Shower #3

Pros: Shower Review Pilot Connecticut Milford

  • A small packet of soap was waiting for us in the room.
  • Plenty of counter space at sink
  • Fan worked well
  • Mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers
  • A light over the mirror allowed male customers to shave without getting nicked.
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Shower could be turned on and temperature selected without getting wet
  • Door restrictor worked well
  • Towels were thick and thirsty, like beach towels
  • Washcloths were sufficiently thick
  • Toilet flushed well
  • Mike said that the toilet paper dispenser's position on the wall did not crowd him when seated on the toilet.
  • Shower water pressure dipped only momentarily when a toilet was flushed.
  • There was no discernible change in shower water temperature when a toilet was flushed.
  • There were 3 towel hooks on the wall behind the door and one right outside the shower stall.

Cons: Shower Review Pilot Connecticut Milford

  • Even though the fan worked well, its air flow -- even when directed right at the mirror -- was not enough to keep the mirror from fogging up when a customer was getting a shower.
  • There was a significant amount of mold or mildew along the grout in the shower stall, particularly along the ceiling and wall near the ceiling right as a user stepped into the shower stall.
  • Showerhead was almost too high for a short driver to position. Vicki had to stand on the raised lip of the shower stall -- on her tiptoes -- to reach it and it was still a stretch.
  • Shower water pressure was almost too hard (not quite up to "sand blaster" pressure but close).
  • Built-in seat was not large enough for an oversized shower bag to rest on.
  • Shower water splashed out of the stall.
