No Hot Water in Shower

No Hot Water

Not having hot water in your shower can be quite irritating… especially if you are about to shower after a long day. No hot water in your shower is often a result of a valve cartridge or stem that has been clogged or damaged.

What is a shower cartridge or stem?

The shower cartridge or stem is the inner component of your shower faucet. The shower cartridge or stem turns the water to your shower faucet on and off and also regulates temperature. 

What damages a shower cartridge or stem?


Many people do not know this but the water system in the Chicagoland area can carry sediments, minerals, and sometimes small debris through the water lines. 

These sediments, minerals, and small debris can make it all the way to your shower faucet and get lodged in the shower cartridge or stem. This can damage your shower’s cartridges and stems. 

Shower cartridges and stems wear out over time

Cartridges and stems wear out over time. Your shower faucet is made in a way that allows us to replace the cartridge or stem because it is considered a wearable item. 

Replacement of the shower cartridge or stem will usually solve the no hot water in the shower issue.
