    Hello,

    I'm new to this BB. Last night I was 5 mins into my shower and suddenly no water came out. This is a stand up shower. The knob was still out, which should mean water comes out. Not even a drip. All the other water taps and showers work. I have no clue on what problem it is. I need help.

    Thanks

    Most likely you have a pressure balancing shower and the balancing portion may have gone bad or is stuck. What brand of shower is it.

    spool

    A stuck spool will just shut off one side of the water supply. The other side, hot or cold, will still have pressure, so your problem is most likely in the shower head.
