    Yep. I wouldn't advise staining if the fence isn't power washed. It would be a waste of money.

    Is there a plumber in the house?

    Iím fairly handy at a lot of things but aside from minor things like replacing toilets et cetera, Iíve not messed with plumbing much ever. My master bedroom - the tub faucet and shower head both have a steady drip. Tub more steady.

    I would assume thereís a gasket or something that might need to replaced if it was just one of them. But donít know how likely both have bad gaskets. Am I on the wrong path or should I check something else first?

    What brand faucet do you have? Usually it is just a gasket but some use cartridges, which are pretty easy to install. Once you know what you have you can find a local Ferguson to get you the right products.

    If the cartridge in your shower fixture has gone out, it's sometimes less aggravating to just change out the fixture.

    Sounds to me like a valve issue since both the faucet and showerhead are leaking.

    Finally got around to fixing this yesterday. It was an o-ring on the shower head and the cartridge. The cartridge was a pain in the ass because i couldn’t get it out. Broke in half, actually. I was a wary of how much force I used pulling on it because I didn’t want to damage and soldered joints in the piping. Didn’t want to turn a small problem into a big one with having to cut into walls, etc. Eventually it came out.

    On to the next project, and loving it.

    I'm sure there's a tool or method to removing those cartridges easily, but anytime I've had to deal with them there's lots of sweating, cussing, and near crying...so congrats on the successful plumbing venture.
