    I think this depends on the way your plumbing is set up. I know that for our baseboard heaters, there's a bleeder valve that you can turn to release air, but I'm not sure about other pipes. You might want to consult with a plumber about this.

    1

    Place a bucket or tub beneath each tap or faucet in the home as well as in each bathtub or shower. Ensure to do this at every water outlet possible as this will help you collect and use the water rather than let it go down the drain in subsequent steps.


    2

    Attach hoses to the outside spigots and run the other end of each hose to plants that need watering.


    3

    Turn on each faucet inside and outside the home. Flush every toilet and run each bath or shower faucet. Follow a systematic approach to ensure you catch every faucet. For example, start with the uppermost floor in the home and work your way downward.


    4

    Place a cup under the cold water tap on the refrigerator and run water into the cup.


    5

    Turn off each faucet inside and outside the home in the opposite direction in which you turned them all on. Start closing them as soon as the sputtering of air in the system stops.


    6

    Empty the containers you used to catch water at the sinks and tubs. Use the water for flowers, laundry or for rinsing the car after washing it.

    had a bathrm remodel due to water damage and plumber redoing pipes said it was caused from dirt/rust(just a little) in pipes blocking/messing with the valve. He took the faucets back off cleaned it out & it quit.

    Sounds to me like the stopper is not sealing properly to divert the water to the shower head. If the stopper is on the faucet spout I would replace it with a new one. They do wear out over time from use.
