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.

SOURCE: How to turn on shower head of Delta monitor

I'm at my cousin's place and he has a delta monitor. Similar to what you guys are talking about.

To turn on the shower, I had to pull down on the faucet head, not the shower head.

To turn off the shower, I had to push the faucet head back up.

Hope this helps anybody out.

My husband in stalled in shower vavle body. When bathtub is filling, water comes out shower head any ideas.


It's possible you installed the valve upside down, all values should be labeled in some way marking either hot and cold or it will say the word up where the riser tube port for the shower head is. If that's not the case remove the tub spout and check for any obstruction sometimes during tile or constructing debris can get into the pipe for your tub spout. Lastly the diverter on the tub spout could be bad. Try a new tub spout

How do install delta shower


If you are looking to replace only the shower head, you'll need two plumber's wrenches, a cloth, and Teflon tape.

First and foremost, read the install instructions that come with the new shower head...

After you clearly understand what the instruction's say, shut of the water supply lines for the hot & cold water.

Take one of the wrenches and apply it to the neck of the water supply tube coming out of the shower wall (a.k.a. goose neck or supply nipple, or arm, depending upon the design). It'll have male threads (the threads are on the outside of the fitting). I would place a cloth of some sort around it before placing the wrench on it so you don't mar the finish of the water supply tube.

Place the second wrench on the shower head assembly (which has the internal, female threads). and unscrew it by turning the shower head assembly counter-clock-wise (to the left) while holding the water supply nipple with the other wrench.

You need to do this, so you don't snap or deform the water supply nipple coming out of the shower wall- and/or possibly causing leaky damage to the fittings behind the shower wall.

To replace the shower head, you reverse the removal process- the only difference is, you wrap Teflon tape around the male threads of the water supply nipple before spinning on the new shower head.

Somethings to be careful of, and I can't stress this enough, DO NOT cross thread the new shower head onto the water supply nipple. You should be able to screw it on the new shower head by hand- where it is hand tightened- then using the double-wrench method that you used to take off the shower head, turn the new shower head an additional half to three quarter turns with the wrench, clock-wise; and I mean gently.

Here's a nice short video on the subject, illustrating my instructions: http://youtu.be/fiv4Zq9v4co

Little water comes out my shower head when I take a shower, should I call a plumber, or is this something that I can fix myself?


remove the shower head. and if the water flows normal, its a clogged up shower head. if takeing a shower and the diverter valve goes bad. water will come out of the spout. check out shower head to see if its clogged. sometimes you can soak the head in a good cleaner and it helps it. but if its the showerhead thats plugged. you can always put a new one on also. good-day !

I have replaced the guts to my delta shower two years ago. It now is holding a lot of water in the spout before it hits the shower head. Is there a problem with the shower head or do the insides need to be...


Lets start by removing the shower head from the chrome pipe on the wall and check the screen filter to make sure you are getting full flow. if this dose not cure problem then lets look at the diverter valve.is it a push button on the wall plate or a pull down spout diverter? if it's the push button it may have a bad paddle and needs to be replaced. If it's on the spout i am leaning towards the shower head. hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information.

My mira sport shower is only 2 years old just over and is leaking from the shower head I have taken the head off, is it the washer or do I need a new shower head? Sorry I am unable to give you the brand....


firstly clean all the shower holes with a needle tip. you can also apply some descaler on the shower. Cut an old cycle tube piece round to the size of shower head. Make a hole in the centre of the cutted piece.Apply some grease on the patch & place it between the shower & head. Tight it up.If there is not enough space for rubber just apply grease on the head & tight it.

Our Aqualisa power shower lacks water pressure power


more than likely you have some debris near the shower head

take an adjustible wrench( crescent or channel lock
wrap a rag around the eustaceon( chrome tube coming out of shower wall srap around tube to protect the chrome hold it firmly with vicegrips or channel locks, take adjustible wrench or chanel locks and remove the chrome nut holding the shower head on to the eustaceon(turn counter cockwise be careful not to drop the tools that wil damage the tile or fiberglass

after removing showerhead

turn on shower to force and debris out and place shwoer head into stream of water to clean out any deposits the head may have some type of screen to strain the water

this should work if the flow has not incresed then there is a need to adjust the flow valve at the control

to reinstall the shower head reverse procedure

if you have any teflon tape wrap it around the threaded portion of the eustaceon

good luck

hoe this works
