Proper hygiene is an essential aspect of life. Not only does it help you but it is also a common courtesy to those around you, whether they be family, friends, or coworkers. Therefore, showering on a regular basis (preferably daily) is a must. Consequently, your showers heads are getting a lot of use, which means that picking one that doesn’t work for you, can become a daily inconvenience. When shopping for your next shower head, there are a few things you want to keep in mind. These things would be qualities such as the head diameter, material, and different pressure settings. Qualities such as these can make or break a shower head. As such, taking these qualities into consideration, the following is a list of some of the best shower heads currently on the market.

Water Pressure Troubleshooting
If your shower has low water pressure, be sure to check that it is the only faucet in your house that does. If it is, first check your shower head screen for any buildup and rinse it out as needed. Rinsing it out should be as easy as running it under some water, but if that doesn’t do the trick, or there is a lot of gunk inside, use distilled white vinegar and a toothbrush to scrub it off. Just make sure to use a delicate hand when doing so.
If, on the other hand, all the faucets in your home have low water pressure, you should have a plumber come and check it out.
