When done, simply remove the bag (careful not to get any vinegar on your or worse, in your eye), and dump down the drain. Yes, it will smell for a few minutes but shortly thereafter you’ll notice no smell. If you want to be super sassy, throw some baking soda down your drain before you dump out the vinegar and you’ve now also cleaned our your drain in the process (go you!). Let the shower head run hot water for a minute before getting in, you’ll marvel at your handiwork; it will run like new!
Open or Enclosed? There are two options for building a larger, two-person shower: enclosed or open. Open showers have glass panels or glass block walls, for example, that run up to around the 7-foot mark, and then have the remaining space up to the ceiling open, thus venting steam. Alternatively you can build a completely enclosed shower, with the panels or block wall running all the way to the ceiling. Another option would be purchasing a pre-manufactured walk-in shower kit with its own pan and panels that will fit into the space you have in mind for the shower. As far as size goes, two of the most common sizes are 3-feet by 5-feet and 4-feet by 6-feet; there are no minimum requirements. It is whatever the couple in question feels comfortable with as far as space goes.
If you’ve been experiencing a blockage, and I don’t mean the kind that requires more fibre in your diet, consider cleaning your shower head to improve water flow and give you a better shower experience. Basically, a shower head (like mine, pictured in this post), is constantly spouting water out, every day at your beck and call. Naturally, water has calcium and other mineral deposits which over time can (and will) clog faucets, showerheads and coffeemakers (have you seen our blog post on cleaning a Keurig yet?). This isn’t harmful per se, it just slows the flow. It constipates, if you will, your system.
Steam Shower. If you are building an enclosed unit, consider adding steam generators to further add a layer of uniqueness to your two person shower. The generators need to be factored into the plumbing for the shower, since they are installed during the same stage of the construction, and wired into the electrical for the home. This also requires a licensed plumber or electrician before you can use the generators and cover the walls with finish material.
