Shower Head – Choices for your Bathroom

A fixed shower head is now one of the most important features you will choose for your shower or bathroom so lets look at whats available to get the best showering experience for you.


Multi-function shower head choice

If you are looking for an exhilarating shower the a multi-function shower head is for you there are so many out there that you really need to consider what is the right one for you. The spray patterns that are available are massage, mist, pulse, rain, drench, and water saving mode.

Most consumers that purchase a multi-function shower head leave the shower head in the rain patte

rn all of the time, ask your self this question first as a multi-function shower head simply does not perform as well in a rain pattern as a single function shower head.


Single function shower head choice

single function shower headThe single function shower heads are rain or drench pattern only, they are the best at giving a good volume of water which for a practical shower is really what most people desire. They generally operate at lower pressures and can work as low as 0.1 bar pressure and still give you the function required.

There are now many water saving Eco shower heads on the market that will split or atomize the water flow to give a good spray pattern, but higher pressures would be required to obtain the correct function.


Large fixed shower head choice

Previously these were called traditional shower roses available in 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and even 12″ diameters you can still get the traditional shower roses and they are great but they have limitations. The water jets are a series of drilled holes that can get lime scaled up easily and they do tend to use a vast amount of water and can either drain all your hot water or if you are on a mains fed system it cannot supply enough water.

350mm contour shower headThe new generation of fixed shower head is both stylish and practical there are some many designs to choose from a round fixed head to square fixed heads, flat chunky you name it, its available to you. The added benefit of choosing a modern designed fixed shower head is that you get a large showering drench head without using a huge volume of water. The way the jets are designed they will always hold back some flow even under pressure, the other main benefit is that you will get rub clean jets and that stop lime scale build up and gives the product durability.

With the large shower Heads you will need to choose either a wall arm of at least 300mm or a ceiling arm to connect to the shower head. By having a large fixed shower head you will need to consider the one down side as is with all fixed heads you will not be able to rinse out or clean the shower enclosure or bath that easily so the addition of a handset is always a good idea so it is worthwhile buying a thermostatic shower valve with a built in diverter so that once you have finished invigorating yourself a quick jet from the handset and your done!!!


Water Saving Showers – Satinjet Awatea from Deva

satinjet water saving shower headDeva have launched the award winning Awatea Satin Jet water saving shower head, what’s new about this eco water saving shower head I hear you ask?

Well its not a simple case of restrictive flow as with most water saving shower heads it is a truly new concept, I first saw this shower head in London at the bathroom show and I was fully impressed with its performance, that’s what makes it different, how it works is by using it’s twin jet technology. The twin jets oppose each other water smashes into the opposing jet stream creating 3000 tiny water droplets per second delivering a wide spray pattern giving a truly drenching feeling. It also encumbers a massage setting if the soft drenching is not suiting your mood the then just switch over with the push button.

Whilst in the water saving mode the handset will only use 9 liters per minute, it is available as both a shower handset and a fixed shower head.

To the indigenous Maori of New Zealand, Awatea means moving from darkness to light, the awakening of a new dawn.

600mm shower head I think this 600mm Shower head is large enough even if you are lucky enough to have the right space to do it justice, for a 600mm in diameter shower head you would need at least a 1.2m wide shower area to make it sit well in the wet room environment.
