I would make an access panel on the back side of the shower, this way if I ever need to access the shower lines/fixture in the future I can do so, Hope this helped Tim, here is a website that may help:

The shower arm should be screwed into an elbow inside the wall. Unscrew the shower arm by putting your pipe wrench on the arm and unscrewing in a counter clockwise direction ( lefty loosey, righty tighty ) . Measure the length of the arm going inside the wall and make sure your replacement has enough length to reach. Teflon tape the inside end ( the end going in the wall ) and wrap a rag around the new arm, then screw into the elbow going clock wise , stopping when it starts getting tight and with the bend facing downward. Install shower head.

Take the gasket to your local hardware store and have them match it up.The answer is no, the gasket is not supposed to be split. It was probably tightened too much.

There should bea rubber gasket/washer that goes between threads on shower arm and inside of shower head. If this is a new shower head I would return it to place of purchace for exchange. If not you should be able to get the waher seperatly. If not you can get a cheap shower head and use the gasket from it. I also would recommend that you use several wraps of teflon pipe joint tape on shower arm and tighten snugly.I hop this helps you. Thank you a have a good year

I'm trying to replace my shower head and am unable to remove the old one from the shower arm diverter, any help would be appreciated


use a crescent wrench on the shower head. If the head alone won't budge, the entire head plus arm will unscrew. Then just pick up a new arm and some teflon tape and reattach both. good luck

Leak where Grohe shower head attached to the threaded pipe


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.
