Advice & Tips: I can use the "harder" shower settings to rinse hair and body better and faster than just the "shower" setting. Always use the handheld...unless I sit on bath stool to wash hair, etc.

Advice & Tips: Make it much easier to rinse off in the shower, plus can wash hair sitting down on shower stool! Also has different pressures. Sometimes (usually) I use a "harder" shower, so I can get clean faster.
