One of the relaxing things we do in our day is having a shower. This relaxing and refreshing thing can turn into a headache if it starts leaking. Tai Irwin Plumbing & Draining has been repairing Leaking Shower on the Northern Beaches & North Shore areas of Sydney for over 35 years.
Generally, shower leakage can be caused by two problems. Both of them can be easily repaired. If you don’t solve the leakage problem soon then you have to do under-wall repairing. However, you just have to deal with the showerhead or the shower faucet to stop the leakage without actual removing the tiles.
Many times leaking is due to the gap formed between O-ring and washer. So first check the O-ring and washer. Replace if they are not in good condition or else you can seal them with the tape.
To clean the shower head you can use various liquids available in the market or just submerge it in water with lemon and salt in it. Some people also use vinegar to clean the shower.
Now keep the showerhead in hot water for half an hour and with the help of brush clean it completely. Use a dry towel to wipe the showerhead.
Place back the shower head as it was before. Make sure you do not let the screw loose or tighten it too much.
Check the showerhead by turning on the water flow. Even after this if shower leaks then you have to repair the Faucet.
To remove the handle you have to remove all the water from the shower. ( as mentioned above) Now with the help of a spanner or a screwdriver trying to remove all the screws. This will detach the handle from the shower.
Some showers have a handle cap which can be easily removed with bare hands. Once you remove the handle cap you can see the handle screws.
Buy the cartridge which exactly fits in your shower. To remove your old cartridge you have to use a screwdriver or a puller to remove the upper-clip.
You can see the cartridge, it will be attached to the wall with a few screws. Unscrew it and you can easily remove the cartridge.
Replace the old cartridge with the new one. Cartridge generally looks like a horseshoe step. Now fit the shower again by following the same steps.
