The shower head refers to the shower head. While the shower hose is the connector that connects the shower head to the faucet. With the growth of the market, shower columns and shower screens are more and more popular. Of course, these are inseparable from a high quality shower hose. Then what is the material and what are the common sizes?

Shower hose materials

In general, there are 3 kinds of bath hose. They are PVC hose, rubber hose and metal hose.

PVC shower hose

PVC shower pipe is flexible and soft. Thus the hose is more easier to install and distribute. Besides, the inner and outer wall of PVC hose are smooth. Then the water can flow without any barrier. In addition, the PVC bath hose adopts special PVC material, thus it can resist corrosion. For daily use, it has the best advantage that it is more cheaper than rubber hoes and metal hose.

Shower rubber hose

Rubber hose adopts EPDM in general. Thus it has excellent aging resistance. Besides, it can resist cold and hot water. In addition, rubber hoses have great elasticity. Thus although we stretch the hose during shower, it will not crack and fail. At the same time, there will never be leakage problem. Compare to PVC hose, rubber hose has a longer service life. But of course, the price will be higher.

Metal hose

Metal hose for shower in more and more popular these years. Because it has the unique property that PVC hose and rubber hose don’t have. First, it has much better temperature resistance. While it can bear max 400℃. When you hold a PVC hose or rubber on your hand, the hot water may hurt you. But you should never worry about that with a metal hose. Second, flexible metal hose pipe has excellent corrosion resistance. However, the price of stainless steel hose is very high.
