Question about Grohe Shower Hardware

1 Answer

The hose has come off the locking piece that connects to the show

I reattached the thread after cutting off a short piece of hose. It screws into the hose, but I'm not sure it's going to hold. Do I use a plumbing cement? (I used putty) Do I need a new hose set? I'm not sure of the exact Grohe shower system, but it's about three years old.

Hi in the 1st instance if you cut off some of the hose it will never hold on, so to save further probs i would get a new hose, go to the grohe website & you should be able to view ones that better match your existing one. otherwise you will just get frustrated everytime it comes loose or falls off!

kindly

Richie

I recently installed an Oxygenics PowerSelect hand held showerhead and the water does not come out of the showerhead. The water comes out of the top of the hose instead. I don't know what to do now.


The hose connects to the shower head by a screw on ring. This has a rubber seal inside. unscrew the ring and check that the seal has a ring indentation mark on it where it has been compressed (to form a seal) and the ring mark goes all round, showing a full seal. Make the rubber seal thicker by making a cardboard ring the same size as the seal rubber ring from a cereal box or simila,r and put this on top of the rubber one and reconnect the screw on connection. The extra thick seal may stop the screw on joint leaking.

Bad shower head


The hose wall has weakened. If it's just a compression fitting in the base of the showerhead, you should be able to simply cut off the bad spot (and maybe a little extra to be safe) and reattach it, but odds are you need to get a new one. Sooner or later the hose wall will crack open and you'll have a mess on your hands.

How can I tighten the handle on the temperature control and the water pressure handle? Both are loose?


On the Deltas there is a small set screw opposite of the handle or under the handle cap. To remove the cap if your have to use a sharp blade so as to not scratch the handle. DON'T CUT YOURSELF!
The set screw is normally a allen type. If you feel good about doing something extra you can put some (vary little amount) of thread lock on the set screw ( you will need to completely remove the set screw to do this.

Can the hand-held shower hose be replace without accessing the plumbing underneath the tub? I can't figure out how to disconnect the existing hose from the diverter without cutting an opening under the...


No, you need to cut a hole. Usually an access panel is provided during the initial installation, either in the ceiling from downstairs or in the other side of the adjacent wall. But it's pretty easy to add one. After you cut a nice rectangular hole, you can cover it with a piece of painted plywood that has a trim piece attached to the plywood. The plywood is held in place with a couple of screws. When you remove the panel, the trim stays attached to the plywood. When you place the panel in the hole, the trim covers the gap between the drywall and the plywood.

The push knob on the bathtub faucet doesn't function properly, i.e. when pushed down for shower function it still runs water through the faucet and it's difficult to push down


Replace the faucet It may be attached with a set-screw underneath the faucet or simply screwed onto a short length of (1/2") threaded pipe stubbed out of the wall. If the set-screw is not present, cut through any caulking at the base of the faucet, insert a screw driver or similar into the spigot and use it to turn the spigot anti-clockwise. It should just 'thread' off. If there is a set-screw, undo it (from underneath) with a screw driver and pull the faucet off the pipe. Make sure before installing a new faucet you get one which connects either onto a threaded or unthreaded pipe depending upon which comes out of the wall.

Kohler shower hose leak


If the problem is solely because of the rubber washer with screen you can buy any cheap replica hose and use the washer that comes with it. If the issue goes away you are done. If not, switch heads and see if the issue follows the head. If it does then there would be a crack in the head at the connection. If neither solves the issue then you must buy a new hose.

I have a WaterPik shower head that keeps coming


If your unit has a threaded connection for the handle and hose the threads are most likely stripped. You can get thread grip material at most hardware stores and repair it yourself. Otherwise replacement is necessary.

Two handle Moen kitchen faucet. Hot side handle


loctite is an excellent product,but you have to have a couple of threads for it to 'lock'! be sure handle is seated[pushed all the way on] or shop a hardware or home improvement store for a replacement screw or a 'self tapping'' screw of the proper size.
