How To Disable Shower Faucet Scald-Guard?

New postby Gricelda » 22 Oct 2012, 02:26

Any ideas on how to disable the "pressure-balancing" technology in all new shower facuet systems? What brands' designs lend themselves to modification? I'm an adult and I want to take a hot shower without the temperature being mandated by government or manufacturer. I am experienced with home plumbing repairs. Thanks.

There is a dial type of affair insdie these things where you can pull of the outer ring and turn it one way for hotter and the other for not so hot. It should be maked on the removeable part which direction hotter is. You need to remove the handle to find the adjustment.

In my nation, I do not allow any midgets or gays, but I shower disabled people with riches. Am I a bad king?

Yes. A good king knows that midgets are used to hold up tables that are missing a leg.

Where can I find ex-long shower curtains for disable walk in showers?

I live in a handicap accessible apartment, with a walk in shower stall. The regular shower curtains are to short.So the water run out on the floor. There has got to be longer shower curtains somewhere, or I"ll have to stop showering. Just kidding!

Yes, there are a couple of good options. One is JC Penney's extra long shower curtains. You can visit their web page at http://www.jcpenney.com/ and type in "extra long shower curtains". The other option is the Bed and Bath Store at: http://www.bedbathstore.com/exloshcu.html. This should give you a good start.

There are dozens of organizations that might help - but which would depends on where you are and what disability your father has. Start by calling every social service agency in your area and asking - then try the charities. You can find some of those numbers at http://www.katrinadisability.info - then click on your state.

Request enfocement of the Americans with Disabilaties act, as for HOW , I think you need to contact your local representive of the Department of Health and Human Services, or solicit the Services of a Lawyer.

What are those showers that are round and have a door that opens for elderly/disabled?

They were on TV a few times in adverts.please advise
In the advert they were round and had a door that swung open. I believe you could walk in and shut the door and sit down or stand to take shower. Cant find the name anywhere or prices?

Question about showers being put in for disabled people?

New postby Shila » 22 Oct 2012, 02:26

I would appreciate an answer from anyone in the Social work or O.T. profession.

My friend's son (who has autism) lives independently in a flat which has a bath but no shower. However he will not use the bath for mental reasons he has a fear of lying in his own filth and has to shower at his Mother's house.

I thought he may be eligible for a shower put in but all the social worker (who is just out of training) will say "he is physically capable of getting in a bath he can't get a shower".

And the social worker won't even refer him for a shower.

Can she do this? I thought it wasn't even her department to make that decision I would have thought she had to refer on request and then let the OT decide. Any advice?
This is in Scotland btw/

Putting a shower in is really a very simple and inexpensive matter for a plumber. Alternatively there are hoses you can affix to the tub faucet and use as a hand held shower. And most anyone can put up a shower curtain with a spring rod. So is there any reason this mother doesn't just get it done?

You need to have railings and seats and non-slip mats.
