Poor water supply pressure can also be the cause of this problem. In this case, you will notice the same problem in other fixtures as well. Also, same problems will be noticed by people residing in rest of the apartments/houses in your area. This can sometimes cause low water pressure in one outlet when other taps are turned on and proper pressure when only one outlet is on. This is because distribution of water further lowers the pressure. In this case, plumber will measure the incoming pressure and flow before your regulator, so as to make sure if that is the problem. Sometimes, elevation can also be the problem. The water storage tank which is supplying water to the sink must be at higher level so that the water flows by gravity. Most of the time, water pressure could get affected due to a damaged pipeline. Major plumbing problems, like blockage or leakage of pipeline, can be the cause of reduced pressure. If this is the case, the repairs can be expensive.
From time to time, pour some salt water solution down the drain. This will help to control the grease buildup and stop the odors as well.
Before jumping to the repairing tutorial, let us understand what all basic parts a shower faucet is composed of. There are around 6 parts which you will need to take out for faucet repair. The top part called the cap is a disc and then there is a small handle screw. These two parts are inside the handle of the faucet. Under this is the stem which has threads attached to it. The stem is a long cylindrical shaped body, which attaches to the upper faucet and bottom faucet parts together. Then there is a small hollow disc attached to the stem, which is just like a nut, except it is smooth and circular in shape. Then finally at the bottom end is the washer screw. Now that you understand the basic structure of the shower faucet, it is time to take out these parts.
