Everyone just wants to be able to pop in the shower whenever the mood strikes. It’s very frustrating when something goes wrong. Common shower concerns include:
• The water flow is inconsistent. Sometimes it’s forceful and sometimes it simply drips. The shower head is probably clogged and needs cleaning.
• Our shower head leaks when the shower is supposed to be off! It may need new gaskets and o-rings to create an effective water-tight seal.
• Hardly any water comes from the shower head at all. There is a possible pipe blockage from a build-up of silt and debris.
• The single lever handle is either too loose or is sticking. This could be due to hard water build-up or a bad cartridge.
• The water temperature too hot or too cold. The shower cartridge or anti-scald valve might need to be replaced.
• The shower diverter valve isn’t working properly. In a tub/shower combination, sometimes the shower diverter valve (the mechanism that switches from shower use to tub faucet use) wears down and needs to be swapped out for a new one.
