Too Hot? Too Cold? Or Just Right? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help if you can’t regulate your shower’s temperature.

You’ve been preparing for weeks to run in next weekend’s Clearwater Running Festival. One of the best things about the prep work is the long, hot shower after your daily run. It feels so good to stand there and let the hot water flow over you. If it was possible, you’d stand there for hours.

Showering can seem like a daily luxury but health experts say the shower is only as good as the temperature, which, like Goldilocks’ porridge, needs to be “just right.”

“Temperatures higher than 104 degrees could actually lead to medical ailments such as scalding, a drop in blood pressure, and lightheadedness,” says bestlifeonline.com. “On the other hand, temperatures lower than 98 degrees could put you at risk of lowering your core body temperature, which may cause you to experience heart rate issues or even hypothermia.”

The optimum temperature, says bestlifeonline.com, is between 98 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit – lukewarm. That’s the gentlest that allows your skin to maintain essential oils so you don’t end up with dry skin. Also, a warm shower before bed can help you fall asleep faster while a cold shower can interfere with your sleep patterns.

That all sounds great but what it your shower is cranky and doesn’t hold temperature well? Perhaps your warm shower quickly goes cold. Or perhaps your warm shower blasts you with cold water when taps or toilets elsewhere in the house are used.

Those – as well as other problems with the temperature of your shower – could indicated a problem with your water heater. Perhaps the thermostat is broken or maybe the heater is too small, too old, or simply needs replacing.

If that’s the case, you need to find a trusted Tampa Bay plumbing specialist to take a look and see what’s going on. You can find a reliable 24-hour plumbing technician at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
