Leaky shower

My shower has been quite a nightmare… I decided that I was going to do a DIY approach & handle the plumbing on my own.

  • I bought all the necessary parts for the guts of the shower.

I bought the valve, head, drain, & brick for the shower. I installed & felt like I did a task well done. A few months later my shower head started leaking. I learn it could be valve failure. I had to take out some of my brick to access the valve & maintenance it. Then a few months after that, the same thing. I did a bunch of googling & thought it would be the same thing. Time to replace the valve again. Instead of spending all that money, time, & retailing, I just called a licensed plumber. I was sick of stressing over something a professional could do. I had a replacement valve at the ready & that wasn’t the issue at all. There was obviously a leak in my wall that was going to cause major disfigurement if left unobserved. A pipe repair, leak detection, & scrub up was all that it took. The plumber was in & out with minimal disruption in my powder room. I have to say the best part was not worrying about my plumbing at all. I liked just handing over money & not considering a thing. I was able to relax, have a fixed shower, & prefer the rest of my afternoon. I will alway hire a plumber from now on.
