I have all Kohler shower heads with 1 inch pipes; none of the currently available products, all at 1/2 inch pipe connections will fit; is there a 1" to 1/2" reducer piece available; Kohler does not have one, nor all the plumbing companies I have contacted. Can you help us? Thank you.

Low water pressure from my shower.


You probably have a water flow reducer in the shower head. It is a rubber disk with a few holes in it. Just remove it and put the shower head back on. They are installed at the factory to save our environment. (Mine are all removed)

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.

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

You need your old shower head and the new one, go to the hardware store and tell them you need a pipe adapter with a female side that fits the old one and a male side that fits the new one. They'll be able to pick it out for you.

What you're looking for is commonly called a pipe adapter or "nipple".

Make sure you fitted the rubber O ring on the end of the shower flexible hose. That will seal the water pipe.

I need a divert valve to fit a 15mm shower head pipe, for a hand shower facility . I have all bathroom fixtures in gold and a valve in gold would be a bonus. Thanks


The piece you need is readily available at most hardware outlets like Lowes and Home Depot. The piece probably is not gold ( since that would cost over $1000 but polished brass. Ask one of the sales staff to give you the correct size (typical sizes are 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch. Take the shower head with you so you be sure you get the correct size.

I can't get the old s bar off for a new shower head installation. It won't give. I'm referring to the pipe from the wall to the shower head. I have a new longer s bar.


remove trim ring around pipe and look at connection to be sure it is indeed threaded in. spray a penetrating oil,preferably with an extension tube,on to connection in the wall. 'rap' on the pipe with a wrench,the vibration helps the oil to penetrate.when it starts to move,go back & forth /spray it again,to clear corrosion as it's removed.

My toilet is a kohler low profile. There is not a


Hacked off the old seat? You mean the closet flange that connects to the sewer pipe?
That's the part that has the bolts. They go up through the toilet base.

If you have just a straight sewer pipe now, you can connect a new closet flange to it.

1.Hardware stores sell a rubber sleeve. This sleeve fits over the cast iron, or copper, or plastic PVC pipe, and the new closet flange has a stem that fits down in the sleeve. There are two large hose clamps, that come with this rubber sleeve.

The rubber sleeve is an adapter. It adapts the 4 inch sewer pipe, down to the 3 inch stem on the closet flange. (Toilets are known as a 'Water Closet', hence the flange that the toilet bolts to, is a 'Closet Flange')

Whatever size of rubber sleeve you need to adapt two pipes together, they have it.
The new closet flange is made of PVC plastic.
(Poly Vinyl Chloride)
The flange itself is about 1/2 inch thick, and has provisions for bolts. (Use Toilet Bolts, and nuts)
Be sure the closet flange sits flush to the floor. The 1/2 inch thick rim of the flange, sits on top of the floor. The flange is then screwed to the floor with countersink head screws. The slots allow the bolts to just slip in.

IF, the flange Does Not sit level on the floor, and the area for the toilet base is not level, you need to make a flat, level surface!
Do Not half step this, or you'll have a toilet leak from now until the time you fix the floor!

Tub shower combo... newly installed but leaks from shower head when turned on


Some shower heads require a rubber washer that would fit in the opening in the shower head. That may be all you need and would be the simplest fix. Check that first.
Sounds like you need some teflon tape available at any hardware store. The teflon tape should be wrapped around the pipe threads with 2 or 3 wraps and then screw the shower head on to the pipe. If the leak is in the wall, remove the shower head pipe from the wall pipe elbow and apply 2 or 3 wraps of teflon tape to the shower head pipe threads and reinstall to the elbow in the wall. You may need a pipe wrench if the pipe is real tight. Good Luck
