    Default Shower running during night

    Greetings,

    I know this may sound very strange.
    Every few nights in the middle of the night, water flows from the shower for about 15 seconds, it may adverage about a quart. without anyone recently using it.
    Any solutions or reasons why this is happening

    Regard
    Robert

    You know , since you brought it up , one of my showers does the same thing . Not as often and only about a cup of water or so . Spooky though .

    At least the ghost are clean .
    sometimes the pipe takes a while to burp -after you close the water valve the water is t****d until some air works it way down the pipe an then the water falls out like a soda straw and a fnger on the end.Except the ghost is using it finger for long enough to scare the !@#$%^ out of you.

    happy new year to everyone GO PATS

    We had a similar thing in a shower stall right after it was installed a few years ago. Initially we thought we had clean ghosts! After a couple weeks of this, I took the valve stem out (single handle Moen IIRC) and there was a thread in the guts of the stem. I guess that allowed just enough of a drip through the valve that after a while it built up to the point of about a 5 second flow from the shower head. Maybe you have a similar issue with some debris in the valve?
