Inside your home, you can make all the decisions on the things that help improve your quality of life. Dishwashers make cleaning up easier. New blinds can stop the sun from waking you up early on the weekends, and that one recliner feels like it was made personally for you. Another spot in the house where you can make a big difference is in the bathroom.

Sometimes, taking your morning shower doesn’t wake you up as well as you’d like, or maybe you can’t get clean enough after coming inside from doing yard work. There is a change you can make in your shower, and that is finding a shower head for low water pressure.

You deserve the shower experience you want, and you can achieve that by selecting the perfect shower head that fits your desires. Maybe you’d like to see where you can start saving water, and a new shower head can help with your water use. No matter what reasons you have for wanting a new shower head, you need to determine what amount of water pressure you would like.

Both types of shower heads have their pros and cons, which you should know before selecting one that provides higher or lower pressure. Seeing as how showers account for about one-fifth of our total home water usage, knowing the difference between the two will help in your decision.

First off, lower water pressure means a smaller amount of water is flowing through the shower head, helping you reduce the amount of water used. This helps your water bill, as well as your energy bill, as you won’t need to heat as much water as you used to. However, you might end up waiting longer to feel the warm water through the shower head.

Next, a high pressure water head will give you a stronger flow of water, which might enhance your overall shower experience. Temperature control is improved, meaning you can adjust the temperature and feel the effects quicker. High pressure water heads also can provide different options for spray patterns. This does come at the cost of using more water, which can increase what you spend on your utility bills.

Finding your ideal water pressure is only part of finding your ideal shower head. There are a couple different types, including fixed shower heads and handheld shower heads. Again, depending on the needs of your household, the one you choose should be able to handle everything you need it to do. 

Installing a new shower head can be one of the easiest plumbing projects that any homeowner can do. The tricky part is finding the one that suits you the best.
