Hi, I want to get an old shower screen replaced and am wondering if I could remove the old shower screen myself without specialized tools. The old screen is aluminium and glass with a sliding door and sits on a tile base. Thanks for your help. Peter

Sounds like it might be a air bubble in the waer pipes, try removing the shower head and run the hot and cold water together for a minute, then remember to FIRST TURN OFF THE HOT WATER then turn off the cold water and replace the shower head and test as normal.
You will have to replace the shower diverter button. Remove the handle, remove the faceplate, and the diverter will screw out. Any plumbing supply that carries Moen products will have a replacement button for your valve
Hi...you could let the whole pipe come out and replace that too with your new shower head. Just be sure to put some "tape dope" or some plumbers "joint compound" on all threaded connections before install to ensure no leaks especially inside the shower wall.
2 things can be happing here depending on the age of the tub spout. If the spout is more than 5 years old, you may need to replace it. if not that old then you may have a screen filter blockage in the shower head itself. remove the shower head from the shower neck and see if there is anything in the filter. while you have the head removed, try the tub spout again and see if problem continues. this should guide you in the next step to either replace the tub spout or just clean the shower head screen filter. Hope this helps.
i dont know the exact size just get the little set that has a bunch connected when you take handle off make sure water is shut down to pipes then take the inner part out of the center there should be two black screens in the ports where water comes in clean those and should be good to shower
Yes this one for the pro's call the company this is not something a most repair plumbers like to do...we would call the company they should know whats going on. If I was on the job thats what I would have to do, and then I would have them ship the parts to me. How old is it?
hi ya, if its a triton shower valve & only 2 years old it should have a 5 year guarantee, ring Triton & arrange a service call.
it sounds as though the filters could be blocked & more than likely the thermostat requires replacing as its more than likely scaled up?
You never mentioned where your based UK or abroad?
Once you've purchased your new shower head the first step in replacing the head is to make sure your shower faucets are firmly turned off and then remove the old shower head. If you look at the existing shower head, you'll notice flat spots on what's called a pipe nipple at the base of the shower head where the head screws into the goose-neck pipe that sticks out of the wall. * Take an adjustable wrench and tighten the wrench onto the base of the shower head flat spots. * Turning counter-clockwise, loosen and remove the old shower head. * Clean the threads on the goose-neck of any debris such as old pipe compound or Teflon tape.
