A hot, relaxing shower is a luxury that most people look forward to after a long day. However, the last thing you want to deal with is an annoying leaking shower head.

A leaky shower head encourages wastage and leaves behind a messy pool of water every time you step into the shower. It is vital to repair the shower head before it is too late. And that is when you need the local plumbers from Big Blue Plumbing.

Why Is Your Showerhead Leaking?

Several factors can cause your shower head to start leaking. In our years of experience, we have found the most common reasons to be:

  • Faulty or worn shower faucet or inner seals
  • Clogged shower head (minerals, calcium deposits etc.)
  • Corroded shower heads.
  • High water pressure

If these leaks coming from your shower head are left unrepaired, it could lead to more severe issues like flooding, water damage, and cracks in the flooring.

While you will find dozens of home remedies and DIY solutions for leaky shower heads, most of them are temporary measures. In such cases, you need the expertise of an experienced plumber.

Leaking Shower Head FAQs

Is your leaking shower head still bothering you? Read the most commonly asked questions from our customers:

There are a few reasons why your shower head might be leaking water. The most common reason is that the washer inside the shower head is worn out. You can try replacing the washer to see if that fixes the problem. If not, there may be a problem with the packing nut or another part of the shower head. You can also try cleaning mineral deposits out of the shower head to see if that helps. If you’re still having problems, it’s best to call a plumber to take a look.

If you have a leaking shower head, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue. First, make sure that the showerhead is tight against the wall. Try tightening it with your hand or a wrench if it is loose. If that doesn’t work, you may need to replace the washer. You can unscrew the shower head and take out the old washer. Put in a new washer of the same size and screw the shower head back on. Once you’ve done this, turn on the water and see if the leak has stopped. If it hasn’t, you may need to call a plumber.

Leaking shower heads are a common problem, and a few different things can cause them. One possibility is that the washer in the shower head is worn out or damaged. This can happen if the water pressure is too high or the shower head isn’t regularly cleaned. Another possibility is that there is a crack in the shower head itself. Drops or bumps can cause this, and it’s generally not something that can be fixed on your own. If you have a leaky shower head, it’s best to call a plumber or home improvement professional to take a look and fix the problem.

If you have a leaking shower head, one possible solution is to use a plumber’s putty. Plumbers putty is a type of sealing compound that can be used to fill gaps and leaks. It is made from petroleum or vegetable oil and minerals and dries to form a flexible, water-resistant seal. To use a plumber’s putty to stop a shower leak, simply apply the putty around the base of the shower head, making sure to fill any cracks or holes. Once the putty is in place, allow it to dry for 24 hours before using the shower. If the leak persists after using the plumber’s putty, you may need to replace the shower head or consult a professional plumber for further assistance.

A leaking shower head is often caused by mineral deposits that build up over time and block the small openings in the shower head. This causes water to flow out in a continuous stream rather than in individual droplets, resulting in a dripping shower head.

To fix a dripping shower head, try cleaning it with vinegar or a toothbrush. If that doesn’t work, you may need to replace the shower head altogether.
