    Shower dripping

    Shower dripping 20th Dec 07 at 9:38 PM
    I have what I think is a 'Sirrus TS1850 Stratus Shower', but I didn't install it so I have only been able to gather this from looking at pictures on the net.

    The shower will turn off, but needs to tightened as tight as possible or continually drips.

    I am doing a plumbing course, but I am only in my first few months. I can't see any obvious isolating valves to isolate the supply and it disappears immediately into the wall, with no obvious way of accessing the pipes.

    The Combi-boiler feeds it with hot water.

    Asking the tutor at college only gets - all showers are different, it depends on your shower and you need to read the instructions, which I don't have.

    Is it just a washer or are these cartridges? Could it be limescale due to hard water? Shall I just dismantle it as far as I can and clean the parts?

    Any help welcome as dripping is getting annoying!
