SHOWER REPAIR

A shower repair is so common for Rescue Plumbing plumbers, that we have lost count on how many we’ve completed.

The most common bathroom shower repair we get called out for is no hot water in the shower.

Usually, this means the shower cartridge or thermostatic cartridge, which is a component of the shower, has broken and needs repair.
