Shower Panels comes in virtually all different shapes, sizes, colours, and finishes. This makes shopping for one very intimidating since they can cost anywhere from $100 to several hundred dollars. On top of this, a shower panel is generally a large fixture and can take up valuable floor space. Before you even begin shopping for a shower panel, it is important to know a few things. This will help you make the right choice when it comes time to buy a shower panel.
The first thing to know is that there are three main types of shower panels. The first two are more popular and the most commonly used. These include a shower panel tower and a shower pan. The third is not as popular and is a less common installation. If you are not a professional, then it is generally recommended that you avoid installing these types of panels. They do not come with any thermostat controls and often make use of plastic or metal heaters to keep the water at a comfortable temperature.
There are other features that are available on panels other than just thermostats and temperature controls. Some of these features include a thermostat that will allow you to manually control the flow of water from your shower head into your bath tub. This is a nice option if you have a larger bathroom and wish to have more freedom in how much water is flowing into your bathtub.
Another great feature on a shower panel is a fixed shower head mount. This is a good option if you have a large bathroom and wish to have a hand held shower in your bathroom. Many people choose a fixed shower head mount since they are typically more sturdy and easier to clean than most handheld models.
Finally, you may want to look at the additional specs for each item. These are specifications that pertain to the durability of the shower system itself, the performance of the water pressure, and the additional features available with the shower system. One of the most common examples of a durable material is a shower system that is made from durable materials such as acrylic or toughened glass. In addition, these shower systems generally come with some sort of thermostatic valve to protect the water pump and to prevent heated water from coming back out of the system into the room.
Extra features on shower panels generally fall into one of two categories. They can either be extra features that are only useful for cosmetic purposes or features that offer some type of health benefit. For example, many people opt to purchase massage jets into their shower panels to help alleviate back pain. Massage jets are essentially long wand like devices that run along the rail of the shower panel. When turned on, the massaging jets perform a variety of different movements that help to relieve back pain.
