Got A Leaking Showerhead?
For many people, a shower can be more than just a place to get clean. It can be where we take mini vacations. It’s where we sing loudly and proudly, dance like no one’s watching (because, hopefully, no one actually is!) and come up with our best ideas.
People spend all kinds of money to renovate their bathrooms and showers to make them perfect for their personality and lifestyle. That’s why it’s important to keep things right in there. So, what do you do when you have a leaky showerhead?
We’ve all seen the cliché. The person who is just on the brink of falling asleep being disturbed by the consistent drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet. Even the idea of that noise is enough to send some people diving for the phone to call a plumber (which we love, by the way!). The sound of a leaking showerhead magnifies that noise even more.
Besides being a super annoying noise, the reality of a leaky showerhead or faucet is really just an expense you don’t need. Remember, once you get out of the shower and go about your day, that shower is still leaking. You spend your entire day at work, school and play while your shower drips away. Imagine each drip is another penny sliding down the drain, and we all know how pennies quickly add up to dollars and dollars add up to, well, more dollars- to the point of skyrocketing water bills.
Don’t let your money go straight down the drain. We can help.
How To Repair A Dripping Showerhead
Let’s face it, fixing a showerhead is not leading off on anybody’s “fun way to spend an evening” list. If it was up to us, we’d suggest you always call a plumber (of course, us!), but we understand you may want to fix this yourself. Most of the time, it’s a pretty simple job, and you’ll feel like a pro if you pull it off. Here are the steps involved:
- Turn off your water at the source. The last thing you need is a shower with your clothes on.
- Remove the showerhead and look for any obvious problems
- Clean the showerhead thoroughly to help with your inspection
- Get some waterproof plumbers tape and tape the end of the pipe (that you just unscrewed the showerhead from).
- Reattach the showerhead
- Turn the water back on and check to see if that takes care of things.
All things considered, that takes care of most of the leaky shower problems a majority of the time.
