I'm a frail, 127 lb. old man of 87. Recently, my daughter had my bathroom remodelled so I'd be "more comfortable." I liked it better the way it was. My first shower almost killed me. To get hot water, I had to turn the handle all the way left which resulted in a stream (of boiling water) that could have put out a forest fire. If I wanted to freeze, all I had to do is turn the handle right. Frankly, I'm not too big on freezing. How can I get out of this without hurting my family's feelings? Why can't I have a little shut off valve between the pipe that sticks out of the wall and the shower? I could then turn the water down to keep from being stabbed to death by a million laser like pin pricks that came through the little holes. When I tried to adjust the holes bigger, the whole thing came apart and the water from the half inch pipe almost fractured my jaw. C'mon somebody, save me from more of this. Tell me what I have to do so I don't die before my time. I need to cut the force of that water down. In the old days, all you had to do was turn H or C up or down to control the amount of water you got. If these new showers are progress, ha.
