Showerhead Leaks

Showerheads, like everything else in life, wear out over time. Leaking showerheads are typically caused by old age.

If you suspect this is the issue then simply replace the showerhead.  Another culprit is a crack or defect in the shower head.  The solution for this is the same; replace the showerhead.  Finally, if the showerhead is improperly installed then of course it will leak.

Now if the showerhead has been leaking from day one this could be the cause.  Reinstall the showerhead and see if the leak persists.  The good news about shower leaks is that most of us do it yourselfers can fix these leaks.  The problem should be addressed before larger issues become a problem, such as inevitable water damage from leaks.
