Air Induction Rain Shower Heads – The Next Step in Shower Technology?
We’ve all had bad showers at some point. You step in to find the water lukewarm at best, and with all the pressure of a leaky sprinkler. And afterwards, you just don’t feel clean. Some of the best showers are the ones that have pressure to spare, offering that blissful massage-like showering sensation. Luckily, recent innovations in shower head technology means you can take this experience home with you.The average Australian household uses about 900 litres of water each and every day – and showers account for roughly 22% of this amount. Clearly, something needs to be done to reduce the amount of water we consume in the household and the bathroom, and the way we shower is a good place to start.
So, What is Air Induction?
Air induction technology has been widely harnessed by the world’s leading bathroom brands in places like America, Germany and Japan.
Put simply, Air Induction rain shower heads inject air into the water flow, creating larger water droplets and a greater level of water pressure. As water flows out though the nozzles, a valve in the centre of the shower head pulls air in, which is then compressed by the vacuum created by the water flow. For the bathroom-goer this means a stronger flow, better water coverage, and ultimately lower water consumption. By forcing air directly into the water flow, these types of shower head use up less water but create more pressure – definitely a welcome feature for people who find themselves with limited water pressure at home. In fact, recent tests show that this can give as much as a 33% increase in water flow rate.
Is There Really a Need for Air Induction Rain Shower Heads? What are the Benefits?
Better Water Pressure for a Stronger Shower
So to start, pressure. With better shower pressure at lower water flows, you get a stronger, more refreshing washing experience. And as an added benefit, the air induction causes larger droplets of water (just like rain), meaning you get that lovely massage effect from your shower. This also means it uses less water to do it. In the past, a shower head’s quality came down to how much water it could push through at once, but with new innovations like this, you can now get a much more powerful water flow by using air – a free and readily available resource.
Save Water by Using Less
Secondly, let’s talk about water consumption. On average, a 10-minute shower takes up about 200 litres of water – about as much as a full bathtub. These types of rain shower heads can inject over two litres of air for every 11 litres of water, helping to save water consumption by up to a third. This means you’ll see smaller water and electricity bills, and the ability to save up to 60 litres of water for each shower or up to 22,000 litres of water per person per year.
Affordable and Easy to Install
And finally, this is an affordable option. Far too many high-end shower heads mean a big investment, with adjustments needed to your pipes and a great deal of inconvenience. Instead, with an Air Induction Rain Shower Head you can simply screw it on to your existing shower attachment or connect it with a shower arm extension, and start using it straight away. So, you’re getting a premium shower experience, but at a much more reasonable price. On top of this, cleaning is a breeze – simply rub your finger over the nozzles every once in a while to keep them clear of any limescale or calcium build up.
