Why Does My Shower Whistle


It’s been a long and tiring day and all you want to do is take a nice, hot shower and relax. So you go into your bathroom, turn on the shower, and you hear ­­a loud high­pitched whistle! Not only is this noise an unpleasant one to hear, but it can also mean that there is something wrong with your plumbing or shower head.

Problem #1 ­- Water Pressure

If your home is prone to having high water pressure, then you’re 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.

Problem #2 ­- Valve Opening

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’ll 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.

Problem #3 ­- Malfunctioning Parts

Your showerhead 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 is a telltale sign that a repair or corrective action needs to be taken. When you need a plumber to service your plumbing, contact the experts at SameDay Heating & Air. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment, give us a call at (801) 726-3329.

Thank you for the wonderful service your company provides. I am new to the area and got your number from the Yellow Pages. All of the ads looked alike. I called two other companies before I called Air Comfort. The first company did not show up.…
