  • It is possible that the handle is not properly
    shut off. Make sure that it is turned as far as
    it should go in the off position. If this doesnt
    resolve the issue, move on to the next step.

7
  • Turn off the water supply valves before doing any
    kind of repair on your shower. If you are not
    sure where the fixtures valve is located, just
    turn the main line off.

8
  • When youre sure that no water will come out of
    the tap, remove the faucet handle by prying off
    the decorative cap with your knife. Detach the
    screw thats located right under the cap with
    your screwdriver.

  • If the faucet handles screw wont budge, you can
    warm it up with your hair dryer or you may also
    use a handle puller.

10
  • Detach the old cartridge thats going to be
    exposed once you remove the faucets handle. Use
    a cartridge puller to complete this task. Install
    a new cartridge.

  • Once done, remove the shower faucet with the use
    of your reliable wrench or a pair of pliers. Let
    the water drain out of the tap.

12
  • In some cases, a worn out rubber gasket is the
    culprit. Install a new gasket and guarantee that
    youll position it properly in place. It should
    not move while its inside the tap.

13
  • Get your wrench and re-attach the showers
    faucet. Secure it but never over tighten it.

14

    leak is gone. If the problem persists, call a
    professional.
