It requires a piper wrench or chanel lock pliers. If you are able to unscrew the old one,you wil have no problem screwing on the new one. Use teflon tape on the male threads when installing the new one. You can even screw it on by hand only needs to be tight enough that it does not leak . It unscrews counterclockwise looking at the end of the spray head.

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

Repair a shower head that leaks at the swivel:
  1. Unscrew the shower-head body from the swivel-ball ring.
  2. Find the O-ring or a similar seal inside. Replace it and screw the shower head back into place.
  3. Turn off the water supply and open the faucet handle to relieve water pressure.
  4. Carefully loosen the coupling nuts at the shutoff valves and at the base of the faucet.
  5. Carefully remove the supply tubes.
  6. Remove the locknuts that hold the faucet to the sink and lift the faucet out.
  7. Clean the area where the old faucet sat.
  8. As needed, install the new spray hose and supply tubes, if any, through their holes in the sink.
  9. Set the rubber gasket that came with the faucet on the sink where it will be mounted. If no gasket is supplied, apply plumber's putty.
  10. Set the faucet into position and center it.
  11. From under the sink, attach the faucet locknuts to hold it to the sink.
  12. Reinstall the supply lines, then turn them on and test the faucet. Turn it on carefully because the line and faucet have air in them.

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?


One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

The door on my subzero refrigerator is very difficult to open and, sometimes, almost impossible to open. I think magnets keep it closed with a rubber liner sealer. We love the refrigerator, but my wife is...


Sometimes that's caused by a slight vacuum created by the cooling process(you must have very good seals). Could you attach a handle or use a pry tool?

Try screwing it in opposite of normal threading. Left to tight not right to tight. Usually with anything liquid especially water connections threading is opposite.

I just installed the valve new. I have a shoewe head and a hand held that feed from the unit. It was intended to 1) serve the shower heas alone, 2) serve the hand held unit alone, 3) put water to both...


Assuming that your two heads are fed from the typical curved wall mounted shower pipe, what you need is a diverter valve. Removed both heads till it's down to just that curved pipe. Get a diverter valve from a plumbing supply store. Tell the sales folks that you want to install a diverter valve so that in one position, the hand held receives water and in the other, it cuts the hand held and puts it to the reg. shower head instead. They should give you a "T" sort of fitting. The female threads of this screws into that curved shower pipe. Then you will find two male thread ends. These connect to both your shower heads. Finally there will be a push/pull knob that is operated to control which head gets the water.

  1. snap the chrome adjuster offd2c6998a-2192-4f5b-9240-6bf56d4f6da0.jpg
  2. start unthreading centre of head. I used a paint scraper to leverage at first. The threads get loose soon to hand loosen.0588438c-31ce-4428-9378-28140fa37adb.jpg
  3. loosen the spray ring using a lever to get threads started. Hand loosen after that.It's got right hand thread so the outer ring will be turning counter clockwise.3e2cc1ab-35f5-4521-a05f-e1167596fb04.jpg
  4. Take flat rubber gasket out of centre of head and take screw out, then pry white nylon part out with tool. I used tweezer.a1f4f121-e0e1-450a-a9b8-8777342a3262.jpg
  5. Clean scraped parts in hot CLR solution or any vinegar will work as well. Reassemble with lubricant so it works like new. Most likely need for disassembly is clogging or a broken "o"-ring.6fff7106-1b7b-4330-a3c6-089ea42233cf.jpg
