A slow-draining shower is usually due to a clog in the pipes. Over time, hair, dirt, and soap build-up will accumulate in a shower drain. This issue is even more common for those with long hair since the length prevents water and debris from draining completely.

In other cases, a clogged vent pipe may be to blame. Because vent pipes open up at the rooftop, they may become clogged by sticks and leaves over time. While this is a less common cause of slow shower drains, our plumber can determine if this is the issue after snaking the drain.

There are several common signs that your shower may need repair. First, if your pipes start knocking when you turn the shower on, you may have a valve problem or loose support straps. Second, if you have very low water pressure, you may have a burst pipe leaking somewhere. Third, if your showerhead is continuously dripping, extra water may not be draining correctly, or your water pressure needs adjusting. Fourth, if you have a slow drain that doesn’t get better after using a pipe snake, you may have water pooling in the drain or a broken pipe. Finally, if your water is not staying heated or is a strange color, it needs immediate repair, and you should call a plumber.

Several issues may cause poor water pressure. For example, there may be a clog in the showerhead, or you may have a low-flow model. If it’s clogged, it’s likely due to mineral build-up. If the faucet is a single-handle type, the internal mixing valve may need a replacement. Another common cause is a faulty water pressure regulator.

There are many valves located throughout your plumbing system. If one of them is closed, you may experience a change in your water pressure. If you experience a change in water pressure only when you use hot water, your water heater may be to blame. Additionally, if your home has old pipes, they may corrode and leak, leading to water pressure issues.

If you are experiencing water pressure issues, your water heater is sweating, you have no hot water, your drains aren’t draining, or you can’t stop your leaking faucet, you need to reach out to a professional plumber.

To fix a loose shower tile, you need first to remove the tile so you can replace the adhesive. First, cut out the grout using a utility knife. Then, loosen and remove the tile using a hammer and a chisel. Next, use a chisel or a screwdriver to chip away old grout from tiles. Then apply a layer of your new glue to the wall with a trowel. Remember to apply a layer to the back of your tile as well. Press it into place and allow it to set. Then, mix your new grout and place it into the lines around your tile.

You may need to reapply depending on how moldy the grout is. While you can usually clean moldy grout, you may need to replace it if the mold is significant.
