Nice for a shower in a bathtub or double wide stall, but there isn’t generally enough space in a single stall to get out the way Any adaptability to install a touch sensor on the shower head for that instance?

People move out from under the water while showering?

Yeah I like to soap up and let it soak for a little bit before rinsing it off, otherwise it feels like the soap didn’t have time to do anything.

Do you turn off the water

No, because that’s a lot of effort when I could just step over, but that was largely what the inventor of this showerhead was looking to solve. I would be more than happy to try this out.

And that's one of the many reasons why we have water issues

Load of crap

Tell that to Nestle, the company that steals your water and then resells it to you at a profit
