I would try to find a 3/8 to 1/2 NPT adaptor on Amazon.
If Danco has a website, it's likely that the instructions for your model are available in the support section of the website.

SOURCE: shower head leaks water when water is turned on

take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.

SOURCE: leak where Grohe shower head attached to the threaded pipe

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

Hi

Thank you for your query

If you just grab the showerhead with one hand and then unscrew anticlockwise the pipe underneath it should just screw off, once this has been done simply replace the O ring and rescrew

I hope this has been useful

I want to install a new shwer head fixture. I am having difficulty removing the ball joint adapter. any ideas?


You have to remove the whole pipe going into the wall, the ball is not seperate. Use a pipe wrench or something similar to remove it. A new showerhead pipe needs teflon tape wrapped clockwise on the threads and screwed into the fitting inside the wall. Now you can install any shower head you want.

Water comes out of the spout and shower head when I want to shower. This is after I replaced all the stems with new ones


The gate or bypass put of the tub spout is not stopping all of the water from coming out of it so that means it is not diverting all of the water to the shower head. The tube spout is not made for rebuilding in most cases but you could take it off and look for some sort of debris that may be causing this to happen.

I bought a Danco 3H-10H/C, Hot/Cold stem. The problem is, it seems to be setup for hot (clockwise closes the valve, counter clockwise closes it). Is it reversable? Or is it not really a hot/cold...


One of two things has happened. I'm assuming you only get hot water when you open the valve and that this is for a single handle control shower fixture. If so either this is the wrong valve for your shower control or it is installed backwards. Sometimes the valve can be installed at either 180 degree angles. See if it can be installed any other way. If so this may solve the problem.

There is a shut off valve that will screw onto the shower head extension pipe. It would fit on the pipe and then the shower head will screw back onto it.

Lowes or Home Depot should have them. Here is link to show you what to look for.

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.
