Your bathroom requires regular maintenance. Shower heads and other components can break down. Postponing shower repairs can quickly become costly.
Here are 6 signs that your shower is nearing its end.
1- Knocking Pipes
Knocking pipes can mean that there are loose valves in the pipe system, high water pressure or loose support straps. If you leave it, you will soon have a leak.
2- Cracks in the Molding
If you have tiles and grout in the shower, you may see cracks or chunks missing. This can lead to water damage and mold in the walls.
3- Discolored Water
Yellow and orange water indicates rust. Eroding copper pipes will give the water a green tint. If the water in the shower is anything but clear, you have a problem.
4- Constant Dripping
Dripping can mean that the water pressure is too high. It may also mean that there is something wrong with the on/off valve in the taps.
5- Water Drains Slowly
If the water drains slowly, it could mean that there is a clog in the drain. If the same is true for the sink and bath, it may mean there is a clog in the main line.
6- Fluctuations in Temperature and Pressure
Both of these are very serious. It may even be cheaper to replace the whole unit. Another way you may reduce the temperature fluctuations is by installing high efficiency toilets everywhere.
