internal structure mainly includes screens, screen frames, diffuser plates, impellers, water jet plates, and water separation plates. Their main functions are to filter impurities in water, control water flow speed, and increase or decrease pressure.
The installation height of showers can be divided into two types according to the type of shower: for exposed lifting shower rods, the height should be based on the water outlet surface of the shower head, and the distance should be about 2 meters. It is worth noting that these data are only average values, and actual installation of hand held shower head set should be adjusted according to the user's height. For exposed shower switches with concealed plumbing, the hot and cold water pipes should be on the left and right sides, and the center distance should be 150 cm. The hidden water outlet on the wall should be flush with the tiles, and the hidden water pipe should be vertical to the wall. After the shower is installed, it should be at a 90-degree angle to the wall. In addition, water pressure adjustment is also crucial: for handheld showers, water pressure within 1.5 kg is most suitable. Excessive water pressure may cause the shower to burst, and low water pressure may affect normal use of the shower.
