Showers And Tubs Repair

Bathtubs and showers are made not only to keep you clean but also relaxing. Now imagine if you have to put up with a clogged bathtub or a shower that drips slowly. Drains and leaks are the two most common problems of showers and bathtubs, but other plumbing issues can be equally annoying.

Showers and Tubs parts

  • Faucet- there are two forms of faucet, there is a cartridge faucet and a compression faucet. You should know the type of faucet you have to be able to troubleshoot it.
  • Tub spout- this directs water into the tub.
  • Drains- carry waste water out from the tub and keep the water from overflowing
  • Diverter- takes the water from the pipe to the showerhead

Common Issues with Showers and Tubs

  1. Drain Issues

Items like hair, soap and even mineral deposits from hard water could block the free flow of water down the drain. The solution to this can be as simple as pouring hot water into the drain, using vinegar or a plunger to unclog the drain. If your water still does not flow, contact a plumber.

  1. Low water Pressure

Water running slowly from your showerhead could be as a result of lime scale buildup. The solution to this is to use a descaling solution or replace the showerhead. Contact a professional for a suitable showerhead replacement.

  1. Leaky Showerheads and Tubs

If your showerheads and tubs are consistently wet even when you are not using them, then you have a problem common to most showers and tubs- leaking. A cracked or rusty gasket can bring about a leak with your tub while the water supply valve and the washers may need replacement in your showerheads. 

  1. Leaky Faucet

A leaky faucet might be as a result of faulty rubber washers, seals or gaskets in the valve compartment. If any of this is defective, you can easily replace it on your own or call a plumber to replace the whole faucet.

Proper maintenance of the showers and tubs keep it in excellent condition but no matter how careful you are, some parts of these fixtures are going to develop faults at some point. Some of these you could simply rectify on your own but to prevent bigger problems, you need a plumber for others.
