squealing shower

My shower squeals 2-4 minutes. How do I stop it?
Thank You

That is usually due to a loose washer in one of the shower valves. You will have to disassemble the valves to tighten the washer, but might as well replace them, and clean and lubricate the valve gear and stem. If unsure how to do this, there are good DIY books at big box stores and hardware stores. Or you can call a plumber.

Try this first

I had a shower that did the same thing some time ago. I removed the shower head and tested, problem solved. I replaced the head.
