Notes, Grade, Recommendation, Comments, Part 1: Shower Review Pilot South Carolina Florence

Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?: This is a postage stamp-sized shower room, being small. It has seen some hard usage.

Although there was a bar across the entrance to the shower stall, there was no shower curtain hanging from it.

The only light by which to see in the mirror was behind the person looking in the mirror, casting a shadow.

While the sink area had no attached counter space, there was a small shelf on the wall above the toilet. It was too high for short customers to see the top of.

It took two flushes to remove waste from the toilet bowl.

While I saw no mold or mildew in the shower stall, I noticed a lot of “grout fatigue” in which the grout between the tiles had started to deteriorate and fall out, leaving gaps between the tiles.

A tile behind the toilet and a tile on the wall near the floor near the built-in seat were angled out away from the wall as though they had not been set correctly.

While the towels were soft, the humidity in the room made it seem after toweling off that I still wasn’t dry.

At one time, there had been a door restrictor on the door, but it had been removed.
