Get back to quality showers and baths — for good.
Cartridges are one of many common types of faucets and are often found in showers. This type of shower uses holes in order to regulate the flow of water from your shower head or faucet. If the cartridge wears out, then your shower valve will not function the way that it is supposed to and will ultimately lead to the need for shower valve replacement once they begin breaking, corroding, or experience dry-rot. If you suspect that you are experiencing issues with your shower or tub valve, give us a call at Plumbing Solutions, LLC today.
What Causes a Tub or Shower Valve to Leak?
The shower valve is the part that controls water flow into your tub or shower. It’s best to have this replaced if you are having problems with it, but there are some other things that can cause a leaky shower valve.
One of the most common causes for leaks is that the cartridge in the handle has gone bad and needs replacing. This will require removing two screws on top of the panel to remove the old cartridge and tighten the new one in its place
Additionally, if the valve is installed incorrectly, it will cause water leakage over time. This can usually be fixed with a simple adjustment.
