Leaking Shower Head Should I Replace It?

My shower head needs to be replaced because it’s leaking? My shower head gets no water? These are some recent questions we have received from our Orlando customers. Most of our customers think all it takes to fix a leaking shower head is to have an Orlando plumber replace it but that is wrong. If you have a leaking shower head or tub spout, replacing it will do nothing because the problem is actually in the shower valve body itself and if it’s a newer style valve such as Moen or Delta the cartridge will have to be replaced to stop the drip from the shower head or tub spout. If it is the old three handle tub and shower valve it will need to have the seats and washers replaced.

 

As to the next plumbing repair my shower gets no water to take a shower. Well this means your diverter is bad and could be in the valve body but most of the time it is in the tub spout. There is a little nob on top of the tub spout that you pull up to divert water to shower head down it comes out of the tub spout. When the knob is up, there should be no water coming out of tub spout and if there is, the tub spout will have to be replaced by your local Orlando plumbing company.
