Causes of dripping in shower:


1. Expansion with heat and contraction with cold: When water is heated, water dripping from rainfall shower head sometimes occurs, and this situation will decrease when the weather is cold and the water temperature is low, because the volume of water becomes larger and overflows when the temperature is high, so such dripping is a normal phenomenon and does not need to be treated.


2. Atmospheric pressure: Sometimes, when you turn off the high pressure shower head, you will find that there is a short dripping. In fact, this is caused by atmospheric pressure. When you turn off the shower nozzle, there is still a part of water in it, and due to atmospheric pressure, water cannot flow out. When the atmospheric pressure changes, or the vibration breaks the balance of atmospheric pressure, the remaining water of the sprinkler will flow out. The larger the hand held shower head, the more likely it is to appear this phenomenon.


3. Impurities and deposits: After the shower nozzle has been used for a long time, many impurities will be deposited in different parts, so it is necessary to disassemble the square shower head for cleaning.


4. Loose parts: if there is any looseness, check it carefully, and tighten the loose parts in time.
