About the only way that you are going to make this work will bee with a 3/4x1/2 bell reducer and a 1/2x close nipple. You can get these with chromed finish but you will probably have to go to a plumbing wholesaler to find them. Thank you

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

HOW DOES TEFLON TAPE WORK?


Looking into the opening in your pipe, wrap the tape on in a clockwise direction. The smaller the pipe, the less wraps. 1/8" to 3/8" I use 2-3 wraps. 1/2" to 3/4" use 4-5 wraps. Teflon fills any gaps or voids that may occur between the male and female threads.

I have a Hans Grohe shower head extension #27479000 that requires a 1/2" male NPT nipple extending 5/8" from the finished wall surface. I found the female pipe thread in the 27479000 is threaded...


NPT and NPS are the same. Screw away! If your female thread is plastic and your male thread is metal, you must be careful not to overtighten as overtightening can crack the plastic on the female thread. Good luck, and don't forget your teflon tape. 4 to 5 wraps is good unless you have heavy duty gas piping teflon, then use less.

I am looking for advice on how to mount a Ball Head on the plate of a regular tripod, So far I have not found a Ball Head that has the same size thread in the bottom. Is an adapter available as a solution....


The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"

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.

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".
