Is It Time to Change My Shower Head?
Posted on November 4th, 2015
There are lots of reasons you might want to upgrade your shower head. And the great thing is it’s fairly easy to do! Below, we take a look at some common reasons homeowners change their shower heads and offer a quick tutorial on how to do so.
1. You’re renovating your bathroom
No bathroom remodel is complete without a new shower head. Today, you have so many options to choose from, including:
- Rainfall shower heads
- Shower wall panel
- Multifunctional shower heads
- Handheld shower heads
2. You’d like to save water
Modern shower heads are also more water-efficient than older models. If you’re looking to save on your water bill, look for a low-flow variety. The water pressure might not be as high, but you’ll be doing the environment a favor.
3. You want to limit chemical exposure
Keep your family safe from chemicals that may be added to your municipal water supply by installing a filtered unit. This type of shower head can also be used to soften water for an improved bathing experience.
4. You have a leak
It may seem obvious, but a leaky shower head should be replaced as soon as possible. “A showerhead leaking at 10 drips per minute wastes more than 500 gallons per year,” advises the US Environmental Protection Agency.
