Comparing water saver shower heads
Two types of water saving shower heads
Aerated low flow shower heads
Aerated water saver shower heads are generally the most common on the market today. These low flow shower heads pressurize the water flow with the addition of circulated air.
This is done through an air chamber within the shower head and before the release of the water flow. Aerated shower heads provide the desired low flow of water with a comfortable amount of water pressure.
Aerated models are extremely inexpensive, costing anywhere from $4 to $25 each. It's important to note that aerated models do have one negative. They can at times cool the water temperature, due to the water circulating within the air chamber.
But keep in mind that this potential temperature drop is minimal at best, and does not occur with all aerated water saving shower heads.
Non aerated low flow shower heads
Non aerated water saving shower heads are becoming more common on the market as of late. These models further pressurize by pulsating the flow of water through separate streams, often referred to as jet streams.
These jet streams serve as vacuum chambers and on most non aerated water saving shower heads the water pressure can be adjusted for further comfort.
Non aerated low flow shower heads are considerably more ideal for those massage loving shower seekers; due to the enhanced comfort level provided by the further pressurized multiple jet streams.
It's important to note that in general non aerated water saving shower heads are a little more expensive than aerated models. However they are still inexpensive, costing anywhere from $10 to $80 each.
