Have you ever tried turning on the shower and finding the water current too strong and painful? When people imagine the water flowing from their shower heads, they usually envision the rain, something gentle yet refreshing.
Although waterfalls are also refreshing, bathing under a shower that has the strength of one could also be uncomfortable instead of refreshing. What people actually want is a flow of water that has the right strength enough to allow water to wash off dirt from the skin or to rinse people's soapy hair in.
A lot of people have installed pumps just to increase the pressure that low flow shower head from the supply to the shower. This has a lot of advantages in many areas and people enjoy a lot of benefits from a large flow of water from the shower. However there could be a lot of disadvantages.
It is true that with more pressure people are able to maximize the amount of water, and they get enough water supplies. The problem comes when people fail to control the amount of water flowing out of their shower heads. Instead of getting the right amount of water for their bath, they may get more water than they need and of course this waste does not come unaccounted.
When people are also mixing the temperature of the water, they would not want to have the hot water just spraying out of the shower head before people can even move aside. Mixing the temperature does not require a large amount of water. People can do it with just a few amount of water coming from the shower head so the control of the flow of water is very important.
Although people can benefit from a larger flow of water, it can also apply to showers that less is more. Other than being able to control the strength of the flow of water, people can also get to save more water. This means more water supply and less bills to worry about.
