7/25 - Flush Shower

every morning I like to get up, go to the bathroom, and take a shower. However, this combination confronts me with a serious problem: what to do about the shower water temperature? You see, when you flush, it makes the shower exponentially hotter. Not only that, but you lose the ability to moderate the water temperature in the shower until like a minute and a half has passed.

I have never received a good explanation as to why flushing effects the shower so greatly. Are we using freezing cold water in our toilets that is getting pulled away from teh shower? How long mus this problem go on. I've been seeing it in showers around the country (and the world) for over 20 years. You would think that there would be atleast a few advances in plumbing. I'm sick and tired of getting scorched in the shower just because I flush the toilet.

Flushing before showering: I hate it.

I don't even understand today's "hate". Your complaint is that you have to wait a whole minute from the time you flush the toilet to when you take a shower? I don't understand how the two could happen at the same time? You flush teh toilet, wait a whole fucking NINETY SECONDS, and then start the shower up. That's HARD to you? Your time is THAT valuable? Can't you brush your teeth during that time, or something else to fill in the interminable SECONDS?

I don't think the actual mechanics should be that hardt o understand. There'sa bunch of PIPES, that can only carry so much water at once. If the toilet is taking all of the cold water (just the cold water pipe goes into the toilet), then there's none left to go to the shower, so all you get is hot. This is rocket science now?

welcome aboard bobman.

1. I do hate waiting. I guess my time is more valuable than yours.

2. Brushing teeth is not an option. I shower, eat, brush. Brushing earlier would make my oj taste nasty. I suppose I could compose a list of the reasons I am better than you, but that would require more than 90 seconds.

3. I hope your comment wasn't just a ploy to drive viewers to your site. You seem like you have some real hate in you, hope to see you around these parts again soon.

Nope, legitimate gripe. I could care less who reads my site, I rarely post anything on it anyways.

Enjoyin most of your site tho. This one just seemed like it was pushing it...

maiden, youre gonna have to give me some examples of why youre hating on me.

about the post.. wasnt the hate geared toward the fact that we're in the year 2006 and we cant solve the water pressure problem between the shower and toilet.. seems like a legit hate to me.

IAM, I'm not hating on you specifically, I am PMSng. Meaning = I am fucking homicidal for the next week. Or maybe deliriously happy. When I saw the newbie's post I hated him and wanted to defend DH, ha ha. I need a life and a penis. Hard being a girl today.

I don't seem to have that problem in my building. I think it's an individual building issue.

Did someone mention sandwiches? Do we have some sandwiches up in this place now?

8:27 AM  
Blogger iamunstoppable said...

yeah, youve got the clientele, now the DH needs to open it up a bit.. offering sammies and beverages.

Club and a water, please.

A Midol and a jack and coke please.

technically the problem has been solved, it's just that only the rich or plumbing inclined have the solution installed (a pressure doodah behind your shower valve that doesn't allow the temperature to change drastically).

so basically the DH should be hating on himself for living in the ghetto.
