A shower is a place in which a person bathes under a spray of typically warm or hot water. Indoors, there is a drain in the floor. Most showers have temperature, spray pressure and adjustable showerhead nozzle. The simplest showers have a swivelling nozzle aiming down on the shower PDF user, while more complex showers have a showerhead connected to a hose that has a mounting bracket.

L’installazione di una nuova doccia supertecnologica nella sua casa, sconvolgerà la vita di Reese, tranquillo adolescente le cui uniche preoccupazioni fino a quel momento erano i test scolastici e l’amicizia con la compagna Chloe, che sembra destinata a indebolirsi giorno per giorno. Cosa sarà lo strano marchingegno installato nel suo bagno, è davvero solo una doccia o nasconde qualcosa di più? E perché Reese finisce suo malgrado a ritrovarsi continuamente fuori di casa… completamente nudo?
The original showers were neither indoor structures nor man-made but were common natural formations: waterfalls. The falling water rinsed the bathers completely clean and was more efficient than bathing in a traditional basin, which required manual transport of both fresh and waste water. The first mechanical shower, operated by a hand pump, was patented in England in 1767 by William Feetham, a stove maker from Ludgate Hill in London. His shower contraption used a pump to force the water into a vessel above the user’s head and a chain would then be pulled to release the water from the vessel.
Domestic showers are most commonly stall showers or showers over a bathtub. A stall shower is a dedicated shower area which uses a door or curtain to contain water spray. The shower over a bathtub saves bathroom space and enables the area to be used for either a bath or a shower and commonly uses a sliding shower curtain to contain the water spray. Many modern athletic and aquatic facilities provide showers for use by patrons, commonly in gender segregated changing rooms.
These can be in the form of individual stalls shielded by curtains or a door or communal shower rooms. A wet room is a bathroom without internal dedicated or raised areas which has an open shower. Structurally, a wet room requires the bathroom to have a gradient or slope towards a drain hole, and a foul air trap connecting the floor to the waste pipes. Air shower, a type of bathing where high pressure air is used to blow off excess dust particles from cleanroom personnel. Digital shower, a shower system that works in a similar way to mixer or power showers, but provides more control over the temperature of the water with the use of a digital control panel. Eco shower, a shower system that comes in mixer or electric variations, but also features a regulator to regulate the flow of water with a view to saving water.
Electric shower, a shower stall device to locally heat shower water with electrical power. Mixer shower, a shower system that takes water from existing hot and cold water supplies and combines them within the unit. Power shower, a shower stall device that works similarly to a mixer shower by mixing existing hot and cold water feeds, but locally increases the water pressure available to the shower head by means of an electric booster pump. Roman shower, a shower that does not use a door or curtain. Steam shower, a type of bathing where a humidifying steam generator produces steam that is dispersed around a person’s body.
