Does Changing the Shower Head Make a Difference?

Silver shower with flowing waterAre you tired of average showers that leave you feeling annoyed? Your shower experience may be suffering due to an outdated or inefficient shower head. At AHM Plumbing and Gas, we understand the importance of a decent shower whenever you want one. That’s why we are here to guide you through the benefits of changing your shower head to give you the best shower.

Why Changing Your Shower Head Matters

Upgrading your shower head is a simple yet effective way to give you a great shower. A new shower head can improve water pressure, provide better water coverage, and even save on water usage. Here are some key reasons why changing your shower head can make a significant difference:

Improved Water Pressure and Flow

One of the most noticeable benefits of a new shower head is improved water pressure and flow. Over time, mineral deposits and wear can reduce the efficiency of your current shower head, leading to weak water pressure. A new, high-quality shower head can restore and often enhance your shower’s water pressure, providing a far better shower.

Improve Your Shower

Modern shower heads come with a variety of features designed to improve your shower experience. From adjustable spray patterns to rain shower effects, a new shower head can offer a range of options to suit your preferences. Whether you prefer a gentle, soothing spray or a powerful, massaging jet, upgrading your shower head can transform your daily routine.

Water Efficiency

Older shower heads can be inefficient, using more water than necessary. By switching to a water-saving shower head, you can reduce your water consumption without sacrificing performance. Many modern shower heads are designed to deliver a strong, consistent flow while using less water, helping you save on your water bills and contribute to environmental conservation.

Easy Installation

Replacing a shower head is a straightforward process that can be done quickly and easily. With a few basic tools and some plumber’s tape, you can install a new shower head in just a few minutes. At AHM Plumbing and Gas, we provide professional installation services to ensure your new shower head is fitted correctly and functioning at its best.

  1. Preparation: Gather the necessary tools, including a shifting spanner, plumber’s tape, and a rag or towel to protect your shower fixtures.
  2. Remove the Old Shower Head: Turn off the water supply to the shower. Use a shifting spanner to loosen and remove the old shower head from the shower arm. Clean any debris or buildup from the shower arm threads to ensure a proper seal with the new shower head.
  3. Apply Plumber’s Tape: Wrap plumber’s tape clockwise around the threads of the shower arm to create a watertight seal. This step helps prevent leaks and ensures a secure connection between the shower arm and the new shower head.
  4. Install the New Shower Head: Screw the new shower head onto the shower arm by hand, ensuring a snug fit. Use a shifting spanner to tighten the shower head securely, taking care not to overtighten and potentially damage the fixture.
  5. Test for Leaks: Turn the water supply back on and test for any leaks around the connection between the shower head and the shower arm. If you notice any leaks, tighten the connections further or consider replacing the shower head to ensure a proper seal.
