Shower Repair and Replacement Services in Calgary

For Calgary, AB, homeowners, the shower can be a refuge from the cold or the perfect relaxing end to another busy day.

Either way, when something goes wrong and you can’t enjoy that five or ten minutes to yourself under a hot shower, the day just doesn’t feel right.

Maybe it’s just a worsening leak from your shower that needs fixing before it causes water damage to your bathroom or the room below.

For problems with your shower unit, you may need a professional plumber who specializes in shower repair services, but there are also some troubleshooting steps that you can take before calling our team at Alpha Plumbing.

Some simple leaks are relatively easily fixed but most demand the right tools and know-how. Once we know the details, we’ll send somebody out to your home to give an honest assessment of the shower repairs you need and provide a clear estimate of costs.

Do You Need a Shower Valve Replacement?

One of the most common problems with showers in Calgary homes is with the shower valve/handle, which needs fixing or replacing.

Shower valves and handles are an integral part of how your shower works to deliver water at the right temperature. They use internal cartridges or stems plus O-rings (washers) to control the flow of hot and cold water and to provide water at the desired temperature.

Often, simply replacing the shower valve fixes the problem. Some showers have two handles rather than one, which may mean both valves need replacement.

For more serious problems., the entire assembly must be replaced and this creates extra expenses. Some bathroom remodeling may be needed. If there is no access panel exposing the assembly and plumbing, it may need invasive repairs behind the assembly rather than from the shower, increasing complications and repair costs.

How Do You Know If You Need to Replace the Shower Valve?

Signs of a worn-out valve include:

  • Dripping/leaking even with the handle closed tight
  • The water temperature is difficult to balance
  • Shower pressure fluctuates, especially when water is being used elsewhere in the home

Floor Leaks

A leaking shower can cause a lot of damage to a home and much of the damage goes unseen until it is already expensive to repair.

Because of the frequency with which the shower water is turned on in most Calgary homes, even small shower leaks and drips can impact the room below the bathroom quite quickly.

Early fixes are usually much cheaper and quicker than if you leave the problem to develop. The more extensive the repairs, the longer the shower will be out of action too, adding to the inconvenience.

Our plumbers can help you repair plumbing leaks, so they do not lead to major repairs or water damage.

Shower Drain Leaks

If your shower is leaking, it is typically due to the following reasons:

  • The door is not well fitted: if doors are too short or do not close all the way, water will pool on the bathroom floor
  • Doors are cracked: sometimes water seeps through cracks in the shower door
  • Door tracks not draining: the door tracks should be waterproof canals with tiny outlets along them to allow water to drain back inside the shower. If these holes become clogged or hard water builds up, they may need professional attention.
  • Door tracks not sealed: where the tracks join the shower door frames at the walls, they need adequate sealing with bathroom caulking.
