Shower Head Prices in Kenya


The world is evolving day by day and we have found new ways of bathing with hot water using shower heads. Traditionally we used to heat water using water heaters/kettles, although In Kenya having one was considered a luxury. Most of us can agree that our parents used to naturally heat water for bathing by placing a bucket full of water outside and the sun will then heat the water. However, when shower heads were introduced to the Kenyan Market that narrative changed. In this article, I will explain more about shower heads and some of the factors affecting the pricing of shower heads.

Factors That Affect the Price of Shower Heads in Kenya

There are different types of shower heads in Kenya, with different prices. What will determine which shower head you will use is whether you live in your own home or a rented home. In most rental houses you will find a shower head already installed. Most of these shower heads are the cheapest in the market, due to this most tenants are finding the need to install high-quality shower heads that will better their bathing experience. Some of the factors affecting the price of shower heads in Kenya are:

Units with a bigger shower head produce more water, making your bath experience better.

4. Low-pressure Capability

Some of the cheaper shower heads are not able to work with and the pressure of water in the pipe is not high, you might be able to low water pressure. For instance, if you are living in a place where there is no water tank your shower head is not able to heat the water and yet it is still good or new.
