The bathroom is one of the parts of a home that gets the most amount of foot traffic. Whether it’s for perfunctory hygienic purposes or other uses, ensuring that your bathroom plumbing fixtures, particularly the shower, is working correctly should be a priority.
At Vern’s Plumbing, we offer reliable fixture repair in Gainesville, VA to keep your shower working perfectly. We talk about some of the most common shower problems that we can help address.
A Clogged Drain
One of the most common problems that homeowners reach out to us for is clogged drains. Your bathroom drains can get clogged by hair, soap scum, and other substances such as shower gel that were not completely dissolved by the water. When you notice slow-clearing drains, contact a plumber. In the meantime, you can invest in a drain hair catcher to prevent future clogs.
Clogged drains can also result in unpleasant smells in the bathroom due to bacteria growth.
Low Water Pressure
Showering when there’s low water pressure can be frustrating, especially when you’ve been looking forward to washing the dirt and grime off at the end of the day. Before you make a call to your water provider, check with our fixture repair services experts whether the clog in your pipes are due to mineral deposits.
Other possible reasons could be pipe leaks, pipe corrosion, half-open valve, and shared pipelines. Involve a professional to check out your showerhead and determine whether you’ll need a plumbing fixture installation.
A Leaky Faucet
Plumbing fixtures will corrode faster if your home is supplied with hard water. That said, after constantly using your shower, the faucet seals can wear out and start to leak. Leaks accessing your floor tiles and bathroom walls can eventually grow mold that may also start to smell bad.
