The inspiration behind the idea of a shower is a waterfall. The water falling from the waterfalls rinsed the bodies of people standing below it and cleaned their bodies. It was more efficient than bathing in a traditional bath basin. The first showers invented in the 18th century were operated using a hand pump. By the end of the 19th century, humans had finally invented a shower similar to the one we use today. Showers have made lives much easier by making bath time more peaceful and enjoyable. But showers often cause a leak or clog in the bathroom and may need to be replaced. There are many reasons why one would want a Shower Replacement.
When should one get a shower replacement?
- Damage and clogging
Due to how showers are designed, they are prone to clogging and leakage. Though getting the shower repaired is possible, it’s often easier and more efficient to get a replacement as generally the repairs don’t come with a guarantee or warranty, and repaired showers can easily break again while a new one would come with a warranty and will have a better life.
With new technologies and designs implemented every day, there is a wide variety of showers with different designs and features, such as an Adjustable shower that has set like pulsating massage and low/medium/high-pressure flow, etc., a shower panel with voice control. People who like to stick to the trend and can afford it often try to get the latest models and replace their showers now and then.
- Personal preferences
Sometimes when people buy a new house or move to a new home on rent, they might fight the type of shower that is not to their liking. e.g., Maybe the shower is wall fixed, and you want a flexible handset shower. In such cases, people might want to change the shower to suit their style and preferences or ask the landlord to get it changed.
- Low water pressure
Sometimes due to clogging or damage, the water may not leak or stop entirely, but it will not allow the water to flow with its full pressure. If cleaning the showerhead doesn’t solve this issue, it is often best to change it or the entire shower system entirely.
- Mold and health hazards
Over time, the mold accumulates inside and over the shower head and pipes. Mold can be bad for health and cause all kinds of health issues. Trying to clean the showerhead and the external parts may not solve the problem, and mold might be inside the pipes and small parts of the shower system, which might be difficult or impossible to clean. So it’s better to change the shower to prevent health hazards.
