5 Signs You Need To Replace Your Shower Fixtures

Has your shower head been giving you trouble? Is it leaking or fluctuating pressure or temperature? It may be time to replace your shower head.

How do you know when to get a new showerhead? Please keep reading to discover five signs that it's time to replace your shower fixtures.

Your Fixture Is Leaking

One of the easiest ways to know when to replace or repair any fixture is when there’s a leak. If your showerhead is constantly dripping, there could be several issues. A leaking shower fixture typically means something is wrong with the head, and it's time for a new one. However, you should hire a professional who specializes in shower plumbing to help find the root of the problem.

Fluctuating Water Pressure

Have you ever taken a shower and the water pressure randomly fluctuated? If so, you need to replace your shower fixtures. Your water pressure shouldn't fluctuate uncontrollably or weaken—it should be a steady stream. This could happen because the showerhead is loose or has wear and tear.

Noticeable Buildup of Sediment

To ensure the water is safe to consume, treatment plants will treat it with chemicals and natural elements. However, over time, you may begin to see sediment buildup. This is because the showerhead's filter has become dirty, and sediment accumulates in and around the fixtures.

There's nothing a new showerhead fixture can't fix! This calcium-like buildup is noticeable and unattractive. Replacing your old fixture with a new and modern one can benefit your hair and skin.

Unpleasant Wet Smelling Odor

Bathrooms are the perfect place for mold and mildew to live rent-free. This is because fungi flourish in places with high-humidity levels and are difficult to remove. If you smell an unpleasant, wet odor, it's likely mold and mildew growing. If you see or smell mold or mildew growth, replacing your showerhead immediately is best. When these fungi grow, they can cause several health issues and trigger allergies and asthma attacks.

Sudden Change in Temperature

There's nothing worse than enjoying a warm shower, and then it turns icy cold. Drastic and sudden changes in water temperatures can make you cut your shower short, and it can damage your skin and hair. Frequent fluctuations in temperature can be a sign that your shower may have a few issues, like a faulty shower valve or a poor-quality showerhead.
