Help! Unable to stop leaking shower tap!!


Hope you can help.

My shower tap has been increasingly leaking. I'm not sure if the bolt (where the leak is coming from) can be tightened and i dont want to accidently bend the pipe going into it in an attempt to tighten it.

Can anyone advise why there is now a constant (almost stream of) dripping and whether i need to call a plumber or if its something I can fix myself?

Gently tighten the nut with a wrench. You won't hurt anything unless you really force it.
