How far from the shower head do recessed lights have to be fitted

How far from the shower head do recessed lights have to be? Our ceiling in the shower is quite low and the shower head comes almost up to the ceiling close to the lights. I can't seem to get an answer to this. Are they subject to building regs?

Hello, I am putting in a grohe 35016 rough in valve. My shower has cold/hot 1/2" pex line coming in and i need to have one line going up into the ceiling for a rain shower head and another line going...


Hook the cold line up to right side and hot to left. Run line to wall shower off the top and use two 90 degree elbows with a short length of pipe turned slightly to the side of the line to wall shower. Run pipe up to ceiling height then 90 over and down to location you want forrain shower head. Hope I made this clear as I know sometimes I don't explain things well. Thank you.

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.

How to dissassemble shower head


The shower head is removable with a crescent wrench and a pair of pliers, or two pair of pliers. Put electric tape where pliers will grasp to avoid scratching. The shower head is attached to the extension pipe like a regular screw on fitting, so to loosen turn counter clockwise. As far as disassembling the head itself, some are meant to come apart, others not. Use white tefllon plumbing tape to re-install.

Please rate this answer for me. Thank you.

Leak in the shower is leaking water through the ceiling


SInce it is wet both under and behind the shower I would rule out the drain floor pan and drain system and think it most likely to be the pipe leaking from the mixing faucets to the shower head. Find studs directly behind shower faucet, n each side. Locate the center of the studs and put vertical lines up and down on the center line of the two studs closes to but outside the shower  faucet on each side. Approximate 6 inches or so  up and down for the height of the shower faucet (Valve, not head) Put Horizontal lines across between the two line at both the top and the bottom/ You now have a square.Using a Razor knife(Sometimes called a box knife, stanley 99a for example) cut into the lines of the square back and forth as deep as you can. Cut an x  acrossthe square corner to corner again as deep as you can . Lightly hit the center of the x until the drywall caves in . Cut the remaining drywall out for the square. Now while  the shower is running you will be able to see whee the leak is. Use pipe seal after disassembling the loose fiting or repair the leak iun what ever manner is necessary. Replace and repair the hole made in the drywall  with another piece of drywall, tape and joint cement. .
