A Brief History of the Shower Head

David Malcolm - Monday, February 15, 2016


You could write whole books (and people have) on the history of the shower. But the history of the shower head itself is very brief.

It's not because shower heads are new. Modern shower heads have been around for nearly 250 years. It's because there hasn't been much development over their history.

"Antique" Shower Head Proves Some Things Don't Change

Recently, I came across an antique, 1940's vintage, all-brass shower head offered for sale on Ebay. I was amazed at how closely it resembled today's ultra low flow shower heads, which are being manufactured by the millions in China (mostly out of plastic, of course) and distributed throughout the USA.

So I bought it to get a closer look.  More...
