SOURCE: a single handle delta shower control lets water

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.

How do I fix a dripping shower head in a stand-alone shower? We have already tried to replace the valve assembly but it still leaks.


Obviously this is a leak in the valve. They are no fun to work on. Some of the higher end models of valve have seats that you can change and along with the ball and other hardware, that should stop the leak. If not you will have to replace the whole valve assembly.

I have a steam shower cubicle and when the water is switched off it still drips from the shower head,it only stops if I run the hot water tap in the sink


Most likely the issue is the unit is not isolating the water when turned off. Inside the shower valve will be an on off valve that will likely look like thus 06a0e29a-a81e-4b1d-b746-6d8bf0394774.jpg if you can locate one of these and replace your dripping will be resolved. Alternatively if this is only dripping from the larger monsoon in the roof, this can drip for a while after use as it holds a fair bit of water.

Can also try selecting one of the other features when not in use such as he back massage jets ( if you have a 3 dial valve) if it still drips then the problem will almost certainly be a replacement on/off valve

Drips from shower head when in off position


Hi.

Deltas can be either cartridge type or cup and spring type; both are easy to repair. Try to operate the valve several times full range and then shut off. If the problem is caused by a bit of trash in the valve assembly, you may be able to work it out with the problem solved. I have gotten away with this on several occasions.
If that doesn't work, cut off the water to the shower at source block valves, if you have them. It nay be necessary to shut off the water to the house at the water meter. Drain down the house side of the water supply at the lowest point, usually an outside faucet or flush the toilet, Gain access to the valve inner parts by removing the handle (single handle faucets usually are attached with an allen screw on the underside of the handle, removing the chrome escutcheon and the wall cover plate. Slowly and carefully remove the inner piece and look for any apparent damage. If yours is of the cartridge type, it is easier to simply replace the cartridge. If it is the cup and spring type, repairs involve changing out the bad components. I suggest that you place all of the parts that you take out in a plastic baggie and carry them with you to the parts store, or one of the big box stores, where parts should be available. Reassembly will be in the reverse order of the tear down.

Best regards,

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

Shower arm is loose


The best way is to cut a hole in the wall and fix it right. That will entail replacing the surface material, probably sheetrock. You could try some silicone sealant around the shower arm behind the eschusion. It will still move, but not much.

Kohler K-9511-BN MasterShower Shower Arm & Diverter Doesn't Work


As a helpful hint , on these models, When installed some plumbers or home owners use plumbers putty to seal the threads and in some cases tape.
Most of the time the putty or tape gets pushed through the system if too much was used.
Check by removing the shower head and testing the pressure and blowing anything else through, then checking the head itself for foreign objects.
Kohler has a cleaning and care page on thier web site if it needs cleaned.

Leaky posi temp shower valve


coming from the uk it sounds that when you mention it leaks at night its a possibility thats when the water pressure increases & the valve starts to drip?

i know its not a solution but it may help you understand why its dripping at night.

Also the seals might be damaged in which case thats why its dripping check them for damage. make sure when you put the new cartridge in that you put some silicone grease around the seals as this helps the insertion & helps protect the seals from damage.

Kindly
