Limescale in the shower, prevention
To prevent the formation of limescale in the shower and in all its components, it is possible to adopt two strategies: one very boring but cheap, the other very expensive but immediate! In this paragraph we will see how to prevent limescale from forming in the shower and in all its components (plate, glass, flexible hose, shower head…).
The economical method that will allow you to prevent the formation of limescale in the shower is to dryalways the shower and each of its components, at the end of use. For the shower head, there are shower heads with anti-limescale nozzles that are easier to clean.

Anti-limescale shower head
If you have oneShoweranti-limescalecleaning will be much easier. Among the various market proposals there are cheaper ones such asGrohe single jet shower with EcoJoy technology(on Amazon you can buy it with 14 euros and free shipping costs).
From personal experience I tell you that it is not necessary to disassemble or use spatulas: if you have very calcareous water, once a month you just need to pass the back of a knife (not the sharp and notched part, but the smooth one without a blade ) along the rubberized surface of the shower which, thanks to the anti-limestone technology (which in the aforementioned shower is called SpeedClean), will blow away the limescale residues in a few moments and the water jet will return to being alive.
