SAFE SHOWERING FOR ALL GENERATIONS
Accidents can happen anywhere anytime and that explains the need for safe showering for all generations. Though most showers are simple to use and operate, what make them safe are their professional installation and safety usage tips. In order to ensure the safe use of showers, it’s important that the user has a thorough knowledge of its usage.
Today, most showers in home, hospitals and retirement residences are made barrier-free in an attempt to avoid and eliminate obstacles. It is for this reason that the easy to access floor-level showers offer greater user comfort.
It’s the same for shower faucets. While the operation of shower is simple and intuitive, most often we fail to give adequate consideration to the special needs of various consumer groups. For instance, slippery shower surfaces resulting in incorrect handling of faucets can be particularly hazardous for the elderly and children. Scalding and health issues resulting from such unintentional misoperations can easily be avoided with some careful precautions. Sudden change in temperature of water can be a major health hazard as children and elderly are usually sensitive to extreme temperature changes.
Thus, whatever showering technology you choose for, put safety at the top of your concern. When it comes to installation, you should follow the check list of safety precautions. You can keep automatic shut-off features to the test. Don’t assume anything; test the home’s hot water system for yourself, also check out the pressure. It might take you a little longer, but remember that prevention is always better than cure!
