The 7 Most Important Things to Consider When Buying a Shower Head

A good, relaxing shower—hot or cold—is great for not only your physical health but your mental health as well. Most of the time, when it comes to the focal point of the bathroom, the shower head is the silent companion to the bathtub. By choosing the right shower valve, you can ensure a pleasant shower experience and avoid scalding or freezing the water ball. Buy hand held shower head and wall shower heads. Here are the factors to consider when buying a shower by Likegro bathroom fixtures wholesale factory:

1. Shower size

The first factor to consider when buying a bathroom shower head set is the size and layout of the bathroom. The first decision you need to make is where to go for the shower. Even minor modifications to existing plumbing can prove costly and time-consuming. If you plan to install a shower tub, shower enclosure or shower tray, you need to be meticulous about all measurements. Choosing the right shower can be a real challenge as there are hundreds of varieties available. Before you decide which shower is best for your bathroom, double-check the other factors listed here.

2. Bathroom layout

Dimensions: Carefully measure the available space for the shower unit. Since showers come in all shapes and sizes, you need to determine if the size matches the type of shower you plan to buy.

STYLE: The bathroom can be the busiest room in your home, especially during the "rush hour" in the morning. Make sure the shower head fits seamlessly into your bathroom's functions. And since showers are available in a variety of styles and finishes, it's easy to find one that suits your tastes.

3. Water pressure

The type of water pressure in your home makes it easier to decide what type of shower you need to buy. For example, if you have an all-purpose boiler in your home, the water pressure will definitely be high. A blender shower head would work great.

If low water pressure is an issue in your home, a power shower (which is different from a digital shower) is the perfect choice for a low pressure system. Another major benefit of this type of shower is the instant and consistent supply of hot water. Since the water is only heated when needed, the system is very energy efficient and you don't have to wait for the water to heat up. Electric showers provide hot water for long periods of time, no matter how many people need to use the shower. This shower is flexible as it can also provide cold water.

4. Select the appropriate valve type

You have two options: pressure equalization valve and thermostatic shower valve. The pressure equalization valve has a handle to control the water volume and temperature. The thermostatic valve has two handles. One handle controls the water volume and the other controls the water temperature. This valve enables you to vary the flow rate while maintaining the same temperature. If you don't want any fluctuations in the water temperature (especially if children and the elderly also use this bathroom), a thermostatic shower valve is a better choice.

5. Power

If you're buying an electric shower to offset low water pressure in your home, consider how powerful you want your shower unit to be. Note that a shower that can maintain a strong flow of hot water for extended periods of time will require a higher rated motor. In this case, a powerful shower head would be a better choice.

Power showers have a built-in pump that ensures a significant increase in water flow, especially if your bathroom shower has a gravity-fed system. If you have chronic low water pressure problems in your home, this type of shower head is the right choice. Also, if mixing cold and hot water to the optimum temperature is important to you, this shower head is perfect.

6. Price

Decide how much you want to spend on the shower head. When you carefully consider all of the above factors, you will have a better understanding of the useful features your bathroom needs. The price of the shower ranges from 280 to 5000. You can find hundreds of showers in this price range. However, if you are willing to make a higher one-time investment, you can certainly buy a quality product that will last a long time.

7. Caring for people with reduced mobility

People with reduced mobility and the elderly may have to be escorted into the shower. Ensure that the ergonomic design and layout of the bathroom shower provides convenience, comfort and safety. The minimum shower size that can comfortably accommodate two persons is 120x80 cm. Install wider doors for easy entry and exit. The open shower is ideal for wheelchair access, and the non-slip shower seat increases safety.
