Maximize Your Shower Flow with High Water Flow Shower Heads

February 20, 2023 | by Florence M. Eco Water Labs

A weak, unsatisfying shower can be extremely frustrating. Low water pressure can make it difficult to rinse off soap, shampoo, or conditioner, leaving you feeling unclean and uncomfortable. But there's no need to endure this unpleasant experience. You can easily improve water flow and pressure to get the luxury shower experience of your dream with the right solutions.

Here are some of the most common causes of low water pressure and the high water pressure solutions for showers that will help solve the problem:

Choose the Right Shower Head

When choosing high flow shower heads, looking for options specifically designed for high water flow is important. In Australia, shower heads that meet the maximum flow rate of 9 liters per minute are considered high water flow. Look for shower heads with broader spray patterns and larger water channels, allowing a more powerful flow of water. Rain shower heads, handheld shower heads, and high-pressure shower heads are excellent options for high water flow.

Check Your Water Pressure

Low water pressure can be a problem even with a high water flow shower head. The average water pressure in Australia is around 500 kPa. However, if your water pressure is too low, you may need to install a booster pump to increase water flow. Alternatively, you can look for shower heads designed for low water pressure.

Install Your Shower Head Correctly

Proper installation is key to maximizing your shower flow. Ensure your shower head is securely installed and free from leaks or obstructions. If your shower head leaks or is not installed correctly, it can significantly decrease the water flow. If you're not confident in your DIY skills, consider hiring a plumber to install your shower head.

Clean Your Shower Head Regularly

Over time, mineral deposits and other debris can build up in your shower head, which can cause clogs and reduce water flow. In Australia, this is particularly important because of the high levels of mineral deposits in the water. 

To maximize your shower flow, it's essential to clean your shower head regularly. Soaking your shower head in vinegar or using a specialized shower head cleaner can effectively remove any build-up and maintain optimal water flow.

Use a High Flow Shower Head in Combination with Other Water-Saving Techniques

While high water flow shower heads can enhance your showering experience, using them in combination with other water-saving techniques is essential. According to theAustralian Bureau of Statistics, the average daily household water consumption in Australia is approximately 340 liters per day. You can significantly reduce your daily water consumption by using water-saving techniques, such as taking shorter showers and installing a low-flow toilet.

Consider a Water Filter

As mentioned earlier, the mineral content in Australian water can be high, which can cause build-up in your shower head over time. Installing a water filter can reduce the amount of minerals in your water and extend the life of your shower head. It can also improve the overall quality of your water, making it taste and smell better.

Experiment with Different Spray Patterns

Many high water flow shower heads come with multiple spray patterns, such as massage, rain, or mist. Experimenting with different patterns can help you find the one that provides the most satisfying shower experience for you.

Check Your Water Heater

If your water heater is too small, it may not be able to keep up with the demand for a high water flow shower head. It's important to make sure your water heater is appropriately sized for your household's needs to ensure a consistent and efficient flow of water. If you're unsure about the size of your water heater, consider consulting a plumber or water heating specialist.


Are high water flow shower heads legal in Australia? 

Yes, high water flow shower heads are legal in Australia, as long as they meet the maximum flow rate of 9 liters per minute.

Can a high water flow shower head increase my water bill? 

Yes, using a high water flow shower head may increase your water bill if you don't use water-saving techniques. However, combining a high water flow shower head with other water-saving techniques can conserve water and reduce your bill.

Are there any water restrictions in Australia that would affect my use of a high water flow shower head? 

Yes, some areas in Australia have water restrictions that limit the amount of water you can use. Check with your local council to see any restrictions in your area.

Transform Your Shower Experience with High Water Flow Shower Heads

Incorporating high water flow shower heads into your daily routine can improve your overall well-being and lead to a more sustainable future. So, if you're ready to upgrade your shower experience, don't hesitate to explore your options and find the perfect shower head for your needs.
