Shower and bath repairs include fixing and adjusting the showerheads, faucets, drains, sinks, and other plumbing parts of the shower and bath that can become faulty over time. Common problems include clogged shower drains, lukewarm water, a broken sink stopper, or even water pressure not being as strong as you'd hoped.
Shower Head Repair
When water has extensive mineral or calcium build up in it, it can cause a chalky residue to linger on the items its touches, such as our drains, sinks, and faucets. When the shower or water pressure of your shower comes out with less strength than what you remember, it could be time for a calcium or limescale cleaning. Removing the debris in and around the spouts of the shower head can allow for easier water flow during your shower routine.
Clogged Shower Drain
When your showers slowly start to become a bath, it’s probably time to have your shower drain cleaned. Since we often use various types of gels and soaps, these types of liquids can find themselves stuck in the drain and against the wall lining of the attached pipes, making it more difficult for water to easily pass through and drain. Another common cause of a clogged shower drain is the build-up of hair in the drain. Body hair falls at quicker rates than you may think when in the shower and can cause the drain to clog up relatively quicker than other sinks in your household. We recommend taking measures to have your shower drains cleaned by professionals ever so often, and ensuring that you remove hair from the surface of the drain before it has time to reach the pipes and latch onto the sides of them and build up.
Bath Stopper Not Working
Do you have a built-in bath stopper that's controlled by a lever on the faucet? Or how about an actual plug that's fitted into the drain itself? If neither one of these types of stoppers seems to hold the water in for bath time, there may be a problem with the lever that controls the stopper from behind the faucet or beneath the sink. If the lift or knob is faulty that controls the bath or sink stopper from behind, you'll notice your water levels declining and failing to hold in the water. When called, we can assist with adjusting and fixing the lever that moves and operates the bath stopper or sink stopper, as well as recommending a new type of stopper for those that have chain-link or lose ones that should be fitted into the drain.
Water Not Heating
If you've turned on your shower or bath and noticed that your water simply isn't heating to your desired temperature, don't fret. Usually, this can happen when the thermostat isn't adjusted properly and can fail to deliver the measure to heat your water to the desired temperature. We recommend checking the thermostat and your water heater for any smells, leaks, or unusual sounds. If you find nothing to be wrong, you can still get in contact with us to have us reconfigure your thermostat so that it can heat your water to a comfortable temperature. This happens for both tanked and tankless water heaters, as the thermostat provides the same important function for the two.
