- My showerhead leaks. Do I just need to replace it, or can I fix it somehow?

Many times, a simple fix is all that is needed to save your leaking showerhead. A leaking showerhead can not only be annoying, it can waste many hundreds of gallons of water a year, and cost you hundreds of wasted dollars. Here are some helpful tips to help salvage your leaking showerhead.  

  • If your showerhead leaks where it meets the arm, you might just need to replace the washer. To do this, loosen the collar using rib-joint pliers wrapped in tape (to protect the surface from scratches). Erratic or weak water pressure usually indicates mineral build-up. To restore proper flow, clean outlet holes with a pin or unscrew the perforated faceplate and soak it in vinegar overnight, then scrub it clean before replacing it.

  • If the showerhead pivots stiffly, check the washer for wear and coat the swivel ball with petroleum jelly before reassembling.
 

- What is Mid-City's policy for returned merchandise?

We try to maintain a liberal policy in accepting the return of unused merchandise. A restocking charge to help cover the cost of handling will be assessed on stock items.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept merchandise not in a resalable condition.
