Kylie Jenner might have a makeup empire and a net worth of $700 million, but even she has her fair share of plumbing problems.

Over the weekend, the founder of Kylie Cosmetics posted an Instagram story of her $36.5 million Holmby Hills mansion. One video gives a glimpse of her bathroom, complete with luxurious pink marble walls. But keen-eyed followers noticed one slight problem: the weak water pressure.

Twitter, of course, had jokes.

The rest of the newly-built 15,000 square-foot home is impressive. It has seven bedrooms and 14 bathrooms (hopefully not all of those have problematic shower heads), as well as a home theater, bars and game rooms, a gym, an outdoor projection screen, a kitchen and a separate chef’s kitchen, and its own dedicated guard house.

One explanation why Jenner’s water pressure is weak is California’s shower head requirements, which has the strictest standard of any U.S. state. To conserve water, the drought-affected state only legally allows shower head flows of up to 1.8 gallons per minute (gpm), compared to 2.5 gpm elsewhere.
