Cons: Shower Review Pilot Indiana Hebron

  • Showerhead in shower stall was positioned too high to be adjusted by shorter drivers
  • Showerhead was very unlike one used in a home; spray from it was too hard (what we would call a “sand blaster” type).
  • Water pressure in shower was not consistent throughout Mike’s shower
  • Showerhead was not positioned so as to let the water temperature be set without getting wet
  • Showerhead was not positioned in the stall so as to minimize splattering on floor outside stall
  • The built-in seat was not quite big enough for an oversized shower bag
  • Unless the fan was used, the mirror would fog when someone showered
  • Small tiles on the shower stall floor not laid flat made standing on them for any length of time uncomfortable
  • The height of the step going into the shower stall was unusually high, which could lead to drivers stumbling or tripping over it, especially those who wear glasses and cannot see it clearly
  • The room showed significant signs of usage

Note: The water at this facility is quite soft, which could lead to customers’ difficulty determining when they have rinsed off all soap.
