Hand held shower heads are very easy to use and are also very flexible.
These shower heads that are designed to deliver at a high pressure no matter the force of the water, normally work by creating a forceful flow that cleans the pores deeply and leaves a clean, invigorating feeling.
They aerate water by pulling air into the water-stream thus creating a powerful satisfying flow. They are designed to help increase and maintain steady pressure output at all times.
In addition, they also help in improving water-use efficiency and intensity of spray patterns.They are ideal for those living in a home where water pressure is not very strong or those who get their supply from lower pressure delivery systems such as private wells.
These showerheads are available from low to high cost depending on the model and the features.
