A dripping shower could indicate your shower valve needs to be replaced.
Halloween is drawing near and you’re beginning to wonder if a gremlin or other mischief maker has gotten into your shower. Your shower doesn’t completely turn off but keeps dripping even when the faucet is in the “off” position.
That sounds as if your shower valve has broken or worn out. The shower valve, or cartridge, is the piece behind the wall that connects the hot and cold water, according to the Washington Post. Water that drips or continues to flow after you cut off the shower is the most common sign that your shower valve is broken. Other symptoms of a broken shower valve include difficulty turning the handle or a handle that slips and fails to turn on the water.
Replacing a shower valve is a job for a professional plumber, the Washington Post says. The shower valve can easily break, forcing you to shut off the water to the entire house until a plumber arrives.
