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.

Our contractor just installed a new Grohe LadyLuxe kitchen faucet, and the arm is very stiff. He lubed it, but it tightens up immediately.


If the new faucet is not acceptable it should be repaired or replaced. It should still be under warranty.

How do you remove the spray head from the supply line on a Grohe Ladylux?


Ok not sure what you are asking , but here it goes. If you are wanting to take off the sprayhead simply pull the sprayer out and unscrew. If you want to remove the spray hose from the bottom of the faucet simply grab the red spring loaded connector near the TOP, and pull down spring to release (kind of works like an air hose quick connect). If you want to remove the arch the hose must be removed from the faucet first, then simply jerk up on the arch to remove. When the arch is removed, there is a specialty tool that came with the faucet (which most plumbers keep) to tighten or loosen the faucet. Hope this helps. Luckydog

I haven't had a lot of experience with Grohe brand but have had twenty eight years as plumber, 22 years as master plumber and the bottom port of every tub or tub/shower valve that I installed used the bottom as main supply port. As far as the instructions from manufacture like I said I have not used that particular brand much,so I really couldn't say. Hope this helps some. Thanks

How to change spray hose on grohe kitchen sink ladylux model


I have the Ladylux plus. I was confused on how to remove this as well. There is a quick release plastic piece, just pull down on the yellow part on the connector under the sink. Disconnect the plastic connector from the hose and pull it right out of the faucet. Very easy to remove in this case.

I would check to make sure that the top spray arm wasn't over tightened when it was installed. That spray arm threads onto a plastic supply tube which is easy to strip, which will cause it not to tighten properly and leak down the side of the dishwasher and acros the floor.

We installed a Grohe Relaxa Plus 10 years ago.


Likely a blockage in the line. Corrosion or other damaged parts. Try cleaning the filter screen first. Check for normal water flow without the shower unit attached to the spout. If OK, then the unit is the issue.

LOOSE FIXTURE


Unfortunately you cannot tighten the faucet from the top. you will need a 1/2" extended socket (the type for car repairs) and you will need to tighten it from underneath using an extension bar.
