5 high-tech showerheads that will change the way you bathe

The only thing a showerhead must do is provide hot water and decent pressure. But that’s not the only thing a showerhead can do. The bathroom fixtures on this list are capable of doing everything from playing music to monitoring water consumption to immersing you in an LED light bath. Here are some of the coolest showerheads available.

The musical choice — Kohler’s Moxie Showerhead ($140)

Music just sounds better in the bathroom. If your amateur voice is listenable in the WC, imagine what actual musicians will sound like. The Kohler Moxie Rainhead brings music, news, audiobooks, and anything else you can listen to into the shower. The speaker plays music — or other audio — via Bluetooth and streams content from up to 35 feet away, meaning you don’t have to worry about your smartphone getting wet. The biggest drawback to the Moxie Showerhead is that the speaker has to be recharged. The speaker is easy to remove, however, and with a seven-hour battery, you’ll probably only have to charge it about once a week. Read more here.

The digital choice — Delta Faucet Temp20 ($55)

How long do you fiddle with your shower’s nozzle in an attempt to dial in the perfect temperature? A touch to the left and it’s too hot. A touch to the right and it’s too cold. With the Delta Faucet Temp20, you’ll know exactly how hot the water is before you step into the tub. This feature is so simple and so useful that we’re actually kind of surprised that it hasn’t found its way to more showerheads.

The Delta Faucet Temp20 display also glows different colors, depending on the temperature. A blue LED illuminates when the water is below 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7 degrees Celsius), a warm magenta accompanies temperatures between 81 and 110 (27.2 and 43.3), and a red light appears when the temperature hits 111 (43.9) or hotter. While it’s certainly a cool feature, it’s not always helpful, given the same color can cover a 30-degree temperature range.

The filtered option — Culligan Filtered Showerhead ($30)

The Culligan Filtered Showerhead is a low-budget option for those who have concerns about what’s in their water. This option promises to shower you with purified water, while letting you scroll through five different pressure settings. The settings include an concentrated full-body spray, as well as some pulse settings for a more massage-like experience. The filter reduces 99 percent of the chlorine, according to Culligan, which can dry out skin and hair. It might not be the most exciting product on the list, but it could give your hair a bit more bounce.

The low-flow option — High Sierra High-Efficiency Showerhead ($35)

You can change the world from your shower… or, at least you can help. High Sierra’s showerhead is a high-pressure option that also attempts to conserve water, providing you with a mere 1.5 gallons of water per minute. That’s a crazy small amount of water compared to old-school showerheads, which can use more than 5 gallons per minute, and newer showerheads like the aforementioned Kohler’s Moxie. The High Sierra makes the most out of its 1.5 gallons per minute, however, to give you decent water pressure during your shower. According to High Sierra, its showerhead can drop your water bill by as much as $50 per year, per person, and save 1,700 gallons of water when compared to a 2.5-gallons-per-minute model.

Amazon

The LED option — DreamSpa Color Changing Showerhead ($35)

The DreamSpa Color Changing Showerhead may not have a digital display like the Delta Faucet Temp20 listed above, but its color indicators are a little more precise. The DreamSpa showerhead issues a blue light when dealing with water under 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius), a green light when the water is between 95 and 108 (42.2), and a red light when it ranges somewhere between 109 and 122 (42.7 and 50). It will also flash red if the temperature goes any higher, so you’re not obligated to stick your hand under boiling water just to ensure it’s indeed too hot to handle.
