Question about Grohe 28.275.AV0 Relexa Plus Top 4 Spray Shower Head - Infinity Satin Nicke
Simple question...my contractor installed this 4 years ago......to tighten do i turn the Grohe fixture portion clockwise (Grohe Plus Top 4 spray shower head i believe)? water sprays out from where threaded pipe attaches to Grohe shower head.
do i need to remove and add plumbers tape to the threaded portion of the pipe coming out of the wall?
Grohe 28.275.AV0 Relexa Plus Top 4 Spray Shower Head
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

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.
