Having a brand-new shower head is probably the best feelings in the world because nothing beats a refreshing shower at the end of the day. If it’s too cold outside, a shower will get you all warmed up and relax your muscles, whereas showering during hot weather can cool you down and removing that unpleasant sticky skin sensation. And when it comes to choosing a new shower head, few products can really beat the quality and utility of a Moen. What can a Moen shower head do for you, you ask? Well, let’s solve that mystery together!
How to Choose a Moen Shower Head
Moen is a shower head manufacturer that has been in business long enough to know what a high-quality product should look like. They make some of the highest quality shower heads that money can buy, including a line of digital shower systems that are absolutely impressive. Since technology innovations are here to make our lives easier, why wouldn’t you invest in a voice-controlled shower head?
Even if you don’t choose any of these fancy shower head, Moen still sells your classic shower head, but made with quality materials that lead up to a durable and reliable product. From easy docking to magnetic shower head, Moen has plenty of good products to offer. However, you should first find out more about what features are important when looking for a new shower head so that you can determine if this brand’s products can meet your needs.
Flow rate and pressure
These two factors will determine the quality of your showering experience because rinsing off your hair and body with low water pressure is a real nuisance. Water pressure is measured is PSI, while flow rate is indicated in GPM. A higher GPM will indicate that the shower head can release a decent amount of water for a comfortable shower.
A quality shower head will have an impact on the way you shower, so you will have to choose between different types of shower heads. For instance, some shower heads sold by Moen are fixed, which means they will stay mounted on the wall and you have both your hands free to wash your body more efficiently. On the other hand, you have your handheld shower head which, even if they keep one hand occupied, make it easier to apply water on all areas of your body. Typically, a shower head has multiple spray patterns and the one you choose will determine your showering experience. For example, rainfall patterns cover a wider area, while jet sprays are considered to be more soothing.
The design of your future shower head is also important if you want your bathroom to look in a certain way. Thankfully, Moen has designed shower head with a variety of different finishes and available in plenty of shapes and styles, giving you at least one product that will surely match whatever type of interior design you went for when you set up your bathroom.
Believe it or not, there are plenty of shower heads that are designed to help you save water and keep your water bills as low as possible, and Moen seems to have thought about that as well. They have plenty of shower heads that are EPA certified, which makes them efficient in terms of saving water.
How to Install a Moen Shower Head
Ok, so you’ve got a new shower head and you’re not sure what to do next. The good news is that these products were design to be very user-friendly, which means that it’s very easy to install them even if without the help of a plumber. However, if you don’t have the least bit of plumbing knowledge, maybe it’s best you turn to professional assistance. We’re mostly saying this because we’re about to show you some simple steps on how to install your Moen shower head, but these rules don’t apply to every model (even if they do apply to most of them).
First of all, here is how you typically install a new fixed shower head:
- By using a wrench, unscrew the old shower head and remove it.
- Put your new Moen shower head in place of the old one and, using the same wrench, screw it in place of the old one.
- Make sure that you screw it tightly to make sure there are no leaks.
- In case you do notice any leaks, you might have to use plumber’s tape to seal the threads.
If you purchased a handheld shower head and are not sure how to install it, here are the steps to do so:
- The first step requires screwing the handheld shower head mount on your existing shower arm.
- Locate the flexible hose and connect it to the shower head mount.
- Make sure that the connections are tight (you can tighten them by hand most of the times).
- Grab the other end of the hose and connect it to the handheld shower head.
- Put the shower head into the mount and turn on the water at low pressure to check for leaks.
