Your shower can be your relaxing oasis away from the grind of life. It can be a place to not only get clean, but also unwind. However, your shower can also be a place of frustration and annoyance if it is not working properly. Below are four signs to look for that mean you need a shower repair. If one of these four signs sounds familiar to you, then give us a call at Minyard Plumbing, Inc., so we can get your shower repair complete and help turn your shower back into your place of relaxation.
- Low Pressure – When you turn on your shower, you should get a good, steady stream of water with a decent amount of pressure. If your water pressure has changed, then there may be a serious issue going on. You could have a leaking pipe or an issue with your hot water heater. Both of these issues will need a professional plumber to address the issue.
- Pipes are Knocking – If when you turn on your shower you hear a knocking sound, then you might have a serious issue on your hands that, if left unfixed, can lead to broken or otherwise damaged pipes.
- Dripping – If your shower still drips long after you turn it off, you are in need of a shower repair. This most likely is not a serious issue, but if can do damage if left unrepaired.
- Water Not Staying Hot – If you go to take a shower first thing in the morning before the hot water has been used and it won’t stay hot, then you are going to want to call a shower repair company ASAP. This could indicate that there is a leaking pipe or you are having issues with your hot water heater.
