It has been a long day, and you cannot wait to jump in the shower. You are all ready to go, you turn the shower on, and you hear a loud, high-pitched whistle. Not only is this noise a disagreeable one to hear, but it can also mean that there is something wrong with your plumbing or shower head. It may be time to call the Park Slope plumbing experts at Aladdin Plumbing.
If your home is prone to having high water pressure, then you are more than likely going to hear a highpitched whistling noise. Luckily, this problem can be fixed easily with a pressure reducing valve. Install this part near its respective water meter.
Head to your main water valve and see if it is fully open. If the shutoff valve is even slightly closed, you better believe that you will hear a whistling sound coming from your shower. If the shutoff valve is stuck, or the whistle noise continues after being opened, contact your local plumber.
Your shower head is made up of many parts, and if any of those pieces become loose or broken, your ears will pay the price. Take off the shower head and take it apart to look for worn out washers or missing pieces. You should also make sure that the shower head is tightly fit, up against the wall.
Turning on the shower and hearing a whistling noise can be a telltale sign that a repair or corrective action needs to be taken. When you need Park Slope plumbing repair to service your plumbing, contact the experienced team at Aladdin Plumbing.
