Showers are a must-have in every bathroom, especially if you've had a long day. Facing problems like a leaking shower or a slowing dripping shower may be highly inconvenient. Shower sets come with various showerheads, and they should be installed appropriately to avoid plumbing issues. If you want to install or replace your shower sets, contact My24hrsPlumbing immediately; we have years of expertise in plumbing installations and other plumbing services.
Investigating The Showerhead
Look at the splash openings if your shower head's water is splashing unevenly. The hard-water mineral build-up may block the outlet or delta gaps of the showerhead. If you find that the showerhead won't stay in place when it's rotated, try replacing the O-ring that secures against the swivel ball.
A typical showerhead may be taken apart for cleaning and maintenance. However, if you don't understand what you're doing, you risk damaging the entire shower head, forcing you to replace it entirely. So, if you're not sure, leave it to the professional handyman. Our expert plumbers can provide practical solutions without any trouble on your part.
A Broken Shower Head Must Be Replaced
If you dropped your shower head on the floor while taking a shower, it should not split away completely. If your floor is constructed of hard stone or if the effect of the fall is particularly significant in some manner, your showerhead may break.
If your shower head is broken, you should replace it. In this case, the showerhead is useless and must be replaced. If you don't have the room in your schedule to buy another one, our experienced My24hrsPlumbing can help you get the component(s) and repair it quickly.
What Causes Shower Leaks?
The majority of shower leaks in Singapore are caused by temperature fluctuations and the natural movement of a structure. Water may enter the bathroom tiles and run down into the walls, ceiling, and other parts of the house due to these shower leaks. This form of water damage might be severe, mainly if it proceeds unchecked for an extended period.
When the seals of a showerhead are damaged, water may be leaking from the shower. Seals can also become brittle or deteriorate with age. This causes water waste and, in some cases, water damage. Shower movements can also contribute to leaks. Although it seems unlikely, the ground does shift over time. When this happens, the structure will move slightly due to the movement of the earth around it (This part is actual). As a result of these changes, waterproofing seals may break apart, causing leakages.
Over time, alignment problems in pipes and equipment will deteriorate due to water pressure and movement, allowing leaks to develop. If the shower joints are not adequately tightened, the water pressure will cause the connections to loosen over time, and leaks may occur.
A leaky shower enclosure may also result from using a robust cleaning solution. To help waterproof the item, most shower materials include a layer of the waterproofing agent. A powerful cleaning solution might cause the waterproofing substance to erode more rapidly, resulting in a shorter lifespan for the shower material. As a result, it's essential to pick your cleaning chemicals carefully.
Leakages can occur when shower components and equipment aren't aligned properly, as previously said. However, even if the components and equipment are correctly positioned, a leak may still develop if the materials are of low quality. Because water can seep through an alignment gap and reach the other side, causing a leak, lousy tiling in the bathroom tile causes leakage.
Signs of Shower Leakage
If you think that you have a shower leak, pay attention to the following indications of a shower leak:
When there is a leak behind the shower, the wall directly behind it may be harmed. Paint bubbling or even paint peeling on the wall are signs of this. If wet stains aren't paint-related, they might be visible on the wall.
If you notice any grout missing in your shower, water may have leaked in. Grouts combine water, cement, and sand that often runs between bathroom tiles. The continual exposure to water will cause the grout to separate. Even though the grout is wet during showers, it isn't continuously exposed because it is on a one-time basis. Grouts come loose due to persistent moisture at an excessive amount and pressure over time.
If your house has wood flooring and a rotten eggs-like stench emanating from a particular location near the shower, this could be a sign of leaking. When water comes into contact with the wood as it leaks, these microorganisms will "consume" the wood voraciously, causing it to decay.
Leaks will cause the tiles to loosen and potentially fall out since dampness can weaken the grout holding them in place.
Showerhead Replacement Tips
One method to save water is to swap your regular shower head for a low-pressure one, which will slow down the rate at which water comes out. So instead of taking brief showers to save water, install it and use it on occasion. Showerhead replacement with a low-pressure option is simple enough; you may get it at any hardware shop.
Another alternative is the adjustable flow design. This showerhead allows you to adjust the water flow's speed according to your needs. Showerhead replacement helps you save money and water while preventing property damage due to leaks in the pipes.
