Single-handle shower faucets are becoming more common in homes due to their simplicity and durability. A loose shower handle will usually occur well before the shower actually becomes worn enough internally to drip, so repairing it sooner rather than later is always a good strategy. The two most common shower faucet types use either an internal ball mechanism to mix and direct the water, or an internal cartridge to mix and direct the water.
