After a long day, you don't want to have to deal with clogged shower heads ruining your "me time." The experts at Fast Rooter Plumbing LLC provide repairs for all shower parts, so that you never have to suffer from faulty plumbing. However, if you find yourself in a bind, you can repair your shower head on your own by identifying where the problem lies.
If your shower head's arm connection leaks, the connection is a simple fix. Unscrew the shower arm from the pipe with a strap wrench, then clean the arm threads and coat them with plumbers' joint compound. Screw the head back on and hand-tighten it. If the problem lies in the swivel of your shower head, unscrew the head from the swivel-ball ring and replace the head's O-ring. The O-ring is a seal that prevents water from oozing out. A damaged O-ring is the cause of most shower head leaks.
Grit and sediment can also cause shower head leaks and clogs. Over time, minerals from your water supply can build up and cover the openings in your shower head. You may need to disassemble your shower head and place its parts in vinegar to dissolve this buildup.
If your shower head still produces poor water pressure or sputters, the problem may lie deeper than what you can handle on your own. Fast Rooter Plumbing LLC will handle any plumbing problem that plagues your home. Call (808) 734-4938, and rest easy with their exceptional plumbing expertise!
