One of the first things you’ll want to do to stop this leaking is to locate the shut-off valve. The shut-off valve for your shower is often located behind the wall of your shower. You’ll have to look for an access panel to locate this valve and turn it off, both the hot and the cold. After that, you’ll have to look into the faucet style you have and potentially replace the faucets altogether. Before you go through the trouble of taking faucets off and replacing them there are a few other options you can try to stop the leak.
Clogged Shower Head
A clogged showerhead may actually be the culprit of your leaky shower. When limescale builds up in the nozzle it can slowly build up and release overtime making it seem like a leak. A good way to clear this up is to soak your shower head in white vinegar so that water can flow freely instead of a drip.
Replace the Washer
Sometimes the washer in the showerhead can become worn and cause a leak. This is a simple fix by just replacing this washer. Just take off the showerhead and locate the collar nut. Once you locate the collar nut loosen it to find the swivel ball and washer. Replace the washer and put the showerhead back together and it will be good as new.
