Open Question

My hydramax shower is constantly dripping from the showerhead. It's like the shower unit which is behind the wall won't turn off completely. (it's definately not the hose or showerhead that's broke) I have taken the silver fixtures off the front of the wall but can't find anything to tighten. Any help would br greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: kohler shower diverter leaks (behind the wall)

if you have a closet behind the shower or a wall you may be able to get to the diverter without damage to the tile ,are you sure you can't just change the cartridge? most times this is all that is needed to fix a problem like yours.

SOURCE: leak where Grohe shower head attached to the threaded pipe

using a pair of vice grips wrapped in a soft towel( to prevent scractching) turn the shower head in a counter clockwise direction to remove it then apply liquid teflon (real-tuf) to the threads on the shower arm and tighten the shower head but dont over tighten it liquid teflon is more effective at sealing leaks than teflon tape and it can be wiped clean

SOURCE: The faucet leaks, behind the wall when the shower

The most common reason for basement leakage is from the seal at the drain or the seal behind the overflow. With the overflow, the water trickles down after bouncing off your body and back onto the tub. This possibility MUST be eliminated first before determining the next step, Turn on the cold water and fill the tub and let the water go into the overflow for about 5 minutes. This will simulate someone in and using the shower. Check for leaks in the basement.

This test, as simple as it is, will also implicate bad plumbing connections at the valve itself behind the wall as well as eliminate backsplash from the showerer bouncing back onto your control valve(s).

If you have a leakage, wait a day and, with the drain open, turn on the hot/cold valve(s). and waste some water for another 5 minute test. This test eliminates the overflow as a suspect, and with the drain open almost always eliminates the drain as well. Hey..in plumbing there are no perfect answers.

If you still have leakage and no one is showering you have pretty well isolated the valve or connections to the valve. If you don't have leakage, it points to water bouncing off the body and onto the control valve(s) at which point resealing would be in order.

You can get leakage also if the caulking around the tub where the tub meets the wall has gone south. Stamped out steel tubs (common in rental apartments) have open corners so if the wall-to tub caulking is poor then the shower bounce off the body will easily trickle to the basement. This is not an issue with cast iron or fiberglass/plastic tubs.

If these tests truely point to the valve(s), repost your ? and refer to the drain tests completed, and supply as much information as you can about the brand and age of your valve(s)

How do i install showerhead


REmove old showerhead using two wrenches, one to hold the stem from the wall steady, then twist the head counterclockwise. Use the same wrenches to install the new one, twisting the head clockwise to tighten. But before you put it on, clean the threads on the stem with a rag and wrap teflon plumber's tape around the threads clockwise 4-5 turns. That keeps it from leaking and makes it easy to remove in the future.

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.

Husband just installed 174939-SS-I showerhead. When water is turned on all you get is a dibble of water?


This showerhead has two shutoff valves, one on the showerhead itself and on on the hand-held unit. when turned perpendicular to the shower arm (the pipe that comes out of the wall) or the handle of the hand-held unit, the water will not flow. Try adjusting adjusting these. You will get the feel for what position these should be in with a little trial-and-error.

Did this fix your problem? If not please reply and we can try something else.

Water leaks shere showerhead joins the shower stem


when reconnecting the shower head to the pipe coming from the wall..

did you use some pipe tape, pro dope or another type of joining compound?

this seems likely to be the problem.. if you don't have any on hand, visit a hardware store and ask their staff for pipe tape for plumbing and you should be pointed into the right direction.

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.

Water does not come from the shower head


Hi,
If your showre head has an external adjustment (usually on the face of the head) make sure that it is opened. Shower saver type valves have a push button on the pipe from the wall to the showerhead, usually close to or are a part of the showerhead. Make sure that it is opened, if you have one. Once done, remove the shower head and turn the water on. If you get water, look into the shower head. Most come with a water restrictor and it can come out of position and block the passage of water. The restrictors can vary in appearance, but usually they consist of a rubber washer and plastic disc, and are in the back of the showerhead where it unscrews from the piping from the wall. If you can get water without the shower head on, but no water through the showerhead, you can take it apart and look for restrictions or just replace it. If you cannot get water after all that, the problem is in your faucet or piping. Most Delta single handled faucets that I'm familiar with have a spring and cup washer valving arrangement. Those equipped with scald gard are somewhat more difficult to work on. Parts are available from H/Depot, Lowe's and similar. Hopefully the problem is in the showerhead proper, and not in the valve.
Best 'o luck, --W/D--
