A guide to buying power showers for your bathroom

There are many different components which go into making a shower unit work. You may need shower valves which go behind the wall and which help the shower water to turn off and on and to regulate the flow rate. You may need a shower pump to provide water for the shower. You will also need a mixer shower part, which allows hot and cold water to mix in order to get the right temperature. When buying a power shower or shower parts, you need to consider different features and options to get the right one.

Do you need an electric mixer?

One of the first things to consider when buying power showers is whether you want an electric mixer. This will be an electric unit which helps to control the water temperature of the shower. The benefit of an electric mixer is more precision. The downside to this is that the more complicated something becomes, the greater the chances of it breaking or needing service. For instance, Moen store generally offers a lifetime or limited lifetime warranty on most items in their line of faucets. However, the digital shower that they sell - called the IO digital - offers only a five-year warranty on electronic/digital components. The trickier electronic versions of things may also be more time-consuming and confusing to install.

GPM

One of the most important things when designing a shower and purchasing shower parts is the flow rate. This is generally expressed in terms of gallons per minute, or GPM. The gallons per minute dictates how much water your shower head needs and will use in order to flow properly. You need to ensure that any products you buy for your shower do not have a GPM which cannot be supported by the existing system you have in place in terms of water heater and access to water. This becomes especially important if you are on well water.

Functionality

The functionality of your shower also needs to be considered. There are many new modern shower styles out there which provide things like rain showers and body sprays. If you plan to have these, you must make sure all parts of your shower can support them.

The bathroom has come a long way. It used to be a small building located outside the main residence - a step up from a hole in the ground. It was not until the 19th century that the outhouse "came indoors" so to speak. At first, due to the etiquette of the time, the décor was very plain - and mostly white. The sinks developed along with the bathroom, and were first simple in their design, becoming more elaborate as the centuries progressed. A corner bathroom sink is a boon in a small bathroom.
