Consider a walk-in shower. You may have heard of a walk-in closet, but what about a walk-in shower? This bathing atmosphere offers lots of space, as it isn’t bound by any walls or doors. Your shower essentially disappears into your interior design. A walk-in shower can maximize on space in your bathroom and is great for those with mobility issues, as there are no ledges to climb over.
For most shower heads, water pressure fluctuates between 40 and 60 psi. Luckily, hardware stores sell testers that screw onto the shower arm in place of the shower head so that you can determine your home’s water pressure before buying a new one. Low water pressure typically results from leaks, clogs and old pipes that are wider than half an inch in diameter, experts say. Lon Libsack, owner of Shower and Bath Connection in Tempe, Arizona, says flow restrictors that lower water usage also cause poor pressure. “At the end of the day, you either have to try to purchase a product that has the highest gallon per minute or remove the flow restrictors to achieve. that same amount of volume,” he says.
There are many corrosive products that are out there claiming to blast away calcium, lime and rust (catch my drift?) which I’d never allow in my house. Certainly, all you need to dissolve this build up is a good soaking in some plain white vinegar. The acids in vinegar naturally break down limescale and rust and allow your shower heads to work like new again. You can also use this trick for cleaning and unclogging faucets.
