Shower Valve Leaks

We usually use two types of Shower Valves in the bathrooms

  1. Non Concealed Shower Valves
  2. Concealed Shower Valves

Several issues can cause shower valves to leak. Here’s a breakdown of the common culprits

  • Worn-out Cartridge: The internal cartridge controls water flow. Over time, its seals and O-rings can degrade, causing leaks around the handle or continuous dripping.
  • Damaged Valve Seat: The valve seat is where the cartridge sits. Mineral buildup or corrosion can wear it down, creating gaps that allow water to seep.
  • Loose Connections: Vibration or temperature changes can loosen the connections around the valve, leading to leaks.
  • Faulty Installation: Leaks can develop over time if the valve wasn’t installed correctly initially.

Angle Valve Leaks

  • Degraded Washer: Angle valves have a rubber washer that creates a seal. This washer naturally wears out, eventually causing leaks around the valve stem.
  • Loose Packing Nut: The packing nut secures the stem. If it loosens, water can leak from around the stem.
  • Internal Corrosion: Corrosion from hard water can damage the valve’s internal components, leading to leaks.
  • Damaged Connections: The pipe connections to the angle valve can develop leaks due to corrosion or wear and tear.
