SOURCE: dripping shower head

If it is dripping from the connection where it goes to the water spout you can unscrew the connection and wrap teflon tape or Pipe Joint Compound on the Threads. Now you can Thread the Shower Head Back on, with No Leak. IF..... It is leaking from the Shower Head Itself There May Be a Problem with the diverter handle/lever. If it has a Pull Type Lever, sometimes you can screw the Lever up or down for the proper water restriction to the Shower Head. However if the Hot and Cold Handle/Lever is OFF, There should not be any Water coming out from anywhere! If water is coming out off the Tub Spout, with the Shower Off, then you will have to replace some washers or Cartridges in the faucet(s) to stop the dripping. You can do this easily....Just Ask) Remember though, that some shower Heads may Drip for a Few Minutes After they are Turned off. There is still water in the Supply neck and needs to escape, either though the tub Spout or Shower Head.......Hope this Solution Helps you with your Drips.....Joe

SOURCE: Moen shower head drips. Single lever shower only.

Probably need to remove and replace the cartridge. Often sediment will tear part of the o-ring or seal on the cartridge and cause this problem...
varies by model, but generally, remove the cap on the knob, unscrew the knob, remove the keyed sleeve, remove the round trim plate & shut off the service stops (verify they are fully closed by pulling out on the valve stem) next remove the retaining clip (needle nose and be gentle) that holds the cartridge in place, then pull the cartridge straight out with vice grips or similar (or get a puller). clean the cartridge, flush out the valve body by slightly opening both service stops, reinstall cartridge and clip, open service stops and see if it still leaks. if it does, take your cartridge to the store (any reasonable HW or plumbing store should have a replacement) and get a new one. then reverse the process to reinstall.
If you send me the model I'll get you more specific instrucitons and pictures...

Wet ceiling from my bath exhaust fan, how to stop?


Probably due to 1 0f 2 things...
1- Not enough power in the exhaust fan to take out all the mist /steam from the shower.. or

2- Condensation build up due to too much steam at one time.
(especially if fan is NOT ventilated properly)

If you have access to the fan, see if the label states the CFM 's it can remove. May not be enough for the size bathroom you have.

Both of these can be solved by installing a larger capacity fan system. Make sure to vent it to the outside of the home too, since venting to a cold attic area (in winter) can cause even more condensation to drip down.

I have a steam shower cubicle and when the water is switched off it still drips from the shower head,it only stops if I run the hot water tap in the sink


Most likely the issue is the unit is not isolating the water when turned off. Inside the shower valve will be an on off valve that will likely look like thus 06a0e29a-a81e-4b1d-b746-6d8bf0394774.jpg if you can locate one of these and replace your dripping will be resolved. Alternatively if this is only dripping from the larger monsoon in the roof, this can drip for a while after use as it holds a fair bit of water.

Can also try selecting one of the other features when not in use such as he back massage jets ( if you have a 3 dial valve) if it still drips then the problem will almost certainly be a replacement on/off valve

My steam shower is dripping water when it is turned off... all water is turned off.. please contact me since my water is dripping and is costing me money! the drip is where the steam comes out.. my number...


You have to turn main water off to house, then in side shower head is a gasket / otherwise known as a 0-ring, that needs replacing. Yes, a 50 cent part is causing this. If you don't know how to replace shower head 0-ring, just take shower head to any home depot,they will put it inn for you. Just make sure you turn main water line to house off, otherwise real leak. Let me know if helps. Thanks mike

My shower will have been turned off for hours all of a sudden it gives one large gush [drip] then will not drip for a while but will do so intermittantly. ps. this is a shower not a bath tub / shower


This is not necessarily an issue, air enters slowly and eventually lets some water escape. This may happen until the water is lower than the highest point of the shower discharge circuit.

Hi, my shower faucet /head drips regularly how to repair the leak?


You need to order seals and replace them. Typically, dirt in the water system damages the rubber (neoprene, plastic) soft parts. Sometimes the damage wrecks metal parts, but this is less common.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

I have a Kohler K-7 steam generator/shower and after using it just fine, water now just pours out of the steam outlet - even if the unit is turned off at the control head. I have had to close the inlet...


There is a float valve interior of the steam generator that supplies water to the generator unit. There are no parts available for that unit, and Kohler was useless re: repair. I have the same unit and mine is doing the same thing. I took it apart and there is a washer worth about a nickel that is inside the unit. I flipped the washer over in mine and it worked for about a week....then back to the same problem.

The kohler steam unit keeps shutting down prematurely


Since I don't have your model number for this, I am going to attempt an answer for you. Yes, there could be a filter but not always. Sometimes, the sensor on these units can become stuck closed and is sending a false error. Does the unit seem to be working? If it is, then it probably is a false signal. If not, the there could be debris that has gotten into the water lines. Either way, if the unit is new, then it will be under some sort of warranty. I would contact either Kohler or an authorized service rep.
