Shower Head Repairs

Does your shower-head leak water? It should not. That leak is a sign that there is wear and tear within the showerhead and it needs attention. Lucid Plumbers are here to help you with all your home plumbing needs.

We have offices throughout Australia and experts on hand who will mend your leaking showerhead. Is water streaming at full force through the holes in the showerhead? When it is in use you may find that water is streaming backward and flows out – behind the showerhead.

If there is a blockage or buildup in the showerhead water will not flow out correctly. It can be forced back. Have you noticed a change in the water pressure of your shower? Worn parts inside the system can also cause leaks.

What Causes a Showerhead to Leak?

Depending on the design of your showerhead and taps there are a few places that can cause the leak.

  • Worn rubber washers (O-rings) in the shower taps
  • Worn rubber washers inside the showerhead
  • A malfunctioning diverter valve (For showers connected to bathtub taps.)
  • Defective cartridge in the valve body (For single swivel taps that control the temperature)
  • Clogged showerhead holes

The showerhead can leak at the head, at the swivel join, or the faceplate.

What Causes Shower Heads to Clog?

What kind of water do you have? Hard water is the technical term for water that has a higher level of calcium and magnesium. Common problems include scale build-up inside sinks and appliances.

Over time, minerals and scale can build up in the showerhead. It can be trapped in the filter and form blockages in the holes.

Can I Unclog a Showerhead?

While there are home remedies to help clear the holes in a showerhead it is not quite as simple as it may seem. You need to soak the entire showerhead overnight in a solution of vinegar and bicarb, or salts.

This helps to break down the buildup. You will then need to brush off the debris and clear the holes.

  • Taking apart a shower head is not an easy job
  • You do not want to accidentally break any connections
  • You do not want to damage any seals or valves

Experts with professional skills and tools can assess and determine the cause of a leaking shower head. It is possible that you may clear your clogged shower head but that the leak is from worn washers.

Are Your Taps Leaking When They are Off?

Along with a leaking shower head, you may have water that leaks from the taps. Worn washers mean that the seals have cracked or worn down. Replacing the rubber washers will fix the problem.

Drip, Drip, Drip

Do not ignore that single drip. Your showerhead is not working efficiently, and the water pressure can be affected. It will waste water and is a sign that your shower needs some TLC.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
