Shower drips & runs when off

Posted by craig lewis, on
Can you provide me some info as to the cause of the above and likely cost to repair?


Hello It depends on the type of shower, if it is electric our advice is to replace the same and replacement costs start at around £ 160 + vat for a basic shower. If the shower is a mixer valve or bar, the fault may be in the seals, in our experience they never repair perfectly as the body of the shower wears, this then leads to customer dissatisfaction with the cost of the repair, so again we recommend replacement, the cost would be £ 250 + vat upwards depending on type of shower.
