From basic Kohler showers to steam showers, the options are seemingly endless and we all know that choosing your shower is an important decision. The type of shower you decide to install will set the overall aesthetic appeal of the bathroom, so it is important to familiarize yourself with the different types of shower systems.
What Type Of Shower System Is Right For You
There are several types shower sprays that you can purchase to fit onto your shower head, so just be sure not to be like our friend here in picking a shower head that is not right for you.
- Depending on the type of shower head you get, you can set the shower head to use a fine spray or set it to a massaging spray.
- An aerated spray mixes air with water, softening the stream. This results in bubbly, soft water that lightly washes your body. Isn’t that nice…..
- Another luxurious setting is the rain shower, which gives off a broad spray of water in large droplets. You’ll need strong water pressure so that the water can be “shot” upwards.
- The jet spray is best used for tougher jobs, like washing dirt off your body or getting shampoo out of knotted hair. The jet spray is also one of the types of shower systems that’s good to use on sore muscles, along with the more intense massage settings. I think they use this for cleaning animals and prisoners in the 1930s movies.
One of the most interesting types of shower systems is the steam shower. Steam showers combine the relaxing warmth of a steam room with the functionality of a traditional shower. In a steam shower, water is turned into vapor and pumped through a steam outlet into the shower. Simply sitting in the shower will open your pores and cleanse your skin. And you did not even need to spend a tonne of money on a sauna. And just like a Sauna, if you Spend too much time in it, it will cause dehydration and dizziness. If you haven’t used a steam shower before, make sure you ease into it.
Hot Water Systems
There are two basic types of shower systems for supplying warm water to your shower. You can opt for an instantaneous electric shower or a mixer valve shower. An electric shower will heat the water as it goes through the shower unit. In a mixer valve shower, there’s a large water system that feeds the water through a tap and into the shower, which is similar to how hot water goes to your kitchen.
