All The Benefits Of Smart Showerheads Technology

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Most people don’t sit around and talk about their plumbing system or the latest showerhead technologies. Instead, we consider plumbing as old pipes, clogged toilets, and broken water heaters. Our plumbing system plays a significant role in the quality of our lives, but we rarely stop to think about it. When it comes to plumbing, there is a place of beauty, such as the latest technologies in faucets, fixtures, smart showerheads, and toilets. In the eighties and nineties, we settled for simple functions; however, since the turn of the century, we have now moved past “simple” and have demanded more from our plumbing and its latest technologies.

What could be more soothing than a hot shower? Many of us start our day with a hot shower and end it with one as well. Besides the warm water streaming down our bodies, what makes it so special? A showerhead that provides the right amount of water force without wasting the water would be the perfect combination.

What Is A Smart Showerhead, And Why Is It Called Smart?

A smart showerhead is a type of showerhead that uses advanced technology to provide a more personalized and efficient shower experience. They are called smart because they can connect to Wi-Fi, be controlled through a mobile app, and have various features that allow users to customize their shower settings to their preferences.

Some of the common features of smart showerheads include the following:

  1. Temperature control: Smart showerheads can adjust the water temperature based on the user’s preference.
  2. Water pressure control: Users can adjust the water pressure to their liking.
  3. Voice control: Some smart showerheads come with voice-activated controls, allowing users to turn the shower on or off and adjust the settings hands-free.
  4. Water conservation: Smart showerheads can help users conserve water by automatically turning off the water flow when the user steps away.
  5. LED lighting: Some smart showerheads have LED lighting that changes color based on the water temperature or user settings.

Overall, smart showerheads provide an enhanced shower experience tailored to the user’s preferences while promoting water conservation.

How Much Water Does A Smart Showerhead Use?

The amount of water a smart showerhead uses depends on the specific model and its features. However, most smart showerheads are generally designed to be more water-efficient than traditional showerheads. For example, some smart showerheads use advanced technologies like atomization or air injection to create a full, satisfying shower experience while using less water overall. Others may have features like flow restrictors or timed shut-offs that help users conserve water.

Some Smart Showerheads use 2.0 GPM Without Sacrificing Performance

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a standard showerhead typically uses 2.5 gallons of water per minute (gpm). However, WaterSense-certified showerheads (including some smart showerheads) get designed to use no more than 2.0 gpm without sacrificing performance. Overall, if water conservation is a concern, it’s worth checking the water usage specifications of specific smart showerheads.

Here are some of the latest smart showerheads and their features:

  1. Kohler Moxie Showerhead and Smart Speaker: This showerhead has a detachable smart speaker that you can control via voice commands. It has a powerful, full-coverage spray and can connect to Bluetooth-enabled devices.
  2. Moen Aromatherapy Showerhead: This smart showerhead has an aromatherapy feature that allows users to infuse essential oils into their shower experience. It also has multiple spray patterns and a magnetic docking system.
  3. Nebia by Moen Spa Shower: This showerhead uses advanced atomization technology to create a spa-like experience while using 45% less water than traditional showerheads. It has an adjustable height and a magnetic docking system.
  4. U by Moen Smart Shower: This smart shower system can be controlled via voice commands or through a mobile app. Users can set precise water temperature and flow rates and even create customized shower presets for multiple users.
  5. AquaDance High-Pressure 3-Way Rainfall Combo: This smart showerhead has a 3-way diverter that allows users to switch between a rainfall showerhead, a handheld showerhead, or both at the same time. It also has six different spray settings and a water-saving pause feature.

Overall, smart showerheads offer a range of features that can enhance the shower experience, from aromatherapy and spa-like spray patterns to precise temperature and flow control.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived.
