How to Stop your Shower Curtain from Blowing In
If you are looking for the inexpensive and practical solution to stop the shower curtain / liner from blowing inwards while showering and attacking, you came to the right place.
First, you may be wondering why the shower curtain is attacking you so let me summarize that in the section below.
What Causes the Shower Curtain to Blow Inwards?
The phenomenon that describes how the shower curtain blows in while running water in a shower is commonly called the Shower Curtain Effect, also known as Shower Curtain Cling. Although there have been many theories debated over the years, there are a several hypotheses that give the best explanation.
The Buoyancy hypothesis, aka Chimney effect, describes how warm air rises up and over the shower curtain while cooler air from the bottom replaces this void causing the shower curtain to be pushed in. This does give an explanation when showering with hot water, although the event still occurs when using cold water.
The Bernoulli hypothesis give further insight by pointing out that the increase of velocity caused by water rushing through a shower head decreases air pressure parallel to it. The lower air pressure inside the shower stall with then result in the shower curtain being sucked in.
The combination of the above two hypotheses working together paints a good picture to explain the event of the shower curtain effect.
There is also the Horizontal vortex hypothesis that uses computational fluid dynamics to illustrate a horizontal vortex instead of the above-mentioned hypothesis that won the 2001 IG Nobel Prize in Physics. But, you can read a little more about that by clicking here.
Now that you have a better understanding of why Shower Curtain Cling takes place, let’s discuss the possible solutions.
