“Mommy, this water is too cold.”
“Mommy, this water is too hot.”
As a parent, how many times have you heard your child say this about their shower water? If you’re like me, the answer is one too many. No matter how hard you try it’s not easy to get the perfect water temperature. If you’re tired of playing the temperature guessing game, there’s a new shower head I recently tried out that makes things a whole lot easier.
The Delta Temp2O 6 Setting Shower Head has a very cool feature that takes the guess-work out of shower water temperature. An LED digital temperature display lets you know the exact temperature of the water. What’s even better is that the various temperature ranges are also color-coded.
So, as soon as you turn on the shower, you’ll most likely see the display in blue with a temperature reading.
As soon as you start turning it up a notch, you’ll see the temperature rise digit by digit. You’ll also see the display change to a magenta color. This is usually the zone we’re in when my kids are in the shower. For us, this water is in the 80-90 degree range.
If you really want to turn up the heat…literally…you’ll see the display turn to red.
This water is extremely warm (over 100 degrees) and is probably not what you want to have for your child or for yourself for that matter. The great thing about this is if you or your child accidentally turns the temperature knob too much, the red display immediately lets you know the water is at one of its highest temperatures without anyone getting hurt by touching the water.
When I introduced the shower head to my kids, I let them know about the color-coded system right away. As a mom, this is the best feature. Now, even my four-year-old daughter knows not to get in if she sees the blue or red light.
“Mommy, we want the purple light. Right?” she asks me. You know you have a family-friendly product that does its job when even a four-year-old gets the idea.
While children can’t really enjoy the different shower head settings, adults certainly can. You can choose from Full Body, Full Spray with Massage, Massaging, Shampoo Rinsing, Shampoo Rinsing with Massage, and Soft Drench. The Massaging setting is a nice touch, especially if you’ve been picking up Barbie shoes or Legos all day long!
The Delta Temp2O 6 Setting Shower Head is a useful addition to your bathroom. The safety setting that the LED display provides makes it family-friendly and practical while the different shower head settings give an extra bonus for mom and dad.
