    Hi

    So I rent out my spare room on AirBNB and share my bathroom with a guest.
    He sometimes likes to turn the Mira Mixer shower up and it tends to spray the whole bathroom.

    Is their a way I can change the shower head to reduce the flow so this can't happen?

    Cheers

    The problem is that guests don't really care what mess they make as it's not their home. So they are unlikely to turn the shower down on the mixer.
    Not all guests do this so simple answer is not to let him stay again actually.

    Trust me AirBNB is a nightmare if you leave your guest a bad review they will retaliate and leave me a bad review. As a host on AirBNB if you get too many bad reviews they term your listing (it's completely biased towards the paying guests).

    Change the head to a single spray and put a flow limiter in it. Both readily available, not too expensive and easy to swap over
