Shower is leaking. Please help.
The coarse threads inside where the stem screws out and in to allow or stop the water flow could have worn out and become stripped.
Most replacement faucet stem assemblies have both the stem (with male threads) and a cap or insert (with female threads) since either or both sets of threads in the original parts could get stripped. Another set of (finer) threads holds the cap or insert on the rest of the faucet and these threads very seldom get stripped although they can sometimes be hard to dismantle.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
