Do you turn the water on before or after you get in the shower?

MidnightStorm MidnightStorm
I've always turned the water on while I was standing in the shower (let the faucet warm up, turn the shower head on) but I recently discovered that my boyfriend does the opposite. It never occurred to me that you could do it the other way, but it makes a lot more sense! If you turn the water on before you get in, the water gets warm, the shower itself gets warm, and it doesn't matter if someone left the shower on instead of turning it to the faucet.

What about you? Do you turn the water on then step into the shower or step into the shower then turn the water on?

I don't bathe. ( Eewwww... )
I prefer to wash myself in Jello & sprinkles. ( The infamous other - Is this really necessary, haha? )

I always turn on the water first, then get in once I've adjusted the temperature.

Who doesnt like sprinkles!? Just kidding. My bathroom is the farthest away from the hot water heater so I turn the water on and let it warm up before I get in. However I dont turn the shower on untill after I get in.

Man was I tempted to pick the sprinkle option!

I turn on the water and then get in the shower. I kinda thought everyone did that. Interesting that isn't the case.

I do like you. I get in, turn the faucet on and adjust it to the temp I want and then turn the shower on.

I turn it on before so it warms up while I brush my hair. Thick, curly hair's kind of a pain.

I get the water warmed up before I get in but I don't let it run for a long time before getting in.

I turn the water on while I'm standing in the shower and let it run on my feet to decide if I like the temperature. Then again, I'm the only person I know who likes lukewarm showers on a regular basis...

I turn the water on first. I like mine very warm so I need to wait for it to get to the right temp.

I have to warm it up before I get in because uh -_- idiot landlord put my hot water tank on the OTHER side of the building.

I turn it on before so that I am not shocked by the cold and to give it time to find the perfect temperature.

I let it warm up while I brush my teeth.

I let it run until it gets hot, which doesn't take long since I got a power shower.

Always before so the water warms up. For us it takes a minute or two

I'd get shocked with cold if I stood in when turning on the shower.

I know it's more eco-friendly to wait until you get in, but depending on where and the time of year that can mean an unpleasant blast of cold water, or worse, a burn, so I turn it on before I get in.

i always turn it on first let it warm up and adjust the temp to desired then turn the shower head on and step in. this reduces the chances of either getting burned, frozen or having to sidestep the shower while adjusting the temp and when you try to do that it takes longer to get it right.

I turn it on after I get in because there's only one bathroom in my house so you have to leave the door unlocked for other people. So the less time spent naked outside the shower, the better. XD And that habit carries over to other showers.

Turn it on, let it heat up, and then hop in. I can't stand cold showers!

I turn it on right before I get in. I designed my plumbing system to give me almost instant hot water out of any faucet in the house. So it only takes about 5 seconds to get steaming hot water.

I don't like to stand under freezing cold water, so I always turn the water on first and wait till it's warm enough before I hop in.

I turn the water on before I get in-- it's rarely warm enough to enjoy fresh-off!
