Shower vs bath
I have never been keen on lying in my own bath water. My wife on the other hand luxuriates for hours in a hot bath. Arguments about whether to retrofit our ancient bathrooms with baths, showers, or a hybrid have been protracted. However now the eco lobby has come to my rescue - or has it?
My wife believes that assessments should also be based on enjoyment, so I have given up the argument. However, if you are installing a shower, choose a tray with a strainer basket. I am witness to 50 blockages in the first week of opening a student hostel. Shower traps are not the easiest thing to unblock!
