    Michelle Troconis: Hi! I'm Michelle Troconis Product Manager for American Standard. Spray outlets are key component for any shower system and today I'm going to talk to you about the different options you have available to you when selecting them for your shower system.

    There are three different types of spray outlets Shower Heads, Hands Showers and Body Sprays.

    The first type of shower outlet Shower Heads are offered in three different types. Single function which sprays one type of spray pattern, multifunction which allows several different types of spray patterns and then lastly Rain Shower Heads which offer drenching rain spray pattern.

    The Second type of spray outlets are Hand Showers, like showers heads, hand showers are also available in single function and multifunction, but they also give additional benefits to the user.

    For instance it allows the user to direct the spray to specific areas for a concentrated therapeutic massage. It also gives added convenience for those households that have children elderly and pets for making showering and cleaning easier.

    And then, lastly they just make cleaning a shower much easier. There are three different types of mounting options for hand shower. There is shower on mount, a wall mount and then lastly a slide bar.

    The last type of spray outlets are body sprays, unlike like shower heads and hand shower they too are available as single function or multi-function. One additional option you should consider when selecting the body spray for your shower system is whether you want a traditional type of body spry or flush mount type of body spray.

    Body sprays are usually operated in groups of two or three at a time and they are mounted to the wall, so that way you can direct the water to the upper back and shoulders, the lower back and then sometimes the backs of the legs. And that's the basics of how to select the spray outlets for your shower system.

    Be sure to work with showroom consultant to make sure you're selecting the right spray outlet for your shower system.
