How to Choose the Best Shower Head for You 


You probably take your shower head for granted. After all, it's just there, hanging from the wall and doing its job day after day. But there are dozens of models on the market, each with different features and styles. With so many shapes and sizes available, deciding which is right for you can be difficult. Consider this guide your first step toward choosing the perfect shower head. In this post, we'll go over some of the different types of shower heads out there—and what makes them unique—along with features like water pressure that will help you make an informed decision about whether or not a particular model would work well in your home 


But there are dozens of models on the market. 

There are many factors to consider when choosing a showerhead. You'll need to determine what style and features you want, as well as how much you're willing to spend—and that's just for the initial purchase. Once your shower head is installed, there will be maintenance costs such as replacing filters, keeping it clean, and scrubbing down the exposed metal parts once in a while (they can get grimy). If you have a handheld or hand-held model with detachable parts like nozzles or spray settings, those might need to be replaced occasionally too. 


When it comes to shower heads, there are several different styles and types. 

Some of these include handheld, wall-mounted and ceiling-mounted. Shower heads can also be fixed or adjustable. 

Fixed shower heads have their spray patterns set at the factory and cannot be adjusted by the user; adjustable shower heads have a variety of settings that users can adjust based on their preferences. 

A handheld shower head is portable and easy for users to move around in their showers (or bathtubs). The downside of this type of product is that it requires an additional installation step for it to work properly. This means you'll need one person installing the device while another person holds the hose with their hand when they turn on the water flow from a nearby faucet or spigot. Hand-held shower head

Wall-mounted units are meant to sit on top of your bathroom wall, so you don't need to do extra installation steps after choosing what type works best for your needs! These types tend not Wall-mounted shower head

Ceiling-mounted units are usually used in the rain feature. Where you stand under the shower head as raindrops fall on top of you.

Once you've decided on a shape, it's time to look at features. 

  • Water pressure: The higher the water pressure, the better your shower will feel. Most showers have a range of 2.5-5.8 gallons per minute (gpm) of water flow, but some can go as high as 7 or 8 gpm. Around 3 gpm is ideal for most people; this amount produces enough pressure while still saving water and energy costs over time... 
  • Spray pattern: Look for one that sprays in multiple directions so you can thoroughly cleanse yourself without having to move around much. If your shower head isn't adjustable, choose one with an adjustable hose instead so that you can change its position, when necessary, without having to move anything else out of place in order to do so... 

When you're shopping for a new shower head, you can keep the following points in mind: 


  • Look for a showerhead that has a high flow rate. This will ensure that you can get clean quickly and efficiently. 
  • Look for a showerhead that has a low flow rate. This will ensure you don't waste water or money, which is always beneficial! 
  • Look for a showerhead with an excellent pressure rating. Having an awesome pressure rating means your water can blast through dirt, grime, and even hair easily! 
  • If you don't care about getting clean as fast as possible or saving money on your utility bills, then look for something with a low-pressure rating instead! 
  • Consider your water usage. If you have low-pressure water or have concerns about how much water a shower uses, look for a high-efficiency model. Some showerheads use as little as 2 gallons per minute (GPM). 
  • Think about the kind of temperature control you want. Do you want full control over your hot and cold water? Or do you prefer preset settings? There are many different options regarding temperature controls, so take some time to decide what will work best for your needs and preferences. 

We hope this post has helped you understand the various options for shower heads, and we think it's important to remember that there is no one-size-fits-all model. You should choose a showerhead based on your needs and personal preferences. For example, if you like a strong spray but want something more eco-friendly than most models on the market today, then an adaptive flow might be perfect for you!
