Showers

Showers are bathroom fixtures designed to allow for bathing with sprayed water. Consisting of a showerhead with a nozzle for adjustable water pressure and a floor drain, showers are most commonly paired as fixed wall-mounted elements above a bathtub. Showerheads are also designed as hand-held hoses that can be mounted and unmounted from a wall to allow the user to spray the shower in hard to reach places. Showers are a more efficient use of water for hygienic uses than bathtubs with nearly half the water use on average.
