Dual Shower Head vs Second Shower Head

If you are considering adding a second shower head to your bathroom, it is important for you to know the difference between both of them.

A dual shower head has two shower heads in one unit. This means you don’t need to install two fixtures.

On the other hand, if you want a second shower head, you can buy one that is separate from your in-wall head. This might require a new water line to be run to your shower’s ceiling and the purchase of a new shower unit.

The second shower head is a great way to get more enjoyment out of your morning and evening showers. However, installing an extra shower head does come with some advantages and disadvantages that you’ll want to consider before installing an extra shower head.

The advantages of installing a secondary apparatus include:  

  • Saving water by using two heads at once instead of one; 
  • Increased pressure from both sprays; 
  • Having more control over where the water sprays, as well as how hard or soft its force can be. 

On the other hand, there are also some disadvantages to consider when deciding if you want another showerhead in your home: 

  • Adding a second shower head will decrease the water pressure
  • The cost of installing a second shower head is expensive
  • It can be difficult to adjust the temperature between two different showers depending on who is using it at what time

You know what they say, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. That’s why it may be wise to go with dual shower heads instead of adding that second shower head.
