My shower thermostat cartridge is old and it leaks, so my shower head continually drips.
I am planning to rebuild my whole bathroom in the next couple of months, but until then, how can I stop the annoying drips 24 hours a day?
The shower has a single control, to turn from off, through cold, to hot. And the head is in a fixed position, facing downwards.
I have tried:
- placing a towel in the base of the shower
- running another tap elsewhere in the house to reduce pressure
- slamming the control from cold to hot and vice versa
- reducing the hot water temperature and pressure at the boiler
None changed the flow of water.
