Shower Heads – A Brief Guide

by Fehed Nicass on Dec 17, 2013

If you had told me at the start of the year that I would finish the calendar putting up staunch defences of various bathroom items, then I’d have probably chucked a bucket of cold water over you. Thing is, when you take on any job, you end up being immersed in your market, and find yourself taking extremely stubborn positions on almost anything. It’s not healthy, no.

One of the areas I have taken to heart is the shower head, and its multitudinous design options. I know, I didn’t think something as straightforward as a shower head could present the consumer with any degree of complication but that is the case now.

To help you out then, I have put together a short guide to the main shower head designs and concerns. It’ll seem mildly patronising to some, but not all of us know that much about this kind of thing and probably welcome the plainness. So there.

Materials

Plastic or metal seem to be the go-t0 materials for shower heads, presumably as marzipan would be no good to anyone. If you go plastic, ensure the polymer is formed using an advanced moulding technology, something like Rapid Heat Cycle or similar. These are about the same price but are much stronger and wear damage better. If I had to pick a metal, I’d go for brass, as it is practically impervious to corrosion and is strong and yet not massively heavy.

Shapes

The world’s your oyster here! Ok, the same, timeworn round and square models will proliferate, but a simple Google search will cough you up shower heads shapes from moose heads to bananas. I am as at a loss as you as to why you’d want to seemingly have an elk vomit hot water all over your head, but different strokes and all that. Essentially, this one comes down to taste more than any of the others, but be aware the range is vast.

Flow

Nozzles that form one coherent spray are the baseline from which shower heads are designed. Thing is now, there are also exciting new ways for the water to be delivered. I know, I can’t believe I wrote that sentence either, but when you see rainfall or waterfall shower heads, you can see just how unique and just plain cool they are. Rainfall gives you a relaxing plod of a shower, while waterfall heads are just as they sound, with one, unbroken tide of water.

Lights!

This is my personal favourite, though I am biased as I do have one myself: LED shower heads. These great little units have lights studded into the head, which when the water pressure reaches the right pitch, will activate. My particular LED shower head shows three different hues: blue for cold, green for warm, red for hot. I explained away the general frivolity of having a disco-light shower head to my significant other by saying it’s a safety thing, as you can tell the temperature from a glance, which you actually can! You can use that if you want.
