How to install a new shower head.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Appropriate shower head replacement

  • Adjustable wrench

  • Teflon tape / plumber's tape

Guide:

Over the course of the use of your shower, you are bound to change out your shower head for a new, better one.

Installing a new shower head in place of the old one can be done in a few steps, and here's how:

  1. First, remove the existing shower head:  Place an adjustable wrench over the shower arm to hold it in place while you use your hands to take off the shower head by turning it completely counterclockwise.

  1. Once you remove the existing shower head, left exposed is the beginning threads of the shower arm that you now must cover with about 5 clockwise rounds/revolutions of Teflon tape/plumber's tape in preparation to screw on the shower head replacement shortly.

  2. Now, install the shower head replacement:  Per the shower head manufacturer's instructions, install any gasket/washer in the shower head, as may be applicable, and

     

    then screw on this shower head clockwise (in the same direction of the Teflon tape) onto the shower arm threads.  Follow this up with the tightening of the new shower head:  Place an adjustable wrench over the shower arm to hold it in place while you use your hands to tighten the shower head replacement by turning it completely clockwise; be careful not to over-tighten.  (As may be necessary, then install any shower head accessories, like a shower hose, per the shower head manufacturer's instructions.)

That's what it takes to install a new shower head in place of the old one.
