Almost like a yoda-like sound right? Swimming I practice. It's still grammatically correct though.

comment La llave vs. la clave
para abrir algo que está cerrado although very common sense sounding seems to be a good link between the different uses of llave. Since the water flows when you pull the lever on your sink, you are indeed opening something, the valve as you said.

comment Estar + gerundio, ¿qué significa?
By using estaba you are simply indicating that the action of showering was taking place, rather than just passively saying me duchaba. Without estaba it gives off the sense of an everyday action.
