Types of Shower Heads

Mickey | Home Improvement | Thursday, January 6th, 2011

There are so many different types of shower heads that no matter what you are looking for you are bound to find one that fits the bill perfectly. However, it is worth bearing in mind that some shower heads are designed for use with specific showers, so you will need to double check that the shower head you are looking to buy is compatible with your shower.

If you have a basic electric shower, or an over bath shower that runs from a mixer tap, then you will be able to avail of nearly all the different types of shower heads available. There are a few best sellers among the ranges, one of which is the low pressure shower head, which is perfect for those that often find they have low water pressure. This kind of shower head works simply by creating a backflow in the shower head itself until the pressure builds up to a stipulated level, at which point the water is allowed to flow. This is an ongoing process and you will not notice any difference to your shower, other than an increase in water pressure. These kinds of shower heads are not recommended for use as power shower heads as they can work against the pump of the power shower and cause problems.

Another really popular type is the rainfall shower head, and these tend to be very large, flat shower heads that create a cascade of water, mimicking a heavy rain storm. They can be very theraputic to stand under and can really help to wash the day away. A unique style of theraputic and fun shower head is the LED shower head, and as the name suggests, these shower heads have LED lights within them that illuminate the water as it flows. They are powered by the motion of the water so are a fairly eco shower head too. There are a few variations on this shower head and you can have a single colour or even temperature sensitive colours, depending on what you prefer.
