Leaking Shower Heads

​It can be annoying to experience a leaky shower head. People often like to have a strong and steady stream when they get in the shower. It is not a good idea to waste excessive water spraying all over your home bathroom. Sending excess water to the drain may also increase your bill on a monthly basis. A Better Plumber is an expert in helping customers solve any problem related to leaky shower heads.

​If the leak is not emanating from the shower head, we can also help you resolve the problem. One important step that our experts take is by ensuring that the leak is coming from your shower head. For free flow of water, we will check the parts that form your shower head. Our specialists will check to make sure that your shower head gets attached in the normal way.

These valves are designed to enable water to flow into the shower. Our professionals know how to attach the valves to ensure water flow into your shower head. Damaged and rusted valves will be replaced with a new one.

Water often comes with some minerals. These minerals can build up or accumulate over time to block free water flow into your shower head.
