Leaky showers can cause many different problems that could be annoying or even destructive. Depending on the kind of leak you’re experiencing, the repairs may simple enough to fix on your own—dripping shower heads or faucets are usually minor repairs that you can take care of yourself. However, major leaks that threaten flooring or ceilings on lower floors require professional assistance, and that’s where we come in.
Common Shower Faults
The most common types of showers and the most common types of faults that they develop:
Mixer Shower Repairs
A mixer shower simply mixes the hot and cold supply to a manually adjusted temperature. The most common faults experienced in these showers are directly as a result of lime-scale build up within the shower which can result in the controls becoming stiff to use or a leak from the shower head or shower controls. A shower servicing, sometimes requiring a new internal mixing cartridge or seals will solve 9 out of 10 problems with mixer showers.
Electric Shower Repairs
Electric showers act as a sort of mini boiler. They heat the incoming cold water to a desired temperature within the shower unit itself. In effect, they are very efficient kettles. Just like a kettle, the boiling of this eventually results in a coating of lime-scale within the shower unit. Depending on how hard the water your home gets is, you will probably have to replace an electric shower unit every 2-5 years.
The faults in electric showers are mainly connected with a lime scale build up or an electrical fault caused by an internal leak. Luckily, all of the failed components can be replaced, and our experienced professionals are capable of repairing any make or model of electric shower.
Thermostatic Shower Repairs
A thermostatic shower, as the name itself suggests, has an internal thermostat which automatically maintains the water at a selected temperature no matter the fluctuations in hot or cold water supply. The main problems that can develop in these kinds of valves:
- Water can get out, either through the shower body itself or the shower head, when the valve is turned to the off position.
- Failure to hold the set temperature. This is often referred to as ‘temperature fluctuation’. In this situation, both external and internal tests need to be run until the cause of the symptoms is discovered and treated. Either way, our bathroom plumbers can diagnose the problem accurately within half an hour.
Power Shower Repairs
Power showers look similar to an electric showers but they are very different in the fact that they require both a hot and cold water supply, and they have pump instead of a heating unit. A power shower increases the pressure of the water to make your shower more enjoyable and effective. Faults are usually related to an electrical supply, trapped air or pump motor.
