Benefits of A Shower Head with Different Spray Settings
Updated: Oct 25, 2022
Thanks to TikTok, Pinterest, and Instagram, people have begun to pay more attention to their shower accessories. Function and beauty — you can get both if you choose the right shower accessories for your shower room! Now, let's talk about a feature that massively changes the appeal, quality, and functionality of a shower head — different spray settings.
That's right, if you're looking for a way to get the most out of your shower, you should consider investing in a shower head with different spray settings. A shower head with multiple spray settings allows you to customize your shower experience, which can lead to many benefits (some of which we're sure you wouldn't have thought of!).
In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of a shower head with different spray settings and explore the different spray modes on the StoneStream EcoPower shower head.
What are spray settings on a shower head?
Spray settings (also known as spray modes or spray patterns) on a shower head are the different modes or patterns in which water can come out from the shower head. Many shower heads will have different combinations of spray settings that can be switched with the push or slide of a button.
Water flow velocity and surface area are the two primary factors that determine what kind of spray pattern is generated. Usually, handheld shower heads are the most common type of shower heads to have the feature of different spray modes and adjustability. Wall-mounted or fixed shower heads tend to have only one kind of spray pattern.
For example, the StoneStream EcoPower shower head has different spray settings of rainfall, jetting, and massage. Each spray, mode, or pattern provides a different showering experience. Our shower heads also increase water flow by 200% when compared to regular shower heads — this ensures that the different spray settings feel both powerful and gentle at the same time.
Benefits of a shower head with different spray settings
There are many benefits that come with using a shower head with different spray settings. Let's take a look at them.
Customise each shower to match your needs and mood
One of the most obvious benefits of a shower head with different spray settings is that you can customise your shower experience every single time.
For example, if you're looking for a relaxing shower, you can choose a setting that has softer water pressure and wider coverage (such as the "rainfall" setting on the StoneStream EcoPower shower head which is gentle, broad, and mild).
In short, you won't have to settle for the same kind of shower each time you decide to wash yourself! No matter how often you shower, we're confident that you'll find different combinations of spray settings to fit your needs and mood every single time.
Shower more efficiently and get cleaner faster
When it comes to showering, most people prefer a steady stream of water. However, that's probably because they haven't tried anything else! Yes, a shower head with different spray settings can actually help you shower more efficiently and get cleaner faster.
For example, a rainfall spray setting is great for rinsing off soap lather, while a massage spray setting can help relieve muscle tension. If you're trying to concentrate on one specific area of your body, you can try the jetting spray setting (which produces a concentrated and powerful flow of water with a small surface area).
If you're rinsing your hair after shampooing, you can switch between the rainfall setting and the massage setting to target different areas of your scalp — you get clean faster plus it will feel great!
Such shower heads also come in handy while maintaining the cleanliness of your bathroom. You can use the jetting setting to budge the stubborn dirt on your bathtub and use the rainfall setting to wash away all the soap suds from the floor of your shower room or the surface of your glass doors.
Get a massage while you shower
We've mentioned this before, but it's really underrated how good a massage from a shower head can feel! Yes, another great benefit of a shower head with different spray settings is that you can use it as a makeshift massage tool.
For example, with the massage spray setting on the StoneStream EcoPower shower head, you get the advantage of both the rainfall spray setting (which has a wider surface area and gentler flow) and the jetting spray setting (which has a smaller surface area and a more powerful flow). The combination of the two will feel great on your muscle knots, sore shoulders, and tired feet.
If you like to shower to reduce your anxiety or practice grounding in general, using a shower head with massage spray settings will be a good option for you.
Experience a rainfall shower without having a rain shower head
Rain shower heads are definitely some of the most luxurious bathroom accessories one can get. There's a reason why so many hotels and spas have them! Unfortunately, they're pretty expensive and can be hard to install.
Well, the good news is that with a shower head that has different spray settings, you can actually enjoy a rainfall shower without having to invest in a rain shower head.
The "rainfall" setting on the StoneStream EcoPower shower head produces a wide and gentle flow of water that simulates the feeling of raindrops falling on you. So if you're looking for a way to relax and enjoy rain showers without breaking the bank, this is it.
Efficiently shower kids, pets, and the elderly
If you have kids, pets, or elderly family members at home, a shower head with different spray settings can be a lifesaver. You won't have to get different shower heads for all of them because one adjustable shower head will do the job!
For example, the rainfall or massage setting on the StoneStream EcoPower shower head is perfect for rinsing off soap lather from your little ones quickly and efficiently.
In addition, you won't have to get a pet shower head — a handheld shower head with multiple spray settings will do just fine. You can use the jetting setting to target specific areas on your pet's fur and the massage setting to help reduce their anxiety (trust us, they'll love it).
If you have elderly family members at home who need help showering, a shower head with different spray settings can make things much easier for both. For example, the massage and jetting setting benefit the elderly who need to change the force of the water flow based on which part of their body they're rinsing. If their chest is too sensitive, they can use the rainfall setting. If they wish for stronger water flow on their tired feet, they can go for the jetting setting.
Save water and energy
Finally, another great benefit of shower heads with different spray settings is that they can help you save water and energy in the shower.
Depending on the setting you use, some shower heads can actually reduce your water consumption. For example, the StoneStream EcoPower can reduce your water usage by up to 35% when compared to regular shower heads that don't have multiple spray settings.
On top of that, using less water also means using less hot water, which in turn means reduced energy bills. So if you're looking for a way to be more eco-friendly and save some money, investing in a shower head with different spray settings is a great option.
We hope this article has helped you see the many benefits of having a shower head with different spray settings!
Enjoy 3 Spray Settings and a Stop Button with the StoneStream EcoPower Shower Head
You already know that the massively popular StoneStream EcoPower shower head comes with three different spray settings — rainfall, jetting, and massage. But did you know that it has a stop button that allows you to pause the water flow (without having to turn the knob all the way to the off position) as well?
This is a great feature if you need to soap up or shave your legs without having to turn the water off completely. It's also very useful while showering kids or pets. Simply press the Eco STOP button and voila, the water flow pauses!
To resume showering, just press the button again and the water will start flowing at the same temperature and pressure as before. Note that the Eco STOP button is not a feature of the EcoPower shower head that is electric shower compatible (for safety reasons).
So if you're looking for a shower head that's not only eco-friendly, saves water and energy, but is also super convenient to use, the StoneStream EcoPower (which comes in both Clear-Chrome and Matte Black) is the way to go. We also manufacture high-quality shower accessories that will transform any bathroom into a functional and beautiful space.
