March 16, 2020by leakypipes

Taking a perfect steam shower is one of the little enjoyments of life. While having a perfect shower, you can forget all your everyday stresses and anxieties and take advantage of the rejuvenating effects of hot water on your skin. 

But sometimes your experience at the shower may not meet the high expectations that you expect.  In this article, we have discussed the five most common showerhead problems which should be rectified as soon as possible.

Some of the common showerhead problems are 

  • Slow drain shower
  • Leaks
  • Water pressure
  • Bad shower head
  • Bad ventilation

Slow Drain Shower

While showering, even if you use much less water than a bathtub, the showerhead pumps large amounts of water in a very short period of time. If you have drainage issues it definitely leads to the pooling of water over your bathroom.

It can also be harmful because the water that collects is generally soapy and slippery while waiting to drain. Slow-moving water also promotes the growth of bacteria and mold over a period of time. 


One of the best things about the shower is that the flow of water is quick, easy and effortless. But in seconds a leaky shower will undo all these advantages.  

The reason behind the leaky shower is may be due to the damaged pipe that injects water to the showerhead.

If the sources of leakage are not identified and repaired at the early stage, it may definitely end up in serious issues. 

Water Pressure

The low water pressure may definitely ruin the perfect working condition of the showerhead. There are a number of causes behind the low water pressure old galvanized pipes that have accumulated waste.

If you experience low water pressure, buying a new shower pump might be worthwhile in some scenarios. 

A shower pump will improve water flow through the showerhead and will create a much more stimulating shower experience. Find out if our handy guide can take you to a shower pump.

Bad Shower Head

There are many different types of showerheads on the market today, from high pressure handling to heavy rain models in particular. 

Choosing the form and tension of the shower is very personal but when the head of the shower is old, clogged or corroded it can make a difference in the activity.

Bad Ventilation

Every bath has to be well ventilated, or condensation accumulation can cause moisture and other related problems. 

If there are no windows opening to the outside of your shower or toilet, you should make sure that some extractors are in place and switched on when appropriate. The basic Xpelair Bathroom fan is an outstanding cost-effective option for ventilating your toilets.
