Shower Head Leaking when Flushing Toliet


I can't seemed to find any information on how to do a DIY repair on this.

Whenever I flush the toilet the shower head (shower only no tub) drips from water head.

Any ideas on how to repair this? Thanks in advance?

Likly caused from a change in water pressure.
Cartrage likly needs to be replaced in the control valve.
If you know the brand most company's will send you a new one for free if you contact them direct.
No one's going to be able to tell you how to change it without at least a picture, brand and model # would be even better.

Post a picture, some of the plumbers may know what it is.
Not a big deal if you do not know what brand it is, just shut off the main hot and cold water supply's remove it and take it with you to the plumbing supply store to match it up..
