How to Fix a Drippy Shower Faucet

Do you have a drippy shower faucet? Many customers think that changing the shower head or tub spout will fix this problem but this is not the case the shower head and tub spout do not seal the water from your tap. The place that stops the water from dripping is in the valve of the shower where the handle is on newer valves it is a cartridge assembly. When this fails your tub will drip and if it its only a shower it will drip from the shower head. On older homes it is usually a bad seat or washer or both. Sometimes the stem will need replacement. If you have an old three handle tub/shower valve it is best to replace the whole valve. This will cost more but in the long run it will save you time and aggravation. Converting your tub/shower valve to a single style anti-scald will make it easier to adjust the hot and cold. When using it will also make it easier in the future for your Apopka plumber to repair the valve if it ever needs to be repaired. Overall if you have a drippy shower faucet it is not the spout or the shower head. It is best to call a plumber in Apopka to fix the issue. Changing the spout or head will not solve the plumbing problem. If you have a leaky faucet give us a call at 407-710-0210. We are Florida’s top plumbing company.
