Consider us to be your tour guide in this new and terrifying world of showerheads, as we show you what to look for when selecting the showerheads for the bathroom. When choosing a new showerhead, pay attention to the following things.


Choosing the Right Type of Showerhead

Numerous varieties of showerheads exist in the market these days. Consider the type of shower you desire or the type of shower that will function best in your specific bathroom. Here are some common types of showerheads available on the market: 


Wall-Mount Shower Head

It's a basic bowl-shaped shower head that connects to the shower elbow directly. This type of showerhead is popular because of its simplicity and versatility. One of the primary advantages of a single-headed showerhead is its simplicity and versatility. You can replace a wall-mounted head by unscrewing the old one and putting in a new one. As far as wall-mounted showerheads go, there are many of options, from simple designs to advanced models with adjustable angles and a range of spray modes.There is technology in these fixtures that prevent the formation of hard water build-up, corrosion, and rust. The 331659CP model by AGL is one of the prime examples of a simple yet sleek wall-mounted showerhead.

Rain Shower Head

Rain showerheads, often known as top-mounted showers, are positioned directly over the bather's head for an enjoyable soaking sensation. For example, a pendant or flush mount are both options. If you want to install a rainfall showerhead sprayer instead of replacing your regular shower head, you'll need to make some major plumbing changes. It is possible to get traditional rain waterfall shower heads with a single spray pattern or extravagant ones with numerous adjustable nozzles and colour lights. A 311644CP square showerhead is a great option for you if you are looking for rain showerheads.

Hand-Held Shower Heads

Hand-held showers were invented as a result of wall-mounted showers' inability to be moved about, as is often the case. You can bathe your children or pets, wash your hair, or rinse the shower enclosure with a hand-held showerhead thanks to its 3-to-6-foot hose's extra reach and control, which allows you to do various jobs. A hose put on the shower elbow connects these showerheads. To remove the showerhead, just pull it away from the wall-mounted holder. The 311663CP hand showerhead goes well with any type of interior you are planning.

Body Sprays and Panels

Add body sprays or multi-spray panels to your shower to simulate a hydrotherapy spa session. Vertically placed on opposing or adjacent walls, they create a water pattern that massages you from head to toe and is generally set in vertical rows. When installing a semi-custom or customised shower, body sprays and panels are typically coupled with various showerheads to provide a unique experience for the user. To determine the optimal installation sites for body sprays, consider the height of each user. Bodysprays are often installed at shoulder, hip, and knee levels. At AGL Bathware, we have a wide range of massage showers, like 331652CP

Body Sprays and Panels

A variety of showerheads have differing pressure requirements for effective flow. As a result, the water will not be able to flow with sufficient power or consistency if your home does not have sufficient water pressure. Most showerheads require between 40 and 60 psi of pressure to operate properly. Make sure to purchase a showerhead that is compatible with your home's water pressure. If the water pressure in your home is high, make sure to choose a high-pressure showerhead. 


Choosing the Right Spray Pattern

Showerhead nozzles spray water in a variety of patterns and with varying degrees of intensity. Almost all showerheads come with a variety of settings that you can easily modify on the showerhead. Look for a showerhead that has the spray settings you want. At AGL, we have a 251634CP model that has multiple spray settings, like rain, cascade, mist, etc.
