SOURCE: triton opal electric shower overflow pipe

hi rob the problem is due to an activated thermal overheat switch, you cannot reset this unit as once it is activated it will require a new unit, its a nuisance i agree as i come across this regularly, however its condusive of a scaled up unit so you eventually turn up the shower setting higher to get the water hotter, & inturn activates the thermal switch.
According to which model it is the part is not that overly expensive, you can phone triton direct 7 they will post a new spare to you

Kindly

SOURCE: replace new moen 1200 stem, still leaks due to scratches housing

The proper fix for this is to hone out the scratches

take steel wool and wrap it around a dowel or piece of wood or ust stuff it into the housing and turn back and forth to smoth out the scratch

if the scratch is real dep you wll have to go to harbor freight and get a honing tol that fits on the end of a drill

the stem should have some type of crown washer that you should be able to get an assortment from lowes , ace or hd

If you are asing for a recommendation for a good silicone I always use GE silicone it is the best

as a last resort (if nothing else works to stop leak

I would take cartridge wall and streatch teflon tape as tight and smooth as possible to block water coming up between housing and
cartrideg this is not recomended by mfg just a spa (my initials) certified suggestion

Good luck

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...

Water leak behind shower wall when i turn on hot and cold water


If it only happens when you turn the water to the shower on, it must be a problem with the piping after the valve. Take the shower arm out and wrap it with Teflon, it could be as simple as leaking threads. It could also be a leaking/poorly soldered copper fitting, or even a defect in the enclosure itself.

How do I repair a Danze single handle tub and shower faucet which leaks benind wall when water is on but does not leak when is off?


this is caused because its not in the value...its either in the shower head seal or pipe or the tub spout...you have to turn it on and some how watch and see where it is coming from....sometimes you can pull back escushion from shower arm and look with flashlight when it is running and if you see leak where arm is screwed into pipe...unscrew and reseal with teflon tape and tighten...if not you will have to cut wall behind system and watch for area of leak...good luck

I a leak under my tub, think it's from the shower, it doesn't leak with a full tub of water or ewhen you empty the tub, but when you're in the shower a flow of water comes out under the shower piping side...


Check out the faucet plate mounted on tub side for a good seal. Water can leak down this plate causing it to look like the valve is leaking.
When you are in the shower it splash's water against the valve and water will run down behind it. Check the tub spout and if you have tile check the chaulked joint where tub and wall meet.

Leak in the shower is leaking water through the ceiling


SInce it is wet both under and behind the shower I would rule out the drain floor pan and drain system and think it most likely to be the pipe leaking from the mixing faucets to the shower head. Find studs directly behind shower faucet, n each side. Locate the center of the studs and put vertical lines up and down on the center line of the two studs closes to but outside the shower  faucet on each side. Approximate 6 inches or so  up and down for the height of the shower faucet (Valve, not head) Put Horizontal lines across between the two line at both the top and the bottom/ You now have a square.Using a Razor knife(Sometimes called a box knife, stanley 99a for example) cut into the lines of the square back and forth as deep as you can. Cut an x  acrossthe square corner to corner again as deep as you can . Lightly hit the center of the x until the drywall caves in . Cut the remaining drywall out for the square. Now while  the shower is running you will be able to see whee the leak is. Use pipe seal after disassembling the loose fiting or repair the leak iun what ever manner is necessary. Replace and repair the hole made in the drywall  with another piece of drywall, tape and joint cement. .

Coolant leaking vw Passat 1.6 1999 heat on with fan, window fogs.


is the floor board on passenger side wet???If yes it's the heater core, which should be accessible by removing the glove box. Did u check the oil, to see if it 's milky??? some times on the vw of any kind, they spring a slow leak on the head gasket which could cause the abnormal starting in the morning. Which then, as the engine warms up causes the gasket to swell up and seal itself untill the engine cools completely off again. Eventually the gasket will completely fail and u'll have to bring it to a shop or get a repair manual to replace the head gasket.

Shower leak


this may not be a grout problem . I want you to run the shower and check the shower arm behind the wall plate and the toe tester(spout ) for water leaking behind the wall.If you dont find a leak than their could be a problem with the rubber membrane under your tiles.
