If you are planning on redecorating your bathroom, you should really think about installing a digital shower system, as it is replete of features that can make your shower experience much more pleasant; therefore, it is often considered to be one of the ideal options for replacing a typical shower. It is controlled by a click of a button, with easy installation and programming.
Top Features of Digital Shower Systems
A digital shower system has a variety of different features. First, this type of system has a programming function that allows you to program the temperature and pressure of the water. A digital shower system is remotely controlled by a small processor box. There are some of these devices that allow you to program it with different temperatures. This means that with the push of a button you can attain the perfect shower. The basic digital showers systems work in much the same way as a normal shower, but with the convenience of operation.
Since there is water temperature control, the water coming out of it will have the right temperature from the time the shower is turned on, meaning that you will not have to wait until water reaches the desired temperature, and thus, there will be no loss of water, which is a great thing if you think that going ‘green’ is the route that we should take as a society.
Exposed and Hidden Digital Shower Systems
Typically, this type of system is exposed. This means that the water shower bar is used as a pipe. Having a digital shower exposed means you will have little difficulty in mounting it. There will be no damage to the tiles of the bathroom or walls. A hidden digital shower works the same way as a traditional shower in which the tubes are mounted behind walls and only the shower head and controls are visible. Obviously, this requires more labor to install. Finding a hidden digital shower is difficult because most manufacturers only manufacture exposed digital showers.
Installing a digital exposed shower only takes about two hours, but to install a hidden shower, it will take much longer, usually one day, and another day to repair the walls and tiled floors. Both types of digital showers must be installed by a plumber.
What Kind of Plumbing System Is Required?
It is important that the plumbing system in your house has a gravity feed system. This is because digital shower systems have pumps that are equipped for more water pressure. If you do not know what kind of pipe system you have, ask a plumber.
What Is the Price of Digital Shower Systems?
There is a wide range of pricing options for digital showers, from about $300 USD to over $2000 USD. It really depends on how much you want to spend, and the features that you are looking for. The best digital shower systems come with some special features incorporated such as a steam function, color therapy, background music (radio), temperature control, and water jets for the body.
