Fixing Your Showerhead


If you have ever been in a situation where your shower isn’t working, you likely know how frustrating that it can be. But, thankfully, with the modern setup of the showerhead, it’s a lot easier for you to fix it on your own than it used to be. Here’s a quick look.

  • Unscrew the shower head and take a look inside to see what’s going on. There could be two major things wrong that you can fix – the O ring and the pipe itself. You’ll be able to see where the leak is coming from when you open it.
  • If it’s the O-ring, you can buy another one at your local hardware store for almost nothing, and then all you have to do is pop it in and your shower is ready to go again.
  • If the problem is the pipe, you’ll need to take it off and use plumbers’ joint tape when you put it back together. This should, in most cases, fix the leak for awhile.

Now, of course, there are some issues with showers and showerheads that aren’t this easily fixed, and if you need help with something like that, make sure that you go ahead and give us a call.
