    Stand Up or Sit Down

    I am referring to stand up showers or sit down in a bath.

    We have had a leak problem in the house for a couple of days now and the plumber has already been three times, but still the problem has not been fixed. Basically, when we run the bath, the water is leaks into our back lounge downstairs. At the moment, we have a gaping hole in one corner of the house where the plumber has cut through to get into the pipes

    Now, I have to use the stand up shower in the ensuite bedroom which I really hate using.

    1) I am 6ft 2 and I either keep hitting my elbows on one of the four walls each time I make a turn.
    2) I hate enclosed spaces.
    3) The screw which holds the shower unit to the wall has come loose on the wall and I did not know that and almost yanked the whole thing from the wall.

    What does everyone else prefer? standing up or sitting down?

    I thought you were talking about having a wee when I saw the thread title!!

    Shower wise I prefer standing up. I like the sensation of the water running down my skin as opposed to sitting in a big puddle. Bubble bath just doesn't do it for me, give me a hot shower with plenty of pressure and a big bottle of Foamburst any day!!

    I prefer a shower. What are you supposed to do in a bath except just sit there?? You're just stewing in your own filth.
