The quality of a person’s bathing experience can depend greatly on their shower heads. A really slow and thrifty flow can frustrate a person who needs to clean himself thoroughly to feel refreshed, while a flow that is too strong can sting sensitive skin and waste water.
Before, mostly all shower heads were fixed and mounted high on the bathroom wall. Such shower design allows beads of water to conveniently fall down a person’s head, thus, permitting it to reach almost all parts of the body. Nowadays, however, more and more people are opting for the hand held shower-heads. Instead of being permanently bolted on the wall, these shower fixtures are removable. They can be easily mounted and dismounted whenever the bather wants to. The great thing about this kind of shower is that they are very convenient to use and easy to operate. You can also choose to point it directly to your aching muscles to relieve the tension.
For people who are satisfied with the standard shower heads in their bathrooms, getting a hand held variety may seem impractical. It costs more and installing a new one to replace the standard head can be a bit of a hassle. Also, fixed ones are made of stronger materials; hence, they are more durable and can last longer. The line that connects the hand-held version to the rest of the shower can also be damaged if pulled or twisted excessively.
However, if you can afford the extra cost of a hand-held shower head, it can reward you with added luxury whenever you shower. Rinsing out dirt and soap even with a weak water flow now becomes an easy task because users only need to point the head on the body part that they would like to rinse out. Hand held showers are also great and functional additions to bathrooms that have tubs in the shower area.
