Question about Water Pik & Wallmount Showerhead

Water leaks shere showerhead joins the shower stem

We have a 2-jointed rain showerhead.
Took it off the shower stem for cleaning and in re-assembling the leak comes where the shower stem from the wall joins the Water-pik shower head. One joint is at this joining; the other joint allows the actual round head to be set in different positions. I't the top joining that leaks. Help!

    Did it have a washer in it and did you use telfon tape on threads.

    Yes, to both questions. Is there something more we can do to bring about a "no leak" fixture?

When reconnecting the shower head to the pipe coming from the wall..

did you use some pipe tape, pro dope or another type of joining compound?

this seems likely to be the problem.. if you don't have any on hand, visit a hardware store and ask their staff for pipe tape for plumbing and you should be pointed into the right direction.

How do i install showerhead


REmove old showerhead using two wrenches, one to hold the stem from the wall steady, then twist the head counterclockwise. Use the same wrenches to install the new one, twisting the head clockwise to tighten. But before you put it on, clean the threads on the stem with a rag and wrap teflon plumber's tape around the threads clockwise 4-5 turns. That keeps it from leaking and makes it easy to remove in the future.

How do you replace the cartridge in a Ondine volume control valve for a shower


Turn off the water supply before you work on the control valve.

You need to remove the lever/handle first and covers so that you can see the stem of the control valve. Then, use a spanner to unscrew the stem/cartridge.

I have an American Standard Colony? bathtub faucet set that has been leaking at the spout. I thought the reason for the leak was the seats and rubber washers needed to be replaced. After doing so I still...


Check these items:

1. If you installed new faucet seats, did you add a little pipe joint compound to the threads before installing them?

2. Make sure the shower diverter is in the off position and you're not seeing water leaking from the spout that could be coming from the shower pipe or residual water from the shower head.

3. Make sure you have the correct faucet washers - some or tapered and some are flat and must fit the stem counter bore correctly and that the counter bore isn't damaged or the stem shaft isn't bent. Make sure the waskers are the correct hardness.

4. Make sure the screws that secure the faucet washers are tight, but not too tight. It doesn't hurt to add a little pipe joint compound to the screws.

Flow of water thru shower head is barely a trickle


There is a chance there is mineral deposits in the showerhead openings. You can try products sucha as limeaway by unscrewing the showerhead , soaking in the limeaway for a few minutes and rinsing with water. You may have to repeat this a few times to get it clean.

Shower diverter problem


It is very possible that a piece of rubber from the old washer or some debris has found its way into the shower diverter or the showerhead. The first thing to try, is to take off the showerhead and see if you get water without it. If you get water then your problem is solved!!! Puchase a new showerhead or take apart the old one and soak it in CLR or Lime-Away to clean it. If that doesn't do the trick than, Turn off your water supply to hot and cold. Remove the diverter (if possible) and inspect for debris. If you want you can also take out the hot and cold stems for a total inspection of the inside of the faucet. You can then flush out the inside of the faucet cavity with a Turkey Baster or something to that effect. Put it all back together ( use a bit of vasaline on all the rubber washers so they do not get stressed when re-installing) and you should be able to take a shower.....Also, if it was a cartridge you replaced, you may have inserted it 180 degrees opposite......Hope this helps.....Joe
