5 Great Shower Heads

Shower Heads

With Shower Heads the one thing you will not have to worry about is the fitting size. In Australia the size is universal – 1/2inch so you can be assured that any shower head you buy will actually fit the existing fitting.

Can I just replace my shower head?

Yes, you can merely replace a shower rose that you are happy with then that’s an easy choice to make. What you might want to do though is change the type of shower you want to fit. But what type?

Rain Shower Heads

Growing in popularity is the large rain shower head that has lots of holes to provide a wide spray that resembles rainfall. These look great and can either be fitted into the ceiling if the plumbing allows or to a shower arm fixed to the wall.

Either way works well, just be sure that the ceiling height isn’t too high or that you get a long enough arm to get the best positioning in your shower. If your ceiling is too high then it will affect the performance of the rain spray.

Rain showers are available with a round or square shower head

Handheld shower head with hose

A handheld shower can be an extremely useful type of shower. It has the flexibility to spray everywhere which can help clean the shower, young kids and family pets.

Some are fitted to a rail to allow for an adjustable shower height. This can be especially useful in showers that are used by the whole family and the various heights of family members.

Dual Shower Head

The dual shower can provide a rain shower and a hand shower. This could be the best solution that solves your shower requirements. They are wall fitted as single units with one plumbing fitting and have a diverter to switch between the two.

You can of course create the same solution with independent plumbing so have a ceiling-fitted rain shower head and a wall-fitted hand shower each with their own water supply
