Hydrotherapy isn’t limited to hot tubs. Think about having all the advantages of a whirlpool bath translated to your daily shower. You might not have the time for a luxurious soak every single day, but when you install a tower shower you can enjoy the same spa-level comforts and health benefits in minutes.
Tower showers, also known as shower panels, combine the functionality of a regular overhead shower with a series of body jets. The massage action of these multiple shower heads boosts circulation, loosens tight muscles, soothes sore joints, and ups the overall enjoyment factor exponentially. If you have chronic back troubles, a good tower shower can be a game-changer. You can also choose a model with an additional hand-set for the ultimate in showering flexibility.
The installation of these products is surprisingly straightforward. In the past, if you wanted to add additional body jets to your shower setup, you had to install them individually: a considerably complex plumbing job. With a tower shower, the entire unit connects to a single plumbing source, just like a regular shower, and mixes the hot and cold water for you. You’ll need good water pressure to get the most out of your panel, so you may want to look into adding an additional power shower pump for maximum spray.
Tower showers work well in many types of setups, including enclosures, shower-baths, and wetrooms.
The Designer Ranges
Tower showers are both indulgent and practical, and they make a serious design statement. The sleek, modernist look of many units fits beautifully in the upscale environment of the contemporary luxury bathroom. Top designers have contributed dozens of gorgeous, minimalist designs in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. You can choose from recessed or concealed thermostatic shower panels for a smooth, understated effect, or go for one of the more stylized units for a fun, futuristic look.
