Your Plumbing Experts in Nashville, Valdosta & the surrounding areas

A squeaking, whistling, or squealing shower is more than just aggravating. If ignored, the cause can lead to bigger, more expensive plumbing concerns. While there can be a number of reasons behind a noisy shower, most of them are easily resolved as a DIY project. For those issues that are more complex, get in touch with the professionals from Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning for service in Nashville, Valdosta & the surrounding areas. We always provide quick and effective solutions.
Here are the six most likely reasons for a squeaking shower:

  1. Clogged or broken showerhead – When small holes in the showerhead become clogged with sediment, it can result in a squealing sound. Removing and cleaning the showerhead should take care of it. If not, the fixture might need to be replaced.
  2. Clogged showerhead pipes – If cleaning the showerhead fails to eliminate that whistling sound, the problem could be the pipe. Remove the showerhead and use a household plumbing snake to remove mineral deposits from the connecting pipe.
  3. Broken shower cartridge – A damaged shower cartridge is a more difficult repair because of its location inside the faucet assembly. We recommend relying on professional plumbers from Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning to solve the issue.
  4. Worn-out diverter valve – The knob you pull or turn to switch from the tub faucet to the showerhead is the diverter valve and can become damaged due to wear and tear. When the water is running, try the diverter, and if the sound changes, it needs to be replaced.
  5. Too high water pressure – When water is being pushed through the pipes too quickly, a squeaking sound can result. You may need a new water pressure regulator near the water meter entrance if the pressure throughout the home has increased.
  6. Handle valves – The handles that adjust the amount of hot and cold water reaching the showerhead are connected to valves. When they wear out, a squealing sound can occur. Replacing them is best handled by licensed plumbers.
