Bargain Shower Head? Maybe not.

Shower heads are one of the essential components of a bathroom. They provide the necessary water pressure for a comfortable and enjoyable shower. However, many people buy a cheap, bargain shower head thinking they are saving money. Still, in reality, they end up costing more in the long run. This article will discuss why a bargain shower head is not a good investment and what to consider before making a purchase.

Bargain Shower Heads Produce Poor Water Pressure

The most common problem with bargain shower heads is inadequate water pressure. A low-quality shower head often has smaller holes, restricting water flow and resulting in a weak, unsatisfactory shower experience. In contrast, a high-quality shower head will have larger holes, which allow more water to flow through, resulting in a more substantial, more enjoyable shower.


Low-cost shower heads use low-quality materials prone to wear and tear. They often last for a short period before needing to be replaced. In contrast, a high-quality shower head uses durable materials that will last many years. Low quality means you will have to replace a bargain shower head several times over the lifespan of a high-quality shower head, which will cost you more in the long run.

Poor Design

Bargain shower heads are often not designed with ergonomics in mind. They may be uncomfortable to hold, and the water may be delivered in an awkward direction, making it challenging to wash certain areas of your body. In contrast, high-quality shower heads are comfortable to hold and provide a satisfying shower experience.

Inadequate Warranty

Another issue with these types of shower heads is the lack of a warranty. Most bargain shower heads come with a short warranty or no warranty, so if the shower head breaks or stops working, you’ll have to pay to replace it. In contrast, high-quality shower heads often come with an extended warranty, which means you won’t have to pay to replace the shower head if something goes wrong.

No Bargain Shower Heads

A bargain shower head may seem like a good investment. Still, it’s essential to consider this purchase’s long-term cost and consequences. Poor water pressure, increased water bills, a short lifespan, poor design, and inadequate warranty are just a precursor for trouble down the line.  A High Sierra Shower Head is made from the highest quality materials and feels good!  So purchase a High Sierra today and enjoy your shower.
