Authors comments
User prefers to shower sitting on the toilet. It is easier for him to reach all parts of the body, and he avoids one transfer.
He is very pleased because the entire floor slopes toward the drain, which makes it easier to clean the floor. He does this with a shower squeegee (related tip) while he is still sitting on the toilet.
