Question about Hansgrohe Plumbing

'99 Hansgrohe Aktiva Family Set. All heads & controls are leaking

I would like to tighten up the control knobs and heads, but I'm not sure how to remove them. Do they unscrew or pop them off? Also, the temperature control knob is loose, but I'm not sure how to remove that either.
Thank you.

The temp control knobs have little plastic tabs over the hot and cold handles. To remove them take a flat blade screw driver( small with sharp head) or a small pen knife( cover drain with a wash cloth
and pop the tabs off

Take a medium size phillips screw driver and tighten the screw

Put tab back o and you are done

If they work loos again remov e tabs, screws put loctite ( You can get a small tube for m ace or hd) screw threads and tighten

Temp control knob either has same tab or has a hex type of set screw or has a large lock nut

use a channel lock pliars over nut ( protect chrome finish by putting washcloth over then put wrench over cloth

You mentioned heads I am assuming shower head you need to use an adjuatible wrench to turn the nut (at head) and a vice rip or chanel locks over washcloth around the eustaceon ( chrome pipe coming out of wall

If you have teflon tape put that on the threads of showr head and tighten

Best of luck to you!

Hansgrohe shower head leaking


If the shower head is constantly dripping and not shutting off it is most likely the valve in the wall not the head itself. How is the head leaking? Where/when does the water show up? Feel free to contact Hansgrohe Tech at 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech. We would be happy to help.

Hansgrohe shower head water leaking out of connector


Is it a Grohe or Hansgrohe shower head? If it is a Hansgrohe shower head the first thing to check is if the self sealing filter gasket is installed at the connection to the shower arm. Hansgrohe shower heads have a black self sealing filter gasket in the head that some people remove assuming it is a flow restriction device. It is only a filter and does not restrict flow unless clogged with debris. Next make sure the flow restriction device below the filter gasket is still installed. On some models removing the flow restrictor will cause water to be expressed from the air injection ports near the pivot ball. Feel free to contact me at Hansgrohe. 1-800-334-0455.

Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet


Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.
