It's called water-hammer. I vibration from the water pressure. A snub-end pipe can be added to devert the vibration.

What is wrong with the shower handle? Loose? Too tight? Leaking? Not working?

On the thermostat side of shower remove handle by removing handle cap. Once handle is removed if there is a circlip then the thermostat pulls out otherwise will unscrew.

No conversion, it would need to be replaced with a single handle faucet.

Most of the time when i get called out for a broken shower handle, i have to replace the unit. but this does certainly depend on whether you have an individual tap or mixing system and what exactly needs to be repaired

Wrap the threading in teflon tape

Look under the handle for a small ALLEN SCREW (hex head). Loosen it and slide the handle off.

the pies are connected so when you turn on the shower the vaulve in the pipe going to the other shower might not be all the way closed thus causing it to leak

This will involve breaking open the shower wall, taking out the one handle unit and rearranging the pipework in order to replace it with a two handle valve unit. This not a DIY job, call a plumber to do this to save yourself the headache of having to call one later

All showers need valves. They can be for the water supply, balancing the water and control of the shower. Without the valves, your shower will leak, causing damage to the surrounding areas.

Take the end cap off, unscrew the screw in the handle, take off handle, put exact same new handle on, screw it down, put cap back on.

On single handle shower valves, designed to let cold water first and turn handle farther to mix hot water to desired setting. If hot water turned on first, possibility of getting scalded. If seperate hot/cold handles for shower, shower valve needs work.

Yes. It works just like a sauna, you may not notice it but your bodies temperature rises when your in the shower under hot water, causing you to sweat.

It is possible that chlorine could cause issues with your contacts after being in the shower. Unless they are causing an irritation, there is no need to throw them out.

First off - be on the outside of the shower and screw with it clockwise and anticlockwise and see what happens. Works every time.

need universal handles for Bath & Shower, they will replace old style American Standard, need a handle with an adapter to fit different size stems. Preferable modern style handles if possible

The iron burns explosively,causing a large shower of sparks.

Yes, very simply. You remove the handle and take out the splined disc immediately behind it. This now allows the handle free movement.

With a handle or lever and some like Delta have a option to use a ball type

Is there a leak behind the wall? Does your hot water system have a re-circulation system in it? Is the shower very close to the hot water heater? All could be factors that keep the handle and water warm.

It is often around 4 inches, but it varies depending each shower.

Of course. An eclipse depends on the orbital positions of the Earth, the Moon and the Sun. A Meteor shower depends on the orbital positions of the Earth and any one of the many sources of meteoroids which orbit the Sun. There are about 20 annual meteor showers spread across the calendar, notably the Perseids, which peak on August 12 of each year at over 1 meteor a minute, and what is probably the most spectacular meteor shower - the Leonids, which peaks on a day near 17 November. These showers are independent of the positions of the Moon and the Sun.
