Vancouver Shower and Tub Repair
Taking a shower should be a hassle-free, easy activity. But when issues arise that prevent you from showering, it provides two big problems: The inability to shower now and the inability to shower later – until you fix it.
What is more annoying than a shower that you are afraid of showering in due to leaking, clogging, seals breaking, not having hot water and more? A shower is a crucial part of everyday life and you should not have to worry about these faulty issues.
You should be concerned about shower repair if you experience any of the following issues:
- Leaks in Shower Head
- Cracked Surfaces
- Lack of Hot Water
- Low Pressure
Read below for what these issues entail. If you see any of these in your bathroom, please call us right away at (604) 879-1415.
Leaky Shower Head
A leaky shower head is usually caused by seals or inner valves in the shower head that are damaged. Not only is it frustrating, but it can cost a pretty penny for water bills if left alone. We at Hillcrest Plumbing and Heating can replace the head properly, as well as fit new gaskets and seals if that’s what needs to be done.
Getting the issue fixed saves you time, frustration and money in the long run.
Modern showers often use plastic and other surfaces to keep water where in place. If cracks do appear, the water is most likely to leak into the floors underneath the shower and cause a great deal of damage; including mold and mildew.
You may be able to notice the formation of a crack if you see that the shower surface is “bouncy” or is separating from the underlying material. This makes cracking a lot more likely, and one of our professionals will be able to take care of that!
Lack of Hot Water
Your shower should be reliable enough to provide you with the hot water you need. If your shower is not able to produce hot water, it may be a problem with the valves. However, it’s more than likely that the water heater is the real problem and this should serve as an important reminder that your house’s hot water comes from there. So there may be issues with the water heater itself, especially if you aren’t able to get hot water in other faucets throughout the house. If you think you may need water heater repairs, give us a call!
Weak water pressure likely stems from various problems within the shower head: a blocked valve or a screen that has become clogged up with mineral deposits. Such mineral deposits can block the water from moving into your shower head, resulting in low water pressure.
If you experience any of the following issues, do not hesitate to call us. We are more than happy to help you with any of your shower repair service or plumbing needs!
