Problems in your shower are definitely inevitable. There will always come a time that your shower will stop working, but this do not mean that you immediately call the service of a plumber. A lot of bathroom shower repairs could be handled without the experts. All you need is some skills, time and buying the needed parts.

The first thing that you have to do when this problem occurs is not to panic. In dealing with shower issues, it would also help if you have a cool head. With this, you could think better and you could do the needed repair properly.

Leaking Shower Head

When you see a leak in the shower head it simply means that your seals and gaskets need replacement. If ever you see that it is only the gasket that is damaged, it is better to simply replace the two. When one is damaged, the other one will also be damaged soon.

First, see to it that you shut off the valve that controls the water in your shower. If there is no valve, you really have to cut the main source of water.

Removing the gasket and seal is important before you go to the plumbing shop to buy a new one. For a perfect fit, make sure you bring these damaged parts in the hardware.

Before you assemble everything back, see to it that you cleaned everything in it well. Below are some tools that you might need.

  • Crescent wrench
  • Screwdriver
  • Caulking

Misaligned Glass Doors

Most of the bathrooms today have two sliding doors that are placed in different tracks. This keeps them from banging each other. There are just times where one of the doors could get out of its track. This would make opening and closing the door difficult and would require too much effort on your part.

All you have to do is to simply tap the door back into place. See to it that you do it gently or with enough force only in order not to break the glass door. If this does not work, you could lift the door and get it back into place.

Replacing the Sweep

Time will also come that your sweep would need replacement. This is not a difficult repair to do. All you have to do is remove the sweep by removing some screw.

In buying a new sweep, see to it that you bring the old one to purchase exactly the same. Installing it is the same as how you got it out from its place – just the opposite.
