Are Expensive Shower Heads Really Worth It?

You’re at the store or you’re shopping online and you’ve got your eye on a couple of different shower heads. Of course, you’ve got one or two that seem reasonably priced and then you have one or two that are a bit more expensive. You’re trying to weigh out the pros and cons of each, but you just can’t decide. Sound familiar?

We’re going to tell you that you should lean toward the higher quality option. No, it’s not because we want you to spend more money – in fact, there are a number of valid reasons why it’s best to go with better quality.

After reading the below, we hope you have the kind of experience that makes you think it was worth every penny.

Spending more on a quality shower head ensures the following benefits:

  • Waste Less Water. Getting a quality shower head can reduce the number of gallons of water used on average. Sure, it might be a bit more money upfront, but it’ll be worth the savings down the road.
  • More User-Friendly. There are shower heads out there are quite difficult to figure out or that don’t have enough features to make your showers as relaxing as they could be. Not to mention, inexpensive products have a higher tendency to break or malfunction and you definitely don’t need that extra stress in your life.
  • Shower Healthy. There are models out there that will filter the water as it passes through so that you’re left nothing but pure water hitting your skin. Some shower heads can even kill bacteria and make showers more desirable with an attractive scent. Now that’s living in luxury!
  • Better Water Pressure. You’ve probably been in a shower where the water simply trickled out of the shower head, right? You may have even experienced a shower that felt more like a power wash. Well, a quality shower head will provide therapeutic pressure, and you’ll likely be able to choose your desired pressure. After all, it shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all type of ordeal.
