Video transcription

I'm Terry, Towers Murray Plumbing, here to show you how to repair a leaking shower faucet. First thing to do, remove your shower handle, then your face plate. Now, remember each faucet is a little bit different, different style handles. For the most part, they will come off with a screw or a set screw. Now, depending on where your leak is coming from on a shower valve. Typically it'll be dripping out of a shower head, or from behind the handle. Either way, you need to do the repair from the valve itself, which is this par there. Remove the face plate and then, the escutcheon or sleeve. This one has a locking clip that locks a cartridge in place. And requires a small tool, which can be purchased or rented from your local plumbing house. Take your tool, loosen the cartridge, cartridge pulls out. And this time, you can take it down, match it up. So that you can finish repairing your faucet. Now, when repairing a bathroom faucet, or shower faucet. Things you need to keep in mind, if it's leaking behind the wall, or if the valve body is shot. You may need to need to call in a professional, to help you change the valve body behind the wall. Again, I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing. We've just shown you how to repair a leaky shower faucet.
