Too Much Pressure? How to Choose the Best Shower Head

The Rundown 

Most people overlook the importance of choosing the right shower head, but it can truly transform your bathroom with little cost and almost no effort. Whether your goal is saving money, saving water or saving time – we can help you choose a new shower head that checks all the boxes! 

Low Pressure 

For all our environmental warriors and cost-saving champions out there, swapping in a lower pressure water head saves money, water, and energy costs. 

According to HGTV, you can save about 2,900 gallons of water each year by adding just one low-flow showerhead – these climate savings also translate to lower electric and water bills. In fact, studies show that low-pressure shower heads can reduce your water bills by 20-40 percent, every single month. 

The Caveats? 

  • Longer wait times for hot water. 
  • After waiting for your hot water, it might not be as hot as you like it. If you like your water scalding, this is not the option for you. 

High Pressure 

For our hot water heroes and spa-minded individuals  – a high-pressure shower head may be more your speed. If you feel like your current shower experience is ineffective or just plain frustrating, switching to a higher-end, higher-pressure shower head may alleviate some of your shower woes. 

The Caveats? 

  • You may see an increase in water AND energy bills.
