Your morning shower is arguably the most important part of your day, so it’s essential that when it comes to those 15 minutes of me-time, everything is just right - and this includes your shower head! If your home has insufficient water pressure, your morning shower can feel more hassle than it’s worth, which is why a low pressure shower head is a bathroom essential.
What is a Low Pressure Shower Head?
A low pressure shower head is able to work effectively when water pressures are low. This will help your shower achieve the best flow rate and strongest spray possible from the pressure you have available. A shower head with a rating of 0.1 - 0.2 bar can be considered a low pressure shower head.
Unsure of your Water Pressure?
First things first, how do you actually know if your home has low water pressure? Well we’ve put together a handy guide so you can be absolutely certain of the maximum ‘bar’ water pressure suitable for your home. This means all you have to do is look at the minimum water pressure (measured in bar) of any shower head you like the look of.
