Shower Sprays

There are several types shower sprays that you can purchase to fit onto your shower head.

An aerated spray mixes air with water, softening the stream. This results in bubbly, soft water that lightly washes your body.

Another luxurious setting is the rain shower, which gives off a broad spray of water in large droplets. You’ll need strong water pressure so that the water can be “shot” upwards.

The jet spray is best used for tougher jobs, like washing dirt off your body or getting shampoo out of knotted hair. The jet spray is also one of the types of shower systems that’s good to use on sore muscles, along with the more intense massage settings.

Steam Showers

In a steam shower, water is turned into water vapor and pumped through a steam outlet into the shower. Simply sitting in the shower will open your pores and cleanse your skin. Spending too much time in a steam shower can cause dehydration and dizziness. If you haven’t used a steam shower before, make sure to acclimate yourself to it little by little.

Hot Water Systems
