Question about Moen Showhouse S112BN Waterhill 10 Rainfall Showerhead, Brushed Nickel

1 Answer

Hours after I take a shower, the showerhead will start dribbing

The dribbingly can sometimes go on for minutes and be pretty heavy. Then it stops. I'm sure it's partially due to the large showerhead having built up water, but what causes it to then dribble out and should I be worried that I have a defective showerhead. It's a 10" rainshower head

No, the showerhead is probably OK. My guess is that the head is relatively level, and the design of the nozzle allows water to pool inside. When you take a hot shower and turn the shower off, it begins to cool. As the shower head cools, a slight vacuum is formed, pulling air up into the showerhead. As you reach equilibrium, water is allowed to discharge as a dribble. This continues until the water has all been displaced. The fix for this is to turn the showerhead to the side, allowing the water to drain more quickly, and allow the air in. Try it.
Best regards, --W/D--

It's the Mini. Just dribbing and not filling more than 1/3 of the cup

It might be time to clean your Keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through 5-6 glasses after that it should start brewing regular sized cups again.

My delta 400 shower is dripping

Take off the shower head and check the rubber washer inside. If it is cracked, off center, or missing, you will have a leak. Also, make sure you are using plumbers tape (teflon tape) around the male threads on the shower pipe that comes out from the wall. Sometimes the pipe leaks at the point where the pipe and showerhead are fastened together, but it looks like the shower head itself is dripping because water always flows downward so it goes over the showerhead at the top and drips off the side.

Dripping showerhead mirasport 8.5 kw - shower is approx 15 yr old when switched to off continues to dribble then drip for hours after

It is normal for instantaneous electric showers to drip after shutting down. However, yours sounds as if the water stop valve is failing.
You could have this replaced ( or even cleaned out, sometimes they can be affected by calcium build-up on the seal) but realistically it's probably best to consider unit replacement....15 years is an excellent service span for an instantaneous electric shower.
Hope this helps.

Flow of water thru shower head is barely a trickle

There is a chance there is mineral deposits in the showerhead openings. You can try products sucha as limeaway by unscrewing the showerhead , soaking in the limeaway for a few minutes and rinsing with water. You may have to repeat this a few times to get it clean.

We have an Ondine Hand Shower. Ondine Interbath 112.18.1M 25GPM/9.5 LPM MAX and the head is clogged and we do not get a full spray - How do I clean it? S. Seipp

Either remove it and soak it in CLR (calcium,lime, rust remover) or fill a container and tie it to shower outlet in such a way that head is emersed in the CLR. You can buy it at pretty well any hardware store, or home depot. If you don't want to try that, use vinegar, and soak it as well, I usually try to do it at end of day when shower won't be used, then let it sit in solution overnight.
