You have a bad O ring, and need to replace the cartridge, you will need to shut the water off before attempting to change the cartridge, you can shut the main water supply off, or you can shut the water off behind the surround at the mixing valve, take the cartridge to your local hardware store to match it up. Please remember to shut the water off !!!!
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: shower head leaks water when water is turned on

take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.

SOURCE: no water coming out of shower in master bath

I had a similar problem. Turned out to be simple to fix. Unscrew the shower head to see if water flows. Mine had a piece of solder stuck in it.

My creda shower 8500dl won't shut off water keeps

Switch off the power at the main switchbox!

Unscrew the shower cover to reveal the main valve/switch assembly (green in my case)

On the green valve you can line up the bit that moves to select power settings and remove it

Undo the two screws holding the outer switch frame and lift it off

Undo the two screws holding the valve body in.

Remove the valve body, underneath you will find an ordinary tap washer - probably split

Replace the washer - I didnt have an exact match in my toolbox but drilled the middle out of a large tap washer to match

Looking to replace my bath faucet and shower head. Have turned off the water supply in my basement but over an hour later I still have water dripping out of the tap. Wondering what the problem is and how...

Water pipes throughout yoru house need to be drained, this is assuming that the water is actually turned fully off. Also, turn off the hot water tank, as sometimes that keeps expanding and pushing water. Open faucets in the basement and on the top floor to facilitate draining.

Water fails to flow through shower head although the bath and sink taps work

unscrew the shower head counter clockwise. Most shower heads have a wire mesh screen built in. remove it and wash out with water. Before re installing I would turn water on to be sure your water is reaching the shower head. If not your problem is at the water valve

Hi i have installed a few bosch gas geysers at our lodge in mozambique.The problem is that the water gets hot when we turn the water on then the heat just shuts off and the water gets cold after a short...

The problem with all that type of water heater is that once the hot tap is turned on sufficient flow must be maintained through the water heater to keep the main gas burner alight. If the heat adjuster is turned up to high, then the person using the hot water will turn it down to a low rate which means the main burner will turn off and result in cold water. Try setting the heat control to the lowest setting that still gives hot enough water. If you have a thermometer adjust control for a temperature of around 50 to 55 degrees Celcius. You may have to fiddle with fine adjustments to get the temperature and flow rates to maintain a constant output of hot water. You may still have intermittent problems. If the heater only supplies baths or showers you could set the temperatuer even lower (45 to 50) to ensure that the hot tap is used more than the cold which will maintain flow and therefore heat.

Fitting stand alone bath taps

These are normally connected with a chrome waist & overflow assembly that passes down into the floor where it connects into the plastic piping with the use of an 1.5" trap adapter.

All that can be seen on the finished product is the chrome parts.
