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.

The shower only runs hot water no matter where the handle is turned...even on the cold setting.


You need to replace the mixing valve. It's not terribly hard to do, if you have some tools and, if the valve is not stuck in the fixture. Here's a video on how to replace it. Take note of how the tabs on the valve are positioned so you can put it in the same way it came out. If cold and hot water are reversed, you need to take valve back out and rotate 180 deg. and put back in:

This is assuming you have hot water elsewhere in the house and not ot the shower. Check to make sure you have hot water at other faucets.

I have no hot water


If all the other faucetts in the house are ok, you probably need a mixing valve. They are pretty easy to change unless they are stuck in the valve but, usually with a little coaxing they come out fine. Pay attention to the tabs when you take it out so you can put back in the same way. If your hot and cold water are reversed, pull the valve otu and rotate 180 deg. and re-install. Here is a video:

I have a wireless Grohe shower that keeps dripping hot water constantly


Your mixing valve(faucet) has a bad valve and is allowing the hot water to bypass and leak thru shower. You should replace the bad mixing valve or the faucet to repair and stop the leak.

The hot and cold are reversed on our single handle shower (no tub faucet -- shower only)


Hot on left.
Cold on right.
Some single handle faucets have bleed-over where both hot and cold enter mixing valve each time handle is turned on, even when faucet calls for just cold or just hot.
Otherwise maybe a do-it-yourself plumber got pipes backwards... or maybe the tub used to be on other side of wall, and tub was moved during remodeling but pipes were not changed.

To fix problem:
First of all, turn off shower faucet. Turn on Hot at sink and put ear against shower faucet listening for sound of water flowing through the mixing valve.
If mixing valve is working fine, you need to open wall and investigate more.
For example if you have access door, reach in and feel which pipe is hot.
Pipes might need to be reversed if problem comes up in home inspection, otherwise the problem will not harm anything.

Only warm water from the tub/shower


You can cap the lines at the tub faucet to rule out tub faucet. It maybe mixing there.

Faucet may be bad also the safety stop will alow you to change water temp it can be tricky to adjust water temp.

The shower tap is broken. The top came off of the plunger that changes the water flow from shower to tap and all the other pieces fell into the tub. Is there an easy way to fix it. I am definitely not a...


it may be very simple--you have to get your head underneath the tub spout and look to see if there is a "set screw" on it---if there is ,you unscrew it, which releases the screw holding the spout in place on the pipe coming out of the wall---jimmy it a bit and the spout will come off---don't yank too hard---if there is no set screw, then all you do is turn the whole tub-spout counterclockwise carefully, and unthread it from the pipe in the wall..replace w/ a new tub-spout--anywhere from $5 to $500

Is the heater working?


The mixing valve where the hoses attach to is stuck at the plunger inside of valve.or the magnets burn out.that pulls the plungers in side of valve. If this may be problem, replace valve. This is called a mixing valve.
