The 6 Most Common Shower Problems Homeowners in Pomona Experience

For a lot of us, taking a shower is a part of our daily routine. If shower problems are disrupting your daily routine, get in touch with Preferred Plumbing and Rooter Service. We’ve been providing expert shower repairs in Pomona and other Inland Empire communities since 2016.

During that time, our Pomona plumbing contractors have repaired all kinds of shower problems. In this post, we’re going to discuss the six most common shower-related problems homeowners in Pomona experience. Some are minor issues while others are plumbing emergencies that need to be dealt with ASAP.

Clogged Shower Drains

Hair and soap residue are two of the leading causes of clogged shower drains. Most shower drain clogs can be cleared using a plunger, plumbing auger, or chemical drain cleaner. If these solutions don’t do the trick, you may have a deep drain clog. Cleaning deep drain clogs is a job best left to a professional plumber with the proper tools and training.

Leaking Shower Faucets

Leaking shower faucets are another common shower problem. Shower faucet leaks are commonly the result of loose or damaged gaskets, seals, or rings. Shower faucets leak waste water and promote mold and mildew growth. If you’ve never taken a shower faucet apart before, call a professional plumber. They’ll not only be able to repair the leak but also check your shower for additional plumbing problems.

Hot Water Issues

No hot water, water that’s either too hot or not hot enough, sudden changes in water temperature, and not having enough hot water are just a few of the most common hot water-related shower problems. In most cases, these problems can be traced back to your water heater. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your water heater serviced, now’s the time to call a plumber to inspect your water heater and perform any needed repairs or maintenance.

Low Water Pressure

It’s not unusual to experience low water pressure when work is being performed on municipal water mains. However, persistent low water pressure when you shower could indicate a problem with your home’s plumbing. The problem could lie with a damaged or clogged shower line or a partially shut main water valve. Low water pressure can cause damage to pipes, fixtures, and appliances. If you’re having to deal with low water pressure issues, have a plumber stop by to take a look at the problem.

Blocked Shower Head

Over time, mineral deposits can build up, blocking the pinpoint nozzles of the shower head. This problem can usually be addressed by removing the shower head and soaking it in vinegar overnight. If the blockage is due to a damaged shower head, it may be time to replace it. The good news is, that replacement shower heads are inexpensive and easy to install.

Bad Odors

If the inside of your shower is smelling bad, the problem could be due to a clog, sewer line backup, or mold growth. If cleaning your shower isn’t getting rid of the smell, you need to call a plumber to take care of the problem.
