My shower is making a horrible squealing noise when I pull up the diverter knob to send the water out of the showerhead. It lasts anywhere froma few seconds to a couple or so mintues. It started awhile back, meaning a couple of years :). First, it would only be when the shower was not used for several days when I was out of town. After using it a few times it would finally stop. Then it would be fine until I went out of town for several days again. Recently It's started doing it some if I only skip one day of using it. (I've been taking some of my showers at the fitness ceter after water aerobics; I'm not just stinky LOL!)
I did a search on Google, and it said I might have some trash in the showerhead. I'm going to take it off and see about that. If that doesn't fix it, anyone have any other suggestions? I will be calling a plumber because I don't know squat about it, but I'd like to have some kind of idea beforehand. I don't want him to tell me I need a new flugelhosen and charge me $500 - LOL!
