Re: Long, hard drip from Hand held shower
Think of a soda straw, you put it in a drink and cover the end with you finger. You can then lift the straw out of the drink and the liquid inside the straw remains. You have the same situation with the handheld shower's hose. It holds water because the valve is shut like having you finger over the end of the straw. As air leaks in or is released by the water it breaks a little of the vacuum and water drips out.
