What type of shower head is best?

In this article I will carry out an analysis and comparison between several brands and models of bath shower heads, indicating their pros and cons so you can choose the option for sale that best suits your needs.

Bath time is a very special time of the day for me. To start the day or to de-stress after a long day of work there is nothing better than taking a warm and relaxing shower.

In my case I had an ordinary shower head, one in which the water comes out as if it were rain. It was not bad but I wanted something more functional and modern and give a Zen touch to one of my favorite moments of the day

So I looked for several opinions and comments on blogs and web pages and came to the conclusion that I wanted to buy a shower head to which I could control the water jet from a heavy rain in the morning to a massage for the days i am very tired.

What type of shower head is best?

Modern shower heads have several interesting features, but I recommend you take the following factors into account so that you can make an intelligent purchase:

Fixed or hand held

It depends a lot on your taste and what you consider most comfortable.

  • The fixed as its name says, are fixed to the wall so you do not need to hold them. In general, the shower head in this type of shower head is larger.
  • On the other hand, hand models are smaller but you can move them to your liking, reaching areas that a fixed one would not reach.

Diameter of head

This is an important factor since depending on the size of it will have different effects.

  • If the head is small it is great if you want to have a vigorous shower and energize yourself, since the smaller the water will come out stronger.
  • While if you choose a head with a larger diameter you will get a feeling of relaxation because the jets of water fall more gently massaging in the process.

Flow rate and water saving

What is a good flow rate for shower head?

They are different but related factors. With regard to the level of water flow or pressure, keep in mind how hard water arrives in your home, because if it is too low it is not advisable to buy such a sophisticated shower head since you will not be able to fully enjoy it.

On the other hand, there are shower heads that allow water savings and even energy efficiency, as they regulate the amount of liters of water that must be allowed to pass per minute, thus avoiding wasting water.

Number of holes

In general, the greater the number of holes the shower head has, the better. Some may have more than 70 holes. More holes translate into a greater distribution of water flow.

There are multifunction shower heads in which turning the lever you can get different combinations of jets covering and uncovering the holes.
