The shower hose is the flexible adapter that connects the shower head or hand shower to the tap. As well as optical aspects, there are also price differences which are due to the use of different materials. As well as top-class shower hoses in stainless steel, Villeroy & Boch also offers high-quality models in plastic.
A shower hose connects the shower head and hand shower. The long hose is flexible and can move easily in different directions. Together with the shower head, the hose is the most important element in showers, shower trays and baths. It allows you to enjoy a hot shower before or after a demanding day.
The shower hose or pull-out spray should be high quality and made from a robust material. Otherwise holes and cracks will appear and quickly cause leaks. The classic metal pull-out spray is high-quality and durable. But good plastic materials now offer a long lifespan too. A high-quality plastic pull-out spray adapts to every movement without twisting and is very easy to care for.
As well as functionality, design also plays an important role. A bathroom is a place for wellness and relaxation. So it is important for that all elements harmonise perfectly. In the case of a metal shower hose, an additional plastic cover is recommended. This will create a smooth and hygienic surface, and will also eliminate the risk of injuries. A chrome film cover on a shower hose, for example, will coordinate with a chrome tap and spray. The shiny metal design will integrate elegantly and timelessly in any bathroom.
If you prefer a more puristic look, a white hose is a perfect choice for your shower or bath. It will coordinate perfectly with a white shower head and light-coloured bathroom tiles, for example from our ABERDEEN, BACK HOME or BELLAGIO collections. For contrasting highlights, add trend colours such as red, blue, green or gold.
A pull-out spray can be short or long This will depend on your shower and showering habits. Do you shower in a shower cabinet or in the bath, standing up or sitting down? Does your shower have a shower holder that you can use to push the pull-out spray and shower head up or down? The length of the shower hose will always depend on the individual bathroom situation.
Important: To ensure optimum installation of your new hand shower hose and tap, check the connection before buying. Many shower taps have a 1/2 inch thread which is compatible with most shower hoses. A few have a 3/4 inch thread. Adapters are available to allow connection to 1/2 inch hoses.
Villeroy & Boch shower hoses combine functionality and design, and will add a perfect finishing touch to your shower or bath. If you are planning to buy a pull-out spray, Villeroy & Boch offers a wide selection of different shower hoses and pull-out sprays made from high-quality durable materials – for every quality requirement and style.
