5 Reasons to Replace Your Shower Head

October 15th, 2018

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think much about your shower head. Sure, we all shower every morning (hopefully), but it’s a mundane task – and often no more than an afterthought. Your shower head is just something you’re used to at this point.

But the truth is, being ‘used to’ your shower may be keeping you from some pretty massive life upgrades.

Think about your shower: How old is it? How is your water pressure? What does it look like? And what are your water bills like?

Are you settling for a lacklustre shower when you could be starting every single day with a really nice experience? If you’re scratching your head about this, you’re probably missing out.

Here are five big reasons to replace your shower head:

1. Unfortunate Appearance

Is your shower bringing the bathroom down a notch? Is it covered in white calcium buildup or green corrosion spots? Maybe it’s one of those “groovy” designs from the 70’s or 80’s. You know, the brownish pink ones.

The bathroom is the room every guest sees, so it may be worth upgrading that shower based on looks alone.

Some replacement shower heads install in minutes, and can elevate the look of your bathroom quick smart.

2. Low Water Pressure

Wish your shower had more power? Standing under a sprinkle – or even a dribble – when you could be pressure-washing your weariness away and emerging feeling like a million bucks?

Water pressure isn’t out of your control. A shower head can indeed make the difference. For example, this Aussie-Designed Air Shower gives maximum pressure by mixing bits of air into every droplet. This has the added benefit of saving water, which brings us to our next item…

3. Save Hundreds per Year on Water Bills

It has been estimated that 29% of water used in the average Australian home comes out of the shower. That means almost ⅓ of your water bill is due to shower water use. You might not think much of this – but presents a big opportunity to save.

You see, most common showers are pretty inefficient. They use around 12 litres per minute, while an efficient shower can use about half of that.

We recently ran the numbers, and just by switching to a water-efficient shower, you could save hundreds per year

It takes 30 minutes to install this water-efficient Aussie-Designed Easy Install shower. Take 30 minutes to save hundreds per year? Not bad. And if you’re nervous about installing a shower – don’t worry! This shower is designed to be installed by anyone, and there’s a 25-year warranty EVEN when you do the installation.

4. Lack of Settings & Features

A modern shower can offer you a bit more than hot or cold. Turn the morning shower into a spa with a hand shower, and spray settings like massage, high pressure, and full-coverage drencher.

5. Your Shower Doesn’t Fit You

If you’re taller or shorter than average, you know that not all showers are designed for everyone. Tall people – getting clean doesn’t always have to involve becoming a hunchback! Non-giants, have you experienced shower water that hasn’t already half-cooled down on its way to your head? It’s amazing!

A height-adjustable shower can ensure that you and your guests have a great wash – no matter their altitude.
