Shower drips!
 
Hi,

My husband and I just redid our bathroom. We ran pex lines from a manabloc system to the shower and tub (hot and cold lines).

The problem is this: everytime I turn the faucet on to have a bath, water starts dripping out of the showerhead (at a pretty decent speed) at the same time. It's not a full-bore shower spray, but it is still a significant flow. This gets water everywhere. The knob that you would normally pull up to start the shower is down, so that's not the problem. I can't figure out why this would be happening, and also how to fix it.

Any ideas?

Did you use copper pipe riser for the shower head?

Hi Ron,

No we didn't use copper, we used pex line

Did you use pex to the tub spout?

Hey, I ran into this once before, if it's Kohler, check page 3 of the install manual, do not use pex for the spout. I take it this is what you were getting at Ron?
