I have noticed over the time our new showerhead (now 4 years old) has stopped “raining”.
The holes have become partially blocked with calcium deposits which causes the water streams to shoot off in all directions.
My first attempt to fix the problem was to massage the rubber ends on each hole with the tip of my finger. It helped but not enough.
My second attempt was to hang a bagful of white vinegar over the showerhead. I tied the bag to the showerhead with a rubber band.
Unfortunately the vinegar seemed to be hanging too low to really cover the showerhead so I attached 2 more rubber bands from the shower stem and used them to hold a small piece of wood under the bag which forced the vinegar onto the holes.
After about half an hour of soaking the showerhead the water was running straighter in a more rain-like direction.
I had to plan and scheme to make the 2 showers in our new bathrooms zero threshold entries.
Since they have been finished for a couple of years now I can definitely say they were the right way to go.
While we don’t use the one in the conservatory much at this time it is a neat looking design which works well.
Our everyday shower in the master suite is used multiple times each day.
There is no water leakage issue. The floor and surround are easy to clean.
I can recommend going to the extra trouble of installing a curbless shower especially if someone in the household uses a walker or wheelchair. Those are not yet our issues but we’ll be prepared if they ever arise.
Now we’re almost in September, the month to get focused and restarted. I don’t have any children heading back to school but September seems to be a time of new beginnings.
Sug has been helping with all the projects in the house and has now decided to keep the house spotless. Her exertion is our gain. There are some people who like to clean house. I, on the other hand, like having cleaned. Recently clearing the dust has put me into respiratory arrest but I’m feeling much improved.
Charlie and I are heading to the UK for 12 days. That should be plenty of high-quality, energy-packed entertainment.
When we return from London we need to get busy sending out invitations for the dedication of The Chapel at The Glade. It won’t actually take place until October but we must get in touch with a long list of friends.
I’m hoping to hear from our carpenter who I’ve contracted to put a railing around our second-story deck.
Totally finish all the projects we’ve been working on all summer.
