Question about Home
The water that comes out water jets on my shower panel is not powerful, the water just seems to drip down instead of shoot straight, how can i fix this? there is also a light that I don't know how to switch on, can you help?
See if the showerhead will unscrew, and then see how much water comes out of the pipe. If the flow is good, clean out the showerhead by running water backwards through it. If it's clogged with sediment, you may have to soak it in vinegar or CLR cleaner, which removes calcium, lime, and rust.
Google the fixture by make and model to see how to operate the light.

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

This is a simple fix. The tools you need are: cresent wrench. You want to remove the shower hear off of the pipe coming from the wall. On the inside of the end off the shower head there should be a small plastic disk remove it. It will have a series of holes this is called a water saver. The holes get stopped up with minreals take a tooth pick and clean them out. I see this all the time. If that does not work it will be in the valve

SOURCE: No water coming out of shower
First you should check the screens st the ends of the hose to be sure they are not clogged. The shower head as well. Otherwise it could be the water control valve, solenoid or thermal cut off.

Make sure the drip is continuous because the shower head will drip for a few minutes until it empties out. Replace the cartridge or washer kit if it keeps dripping.

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...
