Reasons To Replace Your Shower
Did your plumber just inform you that your leaky shower faucet is beyond repair? Did he advise that it would be cheaper to replace the entire unit then to repair it?
Or does your shower look old and tarnished? Maybe you have just changed the design and color theme of your bathroom, and hence want to replace your old shower faucet with one with new metallic finishing.
Probably you are eyeing that feature-packed electric shower with its wide range of water effects.
There are many reasons why people may want to replace their showers or showerheads.
Other than for aesthetic reasons, if the replacement is due to problems with the showerhead, there are some simple steps you can take.
Troubleshooting The Showerhead
If you find that the water spraying from your showerhead is uneven, try cleaning the spray holes. The mineral deposits from hard water may be clogging up the outlet or inlet holes of the showerhead.
If you find that the showerhead does not stay in position while pivoting around, try replacing the O-ring that seals against the swivel ball.
A typical showerhead can be disassembled for cleaning and repair. But make sure you know what you are doing, or you may risk damaging the whole showerhead and by then, you will have no choice but to replace the entire showerhead.
So if you are not confident, just leave this to the professional plumber. Our trusted plumbing experts are able to provide you cost-effective solutions without any hassle on your part.
A Broken Shower Head Must Be Replaced
If you accidentally dropped your shower head onto the floor while having your bath, more often than not, it should not break apart easily. However if your floor is made of hard granite or if somehow the impact of the the drop is especially big, it may break your shower head (as seen from the pictures).
In this case, the shower head is irreparable, and must be replaced with a new one.
If you do not have the time to buy a new one, our trusted plumber is able to help you procure the part(s), and fix it for you efficiently.
Pampering Yourself With Different Showering Experiences
After a long day at work (especially with Singapore’s hectic work culture), nothing beats stepping into a hot shower to wash away all the stress and aches from your body.
More and more people are upgrading their outdated showers to enjoy a custom bathing experience with modern showers that offer various spray options.
You may also like electric showers as their digital displays and convenient control boxes make changing water temperature effortless. They provide on-demand hot water and adjustable water pressures. You will be able to save on your water bills if you opt for the eco-option which reduces the water flow.
On the other hand, a shower with an adjustable nozzle increases the range of water effects and using the power shower option can get you a therapeutic massaging effect as you bask in your shower.
Upgrading Your Old Shower To A Shower Mixer
A shower mixer is a modern invention that allows us to experience the joy of showering at a comfortable water temperature consistently. It uses thermostatic control to maintain the same water flow and water temperature throughout our shower.
Many even have a safety feature to prevent children from scalding themselves with hot water.
