Expert Shower Repairs

Whether your shower is in a cubical, part of a wet room or a unit over the bath, you’ll know just how important these fixtures are for daily washing routines. Sometimes, shower problems crop up and property owners then face a range of issues. The bottom line is that your shower may not work as it should, causing frustration, disruption and extra effort in your daily life. Our local plumbers can diagnose and fix a very extensive range of issues as part of our shower repairs. We’re here for you when you need to get your shower fixed quickly.

What are the common types of shower repairs?

Showers are installations that involve a combination of hot and cold water delivery. Also, they often involve electrics and gas at the root of the water supply. Therefore, if things go wrong, you need a competent professional to tackle these issues. The type of shower repairs we most frequently deal with include:

  • Blocked shower drains
  • Leaking or dripping showers
  • hot water problems and water pressure issues
  • Temperature problems

Because we deal with everything to do with plumbing, heating and drainage, we can diagnose and fix the root problems that lie behind faulty showers. We carry a large selection of shower spares on our vans, meaning we’re the ideal firm to repair your shower on the same day we visit. If we don’t have the spare part to hand, we can easily order it quickly, thanks to a network of local suppliers that offer an efficient supply of shower spares.

Why it’s important to repair a faulty shower

Most shower problems begin at a minor level. They can be more of an inconvenience than a disaster. However, if you ignore these issues, they can become more serious. That’s why you should call on us. We’re professionals and can carry out preventative maintenance or fix minor niggles. Also, we’re ready to act quickly in the event of an emergency like a burst pipe or a flood and we can minimise the damage.

Here are just some of the showers we fix:

  • Thermostatic
  • Mixer
  • Electric
  • Power showers

Thermostatic showers

These showers are popular as you can set and maintain a constant water temperature. Typical problems that we can repair include leaks and fluctuating water temperatures. Thermostatic showers have mechanical and electrical parts that need attention, such as valves and thermostats to control the temperature. Our skilled technicians will begin by diagnosing the problem before going on to repair the fault in the most effective and efficient manner.


Mixer showers

We carry out mixer shower repairs on a regular basis and know these shower types inside out. Mixer showers combine hot and cold water after the temperature has been manually adjusted. One of the frequent problems we see is limescale build-up. The problems caused by limescale include dripping or leaking showerheads and/or shower bodies. Taps and controls can also be hard to turn on and off. The good news is that our team of No1PHD skilled professionals can solve these issues, returning your mixer shower to normal and effective operation.

Electric showers

Electric showers heat the water by means of a built-in water heater. The build-up of limescale is a common problem with electric showers. Also, we frequently deal with electrical faults and leaks. We’re very experienced when it comes to electric shower repair, including replacing failed components on many brands.

Power showers

Power showers may look like their electric counterparts but they run with a pump instead of a heater. The pump delivers higher water pressure and these showers are a good option if you have inconsistent pressure. Most of the faults No1PHD repairs are related to pumps and down to mechanical failure or trapped air. Fortunately, we can repair all types of power showers, installing new parts if necessary.

In summary, if you need shower repairs, no matter what type of shower you have, give us a call on 08006906777 or email us at, for a quick reply. As certified plumbers and electricians, we’ll visit you for a no-obligation quote. When you’re ready we will get down to repairing the problem to get your shower up and running again quickly.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
