If you are building a new bathroom, shower stall or even if you are just replacing your existing shower, you have various options as to the type of shower that you can choose for your bathroom. Each type has its own pros and cons, and before deciding on which one you like for your bathroom, you must exhaust your options first, so you can select the best one that will give you the most benefit.
If you want hot water anytime you fancy, you can do so with an electric shower. The cold water from the main pipe is channelled into the heating element which then heats the water. This type of shower is independent from the home’s boiler. This means that even if the boiler encounters problems, you will still get hot water in your shower. You can also control the temperature of the water that comes out of the shower, depending on your preference.
This is the type of shower you usually find in a spa. The pressure of the water is stronger than a conventional shower. This provides a form of soothing massage and relaxation to anyone who takes a shower with this type. There are health benefits to this type, and one of them is improving circulation. Even if your home has weak water pressure, you can still enjoy the benefits of the power shower because it comes with a pump that strengthens the pressure. People with health conditions or even those whose muscles are sore will benefit most from this type. There is only one disadvantage to power showers though. They are less environmentally friendly than other types of showers because of the amount of water and energy they use.
This is the most technologically advanced type. It is both user and environmentally friendly. Packed with various settings that the user can personalise depending on their preferences – pressure, temperature and water output – a digital shower also boasts a modern and more sophisticated design that will add to the aesthetic value of a walk in shower.
A mixer shower, as its name suggests, mixes both hot and cold water to arrive at your desired temperature. They are mixed in the valve in the shower system and the right temperature of water comes out of the showerhead. It is compatible with both high and low water pressure, making it suitable for many types of properties.
With the advancement in technology, you get a lot more options for the type of shower that will most be suitable for your bathing needs. You can get the most out of their functionalities if you determine your specific preferences in terms of energy and water consumption as well as the physical benefits of each type of shower.
