Most people take it for granted that the water will come out when it is turned on. But sometimes, this just doesn't happen. The water in Southwest Florida is very hard so check your shower head and make sure that the opening holes are clean. Florida water creates a lot of calcium and lime build up. Make sure you check for that before you call a plumber. If you cannot clean the holes yourself, give us a call and we will be glad to help.
Another problem could be the cartridge on the rough-in valve, which is the valve behind the wall, which may need to be replaced. The other option is that the valve itself may need to be replaced.
If you are planning to re-tile the shower, keep in mind that this would be the perfect time to change the valve and trim in the shower. Some people choose not to replace the rough-in valve,
but they are making a mistake. By changing it now, you will save yourself a lot of money later on, when it eventually needs to be replaced and the new tile removed and then reinstalled.
A showerhead nowadays can provide more than a simple shower. You can choose from hand held showers, slide bars, body sprays, body jets, water tiles, rain-heads, even digital operated systems. Whether you want to feel
invigorated or relaxed after your shower, there is an option for every want and need.
Some people prefer a smooth wall where grout does not need to be cleaned. You can build a roll-in shower for wheel chair accessibility. A modern shower can be functional and yet upscale and trendy. We will be happy to show you what your choices are and help you pick the best one for you.
