Hi,

follow the instructions below to successfully disassemble your Deluxe Shower head in order to solve this problem:

Unscrew the showerhead from the pipe coming out of the wall. This can be done by hand but sometimes requires a crescent wrench or large pliers. The head may be held on with a screw, which you'll have to remove.
Look at the threads inside the showerhead where it screws into the pipe. There should be a small washer made of plastic or a rubber O-ring. Replace it if it looks even a little damaged or brittle.
Wrap the showerhead stem with Teflon tape or pipe sealer (pipe dope) to seal the connection.
Remount the showerhead on the stem. Don't overtighten. Hand-tightening should suffice.
Turn the water on and off. Wait several minutes and check for drips or leaks. If the showerhead is still leaking, you may have problems with the shower's water-control valve and need to replace the whole shower head.

Keep me posted....

Regards.

You can get a sudsy water solution and brush it on all over the place especially around joints and look for a leak via tell tale bubbles. If it is the water heater that has the leak there aren't too many places where you can have the leak and it should not be all that hard to check out.

Garbage Disposal Leaks from the bottom.


Hi GF,

Unless there is a leak at the sink gasket that makes it appear that the unit is leaking from the bottom, it's probably the main seal in the unit. It's generally not worth it to attempt disassembly and repair, especially if the unit is 10 years old or older.

Just remember to make sure the power is off before you attempt any
troubleshooting or replacement.

Be safe...

What causes excessive oil usage in B&S engine?


The piston rings are going bad, or you have a leak some where.

Look for leaks by washing down the unit so you can see where the oil is coming from.
It may only leak when running, so you may have to run it until it warms up and then look for the leak. Most of the time i notice the dipstick tube o-ring is bad at the bottom of the tube. Replace the o-ring to stop that leak.

If its the piston rings, then your motor probably smokes while its running or when you really work the motor such as mowing thick high grass.
You spark plug will be oily and indicate to you that the rings are allowing oil to pass by.
To fix that, you have to freshen up the top end of the motor, with new rings and possibly new piston if the cylinder needs bored.

Check for leaks first, then pull the spark plug and see if its oily.

If you looking for POP3 SMTP Mail Servers then it would be

Not all coolers look like radiators. I wouldn't think it should cost that much. Try somewhere else.
