#532 When you find out your new place has a really good shower

It’s all about water pressure.

Honestly, getting a misty low pressure shower is a slightly damp nightmare.  You may as well spray yourself with a water bottle or shampoo your hair in the YMCA steam room at that point.

No, you want that high pressure spray down, you crave that high pressure spray down, you need that high pressure spray down. You know the one: it punches you in the heart, power blasts the armpit scum away, and turns your entire bathroom into a hot and steamy Chamber of Bliss.

Not much affects your day every day as much as a good shower. And it’s hard to fix a bad one. So when you find out your new place gives you a power-pumping start to the day, it’s time to close the door, strip right down, and get ready to get completely

  1. Oh my God! Yes! Having to run around just to get wet in the wimpy stream of a low-flow shower head is torture. Your poor arms get cramps from the time they spend suspended at your head, working tirelessly to remove the shampoo and conditioner.

    My parent’s house has water pressure that borders on breaking the skin. While not for the faint of heart (or those with extreme skin-sensitivity!), I have to say that I prefer that over a barely-spittin’ shower any time.

    1. something missing: …………so that idiots like you for can complain for I………

  2. Yep! So true. The shower at my boyfriend’s place has crappy water pressure, and it’s torture. That’ll have to be fixed!!

      1. LOL. Ya, I was about to publish a different article and then I saw Neil’s post and I couldn’t resist doing a shower pressure secret. :)

  3. Although taking out the flow restricter (or making it less restrictive) is a good option if you have low pressure in just the shower. If it’s the whole house you might want to consider relocating the water heater to the top floor of the house, adding a pump, or just cleaning out the pipes.

  4. Funny… I just moved to a new flat, and I’ve been telling everyone, that one of the best things is, that I now have water pressure and hot water.
    My last flat had a shower with no pressure. Taking a bath there was what it must feel like to be peed on by a pensionist with prostate problems.

    Hot water with pressure… AWESOME!

  5. This is why I LOVE staying over at other peoples’ houses..real showers! I live in the middle of nowhere where water pressure is non-existent so a bath is the only option.

  6. I have really long, thick hair and strong pressure is a must. When I moved in with hubby, his shower had the best water pressure. I loved it! Now, when we go look at houses to buy, I do actually check the water pressure in the shower.

  7. Or when you move to Korea and you find out your shower is literally in the middle of your bathroom. No curtain. No tub. The toilet paper roll does have a metal spray shield, which is awesome. Cleaning my bathroom has never been easier! Spray the heck out of everything!

  8. I love this and yes, the pressure makes the difference. It is that first shower after spending three months working at summer camps… the spray, the hot water, the shower consistantly running, and the pressure… AWESOME

  9. I totally agree: good water pressure is awesome. You know what else is awesome? Finding a cool website (this one) and going back through the archives and seeing ‘Tara is cute’ written on the fogged up mirror. AWESOME

  10. I have to say that good water pressure is second only to an amazingly huge bath tub!! Forget these dinky ones where you have to decide if your shoulders or your feet stay dry (and I’m only 5 1/2 feet!) Gimme a tub where I can sink down into the bubbles!!

    That being said (and rare), shower pressure is of utmost importance in daily life!! Before we moved to my current condo, I tried the showers… it was a deal-breaker at a few places!!

  11. We just finished renovating our bathroom. All new fixtures, new floor, new walls, brand new custom made shower surround (34″ X 54″) that is much bigger than the old one. The olny problem is much reduced water pressure. I have removed the water restrictors, but there must be another one hidden deep in the inside of the shower head. I keep looking, and may have to replace it, because a high pressure shower is indeed Awesome!

  12. Shower wonderful, but nothing like the bathtub full of bubbles!My three dogs love them!
    In my house the water pressure is mild and long in hot out, I usually go to the house of my boyfriend and his shower really is fantastic!
    Fantastic as this site, thanks for sharing!

  13. Back in undergrad, I spent quite a lot of time visiting my then-boyfriend at Ohio State. The bathroom in the girls dorm had THE BEST showers ever! They were like a firehose blasting hot-as-you-can-take-it water that never ended. I don’t miss the boyfriend, but man do I miss those showers!


  14. don’t worry about expiration dates–they’re only the day beyond which the mfr won’t _guarantee_ like-new freshness.

  15. I’m still looking. My apartment was weak, the basement suite i lived in a few years ago was pathetic, and my parents house actually has too much pressure for me even though i like it, it feels like i’m being jabbed by hot needles. I’m also tall so i’m looking for a tall shower.

  16. love the duck and panda pics as much as I love that in every house, past decade, we’ve had antique claw foot tubs with sunflower shower head; best of both worlds in 2 seperate washrooms!

  17. My Partner And I just recently put in a steam shower unit, finest thing we
    have bought in a while, children and relatives think
    it’s great, simply cannot see everybody returning to traditional
    showers anymore

    about the lives of our loved ones. In addition, many of
    the words used started to take on slightly
    different meanings, depending on the context in which they are used.
