Turn me to your favourite setting
Then get ready for a wetting

A slight twist can affect my strength
And my tail can vary by length

How might you be refreshed today?
I think you might enjoy my spray

By design I am full of holes
I'll help you reach your cleaning goals

But to assist in this pursuit
You must be in your birthday suit

What am I?


Show Hint

Answer

a showerhead

lines 1-2:
Showerheads often have various settings from which to choose e.g. pulsing, continuous spray, etc.

lines 3-4:
Some of the settings spray water with more energy (water pressure) than others. So adjusting the showerhead from one setting to the next can affect "my strength". The "tail" is the hose through which the water travels.

lines 5-6:
Many people find showers refreshing.

lines 7-8:
A showerhead has holes through which the water comes out. A shower, and thus a showerhead, can help one clean oneself.

lines 9-10:
In order to get clean by taking a shower, one needs to be undressed.


For the hint, since a showerhead can be used in a shower stall, it has an "in stall" application.

For those of you who appreciate puns, it may be worth noting that if the application is installed improperly, there may be "downstream issues".
