Showerhead Leaking in Centre City?

4/5/2022 (Permalink)

A shower is running. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego.

Our Centre City Uptown team responds to more water damage emergencies each year than any other form of property damage. Knowing how to fix a leaking shower head can save you money, and it may prevent more extensive repairs later. Here is some information from the Environmental Protection Agency about shower head leaks:

Showerhead Leaks

A showerhead leaking at ten drips per minute wastes more than 500 gallons per year, and that's the amount of water it takes to wash 60 loads of dishes in your dishwasher. Some leaky showerheads can be fixed by making sure there is a tight connection between the showerhead and the pipe stem and by using pipe tape to secure it. Pipe tape, also called Teflon tape, is available at most hardware stores, is easy to apply, and can help control leaks. For more complicated valve leaks in showers that drip when not in use, contact an experienced handyperson or licensed plumber.

Tip: It's also a good idea to check and, if needed, replace the washer or "o" ring inside the showerhead while making this repair.
