What Is the Best Shower Head? - Just Bathroomware

Are you on the hunt for your next shower head? Don’t know where to start looking? We all know that some shower heads are fixed, while others are handheld.

Let’s go through the different types of shower heads, and we’ll give you our opinion on which ones are best.

Types of Shower Heads in Australia

With many options out there, here are the most common types of shower heads used in Australia.

Fixed Shower Head

These shower heads are connected directly to the shower arm – the water pipe coming out of your wall or ceiling –   and some feature a ball joint that lets you rotate and adjust the water direction.

Handheld Shower Head

A handheld shower head is attached to a flexible hose that allows it to rest in a cradle or can be taken out to be used. These shower heads are a popular choice for busy families and perfect for washing kids, pets, or anyone with less mobility.

Rain Shower Head

For a more extravagant shower experience, a rain shower head is your best bet. These are fixed shower heads that boost the water coverage in your shower, especially if installed on the ceiling.

Dual Shower Head

Dual shower heads are the best choice for those who want the flexibility of having a fixed and handheld option.




What Features Should You Look Out for When Buying Your Next Shower Head?

  • Type – Are you looking for a fixed, handheld, or dual (both fixed and handheld) shower head?
  • Pressure – Not every shower head is compatible with your home plumbing, so you’ll need to check your water pressure first with a specialised gauge or with a plumber.
  • Water Efficiency – Shower heads come with a Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) rating that varies from 0 to 6. The higher the rating, the less water the shower head will use.
  • Spray Pattern – When choosing a spray pattern or direction, think about who is going to be using the shower. For example, a powerful focused spray pattern is ideal for washing long hair.
