Most common cause for this is the inside of the diverter valve is plugged with sediment or bits of rust. -Take it apart carefully, lay parts in order and check inside the chamber and top orifice for junk. -Replace in opposite order once cleared.

Q: Why does your shower keep stopping and saying low pressure?

Why does your shower temperature change when someone flushes the toilet or uses another sink in your home?

Your water pressure is low. Consequently, when cold water is diverted to another application such as a toilet or a sink, the amount of cold water available at the shower mixing valve decreases as the low pressure is unable to keep up with the shower's demand. This causes a hotter mixture at the shower head. The solution is to either improve the cold water supply to the shower or to replace the shower control valve with a temperature compensating type. Pressure balancing is the cheapest and simply changes the shower temperature according to the pressure in the cold and hot water lines. When the toilet or sink is used, reduced pressure to the shower valve is detected and the valve reduces the hot water pressure, thereby maintaining the temperature. The more sophisticated approach is a thermostatic shower control valve. These are significantly more expensive, but will not reduce the pressure at the shower head (a drawback of the pressure balancing valve). The thermostatic valve would be required when one shower control valve is operating several shower heads. Moen, Kohler and Delta all make both types of control valves. They can be readily obtained from a local plumbing supply house.

Do you keep your tampon in when you shower?

Yes, if you want you can keep your tampon in when you go in the shower.Whether you keep your tampon in while in the shower or not doesn't really matter as you can still shower either way and being in the shower doesn't effect your tampon in any way. It is best to keep the tampon in because then you don't have to worry about getting blood on the towels when you get out of the shower. If you shower without the tampon in just rinse before getting out of the shower, then dry-off quickly before putting in a new tampon or a pad.

Why will a shower curtain fly toward the shower when the shower is running and hang straight down when it is off?

When you have a hot shower steam is generated and, because it is warmer than the surrounding air, it rises. As the steam flows upwards, cooler air flows in to the lower level of the shower. If the shower is not fully enclosed, the steam will flow out the top of the shower area and the cooler air will flow in near the base of the shower. If the air cannot easily get around the curtain, it will push it inwards as it flows past. Ways to address this are:fully enclosing the shower to keep the steam inweighting the curtain basehaving significant gaps beside the curtain to let air inhanging the curtain so it is held against the shower base lip by its own weight by positioning the rail well outside (>100mm beyond) the line of the base. (This will mean that if the curtain swings outside the shower base it will drip on the floor, so needs a high lip to hold the curtain in.)This effect is caused by a small reduction in the air pressure of the column of air that is inside the shower curtain. The reduction is caused by the pressure of the water being sprayed out of the shower head having to drop from a higher pressure towards normal atmospheric air pressure. This effect is known as the Venturi Effect.The air does not quite reach normal atmospheric pressure until it gets out of the column of air formed by the shower curtain. Because that column of air is at a lower pressure than the air outside the curtain, the curtain gets pressed inwards by the higher (but normal) air pressure in the rest of the room.This effect happens the same no matter if the water temperature is hot, medium or cold.

A shower curtain is something that you hang in your bathtub or shower enclosure, to keep the water from getting all over the floor, when you shower. A plastic shower curtain is a shower curtain made from plastic. I think most of them are made from vinyl, actually.

Why does a well keep starting and stopping?

Wells are actually electric pumps that supply the water pressure to a home's water. When a faucet is opened, the pressure drops, activating a sensor which starts the pump to maintain pressure. So only if there is no one inside (or out) using water and the pump is cycling is that a problem, and indicates a ruptured pipe.

How do you use veet in-shower hair removal cream for dry skin?

Instructions on the box state to put on, keep out of the shower for one or two minutes, get in the shower and keep water off of the cream for 2 to 6 more minutes. I have found that you can just stay out of the shower for the whole time and maybe turn on the shower for the steam, which is probably the helping factor for this product.
