How Does A Shower Tap Work?

When the shower tap is switched on, turning the handle, water will flow through the diverter valve into the shower head, hand shower or other outlet selected by the user. The thermostatic valve and pressure-balance valve will regulate the water parameters and ensure that the shower water is at the pressure and temperature required by the user.

Ultimate Guide on Choosing the Right Shower Tap

Since many people are using a shower, manufacturers are offering a wide range of shower sets; therefore buyers can easily find and install the shower tap they need. Here is the ultimate guide in choosing the right shower tap that could help in selecting the ideal one for you. 

Choose The Right Shower Valve 

The shower valve is one of the shower tap components to understand before purchasing.  It is usually hidden, only the handle to control the shower valve is visible to the user. 

Choose The Shower Valve Material 

material-ultimate-guide-on-choosing-the-right-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

When looking for different types of taps/faucets to install in your home, choosing the right material is important since the shower valve will be exposed to water for a long time. It is usually made from brass since this alloy is more corrosion resistant compared to steel. 

Pick The Configuration and Type

configuration-and-type-ultimate-guide-on-choosing-the-right-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Just like common types of faucets, showerheads are also available in different types and configurations ranging from a single head shower, a multiple head shower, etc. 

Check Water Pressure

water-pressure-ultimate-guide-on-choosing-the-right-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Before purchasing a shower set and valve, it is advisable to check the pressure of the water supply. This is because some valves will only function properly when the water pressure is higher than the specified level.

Shower Valve Practicality 

The shower valve should have all the features that the user requires such as being easy for tap installation, requiring less maintenance, and being practical. It is also wise to check the offered warranty.

Find Something That is Within Your Budget

budget-ultimate-guide-on-choosing-the-right-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

While companies are producing a wide range of tap faucet products with different designs, materials, specifications, and durability, one of the main considerations in choosing a shower tap and valve is the buyer’s budget. Most of the local stores will ask buyers to indicate their budget and show suitable shower taps.

Once you are aware about the ultimate guide in buying shower taps, understanding shower tap components is vital to know. 

 

Understanding Shower Tap Components

While purchasing and installing a shower tap or even getting it repaired, the homeowner should understand shower tap components so it is easier to choose the right shower and to know what is happening when getting it repaired.

Valve

The water tap valve is located at the point where the pipe with cold water and hot water meet. This valve is typically found in older showers and does not regulate temperature or pressure. 

Diverter Valve

diverter-understanding-shower-tap-components-shower-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Typically a shower has multiple outlets; the shower-head, hand shower, tub, and a bath mixer tap, and you can adjust the water supply according to your preference using the diverter valve. This valve usually has a default mode. 

Pressure Balance Valve

According to the ultimate guide on choosing the right shower tap, before purchasing a shower set, it is advisable to check the pressure of the water supply. There is a valve that balances the pressure and adjusts the pressure of the hot and the cold water according to the user’s liking.

Thermostatic Valve

The thermostatic valve works significantly in a shower mixer tap because it is responsible for regulating both the temperature and pressure of the water to ensure that it is according to the setting. This valve includes a sensor for measuring water temperature so that the temperature can be adjusted accordingly. 

Trim 

trim-understanding-shower-tap-components-shower-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

The shower trim is the external part of the shower, which is visible and accessible to the user. A thing you need to know about taps is all the valves are enclosed in the trim which includes the handle for turning the valves on and off or changing the water temperature and pressure.  

How It All Works

shower-tap-understanding-shower-tap-components-shower-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

When you switch the shower on, turning the diverter handle will direct the water to the showerhead, hand shower, or through the rain shower set you purchased. The thermostatic and pressure-balance valves will regulate the water parameters and make sure that the water is at the pressure and temperature you want.

After understanding the shower tap components, you should not neglect the common issues with shower taps/faucets. 

 

Common Issues with Shower Taps/Faucets

Ignoring common issues with shower taps/faucets can result in something bigger and will leave you no choice but to invest in costly repairs. Learn and give due attention to it right away to avoid this mistake.

Regular Wear and Tear

wear-tear-common-issues-with-shower-taps-faucets-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Similar to limescale and general wear and tear, rust is a common faucet problem that develops over time. If you already notice signs of wear and tear together with developing rust, then all you can do is replace your tap with a new and better water tap.

Low Water Pressure

low-water-pressure-common-issues-with-shower-taps-faucets-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

If a weak stream of water comes out of your shower tap, then a buildup can be one of the reasons behind it. Dirt and minerals that accumulate on the aerator or spray diverter of your shower tap can restrict the flow of water, this can make the pressure go lower and lower.

No Water Coming Out Of Faucet

no-water-common-issues-with-shower-taps-faucets-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

If you turn on your shower faucet and no water comes out of the tap, this could be because of a blockage owing to build-up inside the tap. You can troubleshoot your tap by finding out if your shut-off water tap valve is open. If water still does not come out, then you will have to take your tap apart and clean its chambers.

Dripping Faucet

dripping-faucet-common-issues-with-shower-taps-faucets-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

A leaking or dripping shower tap is yet another usual problem. It is important to fix your leaking tap because not only does it waste water but also increases your water bills.

Installation Problems

installation-problems-common-issues-with-shower-taps-faucets-tap-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Improper installations have become a common issue since more and more people prefer doing it themselves. DIY tap installation or replacement is not recommended as tap installation requires experience and the right set of tools.

Excessive Faucet Noise

Your shower faucet may create screaming, whistling, or even chatter-like sounds. This signifies an issue that needs professional intervention from tap faucet services. A loose washer can be one of the reasons behind it.

Common issues with shower taps/faucets, especially a leak, should be addressed as there are causes and dangers to a leaking shower tap. 

 

Causes and Dangers of a Leaking Shower Tap

If you do not check your shower tap once in a while, then small problems such as a leak may have occurred and will go unnoticed. You must address it right away as there are causes and dangers of a leaking shower tap

Causes

Worn-Out Washers

This is one of the most common causes of leaky faucets. The washer cushions the force between the water pipes and prevents leakages.

Worn-Out O-Ring

The O-ring connects the different parts of your shower tap and seals the joints present between them. This ring can withstand high temperatures and prevent leakages. Although, if there is excessive pressure on this O-ring, then it can harm the structure and make your shower tap leak.

Poor Seal

Many shower taps come with inlet seals that allow water to flow freely when the tap is turned on, and to stop the faucet is turned off. If there is excess water pressure or sediment, the seals can experience damage and can be a reason why your tap is leaking.

Corroded Valve Seat

corroded-valve-seat-causes-and-dangers-of-a-leaking-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

The valve seat is present at the bottom of the tap’s mechanism. Its role is turning your faucet on and off. Due to repeated usage, this valve seat can corrode. When it corrodes, then water can be found dripping close to the handle area, causing a leaking tap

Dangers

High Water Bills

high-water-bills-causes-and-dangers-of-leaking-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

It is important to fix your leaking tap/faucet because if you do not, it can greatly increase your water bills. Though it may seem that the leaking shower tap is dripping just a few drops of water, the fact is that it leaks enough to make you experience an unexpected hike in your monthly water bills.

Mold and Rot

mold-and-rot-causes-and-dangers-of-a-leaking-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

What you need to know about taps is that even if the dripping noise caused by your leaking shower tap does not bother you, the way it can damage your property surely will. If you do not give attention to the constant dripping, then the water can develop mold on your ceilings, walls, and floor.

Overflows and Drain Clogs

If you spot a leaking shower tap/faucet and it keeps on occurring for a long time, then they can cause too much stress on your plumbing system. The stress that it causes can result in an overflow and drain clogs.

Water Stains

water-stains-causes-and-dangers-of-a-leaking-shower-tap-and-faucet-services-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Minerals accumulating because of the constant dripping are not easy to remove. It can end up in a situation to get the stains professionally removed. This process takes time and is also expensive which is why you should hire a plumbing professional to fix your leaking tap immediately to save time and money. 

Addressing the causes and dangers of a leaking shower tap, it is also best to be informed on how to know if you have a faulty shower tap. 

 

How to Know If You Have a Faulty Shower Tap?

It will be wiser to get problems fixed on time. To fix the problem early, you first need to be aware of how to know if you have a faulty shower tap.

Trouble Turning the Handle

trouble-turning-handle-how-to-know-if-you-have-a-faulty-shower-tap-replacement-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Are you finding it difficult to turn on the shower? If there is resistance when you are trying to turn your shower taps, then this can be because of a misaligned water tap valve. It can be a result of corrosion or damage as well.

Unexpected Temperature Changes

temperature-change-how-to-know-if-you-have-a-faulty-shower-tap-replacement-tap-faucet-city-singapore

If you observe a sudden temperature change, this can be because of the lime build-up inside your shower valve. This can also be due to the usual wear and tear – a common shower tap/faucet issue that happens over time.

Loss of Water Pressure

loss-water-pressure-how-to-know-if-you-have-a-faulty-shower-tap-replacement-tap-faucet-city-singapore

An overall loss of pressure or immediate changes in pressure can be a cause of wear and tear on your shower valve. A part of understanding shower tap components is that wear and tear on your valve’s internal components or even a clog can result in loss of water pressure.

Shower Diverter Not Working Properly

Sediment may even build up and your shower tap valve could malfunction. If your valve is not able to turn completely to block your tub tap, there will not be enough pressure to move the water up your pipe. Knowing that various parts of the valve assembly may have worn out, thus resulting in malfunction and other common faucet problems.

Shower Head & Tap Leaks

shower-head-tap-leaks-how-to-know-if-you-have-a-faulty-shower-tap-replacement-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Is your shower tap leaking? This can be because your shower valve does not have a proper seal that can fully shut off the shower. You should not ignore this problem and get it fixed by a professional immediately.

 

Conclusion

If you are planning to install a new shower tap, you must choose the right shower valve, check the water pressure, pick the configuration and type, etc. as a faucet buying guide. It is also vital to understand certain shower tap components such as the different valves and the trim. 

Regular wear and tear, installation problems, and low water pressure are common issues with shower taps/faucets that you must be aware of, as well as the causes and dangers of a leaking shower tap. This is to avoid having bigger problems like higher water bills, overflow, and drain clogs. 

Knowing when you have a faulty shower tap is important to fix problems on time. Unexpected temperature changes, trouble turning the handle, shower head, and tap leaks are problem indicators that you must address right away. It is best to engage a plumbing professional for these issues as they know how to repair a faucet properly and offer other services such as a tap installation and tap replacement
