A recent innovation that adds more than convenience and enjoyment to one of the daily activities of personal hygiene is the digital shower. With a digital shower, you can save time, energy and water, by saving the setting in memory so that no readjustments of temperature and pressures are needed. The settings can easily be recalled at the push of a button, the savings can be significant if there are a large number of people involved.
The water is usually fed from both hot and cold sources and mixed by together by an electronically controlled process that is very precise and repeatable. The water is then fed to the shower-head when it reaches the desired temperature. The shower-head can be of almost any form, as long as it can support the flow rate of the water that designated by the user.
The processor that is used is specifically designed for the water heating system, and it is important to determine whether the heating unit is a gravity- fed system which is usually lower in pressure delivery than Combi-boiler units. Installations can vary not only by manufacturer, but the features of each model can also vary. A number of installation types are available, depending on manufacturer and model.
The digital shower can either be exposed, with the supply lines concealed in the riser or they can be concealed with the lines built into the wall. There may also be options available to vary the style of the shower, which may be fixed overhead, or adjustable, or even detachable hand-held telephone shower heads. Manufacturers may also offer remotely controlled shower that operate on wireless technology.
You can exercise total control of your shower experience with a digital shower, as you know precisely what your settings are, and you can easily read the measurements on the large LCD panel. Installation is easy and operating the shower may even be easier. The digital processor can be located up to 10 meters away from the remote control unit.
Some very unique and handy features can be included in the shower experience. The water flow can be paused temporarily for two minutes without the need to reset the controls. This can be a handy feature that can be used when you shampoo or condition your hair, brush your teeth, or shave. You can also manage your time, and conserve water and energy, by setting a pre-determined time to be spent in the shower. Engaging the auto shut-off feature that may be included in some models, shuts the shower off as soon as the set time expires, so that you do not spend more time in the shower than is deemed to be necessary.
Digital showers can not only be functional, but they can also be very stylish and complement the decor of almost any bath. With a minimalistic design and attractive styling, the showers are supplied in a variety of corrosion resistant finishes that make it a joy to handle.
