Common Shower and Bath Issues

In our many years of installing and repairing showers and bathtubs in Tucson and across Arizona, we have encountered some common issues affecting shower and tub functionality. These issues include:

  • Clogged drains and pipes

Drainage issues including clogged drains and blocked pipes are one of the most common reasons why your shower or bathtub malfunctions. This issue can be due to loose hair combined with shower products to block your pipes. The blockage can lead to slow drains.

However, you can clear such clogs by yourself by using gloved hands to remove the debris. You can then flush the drain. If the problem persists, it may be a sign of a bigger issue like the other clogs being deeper in the plumbing system. We have the tools to remove all types of clogs and blockages. Contact us and let our professional plumbers handle the issue.

  • Leaky faucets and showerheads

A leaking shower faucet or showerhead can be very annoying. If you notice leaks, it could be a sign that you need to replace some pieces including gaskets, seals, or rings. If you are like most people, you may not have the skills to take apart a showerhead and check out which part needs replacing.

Shower parts are not expensive and replacement seems like a simple job. But, you may need a professional plumber to help you choose the right match for your appliance and replace the faulty piece.

  • Water pressure problems

Like a leaking showerhead, a shower without adequate pressure can be frustrating. Low water pressure may be a sign that there are some mineral deposits or debris in your appliance. Fortunately, this is easy to fix as you only need to unscrew your showerhead and clean it.

However, you may not know how to unscrew and put back a showerhead without causing other problems. For instance, you may tamper with the seals or rings and cause leaks. The water pressure problem can also be due to a faulty showerhead.  If you are having water pressure problems seek the help of a professional plumber.

Our expert plumbers Curtis Plumbing will diagnose the issue, clean the appliance for you, fix the low-pressure issue and if there is a need for a replacement we will let you know.

  • Mold and mildew buildup

Like mineral deposits building up in your showerheads and causing water pressure issues, mold and mildew can build up in your bathtub and connecting pipes and lead to slow drainage. Molds may also be due to water leaks. The mold and mildew buildup often lead to a foul smell in your bathroom.

While you can deal with the bad smell by ventilating the bathroom, you may not have solved the issues. A professional plumber may need to assess your plumbing system and fix the issue that is causing mold buildup and the bad odor. Contact us and we will help you fix the issue.

The Benefits of Regular Maintenance

  1. You avoid costly repairs. Regular maintenance for your shower and bath fixtures or appliances helps ensure you avoid costly repairs. Having a professional conduct regular assessment means that small issues are detected and fixed before they become big and expensive to fix.
  2. Extends the lifespan of your fixtures. Regular maintenance of fixtures and appliances increases their useful life. For instance, regularly cleaning your showerheads ensures they have a longer life than when mineral deposits corrode them.
  3. Ensure optimal performance of the shower and bath appliances. Regular maintenance helps improve the functionality of your shower and bathtub by solving issues like low water pressure or clogs before they compromise performance.
  4. Helps maintain a hygienic environment. With regular maintenance, you are unlikely to have mold buildups, slow drains, flooding, and other issues that can make a bathroom unhygienic.

Why You Need Professional Plumbing Services

Many of the bathroom maintenance practices may seem like do-it-yourself (DIY) activities. While you can fix many issues in your bathroom by yourself, some issues are signs of a bigger problem. Additionally, some appliances like showerheads or faucets have many pieces if wrongly put together can compromise the functionality of the whole system.

It is advisable to engage the services of a professional plumber to at least conduct routine inspections and maintenance of your bathroom appliances and fixtures. An expert plumber will also advise you on the right appliances and fixtures for your home, including those that are water-sufficient.
