How can i turn off my shower.The problem is the stopper is very hard to push in to the wall,as well as trying to pull it out. When i turn the taps on for the tub the shower also comes on,an i can’t shut it off.The tub has a marble wall surrounding it and i can’t access it easily,any suggestion would be appreciated.Thank You.
It sounds like your fixtures in the shower stall/bathtub are somewhat frozen due to expansionary tension that occurs over time. This causes valve to not properly work. You have a couple of choices. If the off/on fixtures are still operational it possible you can return your shower to proper working order through some good ole fashion coaxing with WD-40. You should remove the handle fixtures and inspect to see what the condition is. If it salvageable, then work in some lubricant and then evaluate how everything operations with the shower water supply on and off.
Another option is to just replace all of the fixtures in question. If this is beyond your level of expertise, then you can contract a qualified plumber to perform the service. It is possible that through continuous use, the shower hot/cold water fixtures are just not operating properly and a re-fit with something comparable is just what the plumbing doctor ordered.
