Nowadays, shower pipes in homes are generally metal pipes with hose jackets. Therefore, the hose inside will be damaged due to some reasons and cause water leakage. Let's take a look at the common causes and solutions:
1. Improper installation, deformed rubber ring, stainless steel shower tube uneven or too thin outlet pipe joint, and mismatch between hose and shower.
Maintenance method: select the appropriate hose and shower according to the specifications, replace the rubber ring, and reinstall.
2. The hose is broken

Repair method: just replace with a new hose.
3. Improper adjustment and excessive foreign matter and scale.
Repair method: rotate the shower nozzle to adjust it. If it still doesn't work, open the small round cap in the middle of the shower nozzle with a small flat-blade screwdriver, unscrew the screw with a Torx screwdriver, turn on the shower, rinse with clean water, brush the shower hole with a toothbrush, and then install and restore.

Common materials for shower hoses include metal hoses, braided hoses, and PVC reinforced hoses. Different materials have their advantages and disadvantages, and there is no absolute good or bad. When buying in a hardware store, you can compare several materials. The key is to compare surface flatness, uniform clearance, smooth hand feeling, natural expansion, firm structure, and strong resistance to destruction. In addition, the size of the shower hose should be consistent with that of the shower. The general size is 14mm, 16mm, 17mm and 18mm in outer diameter. You can take the old hose and buy a new one for comparison.
