Good luck. It is best to get the repair kit for your unloader. Many unloaders are not marked very well and it is difficult to find the kit needed. They have all of the parts that need replacing. ( usually a new ball or two, seats, o-rings and seals) The kits usually have a diagram of what goes where. You might want to make your own drawing and match each part you take out with the part in the kit and where it goes. It is amazing how they all look the same when they are out of the unloader. Did this go here or there????
It sounds to me like the rubber o-rings are getting old. Try posting your concerns on the Peerless Customer Support webpage. They can help you identify the model of your faucet and what repair kit to purchase. (Repair is fairly easy, the faucet is repaired in-place).
Write down the type and model of faucet you have. Most hardware stores have rebuild kits for faucets.( washers, rubber o-rings and or gaskets) You will have to turn your water off and do some minor repairs. The kits come with step by step directions.
A shower head will drip for a period of time but I will assume that it is dripping continually. Servicing the Mixing Valve is what is needed to fix the continual drip. there are several 'O' rings washers that eventually wear down causing problems. These parts are serviceable and kits with instructions can be purchased at plumbing shops, DIY Stores, Hardware Stores. I hope this has helped thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck and have a great day.
