Is it Bad to Have a Leaky Shower?
Leaking showers can be more serious than they may appear. Common issues include:
- The water bill will increase as there is water constantly dripping from the showerhead
- With the leak, the plumbing system will be constantly working which will cause added stress leading to future problems
- Water damage is common as the leak may leak onto the walls and floors and other areas, causing structural damage and mold to form
Why is my Shower Leaking?
The more common reasons why a shower may be leaking is from the:
- Faucet – erosion, wash or o-ring defects, o-ring incorrectly installed or diverter valve issues
- Showerhead – clogged water holes or head gasket issues
- Valve – water flow disruptions, worn rings, valve seat, spring, shower seal or washers or thermostatic cartridge defects
What are Some Common Shower Issues?
A shower can experience a large range of issues that will need to be repaired by a professional plumber. Based on our professional day-day experience, the most common shower problems that we encounter are:
Clogs in the shower drain and the showerhead are common issues. Hair, soap and products can become stuck in the shower drain and the showerhead can be blocked from other items. For tips on how to unclog the showerhead our blog article provides expert steps in unblocking any showerhead.
High pressure or low pressure issues can be caused by the faucet and a new one will need to be installed. A showerhead might also be faulty which causes inadequate pressure to occur.
A faucet that leaks can be from the seals, rings or gaskets. These will often need to be replaced where a plumber will complete the service efficiently.
If the shower is noisier than usual then a plumber will have to look to determine the issue. Often it is because a part of the shower is not connected correctly and makes noises as it is not secured.
Bad smells from the shower are often caused by clogs or a buildup of mould. Ventilating the bathroom is important and a plumber will need to address the issue correctly.
Can I Waterproof my Shower without Removing Tiles?
Waterproofing can be completed without the need to remove the tiles on the floor or wall. Waterproofing might need to occur after a new renovation or if there have been any repairs done to the shower. The grout deteriorated sealants will need to be removed with the tiles being cleaned. A professional and fully qualified plumber should carry out this process to make sure it is correctly completed.
