Shower Heads without
- Remember, brass is a soft metal and very easily scarred by
wrenches. Damaged or scarred shower heads & fittings are
not returnable for exchange or refund. Most shower heads can
be easily installed without using a wrench.
- Remove old shower head and clean shower pipe threads.
- Wrap Teflon tape in a clockwise direction several (5 or more
turns) times around shower pipe.
- Hand tighten new shower head onto shower pipe as tight as
possible (a wrench is seldom necessary.)
- Turn water on and check for leaks. If there is a leak, try hand
tightening again. You may want to use something (i.e. a rubberized
jar lid opener) to get a better grip on the shower head.
- If the shower head is leaking where it is attached to the shower
pipe and hand tightening does not stop the leak, carefully use a
wrench to tighten slightly. Caution, be sure to use a heavy cloth
or piece of leather between your wrench and your shower head and
do not over tighten.
- Check again for leaks and repeat step 6 until shower head is
tight enough on shower pipe.
