 Issue with new shower and bath tap with converter
Author: simon14 (Non-US)

Hi all,

Just wondering if this is normal?

We just had our bathroom renovated and a new shower with a bath tap and converter was installed.

If i turn the bath tap on and off again, it doesn't drip afterwards but if i turn the shower on, then turn the shower off, the bath tap will drop for about 30 mins afterwards. I put a cup under the bath tap and it fulls up about half a cup over the 30 odd mintues, then stops dripping.

Is this normal?

Yes, that's normal. The larger the shower head, the longer the water will drip. The water is being held in the piping and head by vacuum.
