One of the components of a sonic shower was an acoustic inverter. When an acoustic inverter broke, the sound created by the sonic shower has been described as being able to "make your hair stand on end". A decoupler was the standard device used for checking sonic shower relays. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong"; VOY: "Day of Honor")
The sonic showers on Deep Space 9 sometimes malfunctioned. Rom and Leeta's broke down in early 2374 and Ezri Dax's needed to be repaired in late 2375. (DS9: "Favor the Bold", "Extreme Measures") Miles O'Brien was going to fix the latter until he became embroiled in an elaborate search – which he and Julian Bashir carried out – for a cure for a morphogenic virus. (DS9: "Extreme Measures")
In 2375, visiting Kadi monk Tomin could not use the sonic showers aboard the USS Voyager as they only washed with purified water, necessitating the installation of an ablutionary fountain in his quarters. (VOY: "Someone to Watch Over Me")
In 2376, Seven of Nine canceled a singing lesson with Neelix because she felt that his vocal cords were incapable of producing basic diatonic tones and he had other rhythmic shortcomings. Neelix complained that he sounded good in the sonic shower, and Seven suggested he confine his efforts to that location. (VOY: "Pathfinder")
