SOURCE: leak where Grohe shower head attached to the threaded pipe

using a pair of vice grips wrapped in a soft towel( to prevent scractching) turn the shower head in a counter clockwise direction to remove it then apply liquid teflon (real-tuf) to the threads on the shower arm and tighten the shower head but dont over tighten it liquid teflon is more effective at sealing leaks than teflon tape and it can be wiped clean

SOURCE: Grohtherm 3000. The shower looses pressure after

I'm not familiar with that specific shower but I assume you are refering to a hand-held shower head. Probably calcium build-up inside the head. Immerse it in Limeaway for an hour or two.

Hi, If you are talking about the slide rail (part that the shower handset clicks into) then there are covering caps hiding the screws underneath, 1 at the top of the rail, and 1 at the bottom. You will need a scraper or spatula or fine flat screwdriver to simply, but carefully flip them off in order to gain access to the screws behind. Have a look to see what type of screw has been used to fix the rail to the wall, and a use the correct screwdriver to turn clockwise and tighten up the screws. Take caution doing this and use a hand screw driver not a power drill, and turn until it feels tight enough that the rail does not wobble or feel loose any more. Any excess pressure in tightening could crack your tiles if the holes are drilled through them. Hope this was of some help to you.

Take the round cover plate off and it will make getting that part off easier. You will be able to use a screw driver to help in removing it.

I have an American Standard shower that drips out the shower head. When other faucets are used in the bathroom the water pours. I replaced the cartridge put it still drips.What could be the problem?


Hi kwbaker!
Assuming the cartridge is new and the water drips at both hot and cold settings, I would check your shower head. It is not uncommon for debris to collect in the screening there and clog the spray nozzle.

To check the shower head you'll need to remove it from its piping. Use two tools--I normally use an adjustable wrench and a strap wrench--to hold the wall pipe and simultaneaously turn the shower head counter-clockwise. The cresecent wrench grabs the hex-head of the shower head, while the strap wrench holds the chromed piping without scratching it.

Be sure you don't lose the rubber washer inside the pipe-to-shower head connection!

Once the head is removed, look inside it at the pipe side. You should be able to see into the mechanicals of the shower head--very often I'll see bits of rust or scale. Oftentimes its enough to rinse the pipe side of the head under a sink; in extreme situations it can be easier to replace the entire shower head.

To replace the shower head, use two tools in the same manner in which the head was removed: crescent wrench to turn the shower head, strap wrench to hold supply piping. This time, however, turn the shower head clockwise until it tightens snug.

Hope this helps!

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee - My tail light lens covers seem to be loose. When you open the rear deck, you can see two black plastic caps where I think there are screws behind them to tighten the actual lens...


those are not really screws. they are a "one time" clip which hold the lighs in place. I just went theu the same issue. I pull the caps with needlenose pliers, and cannot reuse the. Went to the jeep dealers and purchased 2 new ones at 5 euro (am in germany) a piece. so, I went to the hardware store and purchased 2 flat head screws and it works much better.

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.

If you are taking about then neck of the shower head this is what you must do. its no need to turn the water off to the house or to the bathroom first you will need a pair of channel locks and some Teflon tape. first remove the shower head if you dont want to scar the nut on the shower head place cloth between the pliers and the fitting, once removed (very important) turn the channel locks upside down stick one side of the blue handle up in the neck of the shower and rotate to your left to loosen if you are having a leak leak there it should already be semi loose, once removed wrap the threads with the Teflon tape and re-insert making sure it is tight, then wrap the the outer end of the neck with Teflon tape and place the head back on.The reason it leaked is because the plumber who installed it did not tighten it up completly because he wanted it to look straight coming out of the wall and the additional water pressure causes it to leak wheras the hot water causes it to expand and seal

Leak where Grohe shower head attached to the threaded pipe


Hello, Many shower heads have similar problems. (Very frustrating as you now know) The problem is the threads at the end of the (cheap plastic) shower neck are not flat. They are tapered (has an edge) - so it does not seat flush with the base of the shower head. Actually cuts around the rubber washer causing a leak.

What to do about it?

File the end of the neck some to create a flat surface. However, go slow. Be sure you can still screw on the shower head. Add a flat rubber washer in the shower head and plumbers tape on neck threads too.

Or Purchase a new shower neck that has a better design. The neck should unscrew from the front. Check and make sure you have an access behind the shower just in case you need to access the plumbing.

I replace the shower neck myself if there is an access.

How to Remove Shower Head


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.
