The witching hour—you’re trying to get some much needed sleep but that drip, drip, dripping noise in the shower faucet is becoming too much of a challenge that you just want to shut the main water valve for the house entirely. The problem of your leaking bath faucet could be the shower valve, which for the non-handymen, is the device that controls the flow of water from the pipes to the shower head. The valve has many uses, for instance, a shower control valve ensures that there are no uncomfortable baths or sudden changes in temperature. Meanwhile, a shower diverter valve creates an instant outlet so that water will directly flow through the shower head or hand held hose. Fixing a leaking shower can be as simple as making sure that the faucet is turned off completely, or it can be as complex as removing the old shower valve and replacing it with a new one. Valves and other plumbing tools are available on eBay in new conditions to help you achieve a good night’s sleep without the nightmare of dripping showers.
