reasons to replace your showerhead

 

If your showerhead is old enough to get a driver’s license, it’s time to replace it. New showerheads have tons of new features and capabilities that make them worthwhile investments. The experienced plumbers at Bardi have assembled a list of reasons to replace your showerhead. Read on to find out more!

1. Save On Your Water Bill

If you are interested in slashing your water bill, new low-flow shower heads are the answer. While the maximum flow rate for showers in the US is 2.5 gallons per minute, low-flow shower heads use 2.0 gallons or less per minute. These shower heads are an excellent money-saving option.

2. Outdated Style

Not only are new showerheads more efficient, but they are also more stylish. A new showerhead can add a splash to existing décor, without breaking the bank.

3. Aches and Pains

Ever look forward to a hot shower, but are then disappointed that you don’t get the relief you want? A new showerhead can help with that. New showerheads have multiple water pressure options. You can choose a gentle rain to soothe or a pressurized stream to massage the day away.

4. Tired of Hot and Cold Bursts?

If you are tired of a sudden burst of cold water interrupting your shower, check out the new showerheads on the market today. Temperature-regulating shower heads can prevent hot and cold fluctuations caused by others using your home’s plumbing.

5. Lacking Features

New showerheads on the market today have a multitude of incredible features. If you or your family wants to take advantage of aroma therapy, rain showers, or handheld options, consider investing in a new showerhead. The following are some new, popular features found in new showerheads.

Rain-Style – Rain-style showerheads are one of the most popular models on the market today. These showerheads are mounted on the ceiling of your shower stall, as opposed to the wall, creating the feeling you are showering under gentle rainfall.

Full Body – Full body showerheads are installed at several heights in the shower stall. These showerheads enable you to experience the shower from head-to-toe.

Lighting – Some showerheads have built-in LED lighting. These lights can change colors and will enhance your mood and relaxation.

Speakers – If you’re tired of bringing your phone or speaker into the bathroom to play music during your shower, invest in a showerhead with built-in waterproof speakers.

6. High Calcium Levels

If you have hard water (water with high levels of calcium and magnesium) chances are your showerhead is clogged with minerals. These deposits reduce the efficiency of your shower. Purchasing a new showerhead will restore the pressure and efficiency of your shower.

7. A Great Selling Point

If you are putting your house on the market, a new showerhead could prove to be a great selling point. An updated showerhead will help potential buyers visualize themselves in your home, completing their morning and night routines in the bathroom. Furthermore, installing a showerhead is one less task a new owner will have to tackle in your former home.
