The weight of the arm and rain head is too heavy for fixing

It seems like the weight of the arm and rain shower plate will be far to heavy for the backplate elbow I've installed behind the tiles. how am I going to fit these now?

    Instruction call for caution when installing a grohe rain shower head in a shower with sheet rock (blue board) wall.The weight of the head is about six pounds. Is there any easy method for reinforcement without tearing down walls or installing and getting leaks because of the weight.

There should bea rubber gasket/washer that goes between threads on shower arm and inside of shower head. If this is a new shower head I would return it to place of purchace for exchange. If not you should be able to get the waher seperatly. If not you can get a cheap shower head and use the gasket from it. I also would recommend that you use several wraps of teflon pipe joint tape on shower arm and tighten snugly.I hop this helps you. Thank you a have a good year

The shower arm should be screwed into an elbow inside the wall. Unscrew the shower arm by putting your pipe wrench on the arm and unscrewing in a counter clockwise direction ( lefty loosey, righty tighty ) . Measure the length of the arm going inside the wall and make sure your replacement has enough length to reach. Teflon tape the inside end ( the end going in the wall ) and wrap a rag around the new arm, then screw into the elbow going clock wise , stopping when it starts getting tight and with the bend facing downward. Install shower head.

I have a Moen shower faucet that is six years old(copper sweated plumbing). My wife noticed water dripping profusely from the downstairs ceiling during my shower. The screws holding the face plate were...


Try removing the handle, then the face plate. With a flashlight handy, check inside the wall around the valve to see if you see any leaks. Then, try the valve by pulling the stem (may need a plier to grab this). Keep checking inside the wall. Next, try the shower, and again watch in the hole you have. You may find that the connection(s) to the valve is/are leaking, particularly at the top of the valve where the shower pipe heads up the wall. Or, it may be that the shower head's arm is leaking somewhere above. If you only see water dripping down from above, try the flashlight with a small make-up mirror to see if you can see where it's coming from. Sometimes the pressure in the shower head builds up from the flow restrictor, or the head's spray holes may need cleaning out (try soaking the head in a solution of CLR [stands for Calcium, Lime, Rust] available at most home improvement/ hardware stores). Sometimes the shower arm (the bent 1/2" diameter pipe that the shower head mounts to) isn't fastened in tightly enough. A good trick to help here is to wrap the threads with teflon tape, then apply teflon paste also. Wrap the tape clockwise around the threads so that it doesn't unwrap when you screw the pipe back into the fitting in the wall. Also, make sure the threads in the fitting in the wall are cleaned out, and don't let any debris contaminate the new teflon paste as you slip it back through the hole in the wall. If you find that the pipe out of the top of the valve is leaking, I recommend you call the plumber. He/she can likely fix it without taking the wall apart.

Arm and needle skate across the record and no sound comes out. looked at another question regarding this same problem and the response was a possible problem with the stylus or the weight setting. but how...


The stylus should either just clip out or slide out depending on the type of cartridge fitted. On the weight thing look at the other end of the arm. It should have either somekind of screw or a weight with numbers on it. Slacken the weight and move it so the head where the cartridge is gets heavy. If it has numbers turn it to around 2 or 3 or higher and test/adjust using a record till it plays and doesn't make too much rumble sound when playing (in the gaps with no music) with both types of weight.

Could i get a clear drawn instruction for putting the together the delta monitor 1800 series showerhead?The showerhead doesnt seem to fit on to the pivoting ball. Thankyou


My first instinct from your description is that the arm that comes out the wall to put shower head on has a rounded ball as a part of it with no threads on it. If so, it needs to be replaced with a standard shower arm with threads on both ends to acccomodate your new head.

just replace your shower arm that is what the shower head is connected to make sure you use teflon tape around the threads on each end of the shower arm that should do the trick

My Hans Grohe rain shower head is having a lighter spray recently. Is there a way to improve the spray force and/or clean it? Thanks, Therese Terschuren


Rain head showers are a nice thought, but they come with a bundle of problems. This is common one, though, so fear not.

As long as your regular shower head isn't losing pressure (I'm assuming that you have at least two heads instead of just one rain head) I would recommend carefully removing the head with an adjustable wrench and letting it soak in CLR (calcium lime rust) for at least an hour. Often times minerals in water will build up in the small holes on a shower head and greatly reduce efficiency.

Remember to apply teflon tape to the threads before carefully retightening the shower head to avoid spraying water from the wrong end!

Shower arm is loose


The best way is to cut a hole in the wall and fix it right. That will entail replacing the surface material, probably sheetrock. You could try some silicone sealant around the shower arm behind the eschusion. It will still move, but not much.

I'm trying to replace my shower head and am unable to remove the old one from the shower arm diverter, any help would be appreciated


use a crescent wrench on the shower head. If the head alone won't budge, the entire head plus arm will unscrew. Then just pick up a new arm and some teflon tape and reattach both. good luck
