Cons: "Shower Review Pilot
- Shower's cleanliness is in
doubt because the toilet was definitely not cleaned prior to our
arrival. There were fecal
marks in the bowl from a previous user that were not even flushed away
by the janitor. One flush from us was all it took to swirl them away.
If the bowl wasn't cleaned, how can we be assured that the seat was
cleaned? This is a problem.
- Fan's position on wall was not
facing the shower
stall. It was right in the way of a tall driver's ability to lean over
the sink, given the small amount of standing room between the built-in
seat and the shower stall. This can be dangerous.
- Showerhead was too high (inches
from shower stall's
ceiling) for a short driver to position.
- Shower water temperature was
not consistent; got
significantly warmer whenever someone flushed a toilet
- Shower water pressure was not
lowered slightly whenever someone flushed a toilet
- The wall tiles in the shower
showed significant amounts of grout either missing or discolored due to
- The floor tiles were
discolored, too; we guess that the discoloration was due to bleach or
other strong chemicals being sprayed on but not rinsed.
- Built-in seat was too close to
- The grout/caulking in the
corners of the sink had started to mold/mildew or go missing
- Toilet paper dispenser was too
low on the wall for a tall or oversized customer to easily
- Toilet paper dispenser
and toilet were installed too close to each other for an
oversized customer to sit on the toilet with comfort.
Notes: "Shower Review Pilot Pennsylvania Carlisle"
- While there were towel hooks on
the wall, they were
opposite the shower
stall over the built-in seat; however, towels could be easily accessed
from the stall if set on the counter near the sink.
- We wanted to speak with a
manager about the failure
of the janitorial staff to clean the toilet -- to insure that in the
are cleaned after every user -- but there was a
long line of customers
waiting to be served at the registers.
- We came into the building for a
shower at about 11:05 a.m. and had no waiting for a shower. There were
showers available. Our number being called was "Shower Customer 53" and
while we were there, the last shower assignment announcement we heard
was "Shower Customer 62." So this facility was busy today.
