Top Tips To Help Stop Your Shower Dripping

Do you ever find that your shower keeps dripping, even when switched off? Annoying isn’t it! We are regularly called out by customers who face this problem and want to know why it happens. One of the most common causes of this problem relates to showers which are attached to bath taps. With a diverter valve you lift and press down to send the water either to the showers or to the taps. Despite the fact that your bath taps may be fine, your shower may keep on dripping but how can this happen? What is the Cause? In many cases, it will be as simple as an air lock causing water to become trapped in the head of the shower. When the water flow to the shower is cut, it will run back down the shower hose creating an airlock in the head of the shower. Because of this, not all water will run be able to run back down the pipe and excess water will remain trapped in the head of the show. This will then continue to drip from the head, causing a great deal of annoyance to anyone near the shower
