Welke regendouche kiezen?

A rain shower can be a luxurious and relaxing addition to your daily shower experience. But with so many options on the market, it can be overwhelming to decide which rain shower will best suit your needs.

In this blog, we, as experts, will tell you everything you need to know to make the right choice. We'll cover several important aspects of buying a rain shower, including what to look for, water usage, benefits, and how to choose a water-saving rain shower. Let's start!

What should you pay attention to when buying a rain shower?

Before you buy a rain shower, there are several important aspects that you should take into account. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

What is needed for a rain shower?

A rain shower consists of a large shower head that hangs above you, making it seem as if you are standing under a gentle rain shower. To install a rain shower, you must have a shower system that is suitable for ceiling mounting and can provide sufficient water pressure. In addition, you must ensure that your bathroom is the right height to use the rain shower comfortably.

The water pressure of the boiler

One of the most important factors when choosing a rain shower is the water pressure. A rain shower usually requires higher water pressure than a standard shower head to provide an optimal rain experience. Make sure that the water pressure in your home is sufficient for the rain shower to function properly. 95% of households have more than enough pressure. Are you considering an extra large rain shower? For example of 40 or 50 cm, check it just to be sure.

The water consumption

When choosing a rain shower, it is also important to take water consumption into account. Rain showers generally use significantly more water than standard shower heads. That is why a water-saving rain shower is definitely recommended, which we will come back to later in this guide.

The size of the rain shower head

Rain shower heads are available in different sizes. The bigger the shower head, the more rainy experience you will have. But keep in mind that a larger shower head can also use more water. Choose a size that suits the size of your shower and your personal preference.

The height of the bathroom

The height of your bathroom ceiling is crucial when installing a rain shower. The shower head must be mounted at a sufficient height for comfortable showering. Carefully measure the height of your bathroom before purchasing a rain shower.

The style of your bathroom

In addition to functionality, it is also important that the rain shower matches the style of your bathroom. Rain showers are available in different designs and finishes, from modern to classic. Choose a style that matches the overall design of your bathroom. Popular colors are often chrome, black or (brushed) gold.

Number of jets of the hand shower head

Some rain showers come with a hand shower head with different jet types. This can be useful if you also want to use the rain shower as a hand shower. Check the number of jets and functions of the hand shower head before making a choice. EcoRain hand showers always have multiple jets to increase comfort.

The quality of the material

The quality of the material is important for the durability and lifespan of the rain shower. Choose a rain shower made from high-quality materials such as stainless steel or brass to ensure that it can withstand long-term use and moisture in the bathroom. Brands often save on material use, but beware of this. The right choice of material ensures a long lifespan, without corrosion and extra comfort. EcoRain rain showers are therefore always equipped with stainless steel 304, high-quality brass, electroplating and multiple layers of coating. It is not without reason that we provide a standard 5-year warranty.

What does a rain shower consume?

A frequently asked question when choosing a rain shower is how much water it actually uses. The answer depends on several factors, such as water pressure, shower head size and shower duration.

The water consumption of a rain shower can vary from approximately 8 to 20 liters per minute, depending on the settings and the size of the shower head. In general, rain showers use more water than standard shower heads, but you can reduce water consumption by opting for a water-saving rain shower.

Choose a water-saving rain shower

If you want to enjoy the luxury of a rain shower without wasting a lot of water unnecessarily, you can consider choosing a water-saving rain shower. Water-saving rain showers are specially designed to reduce water consumption without sacrificing the shower experience.

What is an economical rain shower?

The benefits of a rain shower

Rain showers have several advantages over traditional shower heads. Here are some reasons why many people choose a rain shower:

  1. Relaxation and luxury : A rain shower offers a relaxing and luxurious shower experience. The feeling of warm water falling on you like a gentle rain can reduce stress and provide a soothing experience.

  2. Greater coverage : The wide shower head of a rain shower provides greater water coverage, covering your entire body with water. This can be especially nice if you want to warm up after a long day or an intense workout.

  3. Stylish design : Rain showers often have an elegant and stylish design that gives your bathroom a modern look.

  4. Adjustable Rain Shower Head : An adjustable rain shower head is useful because you can adjust the height and angle of the shower head to your personal preference. This way you can create the perfect shower experience.

How much does a rain shower cost?

The price of a rain shower can vary greatly depending on the brand, size, material and features. In general, rain showers are in a higher price range than standard shower heads because of their luxurious appearance and functions.

A complete rain shower can start at around €175, while prices for premium models can reach several thousand euros. It's important to consider your budget when choosing a rain shower, but remember that an investment in quality can translate into a better shower experience and longer product life.

How much pressure do you need for a rain shower?

The ideal water pressure for a rain shower varies between 1.5 and 3.0 bar. This ensures that the rainy experience is optimal and the water is evenly distributed over the shower head. If the water pressure is too low, the rain shower cannot function properly and you may not get the desired effect.

It is important to check the water pressure in your home before purchasing a rain shower. If your water pressure is too low, consider installing a water pump to increase the pressure and enjoy an optimal rain experience.
