While they need routine cleaning and maintenance, we don’t like to think that our shower system is flat-out in need of repair. In towns like Vail AZ, shower repair isn’t a common concern, since the dry climax cuts back on mold and the problems it causes in a shower. Sooner or later, however, every major appliance needs the attention of an expert, and your shower is no different.
Here are some signs that your shower may need repair.
- Leaks. A leaky shower head is usually caused by damaged seals or inner valves in the shower head. Not only is it annoying, but it can cost you a great deal in higher water bills if left unattended. A trained plumbing professional can replace the head properly, as well as fit new gaskets and seals if necessary.
- Cracked surfaces. Modern showers often use plastic and other surfaces to keep water where it should be. If cracks appear, the water can leak into the floors underneath the shower and cause a great deal of damage. You may be able to detect the formation of a crack if you notice that the shower surface is “bouncy” or detached from the underlying material. This makes cracking far more likely, and you should contact a professional before the problem gets any worse.
- Lack of hot water. If your shower cannot produce hot water, it may be a problem with the valves. There may also be issues with the water heater itself, especially if you can’t get any hot water in other faucets in the house. If you think you may need water heater repairs, give us a call!
- Low pressure. A lack of water pressure likely stems from a problem in the shower head: a blocked valve or possible a screen that has become clogged with mineral deposits. Such deposits can block the water moving into your shower head, resulting in a lower overall pressure.
