Electric Shower Heads – Crazy
Hot water showers are something of a rarity in Central America as its so hot. In South America so far, at least in the mountains, hot water is much more important. The problem is that when you do find hot water its often using an electric shower head.
Best case scenario is that they turn cold water into barely luke warm water. However mostly they leak, spraying water in all directions – often straight up to the ceiling, and coating all the electric wires with water.
The worst ones manage to electrify themselves and we’ve learnt not to touch any buttons or switches as you invariably get a shock.
I can imagine the Health & Safety mafia at home would have a fit.
