What are the benefits of a handheld shower head?

5 Advantages of Handheld Shower Heads

Handheld shower heads are extremely versatile and hold multiple advantages over traditional fixed shower heads. In this blog we’ll highlight just a few of the many advantages that handheld shower heads have. But first you might be wondering, what’s the difference between a fixed shower head and a handheld? With a handheld, you can guide the flow of the water and adjust the intensity of the stream. Generally speaking, with a wall mount you cannot do the same.  

Handheld Shower Head Advantage 1: Wash what you need to

With regular fixed shower heads, it can be hard to wash the more difficult to reach places without complicated dance moves. You can simply move the handheld shower head to where you need it.  No matter where you need it, you can reach there, and you won’t have to stand on your head to do it.

Handheld Shower Head Advantage 2: Helps the lower water pressure

If one of your constant complaints about your existing shower head is a lack of water pressure, worry no more. Bring the water closer to you, and you can have a more refreshing shower experience. Chances are you’ll feel better if you step out of the shower feeling cleaner, especially if showers help you feel more awake.  

Handheld Shower Head Advantage 3: Great for kids and the elderly

Bathing for the the younger people or for the older people in your life can be difficult. Not so much with a handheld shower head. Soap can be rinsed off more easily while staying dry, as dry as you can stay dry, in any case. Given the situation, of course.

Handheld Shower Head Advantage 4: Also great for pets

Just like with fussy kids, pets can be difficult to bathe as well. Why not save money taking your pets to the groomers? Dogs need baths often, but washing them can be difficult and time-consuming. With a handheld shower head, it’ll be easier to rinse them off. Good luck bathing your cats!

Handheld Shower Head Advantage 5: Easier to clean up your shower and/or tub

Cleaning the bathroom is a dreadfully boring chore. Of course, why not speed things up? Once you spread around your bathroom cleaning liquid, simply aim the flow of the water from the shower head where you need to rinse away the cleaning liquid.
