    Joe,

    it is dripping from the shower head.....



    Thanks!

    JOE:

    The head is not leaking from thread connections.There is no diverter either as this is strictly a shower assembly.Water drips 24/7.



    The water flow and temp is controlled by a single round door knob shape control.Are there cartridges in this type of assembly that need replacing? Not real familiar with Kohler products,only the cheap stuff! LOL

    Tried downloading a photo of this item,but the file is too large..Hope you can help me out

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

How do I fix a dripping shower head in a stand-alone shower? We have already tried to replace the valve assembly but it still leaks.


Obviously this is a leak in the valve. They are no fun to work on. Some of the higher end models of valve have seats that you can change and along with the ball and other hardware, that should stop the leak. If not you will have to replace the whole valve assembly.

Kohler rite temp with diverter. When the tub is turned on water leaks out the shower head. Changed the diverter didn't fix problem.


You could have a restriction in the tub spout or just too much pressure. Diverter only restricts flow to tub spout so any restrictions to the tub spout will cause water to go up to shower head.

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.

Make sure you fitted the rubber O ring on the end of the shower flexible hose. That will seal the water pipe.

Shower stall in master bath of a 15 yr old home. the shower started having water problems after about 1 year, leaking water onto the drywall next to the stall. we have tried everything-recalking, sealing...


Did you use plastic pipe? What about the shower head? Does it have a rubber o-ring in it? Pull the pipe out of the wall at the shower head and peek inside for the o-ring. If it is there, just snug up the pipe, do not over tighten. We were ready with crow bars in hand to destroy a brand new shower we just finished, because we thought we had w broken pipe, Then the owner says he torqued up the shower head as tight as he could and I read where it had to be just finger tight. One more place to check is the faucet itself, take off the trim ring and look in there for drips. It could be filling up the wall cavity and stay wet for days. I would take apart the drywall on the other side before busting up the tile again. Check it out.

Kohler shower hose leak


If the problem is solely because of the rubber washer with screen you can buy any cheap replica hose and use the washer that comes with it. If the issue goes away you are done. If not, switch heads and see if the issue follows the head. If it does then there would be a crack in the head at the connection. If neither solves the issue then you must buy a new hose.
