What should you do if your shower would not turn off after you took a shower and you turned off the main to the house but it kept on running and it slowed when you opened other faucets?

The shower valve needs to be repaired! As for the water not shutting off when you turned off the main that is also needing replacement when it shut of by turning on other faucets you were simply diverting the flow from the leaking main shut off.

Shower faucets are typically made out of linoleum metal. They use this kind of metal because it is resistant to all sorts of soap scum and will not block water flow.

Use straight white vinegar to soak the shower faucets. This way you won't have to deal with chemicals.

Not really. What is he installing? What are you trying to say? A plumber can install showers and faucets. He can install a faucet in a shower. He can install any plumbing fixture. Also it should be is this sentence written correctly.

You can attach a number of shower heads to your tub, but check with the tub manufacturer first for a list of compatible faucets.

A shower curtain should hang enough inside of the tub or shower stall to keep the water from running outside. Usually an inch and a half or two inches is enough.

Remove the shower head and clean out anything that might be blocking it, such as hair or debris. Replace the shower head and turn on the water; the water should be running.

A lot of the new shower fixtures (especially the lever styles) have a "scald protection" feature built into the fixture. This will prevent the water from getting as hot a the sink faucets, by eliminating only hot water from coming out.

Now it's time to call a real plumber. == Answer== I agree. When you replace shower or tub walls, you should always replace your faucet while you can. Alot of people don't and the plumber does not like any better than you do.

"Yes. Like most stores that sell bathroom fixtures, Home Depot sells glass shower doors, in addition to other accessories, such as soap trays, shower curtains and faucets."

If you would like to add a shower to your second bathroom, a shower kit may be the easiest way to install one. Shower kits come mostly preassembled, so all you need to do is install the kit or have a plumber do it for you. Shower kits include the walls and floor of the shower, but you will still need to buy faucets and a shower head. Shower kits also come with preinstalled shelving and cut outs for the soap dish. Shower kits come in many different sizes, so you should select the one that is best for the size of your bathroom.

Moen, a plumbing supply company, has a faceplate the covers the previous holes for a double stem tub and shower valve that can be used on their single handle faucets. Google Moen faucets and look through their website or ask at your local plumbing or hardware company. Moen part # 1920

Ideally, you should shower daily.

Probably someone or something else using water that drops the pressure. The shower head will be a lot more sensitive to pressure drops than other faucets in the house.

Well if you can take a shower and use the toilet at the same time, you either installed the toilet in the shower or you are extremely flexible. This question is a can of worms because if the toilet and the shower are in the same bathroom and while the shower is running and someone flushes the toilet and the toilet overflows but the shower drain does not back up then its something in the line of the toilet before it ties into the shower , another way would be is with out proper venting of the toilet like lets say the shower drain when running is clogging the vent for the toilet then it possible for the toilet to overflow and have the shower drain fine. I personally never seen a toilet overflow when flushing it when a shower is running on the same floor and yet when the shower is off the toilet flushes normal.

Some causes for a sudden water pressure drop: 1) A big leak on the main supply line. 2) one or more faucets or shower heads opened on the same water line. 3) A utility water pump failure.
