The shower is the place you do your best thinking, relaxing, and unwinding. A good (or bad) shower head makes a huge impact on the quality of your shower. It’s time to finally get rid of that leaky, low flowing shower head and make a serious upgrade. Chances are you won’t realize how weak your shower head is until you install a new one!
Not to mention, a low-efficiency showerhead not only sends your water bill skyrocketing but is a huge waste of water. The average American family uses nearly 40 gallons of water a day through the shower alone. With that, 17% of indoor water use in the household is from the shower.
By replacing your current fixture with a higher efficiency shower head, your wallet, and the environment, will thank you. If you really want to take you efficiency to a new level, on this list we feature a shower head that counts the number of gallons of water you’re using per shower, in real time. Now if that isn’t motivation enough, we’re not sure what is.
Whether you want a high-pressure shower head, a rain shower head, or something that is handheld, we’ve compiled a list of our favorites. Bear in mind that most shower head threads are standard in the U.S., so most of the ones on this list can be installed in your shower. However, some more modern styles are built into the shower itself so they made need special installation. Make sure to read the product details on the site before making a purchase.
