The sound of raindrops pattering is universally soothing, and it’s no coincidence that so many relaxation music tracks involve the sound of running water or that spas are overflowing with fountains. And what’s more relaxing than standing under a waterfall? You can bring those feelings into your bathroom so that you can enjoy it whenever you want (and with no need to rely on weather forecasts!). A rain shower head will turn your mundane daily shower into a de-stressing experience akin to frolicking in the jungle.
Use a cleaner like Dettol Healthy Clean Bathroom Rapid Foam. The foam covers a large area and helps to dissolve soap scum and dirt buildup in the bathroom. It works very quickly, hence the name ‘rapid’ foam, and kills 99.9% germs (E.coli and Staphylococcus aureus). Always read the label. Use only as directed. Step one Spray the cleaner on: shower doors and tiles plus chrome taps/fittings also over the shower head. Step two Wait a few minutes to allow the foam to do its magic and help lift the soap scum and dirt. At this point I usually give the loo a clean (good time management) and when finished come back to the shower. Step three Use a damp cloth to spread the foam over all surfaces in the shower, then rinse/wipe clean. No scrubbing was necessary to clean this shower head. As good as new!
High-tech designs with lighting are dramatic. Some change colour, and, as this is powered by the water flow, there is no wasted energy. Water-saving shower heads reduce consumption without limiting pressure. Some restrict the water flow by injecting air into the stream, or by pulsing the water flow, which is undetectable to the user but still saves water. In hard-water areas, look for models with nozzles that have a plastic head rather than metal to make removing limescale easier.
Water pressure more important than volume. When buying a new shower head, try to match it to the existing hardware, which is usually chrome or brushed nickel, Johnson says. He highly recommends products from Pulse Shower Spas, which feature a shower head, a detachable hand shower and multiple body sprays. They range in price from $200 to more than $1,000. Libsack, however, recommends installing a smaller unit. “People like to feel the pressure even more than they do the volume,” he says. “So I recommend that they get away from large rain heads, and stick with 8-inch or smaller shower heads.”
